    Cannot wait for our stay in a two bedroom villa at Kidani Village. I have seen that we may need to bring extra laundry soap. Should we bring extra dishwasher detergent?

    Hello, Rose!

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village
    is a family favorite and is one of our Disney Vacation Club Home Resorts. If you have not stayed here before you are in for a real treat! In my opinion, the resort is probably one of the most unique resorts in the United States. Where else can you make yourself a cup of coffee and watch the morning unfold as the giraffe and zebra munch on their breakfasts, right from the comfort of your balcony?

    The 2 Bedroom Villas are lovely and spacious, and our vacations are so much more enjoyable with room to spread out. You will find a small bottle of liquid dish soap, which should be plenty for a week’s visit. You will also find one to two packets of powdered dishwasher detergent in your room upon arrival. Additional packets are no charge, simply call housekeeping from your villa phone. I don’t pack dishwasher detergent for our trips.

    In the past, it was the policy that you were charged for additional boxes of laundry soap, but that policy changed last winter. You can receive additional complimentary packets of laundry detergent on request. Now that I have said that, I should tell you that I still prefer to bring my own detergent pods. With an active family, including three teenage sons, we do a lot of dirty laundry.  I prefer using a detergent I know and trust, and that has fabric softener right in the same pod. And since we do on average two loads a day, it’s just easier for me to bring my own rather than continually call for additional detergent. Depending on how often you will use the washer may be the determining factor for you.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Rose, and that you’ll return to us at planDisney if you have any additional questions before your trip. We are here to help!

    Wishing you a Magical Day!
