    We are currently staying at a room in Kidani Village We'd like to visit the main gift shop in the Animal Kingdom lobby What time does Jambo House currently close this week ?? We are here until Thursday evening Thanks for your help 🔥✅

    Hello Brandy!

    I hope you are having an absolutely magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village has been my family’s Disney Vacation Club Home Resort for more than ten years and it is still a favorite. There is something about coming home to those beautiful lanterns and the soft sounds of drumbeats that I find both relaxing and magical at the end of a busy day in the parks.

    At this time, while The Mara quick service is open at Jambo House,  Zawadi Marketplace, the main gift shop has not reopened. You will find Johari Treasures at Kidani Village is open until 10 PM each night this week. If you’d like to venture over to Jambo House to dine at The Mara, I highly recommend asking if they have their famous Zebra Domes for dessert. They are one of my favorites and are something you can only find at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. I usually get a second container to-go and take it back to my room for a late-night snack!

    I’m sorry the larger gift shop isn’t open yet, but I hope you find something special to remember your visit to Kidani Village. I too am looking forward to the day when all our favorites are reopened.

    Wishing you a magical trip, Brandy!
