    What hotel stops on the way to kidani village on magical express?

    Hi Norman,

    A stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is wonderful! The resort is so beautiful, and the ability to see amazing animals outside of so many windows is unique. One of my favorite things to do from a savanna view villa is to wake up and have my morning coffee on the balcony while I peacefully watch the sun come up and the animals graze.

    It is great to take advantage of Disney's Magical Express transportation from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World resort hotel. This takes all of the worrying out of getting from the airport to your vacation destination!

    Which resorts are grouped together and in which order they are dropped off from Disney's Magical Express is determined by where guests are heading at any given time, so it can vary. You may find that your motorcoach stops at a couple or few other resorts first, or your resort may be first. I asked another Disney Parks Moms Panelist who recently took Disney's Magical Express to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, and she let me know that for her trip, the motorcoach stopped first at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, then at Disney's Animal Kingdom - Jambo House, and then at Disney's Animal Kingdom - Kidani Village. This is one possibility, but there are others as well!

    To be safe, I usually tell guests to budget about 90 minutes from the time you land at the airport to getting to your resort, which should factor in time to walk to Disney's Magical Express at the airport, wait for a motorcoach if you need to, travel time to Walt Disney World, and any other resort hotel stops the motorcoach may need to make before your resort.

    Please do let us know if you have any further questions, Norman!
