    Is there still an internal bus from AKL-Kidani to AKL-Jambo?

    Hiya Lee! Welcome to planDisney! I’m so happy to be able to help you today.

    Oh boy, my heart is so happy to hear you will be staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. I have such incredible memories from my stay here, so I’m so excited for you to experience the magic. I mean, how cool to be able to watch animals roaming around an African savannah from right outside your hotel window, right?!

    Lee, I am happy to share that there is a shuttle to take Guests between Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. You can catch the shuttle bus right outside the lobby of each. It usually runs just about every 10-15 minutes, but if you’re headed over for a dining reservation at spots like Sanaa or Jiko - The Cooking Place, I’d recommend giving yourself a little extra time just to be safe.

    Speaking of Sanaa, I think it is one of the best restaurants in all of Walt Disney World. The world-famous Indian-style Bread Service will knock your socks off, so I’d say it’s worth a visit just for that! To make it even more special, you might even spot an animal or two as you are enjoying your meal!

    Did you know that you can borrow night vision goggles to view the animals on the savannah even after dark? Is that not just the coolest thing ever? All you’ll need to do is head over to the front desk at Kidani Village, and they will be happy to loan them to you to take a peek.

    I do hope this was helpful to you, Lee! If you have any questions ahead of your visit, please don't hesitate to stop by again! We here at planDisney just love to spread a little pixie dust and help friends like you make the absolute most of their vacation!

    Until next time,
