    Hello! Does the internal shuttle still run between Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House and Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village? We will be staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House and we were wondering if there are other options other than walking to Sanaa

    Jambo, Dana! Welcome Home, and welcome back to planDisney! I’m currently writing you from the lobby of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, so I’m wild with excitement to answer this question for you! 

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village are two of my favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts! I love how it feels as if you’ve been transported to an African savanna, and nothing beats watching giraffes and zebras roam while you sip coffee or wine on your balcony. The dining at these Resorts is unbeatable, and Sanaa is one of my very favorite restaurants in all of Walt Disney World Resort! I find myself daydreaming about the Indian-style Bread Service and the Cilantro-Coconut Vegetables. YUM!

    In order to get from Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House over to Kidani Village, there is, in fact, an internal shuttle that connects the two Resorts. The shuttles run approximately every ten minutes, and you can catch the shuttle right outside of the Resort lobbies. So, if the wild trek from one Resort to the other isn't your thing, you can enjoy the quick and relaxing lobby-to-lobby service before or after your feast!

    Dana, no trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House is complete without trying some of their famous Zebra Domes! Did you know that you can mobile order these perfectly sweet treats from The Mara?! Just pick up a packaged to-go order of these delicious desserts and save any extras (if there are any!) in your room's fridge. DELISH!

    Soon, you'll be arriving to Walt Disney World Resort to begin your wild adventure, and I'm wishing you THE most magical time! Stop by any time with any of your Disney vacation planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon!
