    Does Kidani Village offer the same activities as Jambo House at AKL? For example, the night vision goggles and all the fun educational experiences and stations throughout the lobby and outside? Thank you

    Hi Kristin,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family absolutely LOVED our stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, and I think that yours will, too! We felt completely immersed in African culture and loved all of the artwork, music, culture, and wildlife!

    While all special programs are subject to change, I'm happy to let you know that yes, you'll find cultural and animal experiences at both Kidani Village and Jambo House. They won't be the exact same experiences, but I see that as a positive since Guests of one resort are entitled to all of the recreation and amenities of both resorts. You'll be able to enjoy so many unique and special experiences, so be sure to ask for a Recreation Calendar when you arrive and take advantage of as many programs as you can! Did you know that it's just about a ten minute walk or short ride on a complimentary shuttle bus between the two Resorts? I'd definitely encourage you to explore both of them during your visit.

    It's an absolutely amazing experience to view wildlife in their own habitat at night, so I'm pleased to let you know that there are currently night-viewing opportunities at the Uzima Overlook at Jambo House or the Kidani Rock Overlook at Kidani Village. You'll find a Cast Member at both locations with night vision goggles that you'll be able to use. So cool!

    As you're preparing for your trip, Kristin, please let us know if you have any other questions! We're always here and happy to help. I hope that you enjoy your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas and have a truly magical vacation!
