    Hi, I would love to stay from December 23-January 3. However I would love to split my vacation into two different hotels. We are 4 adults and 3 teens. The first three days in Kidani then the remaining in Contemporary or the opposite?

    Welcome back, Tatiana! 

    You really can't go wrong with either order of stay! You've selected two amazing, and very different resorts to enjoy your vacation at. If this were my vacation, I would stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village first, followed by Disney's Contemporary Resort. Here's why:

    • While Kidani Village is a truly unique resort, it is pretty remote in its location on property. And with your vacation being during a busy time, I would limit my stay here to the shorter three-day stay. Transportation by bus is your only option and it will be standing-room-only. 

    • Being at the Contemporary during the peak time of shortly after Christmas until after New Year's, means you get to enjoy a vast array of activities, with multiple modes of transportation. Not to mention, you'll be able to see the New Year's Eve Fireworks extravaganza right from your resort! You really are right in the middle of the magic in this location. And by staying here longer, and last, you'll be in a more central spot. 

    I hope this helps you in your planning, Tatiana! You've come to the right place for helpful tips and planning advice.
