    Love ya! We are staying at Kidani Village next month in a savanna view room. Where should I request our room to be to get the best view of animals & not have a long walk to amenities, pool, mug refill, (we will have a car so don't need buses). Thanks

    Howdy Beth! We will be staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village soon and I cannot wait!!!

    This is such a great question and a popular one as well. I have spoken with quite a few Cast Members and they all agree that the best thing for you to do is to take two steps.

    1. Contact Disney Vacation Club Member Services (or Disney Reservations) and ask them to modify your reservation with your villa request.
    2. When you are 10 days out from your check-in date, contact Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village at (407) 938-7400 and confirm that your request is noted.

    This is actually a better option than asking for a specific area or room number as you will have a greater chance of being accommodated. Of course, there are no guarantees and room selections are based on availability but the Cast Members who assign the rooms will do all they can to find a perfect villa for you! 

    As a side note...thanks so much for the "Love ya!" as you started your question!  Right back at you!!!  I love all of the Guests I am able to "chat" with!  This is such an incredible honor to be a part of this amazing panel!!  Thanks so much for adding some magic to my day!!!

    Please let me know if you have any further questions and have a magical day!!!
