    Next year we have decided to branch out and stay at AKL at either Jambo or Kidani but as I've only stayed there once I am not sure which area would be best, I have 2 young girls that love the water and I don't care about a good view any thoughts?

    Hi Aisling,

    How exciting! One of the fabulous reasons that Disney Vacation Club appealed to us was the ability vacation in so many different ways! We love the flexibility to relax to the sounds of the steel drum at Disney's Old Key West Resort one vacation, watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from our balcony at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort the next, and drink our morning coffee with a giraffe after that! I'm thrilled to read that you are branching out.

    We really enjoy Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village with our young daughters. Like Dory, they would choose to "Just keep swimming" absolutely all day at Samawati Springs and Uwanja Camp. Nearby, Maji Pool Bar is available to keep our bellies full so we can play all day.

    I appreciate that while this is an exciting Disney Vacation Club with so much to see and do, we feel as though we can escape from the bustle of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge in our own oasis. Also, we have found that Walt Disney World bus transportation is slightly more convenient from this area.

    I hope this helps! Enjoy your next, wild Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Aisling!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
