    Hi Panel, May I have an opinion please. I have a res for 5 at 2 bedroom villa at Kidani late August with a 5% room discount only. OKW has a 30% discount for 2 bedroom villa. Is it worth the extra money to stay at AK with the Savannah View? thx

    Hi Michael,

    This is a great question.  You are choosing between two resorts that I absolutely love.  My family loves Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village for the amazing theme, the beautiful decor, and of course, the magnificent ability to walk out on your porch in the morning and see a giraffe.  On the other hand, we so enjoy a stay at Disney's Old Key West Resort.  There, it is the relaxed theme and laid-back vibe that we love.

    If I had not stayed at either resort, and I knew I was not going to visit Walt Disney World again for a while, I would spend the extra money to stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village.  The experience there is truly unique.  If you want to save the money; however, I do enjoy a laid-back vacation at Disney's Old Key West Resort.  You just cannot lose in my opinion!

    I hope that this helps you in making your decision, Michael.  Please do not hesitate to come back and ask if you have any further questions - we would love to help you plan your vacation, whichever resort you choose.
