    We recently stayed at the animal kingdom kidani and LOVED the Mitch sponges. Is it possible to find out the brand so we may buy some for at home

    Jambo, Brandon!

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us your question about your recent time at the Walt Disney World Resort. I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed a memorable stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village! While my family has yet to stay at this Deluxe Villa Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of our favorite Resort hotels on property. The incredible room views, ambiance in the lobby areas, and dining options available make staying here a "bucket list" item for many!

    Returning home after a magical vacation is always rough, but having certain items at home can help make the transition back to "real life" a little easier. For example, every bathroom in my home features a Mickey-shaped foaming hand soap dispenser purchased from Disney Parks! These little touches can really add joy to any Disney enthusiast's day-to-day. Brandon, it's proven difficult to track down information about the mysterious little yellow sponges provided in the Deluxe Villas at the Walt Disney World Resort. However, I was able to connect with some Cast Members in Housekeeping at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village who informed me that the sponges in the Villas are purchased in bulk, and the only information on the boxes is "Eco." Hakuna matata, though, Brandon. I've found that the eco-friendly Scrub Daddy sponges are the most similar sponges widely available to consumers!

    My family loves having the comforts of home during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations, from dish soap and sponges to coffee makers and more! Did you know that Disney Resort hotels are also transitioning to wall-mounted shampoo, conditioner, and body wash dispensers in room showers vs. single-use bottles? These changes to Disney Resort hotel amenity offerings allow The Walt Disney Company to deliver on its 2030 Environmental Goals and provide an exceptional Guest experience. During your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, did the Cast Members provide information about (or an opportunity to donate to) the Disney Conservation Fund? All of these initiatives are part of The Walt Disney Company's mission to protect the planet while providing familiar comforts to Guests!

    Brandon, I hope this information helps to connect you with a suitable (Disney-inspired) sponge for at-home use! I'm wishing you many magical Walt Disney World Resort visits in the future. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to revisit us at planDisney anytime! We're here to help you make the most of your travels - wherever your journey may lead.

    Adventure is out there,
