    I have out of state family staying at Kidani Village. May I park at Kidani and join them on the shuttle to Animal Kingdom for the day?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kathryn!

    I am so excited about your family's upcoming stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village. As Disney Vacation Club Members, we had the opportunity to stay at Kidani Village recently, and you can tell your family to "Be Prepared" for a wildly wonderful week. Let's take a drive and discuss parking your safari vehicle. 

    I confirmed with a Cast Member that parking at Kidani Village would be at the discretion of the Security at Kidani Village on the day you wish to park. The Cast Member recommended having the name of your family's reservation as well as their reservation number ready to share with security as you enter. Admittance will depend on the parking lot's capacity and any other factors determined by Security. If you are unable to park at Kidani Village, my recommendation would be to drive around the corner to Disney's Animal Kingdom and be ready to greet your family as they arrive. During your day at Animal Kingdom, be sure to swing by the Nomad Lounge. The Churros with Strawberry-Guava Sauce are a family favorite snack. 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We are here for all of your Walt Disney World Resort adventures!

    Enjoy making magical memories!
