    Hello there, Steve! Thanks for stopping by planDisney and allowing us to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village invites Guests to discover African tradition while also exploring native animals of the region from a variety of areas within the actual resort! This Disney Resort hotel boasts over 30 species of African wildlife as well as restful pool areas to relax by, delish dining locations that offer eclectic dishes from around the continent, and engaging animal programs that will delight any animal enthusiast.  

    In addition to these wonderful amenties, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Villas also offers complimentary transportation across Walt Disney World Resort! Guests can receive rides to Disney Springs during their operating hours for the day and can travel to Disney theme parks beginning 45 minutes prior to opening until one hour after park closing. 

    In my experience, bus rides to the Disney theme parks from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani typically take under 20 minutes depending on time of day and the specific theme park you are visiting. Since Magic Kingdom and Epcot are the furthest theme parks from this resort, they tend to take the longest amount of time to arrive at via bus service while Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a very quick ride due to its close proximity. 

    I find that taking Resort Transportation is the perfect opportunity for me and my family to get ready for our day of adventure. This can include verifying our plans for the day, preparing bags to go through security, or simply relaxing prior to all of the excitement! If you haven’t done so already, I would highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience app on your smart phone before your vacation as well! This app allows you to access many different parts of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation such as itineraries, dining reservations, theme park tickets, and more right from your phone!

    I hope you have a magical time visiting Walt Disney World Resort! Best of luck continuing to plan for your upcoming visit!
