    We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge soon and wanted to know if they are offering activities for the kids like campfires, outdoor movies, and pool parties? I would also love to know what dining locations are open at the resort. Thanks!

    Hey there Chelsey!

    Thanks for visiting planDisney! It's so exciting to hear that you are starting out your New Year with a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Chelsey, I know you mention your upcoming stay is at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. I am wondering if you're referring specifically to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village? I ask because, as I write this, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is currently not one of the Resorts open and accepting reservations. I'm happy to share that Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is one of my favorite Resorts, and I think you have an amazing stay awaiting you. We've enjoyed multiple vacation stays at the Resort, including an extended 10-day stay when I celebrated my 50th birthday. I found the views at the Resort breathtaking, and the foods so delicious. I still rave about the Bread Service. 

    The best suggestion I can offer to find out about recreation and dining offerings currently available at your Resort is to check out the Disney Resort Hotels: Know Before You Go web page and take a look at the updates for Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village. I encourage you to check for updates because the availability of offerings could change. For example, I understand that The Mara Quick Service dining location had been re-opened but has now just closed again. As I write this, I can see that Sanaa, Kidani Breakfast at Sanaa, Sanaa Lounge, and Maji Pool Bar are currently available. I highly recommend Sanaa, and if you think you'll want to dine there, I'd encourage you to look into reservations. For activities, I see that Pools, Poolside Activities, Movies Under the Stars, Fitness Center, Community Hall, Sports Courts, and Playground are showing as currently available. I recommend checking for updates as your vacation arrival approaches so you can get the latest information for your Resort stay. 

    Chelsey, I hope you get to savor the vibes, views, and delicious foods at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village as much as we did!

    Enjoy your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
