    We are staying in a 1 bedroom villa at Kidani Village. I’m not sure I understand the parking. Is there underground parking beneath each of the “buildings”? The map shows just one entrance.

    Hi Stephanie, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian!

    Your question just happens to be about my Disney Vacation Club Home Resort, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village. While every Disney Resorts Collection hotel has its own special brand of Disney Magic, Kidani Village’s laid back and peaceful vibe has made me feel right at home. I often stay in other Resort hotels, but I keep coming back to Kidani because it truly feels like “Home” to me. 

    We typically rent a car when we visit Walt Disney World Resort, so I’m quite familiar with Kidani Village’s covered parking garage. You’re right that there is only one entrance to the parking area, but that’s not an issue because the Resort is one big building that has been carved up into sections with 4 distinct “elevators” to help you navigate and find your room more easily. 

    When you check in, the Cast Member who will greet you will tell you what section your hotel room is in. When you turn in to the parking garage, you’ll see signs that will direct you to one of the Resort’s 4 areas: Zazu (blue), Timon (yellow), Rafiki (green) and Pumbaa (reddish brown). Each section will be identified by its colour/character so you’ll be able to easily identify where you should park in order to minimize your walk towards your room. Please note that if you don’t see any spots nearby, you can always park in another section. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your travels throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Believe me, if it rains during your stay, you’ll be VERY happy to be heading back to a hotel that has a covered parking garage! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
