    We are staying at Kidani for Thanksgiving. I read that the store to get your refillable mug filled does not open till 7am. Is there any place to get your mug filled with coffee before then? Thank you for your help!

    Jambo Susan,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We just returned from a stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. It is one of our Disney “homes,” and each time I visit, I find something I love about it even more. My top “pick” of the Resort has to be the animals, though! We spent almost an hour last weekend watching the kudu and zebras play!

    You are correct, Johari Treasures opens at 7:00 AM each morning. This gem of a shop not only has coffee for your refillable mugs, but it also has a curated selection of snacks, drinks, and other delightful treasures. You aren’t limited to the drink station here, The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House also has a refill station. But, we need to let our fantastic Cast Members get some rest, so it also opens at 7:00 AM.

    Never fear Susan, because another fantastic option is your kitchen! The kitchen in your Villa has a 12 cup drip-style coffee maker that comes with a complimentary coffee service, which includes a bag of Joffrey’s Coffee, creamer, sweetener, and filters. If you are staying in a Deluxe Studio, plan on a smaller version of the drip-style coffee maker, and Mousekeeping will happily replenish it at any time. If you prefer something other than Joffrey’s, I would suggest you either pack your favorite grounds or consider grocery delivery. There are several options for grocery delivery to your Resort, including through Disney Vacation Club, Garden Grocer, Amazon Prime Now, and Instacart.

    chEARs to a caffeinated vacation!
