    We will be staying in a Kidani Village Studio in September 2019. We were wondering if the coffee machine is a Kerrigan or a standard type that equites coffee pods. Thanks

    Jambo Michael!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My husband is British, so we are tea drinkers in our family, but I understand entirely the NEED for a caffeinated start to the day. Thankfully, staying in a Disney Vacation Club Villa makes it super simple!

    The kitchenette in your Deluxe Studio will have a classic drip-style coffee maker that comes with complimentary coffee service. This includes a bag of Joffrey’s Coffee, creamer, sweetener, and filters. Mousekeeping will happily replenish it at any time, but 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.

    After you jump start your day, consider a “roaringly” delicious dinner at Jiko - The Cooking Place. In honor of the 25th anniversary of "The Lion King," you can indulge in an exclusive three-course menu that celebrates Simba’s story! During the dinner, you will be entertained by wildly talented musicians. They will perform traditional African melodies as well as ones from the beloved movie soundtrack. The celebration is a limited-time offering, so pounce on your reservation! You can book online or by calling (407 WDW-DINE (407 939-3463).

    Asante Sana!
