    Hi there - I am thinking about staying at the Animal Kingdom Kidani this summer, but read there might be construction going on? Can you tell me what is being worked on and if it will be loud? (plan to be there mid-August).

    Jambo, Natasha!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney. How exciting that your upcoming stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas is on the horizon. I love this Disney Vacation Club Resort as watching the animals grazing in the savannah and being free to roam around all day is definitely the "mane" event at this Resort.

    Natasha, there is construction at Kidani Villas currently taking place as, from time to time, Disney Resorts have reached a point in their circle of life to need some refurbishments.  This work is projected to last through September of this year, though that is subject to change. They haven't specified what precisely they are working on, other than buildings around the Resort.  I checked with Guest Services, though, and confirmed that while Guests may see and hear construction during this time, the work is done during the day.  So you shouldn't be awakened by any loud noises other than maybe Simba working on his "roar."

    I hope this helps you, Natasha. If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back and see me and I'll be glad to help you. Enjoy being free to run around all day, and free to enjoy Disney all your own way.

    Asante Sana,
