    When will the villas open for reservations for 2018. I have tried to reserve a one bedroom at Kidani Village with no luck.

    Jambo Sherry!

    If you are looking to take a walk on the wild side, a stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is sure to make you roar! From the moment you step into the exotic lobby, you will feel as if you have been transported to an African savanna lodge.  But what really makes a visit to Kidani Village special is being able to watch exotic animals roaming throughout the vast savannas surrounding the Resort. There is simply nothing like it!

    Sherry, I wish I had a more definitive answer to provide, but unfortunately there is no specific time frame or guideline as to how far in advance guests can book cash reservations for Disney Vacation Club Resorts. While Disney holds a certain amount of inventory for cash reservations at all Disney Vacation Club properties, the inventory amounts are constantly shifting and the exact timelines as to when Disney decides to make such inventory available for cash bookings varies.

    If you are looking to book accommodations for next year and there is no availability for your desired dates, I suggest calling Disney Reservations at (407) 939-1936. Cast Members there may be able to provide you a better sense of what possible dates may be open for booking. Otherwise, you may wish to choose a different Resort, perhaps even a 1 Bedroom Suite at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, which would likely be the most similar accommodation to what you are trying to book at Kidani Village.

    I'm crossing my fingers for you Sherry, and hopefully with a little faith, trust and pixie dust you will be enjoying your next stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village!
