On our last trip to WDW, we stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge's Kidani Village studio room with a Savannah view! Since we had never stayed at this resort, or at a DVC, this was a whole new experience for us; but we are glad to report that it was a positive one that we would happily do again!
If you are considering staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge's Kidani Village, we some detailed photos of our studio room which we hope will help you make your decision; and if not, we still hope you will enjoy a little look inside this Disney resort room!
Every door displayed an African shield!
The bedspread was a nice splash of color in the earthy room, and we really liked the mosquito netting draped behind the headboard! Also, there were a lot of pillows! Behind the four throw pillows pictured, there were four more fluffy white pillows to enjoy.
A DVC studio has only one queen-size bed, but it does come with a full-size sleeper sofa which we found to be very comfortable!
Our bathroom was massive! Even though a double sink would've made it even better, we enjoyed the counter space and the generous shelf space for storage. To our right was the shower; and to the left, in a separate room, was the toilet.
This wardrobe provided extra storage space, as well as blankets and sheets for the sofa. The carved wood contributed to the room's theme as well.
Did you notice the Hidden Mickey's in this carved dresser/entertainment center? Also, our room featured a flatscreen television and a DVD player!
The studio kitchenette is small; but definitely convenient. We enjoyed having a microwave and small refridgerator, as well as a toaster and coffee maker. We brought our own bottled water to keep in the fridge to save some cash; and the toaster came in handy when we needed a quick breakfast on our way to the parks in the morning.
Here is a view of our shower and tub. The tile featured African wildlife; and be sure to keep an eye out for Hidden Mickey's in the curtain! We are pleased to report that this showerhead offered adequate shower pressure; and if you ever had stayed at a value resort, you know this is a big deal!
Our balcony had two chairs and a table; and while there are a variety of views with different price tags, we had a Savannah view room which had a prime view of the wildlife outside. It was a blast to head out on the balcony each morning or evening to see what animals we might find! Lastly, if you are a Lion King fan, look for the Lion King characters hidden in this delicate, lacy curtain!
Here's a little sample of our view and the widlife we enjoyed! Our favorites were the giraffes, but there were other animals who would stroll by for a visit, including a variety of birds, zebras, ostriches, and more!
Overall, we found the studio room at Animal Kingdom's Kidani Village to be warm, spacious and truly a home away from home. Other amenities not pictured including an iron and ironing board, iHome station, a table and chairs, a floor lamp, safe, and two small coffee tables. There was also an extra closet.
We would definitely recommend this type of room for families due to the space, amenities, and experience. However, for families with more than two children, it will definitely be a tight squeeze. Also, while this resort was beautiful, it is spread out meaning that you might have to walk a good distance to reach the lobby depending on your room location.
Now we always enjoy hearing for you, so be sure to share your own experiences or interest in Animal Kingdom Lodge!
