Staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is like being on an African safari, only you don’t have to fly halfway across the world. From the moment you step into the lobby, you’re transported into a stately lodge, straight out of the Serengeti. And then, of course, there’s a nature preserve with giraffes and wildebeest, right outside your window. Everything from the decor to the food celebrates the styles and flavors of the many countries of Africa. The outdoor heated pool is great for kids. It has water cannons, fountains, and a one-hundred and twenty-eight-foot long waterslide. Grab a drink from one of the two poolside bars and keep an eye on the little ones while they play on the children’s water playground. Get in touch with your inner athlete on the tennis and basketball courts. Check out the two well-equipped fitness centers: Survival of the Fittest and Zahanati Massage & Fitness Center. Zahanati offers massages and facials.
