4 Reasons Why DVC Members Are Roaring about Animal Kingdom Villas

4 Reasons Why DVC Members Are Roaring about AK Villas

The tribe has spoken and DVC Members can’t stop talking about why DVC Animal Kingdom’s Villas are THE place to take your tribe! The two villas, Jambo House and Kidani Village are leaders of the DVC Villas pack, and are absolute must-stays, at least once for you and your family. See below why DVC lovers are giving these Animal Kingdom Villas ROARING rave reviews.

#1 Serene Resort Experience

Yep, that’s right DVC members have said that staying at an Animal Kingdom Villa, doesn’t feel like you’re in Florida….or Disney…more like Africa. The villas are spacious in size and more secluded than any of the other parks. This does mean that staying on these properties will take a little longer to get to the parks for the day. But, some DVC members state that they opt for less park days and more resort days in this serene environment, that’s like no other. We know we love Mickey Bars in front of Cinderella’s castle, now try drinking morning coffee 50ft away from a giraffe. It’s definitely on the bucket list. 

#2 Animal Encounters

Of course, Animal Kingdom has more animal encounters and experiences than any other Disney park, so it makes sense that its resorts would follow suit. It is in the name after all. The Animal Kingdom resorts house over 30 different species of African wildlife on the resort property. Your pack can get up close to other packs of zebras, giraffes, gazelles, kudu, flamingos and more. You’ve found hidden Mickey’s on Main Street USA, now you can find zebras on the sidewalk of Jambo House Villas. The resort also offers unique up close animal dining experiences. Reservations are highly encouraged. 

#3 Two Paws Up Dining

Even Simba and Nula would give the multi-cultural dining experiences in Jambo House and Kidani Village, two paws up. DVC members say this is some of the most robust cuisine found on any Disney property. And that’s really saying something. Let your paws dig into the wild offerings at Jiko- The Cooking Place or Boma-Flavors of Africa. Get your beak wet at Cape Town Lounge and Wine Bar, where you can enjoy speciality cocktails like the Victoria Falls Mist (Van-der-Hum Tangerine Liqueur, Melon liqueur, Banana liqueur, Sprite, and Citrus) and over a dozen kinds of imported wines.

#4 Big Space, Big Pool

The room offerings at the Animal Kingdom Villas reflect the size of the Animal Kingdom park, it’s more spacious than any of the other three. Disney has created the space for mammals of all kinds, to stretch out and run free. Did we mention that the resort has a 11,000 square foot tropical oasis, with wading pool, whirlpools and a beautiful sloping style pool entrance?

Count your DVC points, and pack your sunscreen, because these villas are ready for you and your tribe. Animal Kingdom Villas are calling, and you must go!
