The short term parking for Kidani Village at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas is currently unavailable to arriving guests.
Covered parking structure at Kidani Village
Our friend Deb Wills from Allears.net reports that modifications have been made to the parking situation at Kidani Village. The short term spaces located near the resort lobby are blocked off and signage directing guests to this area has been eliminated.
These spaces are most frequently used by arriving guests looking to check-in before proceeding to the larger underground parking structure. At present, guests are being informed that the valet will hold their vehicle for 30 minutes at no charge. After the 30 minutes are up, normal valet fees will apply.
Guests can also utilize the covered parking garage, taking the elevator up to lobby level.
After inquiring, Wills was told that the closure was a result of guests abusing the short term parking. However, staff members could provide no details on what--if any--modifications were planned or how long until adjustments would be complete.

I was thinking perhaps they should use this lot for restaurant guest parking, instead of them taking up the parking in the garage. Require guests to use a MB to get into the garage.
