Cash Reservations Being Accepted at Kidani Village

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in Animal Kingdom Villas News

On August 24, Disney began accepting cash reservations for the Kidani Village development at Disney's Animal Kindgom Villas for check in dates after May 1, 2009.

While Kidani Village will largely play host to Disney Vacation Club members, Disney itself will also maintain ownership at the facility.  The Disney-owned points are used to offer rooms to the general public through normal channels (Disney Central Reservations, website, travel agents, etc.)  

Owners at the Animal Kingdom Villas are currently able to use points for booking stays 11 months in advance of their arrival date for check-ins after May 1st.  Owners at other DVC resorts can begin booking Kidani Village 7 months in advance of their arrival.
