With the opening of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney Vacation Club has a presence at all but one of the Magic Kingdom monorail resorts, but that’s going to change. [Read more…]
Site work has begun on an expansion of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. [Read more…]
The new Kidani Village expansion wing is scheduled to open Sept. 1. It will feature 160 two-bedroom equivalent vacation villas. The additional rooms complete the build-out of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas for a total of 449 two-bedroom equivalent vacation villas at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The new six-acre Pembe Savanna, adjacent to the expansion, will treat Kidani guests to a rare look at okapis, a typically shy animal closely related to the giraffe. The distinctly marked okapis, along with red river hogs, impala, waterbuck, blue cranes and spur-winged geese, will claim Pembe Savanna as their new home.
