Temporary Parking Change at Kidani Village Animal Kingdom Lodge

Deb's Digest Blog

This past weekend I was at a guest at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I was quite surprised that the "short term parking" area at Kidani Village was closed and blocked off. This parking area has always been convenient for check-in parking or getting something from Johari Treasures which has groceries and sundries.

Cast members told me this is "temporary" but gave no dates for how long this will be in place. I was informed that if you are checking in, tell the Valet and they will hold your car for 30 minutes for "free". After 30 minutes your car will be automatically valeted and you will incur a charge. The reason I was given for this change is that people were abusing the "short term parking" area.

The self-parking alternative is the underground parking garage. While there is a huge sign indicating Elevators to Lobby, unfortunately there are only 2 parking spaces in that immediate area. The other spaces are reserved for WDW Official Vehicles. The next closest parking area would be the Timon area.

We also returned from a week at Kidani Village. I asked 3 different cast members about the short term parking situation & received three different answers. I was told "it is probably only for the day". We were told it was temporary for construction vehicles. We were curious if they are invisible construction vehicles & the cast member just shrugged her shoulders. I was also told it is now handicapped parking. Hopefully in the near future the resort staff can all get on the same page & stop giving uninformed guesses?
