Disney Vacation Club to expand to Animal Kingdom Lodge
The Disney Vacation Club announced on October 11, 2006 that the Animal Kingdom Lodge would be the home of the next DVC resort at Walt Disney World. Rumors have been circulating for some time that the Contemporary was next on the list, but in recent weeks the focus had shifted to Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The first phase will be the opening of 134 remodeled existing rooms at the resort in late 2007. The next phase will be the opening of a new building containing 324 villas.

The first phase of Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom Villas time share is complete.
Disney last month wrapped up work on the last of 109 units that have been converted from hotel rooms to time shares on the upper levels of the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
Construction is continuing on the project's much-larger second phase: A 340-unit annex next to the lodge that has been dubbed "Kidani Village." Disney says the expansion will include a 120-seat sit-down restaurant, a 4,700-square-foot swimming pool with a water slide and two spas, plus tennis, shuffleboard and half-court basketball, among other amenities.
Disney expects to complete the second phase during the spring of 2009.
The Animal Kingdom Villas are Disney's eighth time share and the sixth at Disney World. The company is in the midst of building new time shares at Disneyland in Southern California and has announced plans to develop a time share and hotel resort in Hawaii. Construction records also suggest Disney is building a time-share addition to the Contemporary Resort in Orlando, though the company has not confirmed the project.
We stayed in a 2 Bedroom at AKV and loved it. It was plenty of room for the 5 of us. Ok, the walk to the room was a little far, but the Boardwalk is far worse. But aside from that, it's a great resort! _________________ When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.
