I will agree the filter not working is less than ideal, but in the write-up for Kidani Village (and all the other resorts) they have a section on “Best and Worst Room Views…” - here’s what they say for Kidani:
“The best views in Kidani Village are the north-facing rooms near the bottom and middle of the backward 3. Try rooms 7X38–7X44, 7X46–7X52, 7X06–7X11, 7X68–7X82, and 7X61–7X67 (X = numbers 0–9). These overlook the savanna next to Jambo House’s Kudu Trail rooms and beyond into undeveloped woods. West- and south-facing rooms in the bottom half of Kidani Village overlook the parking lot; west-facing rooms in the top half have either pool or savanna views.”
Only a few sections up from the bottom: https://touringplans.com/walt-disney-world/hotels/disneys-animal-kingdom-villas
The other thing to figure out is what’s really important to you in a room. View? Access to Pool? Quiet? Close to Transportation? Close to Food? There are a ton of variables and odds are you may rate things important in a room differently than I would. I’d suggest playing with the Maps on Touring Plans and looking at different room options/views and figuring out how they fit with your priorities and then making a room request based on that.
