A few from May, 2008....can't wait to be back in three weeks (without the construction view)!

(The room views are what they considered a partial sav with a slight construction view)

Thanks for sharing. I would love to see more. I leave in 25 days for a trip to the AKL with my mom. She has never been to WDW before and asked if I would take a trip with her. How could I say no? :rotfl2: I have never stayed here before and I am so excited. :banana:

In 2006 we booked a regular room and were upgraded at check in to pool view, but not savannah view. We heard no noise from the pool at all unless we went out on the balcony. Room wise, I would think they are about the same unless you get a suite. We had a king room.

I'll see if I can post pictures.

Wish I could go back - but financially we can't afford it right now. Really missing my happy place.:sad1:

If you can swing the extra money for a Savannah view, it is worth the extra expense, IMO. These are pictures from our balcony.

I finally downloaded the pictures off my camera from our Club Level stay in October, so if there is interest I can post a "picture orgy" from AKL! :rotfl: here are some I have ready.
We are back in Disney in December, but at CBR. Those that have upcoming vacations at AKL are going to love this resort! :thumbsup2

The sign and the "campfire" you will see when you reach the driveway into AKL. I almost got run over by 2 buses getting these pictures!

The weather is melt-in-your-shoes hot! It's sweltering, but it's livable. Hopefully another front will come through and cool things off a bit. I haven't been to the parks yet, but from what everybody says they are crazy busy with lots of crowds. I'll see for myself later on today.

Enjoy your trip!

Got a few more to add from last week, as I just got back from Disney. I was at AK lodge on two days while staying over at OKW - I love visiting the lodge even when I'm not staying there...and of course dinner at Boma or Jiko merits another trip (it was Boma this time that drew me back a second time). Here's a bunch of my pics from this most recent trip:

We are going in 4 days (whoo hoo!!:), and have booked a std room. We would love an upgrade but know we probably won't get one. When i get back I am going to have a go at a trip report so I will let you know how we get on in a standard :)

Surprisingly, a Pool View room doesn't cost all that much more (maybe $10 a night) than a Standard View - and you avoid any possibility of a "parking lot" view ... :idea:

We only have a standard but I never really look out the window/spend time on the balcony so I'm not too upset about it. Hopefully it's not too bad, though. :goodvibes

See post #48 for my pool view pics. I have three, and they were taken from the fifth floor. Hope they help! Personally I would ask for the third floor to get a good view of the pool. Any lower and you could have a lot of vegetation in front of your balcony, and the noise will be a lot louder at night. :goodvibes

Hi, does anyone have standard view pictures especially looking outside and also views from the front of the resort towards the rooms. I asked for Ostrich trail on our upcoming trip but am worried about construction and views. No pool views available and I can't afford to go up to savanna cause we are staying 9 nights.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa 12/6-13. I was disappointed at first that the room overlooked the construction, but there was nothing they could do (or were willing to do) so we just moved forward and it all worked out fine. It actually was neat to watch the progress during the week - they were really getting a lot done each day. Here are a few pics from our trip.

March '08 (back in a few short weeks!!) -- originally booked standard view on a convention rate and was updated to "partial" savannah view w/ bunk beds on the sunset savannah, fourth floor central (can't remember room #)

Sorry about the size of some of these... Photobucket not cooperating as usual.

Really, I LOVED LOVED LOVED this small savannah (Sunset) -- it seems we got closer to the animals and watching the giraffe feeding every afternoon was AMAZING.

Anyone have Animal Kingdom DVC studio pics?

Anyone have pics of the inside of the rooms? Do all the rooms have flat screen LCD's now?

I kknow they have flat screens in the DVC rooms. I am not sure if they have them in all the rooms. I have not uploaded all of my pics from my recent vacation (Feb. '09) but here are some:

First, what great pictures everyone has posted!! Ya'll are just making my decision to stay at the AKL easier and easier...

can someone tell/show me the AKL studio at club level? DH and I are trying to figure if the room is roomy enough for 3 adults and a toddler.

Thanks!

Thanks for the great pics of the AKL. We are going in September '09 and we stayed at the Poly last time - thought we might try this. My granddaughter thought I was kidding about wild animals outside the hotel - then I found this thread and showed her! Her mouth fell open (she's 7) and she is quite excited (kind of like her Nana!).

If it's not too bothersome - can you scope out where a club level studio is located, and if at all possible pictures?

Thanks in advance!

What a great thread! I love looking at all of these pics, it gets me just that much more excited about our trip in August!
I have been to WDW once before (was in town for the MOPS convention and a few of us hit Downtown Disney one evening, then MK the next afternoon/ evening) but DH and DS have never been. DS is 5 next week, and he loves animals, so we are all really excited about AKL.
I have a strange picture request, does anyone have a picture of the closet? I am trying to figure out how large it is, but cannot really tell by room layout or the pics I have seen so far.
Thanks,
Kelli

I love looking at all the pictures! We are going to be staying at AKL for the first time May 1-8th. Does anyone have pictures of the drink dispensers in Mara? We will buy some resort mugs only if there are other choices besides soda for the kids. Any type of apple juice, fruit punch, lemonade?? Thanks in advance, Jenny

I have a strange picture request, does anyone have a picture of the closet? I am trying to figure out how large it is, but cannot really tell by room layout or the pics I have seen so far.
Thanks,
Kelli

No pictures - but I would say it's "standard size" - with two sliding doors (kinda like the one I see now when I turn my head to the left ... :rotfl:)

Thanks for the info... sounds larger than what I was expecting (I was thinking typical small hotel room closet, this sounds more like a "regular" closet in a 2nd or 3rd bedroom)

I have asked the same thing, but haven't heard anybody who knows. I would like to know before I get there so I know how much juice to order from Garden Grocer - if there are juices, then my kids can just buy a mug.

We'll be there the same time you'll be!! (May 2-13th)

Exactly!!! I usually order stuff from netgrocer, and I'm trying to not have to. My boys do not drink soda at all. Actually neither do we, just coffee/ tea.

I cannot confirm the Mara selection (and I don't have pictures), but, I can tell you that as a person who doesn't really like Coke products that I consider the mugs a waste of money. My experience is that I've never found juice in the drink stations at any WDW resort. Some of them have lemonades, but, often with aspartame which I'm sensitive to and which isn't good for children. Some of the drink stations have powerade which is what I drink if I happen to be on a package that included the mug. Most of them have hot chocolate and if you are a tea/coffee person they have those. But, people say it's bad coffee and during my last 2 trips there was no milk/cream for tea to be found--when I asked they directed me to the "coffee creamer" dispenser. Sorry, but, not in tea!

ETA: The mug is a good value for my DW, though. She uses it for Diet Coke, Coke Zero and Sprite Zero (again...different in different places).

There might be pictures of the Mara selections you are looking for in here. I know there are pictures of Mara and some of their selections.

We're just back from an AMAZING time at AKL - It was our first stay there...honestly...I don't think I'll stay anywhere else again. We were in room 4319. There wasn't a single morning that I didn't enjoy my coffee on the balcony with a giraffe or zebra. Everything was wonderful...the service, Boma, Mara the pool...I loved it ALL!
