View Full Version : Entrance to AK from Kidani?

My DH seems to remember a CM telling us that there will be an entrance to AK Park from the new Kidani section of AKL.

Anybody else hear about this or know for sure?

Not going to happen.

I think you'd need to take a bus.

That would be nice - but no.

The new VGC addition to the Grand Californian does/will have exclusive access in to California Adventure - but not at AKV & Animal Kingdom.

Nope, you would have to run the gauntlet through the animals to get there! Lions and Tigers and Bears..Oh My!!! :rotfl:

Only if you can run very, very fast across the savanna.

Thanks so much. What a great perk that would be.

I figured that if it were true the sales staff would have been shouting it from the rooftops.

Funny comments here because just this morning I was informing DH that AKV did not have running trails (we're runners) and he said "fine, I'll just run through the savanna and get a GREAT time since I'll be getting chased"

I'm pretty sure we won't be staying there very long if he tries it.:rotfl2:

Maybe the CM mentioned that Kidani would have its own bus stop to the parks and your husband misunderstood. There will be a savanna between Kidani and AK, so no way to have its own entrance, even though it would be great if they had a path along the outside of the savanna to do just that.

Someone mentioned wishing for a themed "trolley" or something similar that would transport you directly to AK from AKV, which would be really cool I think. Maybe over time DVC or Disney at least will hear our cries for things that aren't considered yet, especially as people stay at Kidani more and make repeated requests.
