Tell me about AKL CL

Hi
Looking at planning my trip for next year and tempted to try AKL CL. Never stayed CL before and wondering how CL at AKL is. I have 2 young picky eaters, but DH and I love Boma! Any recent reviews of AKL CL would be much appreciated. TIA

We love AKL CL and are returning there this fall. As far as food offerings, it is just snack foods, except for breakfast. They had a great selection for breakfast, cereal, oatmeal, pastries, yogurt, fruit, etc. In the afternoon they had a separate snack area for the kids that included gummi bears, cookies, goldfish crackers, ham and cheese tortilla snacks. What we like about it is having a place to relax, snack, and get a drink in between park time. There is a great selection of soft drinks, beer, and wine. Also, with CL you get a great Savanna-view room.

We stayed AKL CL last August and loved it. I would just like to add that in the evening with the appetizers there was a table set up for kids by the TV with Disney cartoons or movies on. The table had carrots with ranch, ham and cheese roll ups, ants on a log, and apples with caramel. I think your kids will find plenty to eat.
Check into the sunrise safari( only available to CL guest) as it was incredible and the price includes a phenomenal buffet breakfast. There are also so many activities at the resort. I wish we would have planned a resort only day. Here are some of them-roasting marshmallows by the savanna, animal talks by the keepers, arts and crafts, and you can get night goggles for evening viewing of the animals.
I hope this helps you make your decision. My only regret was we didn't stay longer.

Oh, please do! I just upgraded our late July trip from pool view AKL to Club Level and am beyond excited! I got an email today from the concierge there today. I'm hoping to do the Sunrise Safari...maybe wait list!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful this resort is and how great their CL is. I love that being in CL automatically gives you a savannah view. No hassle with getting a view or a balcony, everybody gets them! I enjoyed the touches of Africa brought into the food and the wine. Have a great trip!
