I'm an animal lover, but have never been to the AKL. Thank you to everyone for these wonderful photos. I can't wait to see the resort for myself some day.

thank you all for the wonderful pictures. We just became members of DVC and AKL is our home resort. Can't wait for April so that I can book next years vacation. The resort looks amazing, was just telling DH how i could stay there and not even go to the park.

Pembe Savannah

I didn't manage to get pictures of the room before it was sorta trashed, but we stayed in a dedicated 2br standard view at Kidani Village. Although we were in a standard view room, we had a partial view of the Pembe Savannah. Here are a few of the pics from our balcony.

Partial Pembe view, the end with all of the fences.

That's what we have booked for August - I would love that view! Did you request anything specific to get that, or just pixie dust?

Thanks everyone for the pics. We'll find out next month (6/16) if we can rent points to stay in a 2-bedroom at Kidani.

We are also considering a villa stay for our next trip. I love all of these pictures. Is the pull-out bed in the living room a queen size? Does the chair fold out to a twin? we will have 5 people and hope a 1 BR will be big enough.
