I didn't sleep at all last night, for some reason, I'm worried about this storm. Anyway, I hope anyone else in it's path stays safe. I just feel horrible today, stressed and a migraine and just waiting........... lol -- and my ex mother in law passed about 15 min. ago - she was a lovely person who was always good to me. Sad day!!
Hope everyone is staying safe and so sorry to hear about your ExMIL

Page 1 states that valet parking is only 10.00 is that correct? I thought is was 12.00 at the other resorts, is AKL cheaper?

one more question, when should you put in your request for a room on a specific trail - I know it isn't guaranteed but I have a pool view and would like to be on zebra trail instead of giraffe.

I am not going until December - so any Friday afternoon? Do I call reservations? I have never requested anything special before so this is new to me.

I just know that if you walk on the zebra trail to your room you get the viewing windows - so since I am not staying a savannah view room this is a little peek of the savannah each time we go to the room for my friends that have never stayed there before.

....usually the Friday BEFORE you arrive....and, yes, the viewing windows are on BOTH sides, so you can see the pool area AND the savannah!

If not, can we get a cot or bring an air mattress?? Is there enough room?

What if we end up with two queens instead of the bunkbeds... will we have room for a cot or air mattress so DD & DS don't have to share a bed?
Unless things have changed, he will fit, just (at least on the bottom).

I'm 6 ft 3, and I climbed in there a few years ago, just to see if I could fit. It was tight, but I could do it.

Not sure if I could manage on the top, where the footboard is a little more intrusive.

Now...I didn't have to sleep there, so I'm not sure exactly what would happen with the ladder and my feet. I could've ended up kicking the thing all night long.

But I fit, very slightly kitty corner (which is typical for any twin sized bed for me).

That was our LAST trip to AKL before DVC...about 5-ish years ago. Can't believe it's been that long!
