I'm starting to stress because to get the time off I have my regular call sat/sun and 12 hr call mon/tues. so basically today was my last day to (secretly) pack and it was take your parent to school day!!! I think I may just dump everything into a box and call FedEx tomorrow to pick it up.

Sort of worried. We have been several times in Jan, but never over MLK weekend plus I just heard about the cheerleaders!!! Oh well, at least if the parks are crazy we have a GREAT resort to hang at

So very true... You picked an amazing resort to hand out in..

So, we're not "hang out at the resort" people. We are usually there just to sleep. The only "extra" think we've ever done is make a trip back to the resort to do the night vision animal viewing before heading back to MK for EMHs.

Is there anything WONDERFUL we are missing?

This may be our last trip for some time, so I want to make sure we do it all.

I guess we are "hang out at the resort" people. I just love sitting in the room enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, a glass of wine at night and watching the animals from our room. I also plan on cooking us a couple nice dinners while we are there, but I know you're not a "cook the food kind of person"!

You know me well, Alison!

We just have a pool view, so watching the animals from our room won't work.

I do think we'll take more time to sit on the pubilc balconies and relax this trip. I physically can't go like I used to!

Our first trip was the only one that we were able to "go". After that the RA set in we've had to move slower. In fact we've spent half our remaning trips at AK for part of our trips just so that we can slow down and watch the animals. The other trips we chose resorts so that we could relax in other ways.

If you join in on my TR, you'll laugh because of the amount of time we spend in the room and the amount of cooking I am planning!

I haven't started it yet. (I'm still working on another TR but I can post a link here). I don't like the Andriod App that I have, it doesn't show signatures either, so I still use the Internet option on my phone.

CIAO , my dear friends !!

As you might recall , Marco and I will be visiting our beautiful AKL in August !!
We are now in full “ dreaming and planning mood” - when real life doesn’t get in
My DGH says that sometimes ago Disney announced a NIGHT SAFARIS available for all AKL guests ( not only to Club level guests , as it is for the Sunrise safaris) - to be held on AKL grounds at night.
See eg this link :

http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/tours.htm#night

But I cannot find anywhere news about this feature : is it actually offered ? Do you know more details ( how to book it , times etc ) ?

THANKYOU so much for this wonderful thread ( and people !! )

laura

I'm not sure if the night safari is available to all AKL guests or just club level, but it does exist. My dd (12) and I are doing it on Wednesday. It is for guests age 10+ You meet at saana at 0945pm. The cost is around $75 per person and a portion goes to the Conservation fund. We called IPO and they made the reservations. I would just call CRS directly and ask.

Enjoy!

Does anyone happen to have a current copy of the activity sheets for the resort? This will be our second stay at AKV but we were only there for 3 nights last trip and since we didn't know of the activites beforehand we missed everything due to being at the parks.

I would like to have a bit more resort time and would love to have an idea what is offered when so I can give us a bit more time away from the parks.

Also- I have heard there is a culinary tour for Boma and Jiko. Is that on the sheet, do you have to sign up or just show up?

Thanks for any info. I can't wait to get back to the Lodge

Can anyone give a review on that? I would be interested in it, but would really like to hear more about it.
