AKL First timers!

Hello! We will be staying at AKL for the first time July 21-26. We have a deluxe studio, savannah view at Jambo house. My kids, 6 and 2, are huge animal lovers and are very excited.

Any tips for a first timer? Any must dos for kids? Any advice would be appreciated.

....after checking in, be sure to check out the events board - it'll have daily activities - especially for the kids!

Hi all! Just found this thread and am pretty excited! We will be staying at Kidani Deluxe Studio Savannah View September 21-28 for my daughter's 8th birthday - surprise trip And our first stay as DVC owners. I'm looking at the points chart and am wondering if it's worth the 27 additional points to upgrade to CL? And also - if they end up offering free dining how do we add that to our trip? Thank for any/all help!!

i was going to skip sunrise safari because i am soooo not a morning person, but after reading on here and other threads about how great it is, i signed up. the only day available during my trip was on my 40th birthday. no one in my family can believe i'm going to get up at 6 a.m. on my birthday - i work afternoons and evenings and usually go to bed around 3 a.m. and get up at 11 or so, even on vacation, so it took some convincing. the boards are very persuasive!

oh, and i just found the list on the first page with everyone's dates, so i can give you mine, if you'll add a newbie:

DH and I will be at AKL Jambo House 4/14-4/21/13. We're staying CL.

We've stayed at AKL savannah view twice before, but not for a very long time - last time was before ground was even broken on Kidani. We've never stayed CL anywhere before. This trip is for my 40th birthday, so we decided to splurge a little.

Thanks for all the info on this thread (and the previous AKL threads). Lots of good late-night reading here.

I have added you to the list, congrats on your first trip!

I would suggest that you look at the activities sheet when you get there, there are many many activities listed on there for your kids.

If you can pull it off point wise, I would say go for it! It is amazing, but it will spoil you!

I have also added you to the list
