Although, now that I think of it, can you get a room at AKL with DVC points? I know you can get the Villas but I don't know if they have bunk bed rooms. The villas won't work for us, well the ones that are available for our time period anyway, because all the rooms have one bed and a pull out sofa.

We're with you, OP, we'll be doing a couple/few days at WDW after the cruise, mostly just to see Magic Kingdom and some Epcot time for DH and I. We have been thinking about Contemporary, just for the ease of getting to and from MK, but the pricing . . .

I'm not sure if you've said when you're sailing, but there are often deals for the resorts. Room-only discounts are available, but it seems like they may be phasing out free dining deals in favor of discounted "stay, play and dine" vacation packages. For our September cruise/stay, some people have already reported receiving PINs, and historically sales would be released in early March
for our dates. Just a heads-up to check on the resorts board to look for discounts

As much as I love AKL if I'm spending a lot of time at any of the parks besides AK, I wouldn't stay here. Even for us older people it is a pain to get back to magic kingdom at night for late magic hours!

That's understandable because of it's location but I always rent a car. I haven't been happy with Disney's transportation system since the World expanded so much. Too many stops,too long to get from A to B, too much wasted vacation time.
