Thanks, I now know Kadani has their own check-in desk. Can I also store my luggage before heading to the park? There was a comment on Deb's site that got me concerned....

Yes you can, they will hold until you call them and ask them to bring it up, or you can stop by on your way in and ask them for your luggage.

Sounds like the youngest needs to be bribed into a more enthusiastic response...! Can you answer for him? You *are* his mother after all and Moms know best!

Yellosnos, do you have any ADRs you need to make?
I read on the DVC board that many folks have availed themselves to the BB offers, so it does not seem that rented/owned DVC points excluded anyone from BB offers. I doubt that Disney would reject $$$$!

I just got back today from my stay at AKL with rented DVC Points and I was given a BB offer as well. 35% off certain dates on room only. I didn't use it but if they are handing them out I would assume you could use them.

Same here when we stayed in November - it was in the room but the dates were summer - Aug and we don't tend to go then so I didn't try. Now I wish I would have just so I can say what would happen!

Ok, if I need to book a bounce back for the good of the board I will...I am renting points as well.

We leave on Friday and I am so unprepared because of this darn weather. Blizzard here, nice there, then one day a high of 58??? C'mon , I need warmer weather than that!! I agree with whoever said they can't trust northeasterns about swimming. Cape cod is never warm enough water to swim!! I'll be the one doing laps in the hot tub feb 22-24

LOL. I know what you mean about the weather. The day we left Pennsylvania it was 20 degrees here. 75 or so in Orlando. It got up into the mid-80s while we were there, but got down to 65 the last full day. It felt cold to us. 'Course then we came home and wished it was that warm.

Sorry -- posted a separate thread about this, then realized I should have asked the AKL experts here.

Does anyone know if the Zebra Trail rooms that "stick out" from the trail (near Simba’s Clubhouse and the wading pool) are standard view or pool view rooms?

When we stayed at AKL a couple of years ago, we reserved a standard view room and were assigned room 1484. From our 1st floor “patio”, we could see the hot tub straight in front of us. Although not visible, the pool was to the right and we could see the Uzima viewing area to the left. We LOVED this location! It was very quiet and yet very close to the pool and Mara via a little-used door at the end of our short hallway. We are considering another stay at AKL and we would love to be in this area again, but I’m not sure what room category to book to even have a chance at it. Did we luck out and get a great standard room location or were we sort of upgraded to a really obstructed pool view?

Thanks!
