It's never too late, they really appreciate positive feedback. I just used the 'contact us' link on the Disney website when I sent them an email.

....well, first you have to upload your pix on a host site, like shutterfly or photobucket (my personal fave). Then you can copy and paste all your pix on the DIS....

Does anyone know where the club level studios are in Jambo? Do they have a view? Looking at that or 1br in Jambo since they are so close in points but having a hard time figuring out if these have a view (and if I care since kids are so little)

Beautiful pics! My one night at a cheap hotel before our stay has now turned into an addiction to do two full resort days at AKL and wanting a CL Studio or a 1Br....so much for cheap. Oh well, now I've gotta find someone to rent me the points for one night .... and have the AKL have one available..... all unlikely. But a girl can dream!! Not going until September so who knows!!

Hey I think I know the answer to this but wanted to ask just in case. We were at POR a couple of years ago and are staying at AKL in October. I know the distance is greater from AKL to most parks/locations but am I right in thinking that since the transportation is dedicated it may actually be a wash overall in terms of total transit time? Seems like it would be pretty close, maybe within 5 minutes or so at worst. Of course I'm factoring in extra time I remember sitting around waiting for a pick up. Both at the resort and especially at the parks. Sometimes it felt like we waited on a POR bus for 30-60 minutes at the park.

Also, how is DTD only 2.2 miles from AKL?

We've spent 18 days total at Jambo House and have never had good luck with the busses. BUT others have!
I hate to be negative about it, but our bus waits just weren't good - almost always 15-30 minutes waiting to board busses that were already half full from Kidani. It wouldn't stop me from going again & using the busses again, I just have expectations to wait and plan for it. If we get lucky and a bus comes quickly then we are happy. If we wait 20 minutes, we expected that... If we wait an hour!!!! I'm complaining... but that only happened once.

After I get on the bus I'm happy, so I have no clue how long the actual drive time takes. Sorry.

EDIT to add : We've stayed at POFQ twice, and the busses were better there, for us anyway.
