I'm scheming to find a way in 2014. Ours will be April if I can work it.

Add me to the list & delete me if plans change?

3/29 - 4/6/2014 AKL, Jambo House.

Does there tend to be many options for you at 7 months? My husband wants to buy in at Aulani which I am fine with, but I do wonder if we will be able to stay at AKL when we head that way instead...



Its true... my husband wouldn't even talk about other resorts this trip and we have only been once! I should have seen the others first, now I may never get to!

I usually travel at slower times of the year so I haven't had much trouble at the 7 month window. My last DVC trip was my crazy trip of splits stays in October for F&W. I did BWV 4 nights, AKV 2 nights, VWL 2 nights and OKW 4 nights .... all studios and all at the 7 month window. I feel I was really lucky to get BWV at that time of the year but I figure I could have gotten more nights at the other resorts if I'd wanted to.

I'm planning my next trip for Oct/Nov for 10 to 12 nights but think I'll only do a 2 resort split ... maybe a lodge split if I can manage it.

Yes, I do think we will love it. We have stayed at Poly, BC and WL, so far WL has been our favorite. I have a feeling we may have a new favorite after this trip!

Our first night here and loving it! We had no dinner plans and managed to get a Boma res using the MDE app.

Our room is standard savanna (uzima). We have all that except microwave. I was surprised to see a pack n play right in the closet. I thought that was a request item. If the 6 year old kicks the 12 year old in her sleep, I can throw her in it, lol. I certainly hope private bathrooms are included in each room! It's been many years since I've shared a hotel bath! Lol.

Ok, zebra dome question. My oldest (13, not actually mine, we borrowed her from a friend) had a ZD. Then I went up and saw the "made with alcohol" notice. I assume they are ok for minors? If they had significant alcohol they would have to be "distributed" cautiously, right? I imagine (from logic and taste) that it has less alcohol than cough syrup. Regardless, I grew up in a German family where brandy filled chocolate was a normal thing, lol. My friend has similar thoughts. But, still, curious? She didn't even like more than one bite, anyway.

I took a picture of the ingredient list. I guess there is a small amount of alcohol, but I imagine it is cooked off or they wouldn't sell them to children. There were no restrictions on who could buy them.

to Disboards and to the thread!

Congrats on your booking. A 2-bedroom in Kidani is awesome.......... so much room!

I think you may have received some misinformation from the CM though. Kidani only has 2 "views" - Standard and Savannah and the amount of points per night differs, depending on which one you choose. Your friend would be able to tell you whether he/she booked a Standard or Savannah view. If it's a Standard View, the likelihood of getting upgraded at check-in is very remote since it is a DVC (points) reservation. If it's a Savannah View, you won't know which Savannah till check-in: Sunset or Pembe.

I just don't want you to get your hopes up and then be disappointed. Even a Standard View will be awesome!

Hey Linda! Long time no see around here! I hope your trips to AK work out. We're going Sept/Oct next year for F&W, Finally making up that one trip we had to cancel.
