Can anyone tell me if the Kidani studio rooms have a dvd player in them? I like to bring some Disney dvds along but DHs portable dvd player is broken.

Thanks for the helpful information. It would be nice if it is still open! One less thing to do at rope drop in the AM. But now I know where to go looking once we arrive. Thank you.

I could check in (yesterday) but was confused by the "Room and Amenity Requests". I could have sworn this is where I was supposed to request the full sized crib, but there was no option to enter text. We are staying Standard CL (so Arusha View, Jambo, 4th floor). Here are the ONLY options I had to choose from, most of which aren't even applicable:

Quote:
Room Requests - You may select up to 2 room requests.
_ Highest Floor (wouldn't apply)
_ Near Lobby
_ Near Elevator
_ Sunset Savanna View (wouldn't apply)
_ Kudu Trail View
_ Lower Floor (wouldn't apply)
_ Near Transportation
Room Ready Request:
_ I would like my room ready for early arrival and to prioritize that over other requests.
I didn't even SEE an area for Amenity Requests. I did contact the IPO regarding the crib but was a confused and a little frustrated with the online check-in process.

ETA: I think that the front desk now has two sections - one for regular check in and one for online check in. Someone who has visited more recently please feel free to correct me!

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to add my name to the list of stays for 2014!

We will be at AKV Kidani March 28 - April 5 2014. We are waiting for our 11 month DVC window for booking. The countdown is 3 weeks and several days.

This will be our third trip to Kidani! We love it!

....I didn't see ANY of that....mebbe because I was checking into ASMu? Well, other than the obvious ones that would only apply to AKL, that is...

I also found a recent review for The Wanyama Safari or The Sunset Safari at AKL. This is the Safari that is open to all guests.

Here is the link:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3085906


Sorry I had the incorrect one in there! My Bad!! I promise this is the corrected link above!


Just thought I would share. I have been looking for an update review and this one popped up.

Our upcoming trip to AKV in 2014 is to celebrate DS graduation from high school. We are going to take him on this safari.


Thanks Everyone!

In the future when staying CL, don't bother doing online check-in. When you arrive, DO NOT go to the front desk!! Go to Bell Services or Valet and they will have someone escort you upstairs to the 6th floor lounge. That's where you check-in!

I never do online check-in, and hadn't planned to for this trip either but Don in the IPO suggested it and then reiterated it in a second email, so I did it.


ETA: Kimmar - maybe you can only do online check-in for one resort at a time under an account? It doesn't make much sense but, then again, a lot about the new My Disney Experience doesn't make sense!

....I don't get why I didn't even get any 'Request Options' either....the only bad thing about on-line check-in that I can see is that I am already assigned a room and I can't renegotiate a new/better one until I've been to the one assigned to me....
