So excited, not much longer now!

So I've been putting off online check-in until I finished my exams, and now that I'm finally done I'm trying to figure out what I want...

I'm not even sure what all the options are, so looking for suggestions! We have a regular Savannah room booked. We are more morning people, so somewhere with a nice view in the morning (plus we have two "late morning" days). But besides that I'm open... Close to transportation is nice, but not the be all and end all.

TIA!

Congrats! Those are the same dates that my family is going. We're in a 1BR at Kidani though, we rented points too. Maybe we'll see you and your little princesses there

Considering an AKL CL and CR split stay in August. What are the typical afternoon offerings in the CL lounge? Is regular beer (like Bud Light) and wine available in the afternoons/evenings?

How likely is it to request a queen with bunk bed room and get it?

AP rates came out today for Standard view. I kept my pool view. It would have saved me about $150 but I thought, if I am ticked off all week looking at the parking lot, I would be mad at my self.

So no dining or deals for me...

but! 52 more days!
