And to b honest with u , even swimming isnt really an issue for non guests. Its no where near like SAB where they check bracelets. They just assume everyone at either of the 2 pools here are guests.

Also they have kids games n stuff out by the pools. Jiko is a lil pricey but very nice. I'd recommend either Sana'a or Boma.Both are. Very good but very different. Bomas is probably 1 of the best buffets in all WDW , while Sana'a is just an experience that you won't get anywhere else. Enjoy. And beforewarned You may not want to leave this place. You may find yourself back here on your next trip..LoL.
I agree. Unless you plan to sit on the balcony A LOT, I wouldn't. You can see animals from other areas near the pool and off the lobby. I don't think its worth the extra money unless you are bed bound

We are a pretty active family--- but I do love my alone "coffee" time on the balcony before the kids wake up--- I have to decide if I'm up to a really expensive coffee with a view (this is the only time I'd be spending time in my room, from about 5-7am)

We are doing the sunrise safari in June. I saw so many raves about it. But you have to be club level to have the opportunity to book and its only on Thursdays and Sundays I believe.

So hence the reason no prison like feel with people constantly checking...

Anyone know If they allow non CL to pay for the sunrise safari if it isn't filled up? I had a CM told me it was possible and to ask when we checked in- just wondering if anyone has had success with this- thanks!
