With a little one that will still be in the stroller, the monorail would be great and not having to deal with buses some of the time.

But seeing animals from our room would be great too! So if we go with AKL what is the difference between the Savanna and Arusha views? I also think that they would love staying in a room with the bunks!
TIA!!
We stayed at the Poly when DS was 4 and it was great for ease of transportation but we only did HS for a day via bus and no AK that trip. This trip I decided to go with AKL instead of CR (DS is now 6 and DD is 2) because I was hoping for a more relaxing trip. And heck, I could add another night staying in a pool view room at AKL vs a standard room at the Poly (or deluxe GW room at CR). :-)

Thanks. We did a big family trip in August and stayed at the Beach club. We spent a lot of time in Epcot and it was so nice to just walk back with tired, sweaty kids in the stroller. The same for HS, we walked in the morning and took the boat back.

It's about $300 less to stay in a savannah room at AKL vs a standard room at Poly...I guess November won't be as hot and we won't be out as late probably. We'll see!

My 6 YO asked what is closet to the Dino dig!

I hoping for some sort of discount too!

We were at BC last September. I wasn't as much of a fan of the sticky, hot, humid walk back from Epcot...besides, the kids love the buses for some reason! :-)

I'm back here after a short LOA (ok I flipped over to BWV for my most recent trip shhhh!)

How many DVC CL studios are available? Just curious if I will ever have a shot at renting points for one of these.

Those chocolate chip muffins were laced with crack or something. Or maybe it was just that they had about 15 chocolate chips in a muffin the size of a quarter and an inch high. . The oatmeal was excellent as well.

Also agree with the evening appetizers. Some were tasty, others were too spicy for our wuss tastes as well!

For DVC CL there are only five 2-bedroom lock-off villas, which are booked mostly as studios and 1-bedrooms (5 each). Renting points for Club Level can be successful, but it would most likely have to be from an AKV owner who could book the reservation at the 11-month window.
