We just became DVC members and AKL is our home resort. We just booked our vacation for Sept. 4th. at Kidani. This will be our first time at AKL. We have only been to DW one other time and we stayed at POR. This thread is great. I love reading all the posts. I am really starting to get excited for this trip.

Hope someone might be able to help me. I saw a post that mentioned a pool view but, did not see an option for that when booking. We would like to be right next to the pool; and, if possible with the parking area below us. We have booked a two bedroom, non lock off, standard view.

Is this a possible option to request? If so, what part of the hotel would we ask for. I looked at the Kidani map and it seems like the standard views for part of the building do over look the pool and have the parking garage below the building right next to the pool. Are the 2 bedroom non lock offs with standard views anywhere near that part of the building which would accommodate such a request?

Thanks

Thanks for the info!

DS and I were booked for CR over July 4th week, but as Murphy's Law goes, work constraints have forced me to move our Summer WDW vacation to early In June...and due to rate differences at CR, I just booked us for our first time at AKL, June 6 - 15. We are both really excited especially after reading through these pages and looking at all the amazing photos on the resort community pages. This looks to be a wonderfully unique vacation unlike our stays at many other deluxe and moderate resorts. We plan to fully immerse ourselves in the cultural experience and have even signed up to take the Wild Africa Trek at AK. Cannot wait! 35 days!! Hakuna Matata!!!!

Also agree with the evening appetizers. Some were tasty, others were too spicy for our wuss tastes as well!
....all the baked goods at the Mara are phenominal!

Loved the mickey raspberry thing, zebra domes and strawberry tart (not pictured).
