Thank you so much for the add! I am not going to let a less than stellar balcony view impact a wonderful vacation. Having visited and explored the Lodge last year before a dinner reservation at Boma, we were able to experience the public viewing areas and the exquisite beauty of the Lodge and grounds. DS and I are beyond excited for this trip!

You're welcome.

I wouldn't mind the view of the resort entrance and porte cochere - but being directly over the smoking area might be unappealing

The one time I booked a Std. view, I was bumped up to a Sunset Savanna view. It wasn't a very good location of the savanna but I wasn't about to complain

Hope you wind up in a room you are happy with.

Just booked our flights last night with our JetBlue points. The bad news: our original departure date cost too many points for us. The good news: we only had enough points to move out departure date to 1 day earlier!! Now we just need to decide where to stay the first night.

Hello again,

We're about 2 and a half months away and naturally some questions are coming up. So I came to the experts.

1. I saw the new menu changes for Sanaa and have read all the great reviews so I'm thinking we should try it. My question is, is it a good restaurant for kids? I have a 6 and 2 year old and don't want to feel out of place.

2. Night vision goggles. I read you can use them. Who can use them (adults? Kids?) and where can you get them?

3.Our trip is short, 5 days,and will be doing a day-ish at each park. Are there any absolute must dos on the resort that we should find the time to do?

On the night vision goggles, there is a CM who has the goggles. The CM let's each person take a turn to use the goggles. Children can use them also, but it would be very hard for a very young child to see anything.

The viewing area is beyond the smaller spa.

I thought all club level rooms had a Savanna view, but I read on All Ears there were also pool views. So would I have to request a Savanna view? I really don't want a pool view.

Quote from: dgbg100106 since quote isn't working tonight.

"Congrats on the cruise and AKL stay!"

Thanks. The cruise is the Thanksgiving cruise on the Fantasy. My 60th birthday is on Thanksgiving. We went on the Dream in April to bump us up to Gold CC for this cruise. Staying at AKL Kidani after for 2 nights (Nov. 30-Dec 2) so we won't be driving home over Thanksgiving weekend.Actually, it was just an excuse to stay at AKL and use our annual passes again.

All club level rooms have an Arusha Savanna view.

The DVC club level rooms have either a savanna or pool view.

Does anyone know if the AKL Pool view rooms are usually including in the free dining promotions? If FD is offered, I think we will do our first stay at AKL!
