Hooray! This summer (July 30-August 10) we'll be at WDW for the 3rd time. This will be our first stay at AKL. We booked pool view and requested a king bed. Anyone can give me how big the chance is to get that? And maybe have pictures of a king bed room? Thanks!

We'll be there 8/2-8/9 in a pool view room as well! And we requested a king bed room too! :-)

We will be checking in on Monday with a pool view and king bed request. I will let you know what if we get our request.

I'm still trying to decide if we want to splurge and go on the night vision safari.
I would probably take the boys. Trying to figure out when we can fit it in.

Also- I've searched but must have missed it- are the coffee makers the keurig kind or the Mr. coffee kind?

I love this thread- it's getting me even more excited!!
Let me know your dates and I can add you to the list if you like

Next to decide on MNSSHP & to keep trying for a BOG ADR

One question--it used to be that we could request specific rooms/locations in a building/first floor/etc. Do I do that at online check in? Is it even an option? Even in a standard room we would be using the balcony and would prefer to be away from the smoking areas due to allergies/asthma...

Just booked a Savannah view bunk bed room at Jambo House for August 31-Sept 2, after our Disney Cruise! Really wanted one of the Kidani 1-bedrooms, which is what we had last time visited, but I just couldn't justify it for such a short stay. Still very excited- have fond memories of waking up with my now 3-yr-old when she was 6 months at 3 am, and watching the ostrich outside our room while I cuddled her back to sleep!

I would love to be added to the September list. We'll be at the AKL 9/9-14/13 in a PV room. The trip has gone through several changes. It started out as a June trip at the AKL and has come back to the AKL. I am so excited about finally getting to stay at the AKL.
