Thank you. At first I was a little bummed about having to change and losing SAB (we had BC booked). I'm over it now, and am so excited about finally staying at the AKL. I've been bugging the DH about it since it opened, and he is just now caving.

I'm just wondering how I should word my room requests and in what order it should be in. We have a PV room booked. The DH wants the shortest walk to and from the buses possible and I would rather not be on the first floor.

I would request Giraffe Trail - That is where the Pool View rooms are that are closest to the bus stop.

Thank you. I'll put that in my info for our trip.

My youngest DS wanted me to ask another question, and this one is about the pool. If you look at the Uzima pool on a map, on the right side of the pool there are what look like two pathways that go over water. The DS wanted to know if you are able to swim under those, to the water on the other side, or if the area of the pool you can swim in stops at one of the pathways.

The pool stops there (at both over the water walkways. ) You cannot swim under them.

Thank you. That is what I assumed, but I wanted to give him accurate information.

Let's hope there are at least 2 pool view king bed rooms :-) I think I would prefer a standard room with king bed over a pool view with 2 queens... That empty bed taking up space just bothers me

My DH and I will have 2 kids with us, but DD2 won't sleep in a pack n play, so if she does end up sleeping with us, the king is much more comfortable...and we're bringing a toddler size air mattress (size of a crib). DS6 will have the daybed. We would make do with 2 queens if necessary, but I'd rather upgrade to bunk beds at that point I think...

When we have been I this situation before and wanted to put our DD on am air mattress they have refused to book us in a king room because of the occupancy requirements. Are the king rooms at AKL listed as accommodating 3 because of the day bed?

What time should we book Boma dinner?

We are staying in AKL in November of this year. I want to make reservations at Boma (we have eaten there before and love it). Not sure what time to make the reservations. We want to use the resort and not do too much park time. I know they have different programs at AKL - like nighttime storytelling. Does anyone have a listing of different programs going on at the resort. I do not want to miss any programs if we are sitting in Boma.

Thanks,
Linda

Yes, they are and since she's under 3 I think it should be ok?
