We have had a few trips to AKL and AKV with multiple rooms and requests which we were given. Some of these trips were during Spring Break so AKL and AKV should have been fully booked. One trip, we requested the room the farthest from the lobby as possible. For some odd reason, we were NOT the last room before the suites. You would think that our request would be easy to honor but I suppose other people want to be as far from the lobby as we did. We only did this once though since it was a 1/4 mile from the room to the bus stop which was fine with me. Not so much with the family.

On at least three AKV/AKL trips, we had multiple rooms with both Savannah view and cheaper rooms. The rooms were not always next to each other but they were within a 4-5 rooms away at most.

Our latest room request has been a compromise that puts us about half way from the lobby on the pool side of AKV. Easier to get to the pool yet farther away from the lobby to reduce noise from people in the hall.

We do miss Mara for CS, but after the last few trips we have been so ticked off at food prices and quality we just found it easier, faster, and cheaper to just nuke frozen food in the microwave.

Can't wait to get back to AKV but I don't think it will happen until 2015. Next trip will be back to VBR in 2014.

70's to 1997 too many trips to count.

Disney is a lens that focuses on people.
Sometimes it exposes the worst.
Most of the time it highlights the best.
