This is all great information

Thanks for the extra info. I can't wait until we go. I just booked 8 nights CL for June 09. We have stayed at AKL SV twice (paid once for view, got free upgrade the 2nd time) but we have never stayed CL anywhere. I am so in love with AKL! DH and I both turn 40 right before the trip, so this is our late BD present/celebration for each other. Of course we have to bring the DS along too or he would never forgive us
My DH turns 40 on 15th June and we are just waiting on the 11 month window to (hopefully) book a concierge room at AKV. I think staying concierge sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate a special birthday. Maybe we'll see you there. My DH will be the one looking embarrassed about wearing a birthday badge

Not exactly 24/7 but whenever the lounge is open: 6:30am till 10pm. If it's not in the refrigerator case, you just ask one of the cm's walking around. They will gladly bring you what kind and how many!

We just left AKV concierge today (sadly) and absolutely loved it. The African beer was so good! Beer, wine and appetizer type foods are avaliable from 5-7pm. If you want alcohol any other time, just ask and they are happy to get it for you. We also took a few bottles of beer back to the fridge in our room and it was great to have a cold one waiting for us when we got back from a hot day in the parks.

Reading this thread is getting me all excited about our November trip. It'll be our first time staying on site, and our third time at WDW.

I do have a few questions, though. Some of them may have been answered already, but I'm not about to go through 51 pages of responses.

First off - We're renting DVC points to stay in a villa, and there will be three people in the room, including me. We're getting a studio value. Have I heard correctly that there's a queen bed and a pull-out couch per room? If so, could someone provide a picture of the couch all pulled out? And, out of curiosity, we have a blow-up air matress about the size of a normal twin bed. Would that fit in the room?

Secondly, will any of the animals be on the savannah, or are they going to be elsewhere due to the construction? There isn't going to be a whole lot of noise, right?

I feel strange asking these - I'm usually the one answering other people's questions about WDW. But as I said, it's the first time we've actually been able to stay on site (and no one else in my family seems to get how EXCITING this is!!), so I'm pretty confused about the whole thing.

We had a Construction Savannah View ( ) June 10-20th and we were surprised to find animals on the Savannah! They really didn't seem bothered by the construction at all. In fact, the CM's who work with the animals, told us that the ostriches really love the construction and flirt with the workers. We saw one ostrich who watched the cranes working on the main lodge for hours.

Construction on the new DVC resort started at 8am and lasted until 4:00/4:30pm. We got a flyer in the room that stated the construction would be from 9am - 4pm M-F, however, it certainly started earlier and they also worked on the weekends. The noise from the DVC construction was minimal.

There was also renovation happening on the main lodge. This work was much more disruptive to us as there were cranes and loud trucks directly below our balcony. They were painting the top decorative panel of the roof line, so the crane was directly in front of our balcony during work ours and several times we had workmen standing on our balcony. When we were home, we kept our drapes closed during the day. Hopefully this work will be completed soon!

Have a great trip!
