Is a concierge room (not on the lounge level) worth it? We have a 2 year old and were wanting a concierge room on the lounge level for its ease. Or is the sunrise safari and extra snacks worth the extra cost? What are your thoughts?

Thanks!!

PS - Thanks for the bead answer!

IMHO, it's worth it. Heck, IMHO, just the access to booking the sunrise safari makes it worth it. We have little ones, too, and the time to and from the room hasn't really ever been an issue. We've NEVER gotten rooms, when staying concierge, on the actual lounge level. We were always on 5.

As someone else mentioned, even BEFORE the rooms moved to the 4th floor, MOST of them were on 5, not 6 (the lounge level). It's not really much different than before, except you're riding the elevator up 2 floors, instead of 1.

I have booked club level for the first time next May. One reason being to book the Sunrise Safari. The main reason is this: This past May I was at the CR with one grandson and my daughter and the rest of the family was at WL Club. There were many times when they would "run to the lounge" for a quick snack and we would have to run down to the busy food court. I kept thinking next time it will be club level. And it is!! I can't wait.

What are the chances of getting to do the sunrise safari and not being on the club level?

Zero.

You can book the Wanyama (Sunset) Safari if you're an AKL guest (non-CL level) for $210/pp, but the Sunrise Safari is open to CL guests only.

Yup, the two have apparently been merged by the mods.

Odd, really.

But, then again, I thought shutting down the original Jambo thread was odd, too. So what do I know. I'm sure the mods are working with a much more global view of what's going on than I am.....

Yes both threads have been combined. The original was getting long and we received complaints about many long FAQ threads. It will always be in the sticky at the top of resorts if you need to refer to it.

I'm going to ask that all discussion of this resort be kept to a minimum. I would like to keep this thread for going haywire and let it focus on questions people ahve about the resort and posting new information. If there is a website with AKL photographs, perhaps we could all store our pictures there and I will provide a link in the thread. Or you could provide a link in your post and I will add it the the original thread under a Photo's heading.
Thank you!

Then maybe the mods could suggest a place to continue the "Jambo" type of discussion we previously engaged in. Since they've merged the two threads (the FAQ thread and the Jambo jr thread), it seems to me the MODS want to contain both "things" in this one place....

I certainly think the resorts board is the appropriate place to discuss the resorts.

may I ask then what is the proper protocol?

I think thus far all of us have been answering questions posted to the best of our abilities.
What is considered minimum...and what is considered going haywire?

The mods have mentioned that if this starts to become a chat thread it will be moved to the community board. This thread should be about resort planning at AKL.

You are also free to start a thread to chat about the resort on the community board.

Then might we just get the "old" Jambo thread moved over to the community board and reopened? Since that was it's general "bent" anyway? Talking about the resort?

I mean, I have to say...I think the resorts board is more appropriate for that type of discussion, because ultimately it becomes a great planning tool which provides the ability for people to ask other "real people" questions about the resort and get a variety of opinions and perspectives. But I do agree the mods have final say in what should go where.

Ultimately, though, why reinvent the wheel? The Jambo thread was one of the most widely posted to threads in the resorts forum.....could it just be moved over so the posters who "dwelled" there can continue to use it? And maybe the "official" (or unofficial...whichever it is) FAQ could contain a link to it?

Just my humble suggestion and 2 cents.

I don't have a problem with reopening the old thread if the OP on that thread agrees to it.

The problem with chatting in a resort thread is the people that come looking for resort information and have to wade through posts just chatting. There may be a gem of information in the post but that is a lot of posts to look through.

good idea...many faithful followers to that thread.

I do think the separate FAQ thread is great, for newbies who want quick info.
