Try to "Copy" then paste it into Paint, then "Save As" the pic (crop out the excess).

Well, I got it.

I had to upload it to photobucket and link the URL.

I'm not sure what was going on but it's all good.

WELCOME HOME to all of our new AKV neighbors!

I love the new mascot image that was created, and have changed my avatar likewise! Thanks guys! I don't remember which one of you made it - but bravo - I like. Good job.

We are so looking forward to our first trip to AKV. Like I said back on page 1, we'll be there for a split stay this Oct - starting out at BWV for 3 nights, then over to AKV for 5 nights. I loved seeing little Kidani, and definitely shared the photos with the entire family. We can't wait to experience that savannah view.

It's great to see so much action on this thread in just a couple of days. Keep it going - it was fun to read through it all. I'll make a point of dropping in and saying hi as I make the DIS rounds each day.

This is a terrific thread and I can't wait to continue reading the posts!! Love the Kidani avatar. It was exciting seeing the picture of the Kidani Village sign, too! DH and I were there last month in a 1 bdrm. SV room and it was so incredible!!

Thanks for the avatar

I've adopted it as my own even though we're still in the waiting for ROFR stage. Hope no one minds!

Looks like AKV resales are about the same as Disney prices after discount (~$94 per point). Why did you decide to go with resale? Smaller contract? Just curious.

Good luck with ROFR


Question for all of you knowledgeable AKVers out there:
We are currently trying to figure out what way to go for our trip next year. I am still trying to understand the options and what would work best for us. It will be my family (me, DH, and our 2 DSs - 7 & 9) and my dad and step-mom. We were originally thinking of getting two studios but have started considering going with a 2 bedroom instead. I know I would want to definitely try to stay in Kidani and would prefer dedicated 2 bedroom. So that eliminates the value category as a possibility - right? I like the thought of only 25 pts per night but really want to stay in Kidani and would like to have savanna view. Any suggestions as what might work for us? We will be staying at AKV for 5 or 6 nights and then moving to a OKW or BWV studio (hopefully) for 5 or 6 nights. Any thoughts?

From a point economy standpoint, you pay about a 50% point premium for moving up to a 2-BR instead of two value studios (should you decide you're okay with Jambo House). If you compare standard studios to standard 2-BRs, you're still looking at about a 25% point premium.

My recommendation would be to go with two value studios in Jambo House, and to request Savanna View for both, which you've got a solid chance at getting - nearly all of the values are savannah or pool view (which is still a partial savanna view).

EDIT: lol, I can never decide whether to spell "savanna" or "savannah", and in this post I did both.

Thanks for the input. We thought it might be nice to have the 2 bedroom for just a few nights but we would certainly be fine with studios. I really want to stay in Kidani because I know my kids will absolutely LOVE the Uwanja Camp. Since we bought in under the current promo, we have 320 points to use in 2009 so we have some room to play

I'm with you - I can never decide to use the h or not

Great for you! I didn't get any dev points when I bought last year. I suppose having had 2007 points compensates though.

And I see you're using the signature AKV banner I created - EXCELLENT choice!

We received 160 developer points for use at SSR as well as all 160 2008 points and 160 2009 points. Too good of a deal to pass up

Thanks for the AKV banner as well - it is my fav
