Great report; great pics!

Glad I'll be there soon (or else I'd be very, very jealous!)

It was sooooo nice to get away together. It was tough to leave the kids back home, especially since we were going to WDW. However, as you'll see going ahead in the trip report, it wasn't about going to the parks. We only spent 1 day at the parks. Otherwise it was just us two hanging out together and reconnecting. It was great! I'll be honest, I forgot how much fun it could be hanging out together doing what we wanted to do. Absolutely love our kids with all my heart, but there also has to be time for us to be a couple.

Oh, I should mention that we told the kids exactly where we were going and that is was for mommy and daddy to have some time alone and reconnect. Surprisingly both kids thought it was a good idea also and supported it 100%.

Wonderful trip report...waiting for more!

I am going in under two weeks and staying at Kidani! My kids don't know that I rented points from a friend..they think we are staying at POFQ. This will be our first DVC experience.

Could you post a picture of your Boabab tree gift?

Yeah, when I get home I'll take a photo of it.

It's just totally different than other DVC properties and if you love it than that's all that matters. I'll have some really nice photos of it coming up. One recommendation I can give you is to make sure you keep the curtains closed!! You can see right into the rooms from wherever you are.

Finally we got to see our room:


It was just a studio savanna view but it's very nice. First thing that struck us was the nice tall bed (you don't want to fall out of it since it's about waist high):



I loved the mirror they have in the room:


And the view was fantastic. Nothing wrong with being on the second floor as it gets you closer to the animals. Note that in these photos there are no animals as they were in for feeding (between 9-11am). This is the view straight off our balcony:

And the view to the right:

And the view to the left back towards the lobby:


Another really really cool item in the rooms is the sheer (spelling??). I'll post a photo of it later, but it 's difficult to get a good photo of it. Anyways, the sheers have animal designs in them with tons of Disney Characters from The Lion King. It's just a really cool touch.

Eventhough we only spent one day at the parks, we really didn't spend much time in our room. We were always out doing stuff. The savanna view was only 10 points more than the parking lot view, so I think springing for it is a good idea. It just adds to the feel of being somewhere special to be able to walk out and watch the animals wandering around.

One thing I did notice about the room is it's very easy to hear people in the hallway. I don't know why since it seems like a good door, but at night we could hear people who were just having a normal conversation. To be courteous to others I suppose guests should be quiet at night while entering or exiting the building.

More to follow!!

Oh, I don't care what anyone else thinks about it! I mean, I originally bought AKV but immediately canceled because we knew DVC was right for us, but AKV definitely was not! I was just struck by the comment and it brought to mind a line from Empire Strikes Back, which is on almost constantly thanks to my son so I couldn't help but reply in that manner.
