I wish I would have met you or gotten to know you, you seem like the type that would of checked up on my dd for me.

Looking forward to your report.
Yes, I'm a very nice person.... Every time I see your name I think of that old Chrysler commercial with Ricardo Montalban. Volare. And I sing the song but change it to Oh Mari.

I just wish there were an easier way to get to I-95. I think there is a road to be built from over hear in Clay County, that go from I-10 to I-95 somewhere down by St A, but I'm sure it will be years!!!!

In case any of you are wondering, BSIL is my SIL who is a B. Pretty self explanatory, huh? She and her family were in Disney for the week and we were oh so lucky to spend time with them!

I can't wait to read about your latest upgrade.
Loved loved loved AKL! And I've got the pics to prove it!

Girl, I want your mojo when we finally get to go back next year Disney did give us a night of the dining plan last time....so it could work again!!
It's a curse, what can I say? Honestly, I think we get these upgrades cause we are only staying 2 or 3 nights. Really. Or maybe it's my charming personality?

I'm especially interested in your TR because you stayed at AKL- I feel like NO ONE writes trip reports who stays there, and I'm staying there in July for 8 nights!!! Can't wait to hear more!

Hi there! Just found your report and it sounds like a great one! We have a few things in common. We live 2 1/2 hours south of WDW and are there often for weekends also we like to try a different resort as often as possible and our goal is to try each one at least once. My husband is not much of a Disney fan so it is often just my daughter (turning nine this month) and I which is always alot of fun! Anyway, looking forward to your report!

Jambo - or as we say in Florida, Welcome!

Nicole this is for you!!!!

So as I've said before, and I might be bragging, but if it's true, it's not really bragging, right? But I tend to be mighty lucky in the upgrade department. I like to think it's my charming personality and winning smile, but Jeff is convinced that it's because we only stay 2 or 3 nights most times, and they'd rather upgrade my cheap butt for a short time, and save the upgrade rooms for someone who actually wants to pay for them!

Apparently he's not impressed by my charming personality and winning smile.

I always, read ALWAYS, book standard view at any resort. We are usually just not in our room enough to pay for a view that we might enjoy for 10 minutes out of our entire stay.

So as we began our trip to Disney, we were joking about what kind of upgrade we might get this trip.

We dropped Bucky off at the kennel on our way out of town - otherwise we would have driven down Thursday night and used Jeff's Hilton points to stay the night before our trip began. Darn dog. I swear, his kennel visits are getting more and more expensive too! And I only request standard view for him too!

But I heard he got upgraded to poodle view this trip, so apparently he inherited my upgrade gene. But he gets his nose from Jeff's side.....

Anywho..... Jeff jokes that my car only knows how to exit I-95 at I-4 West. He might be right. I've never traveled I-95 south of I-4. Even my car knows what's what.

And this trip is 2 1/2 hrs anyway you slice it. With traffic, without traffic - 2 1/2 hrs door to door.

At about the 2 hr 15 minute mark, we saw it....



And the obligatory pic - I was actually snapping this left handed with my camera, and right handed with my cell phone to send to all my friends up north..... Meanwhile, Jeff was taking a picture of ME, and laughing at my double pic snapping...



A couple more minutes pass....



We're here!!!





As we pulled up to the door, I hopped out to run in and check in, while Ally and Jeff parked the car. I always check in alone. Jeff doesn't like to see the room charge, and I don't like to be hindered in my eyelash batting, cheesy small talk making with the CM that checks me in.

Besides, who would take the initial impression shots if we both checked in?





This resort is beautiful, inside and out. I don't consider it quite as impressive upon entry as Wilderness Lodge, but it is quite awesome!

Apparently there is a mold problem, as shown by this giant mushroom!



Some nifty African art around the lobby.







This is apparently a mime who was pretending to be behind glass, until he realized he couldn't get out. Poor guy...





These quilts behind the lovely CM who checked me in....



Why was the CM so lovely, you ask? Well, since you asked....

It was 10:45am, and she said, "our check in time is 3:00 but I have good news for you. Your room is ready now."
Kara: Great!
CM : And I have more good news for you.
Kara: I love good news, what is it?
CM: We have given you one of our best rooms.
Kara: Ah, that IS good news!

Thinking, silly CM, I knew you couldn't resist my charming personality and winning smile!

Now, I don't know about "best" room, but it was definitely a savannah view room, on the main level (sweet! no elevators!).

So off we went to grab out luggage from the car and check out our new digs.

We were down the Kudu Trail room 3251, also part of the sunset savannah. Which means the sun sets here. Duh!



We were not overlooking the huge savannah at the back of the lodge, but every morning we saw the coolest two legged creatures out first thing on poop patrol! Leave it to Disney to take the best of the African landscape and literally leave out the crappy parts!









My only complaint is that these rooms are really SMALL!!! I don't know the actual square footage, but it was very cramped. If I had been here for a longer stay, and had a small child or pack n play in the room, I don't think I would have been as enthralled. But it worked out fine for us.

Our view. No zoom.





Zoomed in on the welcome wagon. No seriously, don't get up. We'll be fine.



We saw a lot more animals, some were actually MOVING! I'll post more pics of the animals, and more of the resort later.

Next up.... 20th Anniversary of Hollywood Studios!

Yay thanks for posting!! We're leaving in a bit and I have my attitude and small talk down pat!! I've only stayed a standard room once before at AKL and was upgraded! We had a premiere room too! We were ground level, the first room off the lobby next to the public overlook! The AKV construction was going on so that could be it, but Im hoping for something good at WL and AKL this trip!! I just want to act really excited and if i get an upgrade great if not, who cares? You're right, we never pay for a view because we don't use it (although the animals was really really cool)
