DW and I have a "pre-anniversary" date night scheduled for the 22nd of September...with PI gone, we're going to TRY to go find some nightlife on WDW property that night. I'm thinking we're gonna head over to the Boardwalk (if it's not cruddy weather out) after dinner.....it's the only place I can think of to just "hang out".

Any other suggestions? Maybe House of Blues....??
We'll be there until the 21st or 22nd. Perhaps we'll meet up at the pool bar.

Can I jump on over, too? We check in to the AKL this Friday morning to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Thanks to all who have created such an informative and friendly thread. You've really been a great help!

...and happy anniversary, Elin!

If I'm remembering right, I think there is a total of 6 in the package - but I think at least 2 of them are the mousse things and not domes............ let me see if I can round up a photo for you.

Thanks...I am sure we would love to see those photos

Forgive if someone already replied to this -- still making my way through the thread.

If memory serves, last trip (Sept '09), it was three.

Room Suggestions for 4th Floor Club Level

Hi I posted in the other thread and some kind person told me to post over here. So thank you for the information! We are staying CL which I came to find out is 4th floor. I don't care about distance to anything, I just want a GREAT view of the animals. Can I please have some recommendations for room requests for a great animal view (ie. anyplace to avoid near large trees or other unappealing views?) Thank you!
