It's a pretty huge jump in price - unless prices change dramatically, getting 2 connecting rooms, even club level, is cheaper than getting the suite. We'll probably take that second option, although I haven't decided for sure yet.
If it's JUST a matter of occupancy, you could also rent points from a DVC member and book a 1 BR DVC villa. They sleep up to 5 (2 in the Master, and 3 in the Living room...2 on a queen pull out, 1 on the single pull out). The downside is: No daily housekeeping and no access to the Concierge lounge. The upside is....it's MUCH cheaper!

Any other DISsers staying around labor day? Last year we met up with a few families at the BCV during this time! Will be FUN!

and a GREAT BIG thanks to Kimmar for re-starting this thread I remember you from the S&D thread! We almost stayed there for this trip prior to joining DVC.
...and I remember you too - personally, I'd recommend Giraffe Trail..having stayed in both, Giraffe Trail is a bit closer to the bus depot and has a direct elevator to the pool area...

Ya know, JUST so I could take a picture of it...I might order an extra with "Kim" on it.

Actually, from what I'm hearing, AKL might ONLY do the "zebra cakes", now. How long ago did you get your cake?? The zebra cake would work..but I'd much prefer one like the one you had (with the correct name! )
