AKV is not my home resort, so I have to wait until 7 months out. Do you think it will be a problem getting a 2 bedroom at that time? I've done it a few times at Beach Club, but never tried it at AKV yet.
okw isnt our home resort,we have to wait till 7 mon. window also. we have never had a problem getting a two bedroom at okw. good luck on your resi.!!!

Usually I wouldn't be worried, because we're open to staying anywhere. But this time, there will be 9 of us and the 2bedrooms at AKV sleep 9. The only other place that does is the Tree houses.

I just got off the phone with DVC Member Services. We can book at the Tree House Villas at 11 months out and switch the reservation to AKV at 7 months out. I wasn't sure if this was against the rules, but the operator said that a lot of people do it.

WOW, the AKV won't know what hit it. I think that makes 3 or 4 of us ending up there. Has anyone ever done the sunset safari? I can't find a lot of recent articles or reviews on it. It originally was only open to people staying in Concierge class but I'm not sure if any DVC members can book it now. It's not the cheapest thing in the world but from what I have read it is very cool and includes a dinner at Jiko, might be a good chance for the DisDads and Moms to have a "grown up" evening while the kids play in Simba's Club.

that still dont gaur. you will get akv but it will get you into the tree houses. make sure you call on the first day you can, the first two weeks of dec. are the fullest times for dvc resorts.

I've updated the roster.

Honestly, with the holidays going on and our March trip looming, I haven't given much though to December yet.

Good news - just got off the phone with DVC Member Services. Booked a Tree House Villa for the December vacation. So even if I can't get it switched to Animal Kingdom in May, we've got a pretty cool place to stay.

Our goal is to switch the reservations to Animal Kingdom as soon as that 7 month window opens on May 5. We've never stayed there before, and the little boy of the family that is going with us really loves animals. But now that you mention it, it would be fun to hit a few 5 iron shots at you.

A few years back we stayed at Old Key West. We were approaching our villa one afternoon when a golf ball sailed over the building and landed near us.

probley was!!! i lost a few balls all ready at lake b. golf course!!! i generaly can keep the ball in front of me,(some what) its distance and water i have problems with. that was one other thing i had to do to say i did it.(play golf on disney prop.) maybe when dd is grown and on her own. pending how things go here the next 5-8 years, maybe we will get another 150 points. that will give us 550 and we can take a 2 weeker in oct or dec and take another 8-10 day trip in the early spring. its great, i dont have to twist dw arm for that plan.she would be packed and in the van at a moments notice.

Fantastic! I've updated the roster. Maybe we'll run into each other around the watering hole!
