It was chilly in late December last year (NYE week) except 2 days. But, in general it is warmer - especially during the earlier part of the month.

We've gone once in January and once in December and hit BOTH of the two coldest weeks in FL's history. Sigh.



Kim - 8 days!

I loooooooooooove AKL and I love this thread. AKL is the most spectacular,gorgeous and unique resort! It is a destination unto itself. It is so richly themed and detailed. Every time I walk into the lobby I swoon. We were so flabbergasted when we heard there was going to be a DVC there. We bought in immediately. We gave my mom 3 nights at AKL for a surprise Christmas gift. She had never seen it and had never been to WDW. She was in complete awe! We were all so geeked checking her in and going to her room. We are staying at AKV Jambo house this December and I cannot wait!!! We have to stay at Big Daddy's house (Jambo) as it is our 1st love. We'll try Kidani next year. December seems like a million years from now.

Just wanted to say thanks to all who answered my questions about ME. I know my parents will still be a bit nervous, but it sounds like they should not have a problem finding their way around.

I just wanted to jump in and say hello!

We became DVC members at the end of May at AKL. We love Jiko so we know we'll love AKL. Our next trip is in Sept/Oct of this year for Food & Wine but unfortunately, we could not get in to AKL. We are planning 2 trips to WDW next year and know we are definitely staying at AKL for at least one of them, most likely our December trip so we can see the beautiful holiday decorations.

Thanks to all who contribute to this thread. We can't wait to stay there!

Ya'll are making me want to really hurry my trip time along. And I really try not to hurry time. It seems to go by fast enough all by itself.

Not sure why the photo stamp says 1/1/2004, that is when I got the camera. Pictures are from 9/2009. More to come. Thanks Wendypooh and Kimmar.
...no problem, but what you COULD do is press"ENTER" twice after you paste each photo so that they are underneath each other, not next to each other...like I did above...the pix are GREAT, BTW ~

....you guys are well aware of my DH and his antics....well-l-l-l-l-l:

....okay, sooooooo, outta the blue, he says to me, "Wanna go to Kathy's [his sister] house on Saturday? We could leave early Saturday morning and get there late in the day." Originally, we planned on leaving early THURSDAY [next week] morning to spend some time at her home and then leaving EARLY Sautrday morning from N.C. to continue to WDW. So I asked him, "well, when would we be going to Florida?" He answers, "We could get there by MONDAY and leave WDW on Friday to get back home by Saturday." Okay, so lemme get this straight: he wants to drive 1,200 miles to spend LESS THAN 4 DAYS AT WDW???!!?!? Not to mention, my DS and his GF are FLYING there on Saturday to arrive in the afternoon. What about THEM? "Well, -- will be there and we could catch up with them later..." I said that this was not gonna work, so he replied that I could go by myself and take -- with me and that he doesn't really wanna go anyway...WTH???!?! Inevitably, he does this EVERY TIME we have a vaca planned...

Well, it sucks - but hopefully, he'll come around and your plans can stay the way there were! I hope so, I know it's been a long wait for you!!! Keeping my fingers crossed!!
