They are wonderful!

It's like a little cake, but the top is not frosting...it's a firmer top than frosting, but still soft. The inside is mousse, chocolate with a hint of coffee and alcohol. (but not overpowering at all)

Not everyone loves them, but those that do are a tad obsessed.

Beautiful pics Kim!! I can re-post some I took in December if ya'll are interested.

Love the pic of Kidani, my last visit to AKL Kidani was not built yet so I am quite excited about heading over there this trip to have a look see around it. And I know the first thing i will be trying this trip is the zebra domes , not sure if they were not around my last visit in 2005 or if I just missed them but you guys just keep posting the pics and tempting me with those mouth watering treats and now I read about pineapple upside down cheese cake too

Great pictures of Kidani....although for some reason I'm still more attached to Jambo. Maybe that because I can get my Mickey Waffles there?

Once we stayed at Kidani we were totally hooked! I don't care if we ever stay anywhere else. Thanks for the picture of our "home away from home".

IMHO AKL is not nearly as remote as some people claim. But shh!!! let it be our little secret.

Here you can see an overview of WDW: http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/propertymap.htm

AKL is #30 in the lower left corner next to the Animal Kingdom Park.

The little cluster of three resorts right down the road, still lower left of the map is where the All Star's are. Next closest is Coronado Springs.

AK is really almost as close to Epcot and the Studios as the MK resorts, it is closer to the Water Parks. The only park that is really a bit longer to get to is MK, and it is maybe 5-10 minutes more than any of the other non-MK resorts by car.
