Haley, I agree with you. I have never found AKL/V to be that far from the parks.

Well, called today and made my reservation for the Wanyama Safari for 11/30/10, so I thought I should wander on over here and join ya'll. We're arriving 11/29, staying in a 1br savanna view-Jambo and thought it would be nice to know more about the critters while we were there. I stayed @ AKL back in 2002, but it'll be my son's first stay. I've eaten @ Bomas, but never tried Jikos, so that'll be a treat as well.
Somehow making that call and talking to the perky cm makes it all so much more real.

Well, I've been lurking for a while, but can't resist the lure of a new thread installment, so I'm taking this opportunity to say Hi! And thanks for all the great info- y'all have helped me decide on a visit to AKL next trip 2011- split stay AKL and Poly. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions and learn a lot here as the date approaches.

Hoping to stay at AKL pool view in a bunk bed room.
What do you all think of the bunk bed rooms??
When your kids came in from being out at the parks did they not want to lie on the bed b/c they couldn't see the tv?? Should I stay with a standard two bed room??

Also - can someone tell me what a zebra dome taste like?

Thanks

My girls (teens at the time) LOVED the bunk bed room! We were in a pool view room, Zebra Trail on lobby level (3rd floor), in the first pod of rooms off the lobby. #3422. And while most of the pool view rooms in that pod had a Boma roof view, this room had a great view of Uzima! (I do know that #3416 is not a bunk bed room since we also had that room - and it has a full-on Boma roof view!!!)

The room did feel a bit roomier than the std 2-bed room since the beds take up less floor space.

I'm not even going to try to explain Zebra Domes!! I'll let someone else tackle that for you!! They're available at Boma and also in the Mara refrigerated case. The 2 taste very different; Boma's are at room temp, Mara's are chilled. I prefer them from Boma!!

That is what we are doing for our September trip. We love the Poly, but really fell in love with AKL when we visited last year for dinner.
