Add us in...seems we get to Epcot in just a few short minutes. That is, when DH doesn't miss the turn, which he's done on both our first Epcot days the last two trips! We'll see if he makes it a three-peat in October

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
Until we bought DVC - we always got the BB rooms - DS loved it - plus - sometimes, I'd get in the bottom bunk to sleep!!! and they CAN see the TV - so no worries there. I would say at least give it a shot and see how it works out for you.

What is it with people saying AKL is soooo far? You would think they are planning to walk not ride the bus!

We are going in August for our 20th anniversary, it will be our first stay at AKL! We bought into DVC last year and own at Kidani, but will be staying in Jambo house in a studio. Can anyone tell me if there are laundry facilities?

Yes there are laundry facilities. They are free. Just need to purchase laundry detergent and other products.

Thanks! One more question, if you all don't mind. I am calling tomorrow to add requests to our reservation, from what I understand my best bet is to ask for Zebra Trail near the elevator, does that sound right?

You are staying at Jambo, correct? If so, just request close to lobby. I think the DVC rooms are on the top floors.

So... I changed my mind about "needing" to be close to the bus stop.

We have a pool view room (2 queens). Where would be the best location to request?
