I need some help from my fellow Jambo members...My parents will be taking ME from MCO to AKL. They will be flying in on American. Since they do not travel much, and we will not be able to pick them up, I need someone to explain ME from the airport to AKL to me as if I were a five year old. .

We've never taken it, so I don't know how to explain it to them. I need to really lay out the most basic simple directions, or they'll start the vacation crabby.

Thanks all!

Good morning everyone, and congrats (and thanks Kim!) on our new thread! I feel like I just joined this bunch recently and we're already on a new thread! Nice to see some old friends and lots of newbies as well!

I can definitely agree about the AKL not being as far as everyone thinks. I've stayed only at monorail resorts and I don't find getting to the AKL from MK any further than taking the monorail to Epcot from the Poly...but Shhh...I promise I won't discuss this anywhere else but here!

You've been watching Philadelphia.

Its simple. Have they received their luggage tags yet? If so, just have your parents attach them to the luggage they are checking in at the airport. Make sure they have a carryon with items they need as soon as they get to the hotel. They will not get their luggage for at least 3 hours.

When they get off the plane, they will take the monorail to the main terminal. I am not sure where the ME desk is located but there will be Disney Cast Members in the airport with the big Mickey hands. Make sure they have their reservation # on hand so they can check in. After check in, they will direct them to the correct line to get on and then just wait for their bus to arrive. That simple.

...I believe they will get vouchers with those tags, too....

....yes. It's right next to Simba's Club - there is also another one on the 3rd floor halfway down Kudu Trail...

...do you have a 'Savannah View' or a 'Pool View'??
