And I can dance for myself, because my airfare is booked for my November trip! I don't know about you guys, but I never feel like the trip is "real" until the airfare is booked. Still haven't convinced the girls to switch to AKL - but I will be there for a visit - and eating my beloved ZD's...

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!
Agree - lots of new faces here - Welcome Everyone!!! And yeah, lets keep it our little Jambo secret...........

AKL is FAAAAAAARRRRRRRR from everything - whew, the bus ride alone is HOURS and it SMELLS........... Oh, and did you hear about the animals in the pool............... yeah, you should ALL stay somewhere else for sure!!!!

Thanks for all the advice! I called and requested Zebra trail near the elevator, all that's left to do is wait three weeks and change!

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!

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 wanted to add something here. When we arrived in April there were no Cast Members anywhere with Mickey hands! It had been a while since I had done ME so I had to look for signs. They need to go down to the Baggage Claim area and look for signs for Disney's Magical Express. It is found on Terminal Side "B", so when they come all the way down the escalator they will turn right and walk a ways, past the car rental desks.

Hope that helps. I also hope there are Mickey-handed CMs there that day!!

Newby here :)

Hi! Just wanted to introduce myself...Just found this thread. We (the fam and i) will be leaving for our first WDW trip on Thursday (veerrryy early in the morning) I'm so excited i can hardly wait. Dh and I have been planning this trip since our oldest dd was about 4 years old but life always seemed to get in the way of actually going....well 3 kids and 10 years later we are finally making the trip. We will be spending 5nights in one of the kidani 2br villas Savannah view.

oh and i'm sure this has been asked and answered many times...but what exactly is a zebra dome? Looks like white chocolate...if it is do they make them with milk chocolate? (not a fan of the white)

I never stayed at either AK resort but we will be spending Nov. 13-20 at AKV in a 1 BR. I'm a DVC member (newbie) and booked a little late so all the Savannah views were taken. I'm waitlisted but doubt a Savannah view will open up. How are the standard views?

As an aside, I dropped my mom off at the lobby of Jambo to get us some Zebra Domes. She was gone for at least 20 minutes. When she got back in the car she told me "That resort is beautiful. On my way to finding these things, I passed a couple of pools and about four bars." Four bars? LOL, now I know why the AKL is so popular! But seriously, how many bars are at Jambo House?
