I'll be anxiously awaiting your report too. We are booked AKV-CL 1BR in June. We were there in Oct 08 but I'm sure things have changed since then. I'll be sure to report back after our June trip.

I have pictures from my trip in October of the room and views in my trip report starting on page 11 if you are interested...

Thanks!!

Our 1BR in Oct 08 had a different layout, ours had the kitchen island. Wonder if that was unusual.

We had three different rooms in this trip, and two of the rooms....pictures later in the review.... had islands, the first room we were in was a handicapped room and I think that was the difference, there was more room to move around for a wheelchair.

We did not ask for a handicapped room but that is what we got.

Is it still correct that the IPOs use the same reservation system that is publicly available? For ADRs in the next two weeks, do they have any special pull? I am fairly sure that they do not, but want to be sure this is still accurate...

Yes, you're correct, the IPOs have no greater ability to secure an ADR than you do by going online or calling.

This past summer, the YC IPO emailed to tell me she could not get my preferred Le Cellier ADR and told me to keep trying myself by checking online.

One suggestion is to subscribe to the December Canceled ADR thread which is here:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1#post39196351

While you cannot post wanted ADRs, those who cancel will post and/or announce that they are going to cancel and you can coordinate with them via PM.

Good luck!

We just got back from a week-long stay in the GF's main building CL. We thoroughly enjoyed it, especially since more food choices are provided than, for example, at nearby Sugarloaf. The staff, to be sure, was friendly and competent.

Still, some guests just don't get it. One gentleman frequented the breakfast offerings in his barefeet, and a number of lazy/rude guests never brought their used glasses or plates back to the return area.

We had a Boardwalk Garden Suite in October and appreciated the shorter indoor stroll to the concierge area.

All the best.

I am having trouble e-mailing the IPO for AKL-Jambo House with my reservation number. I tried calling them this morning after 9:00 a.m. but had to leave a message on answering machine and have not heard anything back from them. The e-mail address at the beginning of this thread is not correct and does someone have a more definitive one? Thanks from someone who is staying Club Level for the first time

Here you go:

Animal.Kingdom.Lodge.Itinerary.Planning@disneyworl d.com

This is the email address listed in the most recent email I received from AKL's IPO. We are staying CL for the first time in May and we can't wait! Hope this helps

I have been trying to contact the IPO office for a week now (phone, e-mail and fax) and have heard nothing from them. Just sent another e-mail today. Is this normal?

As soon as you send an e-mail you should get an immediate auto-response saying they received your message. Are you getting that, but not getting any additional communication from them? Any chance the replies are going to your spam folder or something?

They have been quite prompt in responding to my e-mails. I just messaged them the other day about adding one more ADR to our itinerary and I had a reply with my confirmed ADR within an hour.

That is strange, with no reply. My first contact with Poly IPO was not so long ago, and I actually had an answer 20 minutes before the auto reply arrived.
My follow up questiones where all replied within 30 minutes from I sent them. So I am very impressed so far. Might be different people on the Poly IPO than for AKL, but would not think so...
