The African Stew was really yummy, maybe next time we go the bread bowl will be back because people keep asking for it

Ah the ship updates will be the best as we had such an amazing time on board and can't wait to go back again
He should have been with me in November 2010. I went out to take some pics at the lighthouse near the Beach Club around 1:30am. Standing on the pier, something BIG made a ruckus in the water underneath my feet. I think it was an alligator. Freaked me out being there by myself!

I remember reading something about a woman being found shrieking hysterically near the lighthouse. I believe it was around the same time you were there actually....

Yay an update!!!

That's great that you managed to pull off surprise no.1 even if it was by the skin of your teeth!

Even better that you got upgraded at AKL to club level - what great pixie dust! I loved the feeling of that resort when we visited it during our trip.

That's a shame that the African Stew is no longer served in the bread bowl but am glad you enjoyed it.

I love that first pic in your second update - it looks beautiful as do the rest of your AKL pics - I would love to stay here one day.

That jungle juice sure is amazing!!!

Great updates, Stefy!
I love the photo of Dave looking through the rods of the balcony - so cute!
The view of the Savannahs is just perfect isn't it? We have spent a lot of time out on these balconies, when we stayed there.

Cannot wait for you to get on the DREAM! I think I know how you feel about her, but I really want to see YOU on it!




DAVE, congratulations on your new job!!!!!!

Wonderful updates Stef!

Ugh, so jealous of your AKL room. On our next trip to WDW (whenever that is ), we're going to have to make a lot of decisions regarding which Deluxe to stay in. We'd REALLY love to stay at AKL because of the theming, but we wish it was closer to Epcot or MK...hmm..

I've heard great things about Boma Breakfast and Dinner. Going to have to check those out sometime.

Can't WAIT to hear your update on the Dream. We absolutely loved it!

AKL is a beautiful resort, the Imagineers did a stand up job

We loved our room, was really spacious and I loved being able to sit on the balcony and have the savannah as my backdrop

Thanks We are the same as you about location to MK and Epcot. I hate the bus transportation at Disney and being that AKL is purely bus it does put you off. But after having stayed here I am willing to overlook the bus situation and allow a little extra time than we normally would. I think Dave said that MK isn't that far, maybe a 20min ride, so not too bad.

Defo check out Boma, we have been for dinner and breakfast and enjoyed them both

Off to a great start! Love all the surprises and especially how excited Dave was for the animals. We're just learning our new DSL camera too and it's so much fun! AKL sounds like the perfect place to experiment!

Haha I am extremely average with that thing, I tend to keep it on auto most of the time and only mess around with settings every so often. I wish I could get as good as some of those guys in the photography board.

Lol I didn't see as many as I wanted too, but then we weren't there for very long in the morning. I did get a bit geeky and start ticking off all the species I saw on the sheet they give you at check in
