Thanks to you for all of the great work in creating this thread. I look forward to reading through the whole thread this weekend.

My hubby is finishing up a year long deployment in Afghanistan (his 4th) and we are taking this family vacation when he comes home. I am keeping the AKL upgrade a surprise from him and he'll find out the day we arrive (we're driving).

I'm so excited!!!
I hope you have a wonderful trip. Wow, fourteen weeks early! Your daughter is a miracle. I hope her health is good. Thank your husband and you and your family for his/your service.

But I thought I would share what Bob surprised me with:

YEAH Bob

Hi all, posted on the other thread, not really sure if I should do it there or here or if it doesn't matter?

Anyway, we (DH, DD and me) made our first trip to WDW in Oct. (first trip ever for DD and first time for DH and I in 17 years). We stayed at CSR and loved it but I've looked at the pics and the info on here and I just love the look. So for our next trip, between xmas and new year of this year we are thinking of AKL. Very excited to learn more about the resort. One question, we will not have a car so we will be using the buses. At CSR we didn't mind them at all, they came often, never too crowded and the ride was fairly quick. I know they will be much more crowded this time around just given the time of year but for anyone who uses them do you find them come often? Is the ride much longer than it would be from CSR?

OK to post on either -- we just never know when AKL Lite 6 will be locked though, so this thread has a slight advantage!

Opinions will differ, but I have stayed at AKL/AKV numerous times and have never had an issue with the buses. The park buses stop first at Kidani, then Jambo and there may be times when there just isn't enough room on a bus - but that is usually only for park opening. (DTD bus goes to Jambo first, then Kidani.)

There is a CM at the Jambo bus stop monitoring the flow during peak times and they will request a bus from Dispatch when they see overcrowding.

Good morning, Jamborinis and Kidanites!

More domes on here this morning, tiggrbaby. You are the best!

Kim... dress code is duly noted. Is there some lead time so we can order those shirts from zazzle??

Thanks so much!! We've never stayed at a moderate resort but that will have to be left for another trip, lol. We have stayed at the Poly before (which WAS another ressy change as I had booked the WL that time but changed it last minute...ugh) and we didn't love it there.

Congratulation on your upcoming AKL vacation. I am sure you will be amazed at all the work and details that have gone into the lodge. What a wonderful surprise for your DH!

Thank you both for your service to this great country! You both have made many sacrifices and it is very much appreciated. Be sure to have reservations note that your DH will just be returning from deployment in afghanistan. Perhaps there will be a little during your stay.

We will all be here, so drop in anytime and ask questions, tell us about your plans and just enjoy hanging out here with us.

Kim, Love the new shirt and how you designed it so quickly. I am going to start my order as soon as I finish posting this.

Since you found time to design and make the super cool ZD shirt I am sure you have the first edition of your Cruise to nowhere trip report done! Right?







Inquiring minds would Love to know!

Thank you very much!! I look forward to learning more about the resort from everyone. From the pictures I have seen so far it is stunning! I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep the change a secret, lol. I *might* tell him after he comes home next month so he can enjoy "planning" some of our time there too.

Thank you!! Yes, she is doing very well considering the rough start she had. She was 2 pounds 1 ounce and stayed in the NICU for 95 days. Even then she stayed on oxygen at home for many months but is doing great now other than developmental delays which are very normal for micro preemies.
