Well, last night, we're sitting on the couch and out of the blue he says 'we are staying in a savannah room aren't we?" This man can guess a Christmas present without even touching the box. Now I have no surprise. Oh well, anyways thanks again for all of the information. We fly out Saturday morning & I can't wait.
Sorry the secret is out. Hope you have a fabulous trip! Happy Anniversary

I totally get the pool thing, unfortunately it is not only AKL that has all those pool games. The WL had them too and though I understand some people like them, they do get on my nerves after a while. They just go on too long

Please tell me the reasons that you guys love AKL so I can sell my hubby on it. TIA!
I totally understand. Having just stayed at the VWL I am now torn between both AKL & WL. I just love them both ♥!

Hi! Sorry if I missed this somewhere, but I was wondering where I can find a link to the Pool movie, and the activities schedule for the end of October/Early November? I thought at one point I found it, but I am not able to locate it now? Thanks!!

Howdy howdy howdy! I am guessing the answer is no, but figured I may as well ask anyway in case! Does anyone know anything more about the new Night Safari other than it happens, is only for guests of AKL and you use the night goggles? Thanks!

Just officially booked a Pool View stay at Jambo House for 1/24-1/31 on Wednesday with all the deals that came out. Saved a grip-load...ended up getting AKL with park hoppers and dining for $110 less than our original package we booked at CSR with same components at the rack rate. So excited to be calling AKL my home then!

I'm seriously so excited to being there. I know it sounds to the contrary to what I've mostly hear, but it definitely will be convenient for us....to get to our most anticipated ADRs for our Trip: Boma for both Dinner and Breakfast.

After booking this on a couple of previous trips and then chickening out and cancelling it, I am determined to keep our Sanaa ADR this time. Can anybody make any recommendation what we have to try?
