AKL Hidden Mickey Safari

And here's a copy of a blank Hidden Mickey Safari--we got this a couple of nights before we left from a really nice older CM who noticed we were looking at the details in the main room--He walked up to us, gave us this and a little booklet on the art of AKL--am guessing you can get them from the concierge desk too

AKL DVC 5th floor laundry

Here are a couple of pics of the laundry room that they have for DVC'ers to use who are staying in a Studio--it has 1 washing machine and 4 dryers - also not shown is a countertop, 2 chairs and a TV--wasn't bad - and I liked that it was on the DVC floor.

Thanks for all the pictures they must have taken out one of the washers, there used to be two of them.

Has anyone figured out if it can be booked in advance or do you have to book it upon arrival?

Hello all!
I am a bit bleary-eyed after reading through these posts, so please forgive me if I ask a question that has been answered (multiple times).
Originally, I had booked an AoA (Nemo) suite for Marathon weekend (09-Jan to 13-Jan). Then the discounted rates were announced, and I jumped on a Pool View AKL room (for $200 LESS than the AoA). However, I have been having some second thoughts after reading about NOISEY pool view rooms. I requested a king bed with daybed (although TA said that they no longer have this room configuration), 3/4 floor, zebra trail, as far from lobby/elevators as possible. Is this a good idea? We don't mind walking at all, and would prefer a longer walk for a quieter space. I would really appreciate any advice. DH is running the marathon, I am running the 5k (still suffering PF injury, so half marathon is out), and DS7 is running Mickey Mile and 400m. Thanks for all/any advice!

You still have a pool view room booked? I don't think any rooms around the pool will have the same level of noise from the pool as they all more or less surround the pool, so all are equally close to it. But then, I never had issues with the noise from the pool. I found that the glass door is very good at keeping the noise out when it is shut. I only recently heard from someone who was disturbed by the noise of the pool party in the afternoon.

Christmas Decorations?

Will the Christmas decorations at AKL still be up on New Year's Day? Or, do they take them down before then? We'll be flying in to Orlando on the 31st and wanted to check out resort decorations...we won't be checking into AKL until a little later in the week.

We were there on Jan 5, 2011 and all the decorations were still up in all the parks and we went to Boma for dinner on the 9th and the tree was still up at AKL--during that week, the 2nd full week, was when they took them down all over--so the first part of our trip was still holidays and then it was back to 'normal'.
So you should definitely be good to go with getting there on the 31st Enjoy!!
