Great time!
....looking forward to your pix......ummmm, the 'G-Rated' ones... [ ]

Yes, Santa makes appearances and yes, there is a photopass photographer there to capture the magic!

We usually saw Santa in the early evening -- maybe 5-8pm. You should get an Activities Schedule at check-in, which may list that information.

You can also check the Activities Board every morning. There's one in the lobby by Bell Services and also down on Level 1, by the Boma restrooms.

Thanks! Tied a Zebra Dome when we went to check out the resort, my wife loved the thing. Myself, not so much. Again, the resort is amazing, we spent close to an hour just wandering around the lobby looking at things. We were debating buying between here and SSR. Looking back at pictures here and at other sites, we decided here. Pictures really cannot do the place justice. That picture of the Christmas tree in the lobby looks stunning. Hopefully within 5 or 6 years a early December trip will be in the books.

Talking

Me and DD16 are going to be staying here for the first time in March! We fell in love with it when we went to Boma four years ago, but the price just always seemed so daunting. Well I used Disney's current stay,play and dine to take the sting out of it and opted for a standard room The night I booked I told her " hey just booked a Disney vacation for March" She was on her cell phone and gave me a great big smile ( we have been four times and I talked enough about booking this year so she was expecting it lol) Then I added " oh btw we will be staying at AKL" I feel bad for whoever was on the other end of that phone since she let out the biggest shriek and shouted "Seriously!!!" lol exactly the reaction I was hoping for That reaction alone definitely made the extra it costs booking AKL worth it, that and it's been my dream hotel to stay at ever since our first visit
