Hey AKL lovers! My dh made an awesome video of our stay at Jambo House in Oct '12. Check it out! I know you guys will love it and get really psyched for your stays! A lot of the footage is from our balcony, we were room 5215 I want to say? 2nd floor, amazing view of the animals. The time lapse stuff is done with a GoPro and the video is with his Canon Rebel T3i. Enjoy!

Zebra Domes are little pastries sold in the Mara (and possibly the gift shoppe I don't remember). They have white chocolate and amarula liquer in them. They are pretty tasty!

What I found on the website is if you do have a balloon you can check it with bell services to hold until you leave.

For straws, I don'b believe anywhere in the resort you will get one, but that said, they aren't going to go through your luggage & confiscate (sp?) the juice boxes if you bring them with you.

We've never had a problem with bugs in the room. Keep the slider door shut & you shoudl be fine.

I would like to say I am loving this thread, so very helpful and making me so thankful and excited to be going here in August... First timer for the Lodge here, we stay at the Wilderness or a Mod usually. Got a pin and now we are staying in a standard room... Question 2 kids coming,.. 16 and 17 year olds in our tribe, anything oftered they may enjoy? The boy is a gym rat/ Jock, the girl is more lover of books and animals and knowledge... Any thing offered your children liked that mine might... Thank you kindly..

Donna

I would have to go home and check my letter but for some reason I am quite sure it has an end date...and it happens to be the DAY WE GO HOME! Which is Feb 9th. I can confirm tonight, if you'd like.

I wish I could explain how bummed my kids are about this. I really had to sell them on AKL, since they liked the idea of the boat from French Quarter, where we were originally booked. I thought that my switch to AKL was going to be a grand surprise for them and they were like, "but we wanted French Quarter" . I stuck to my guns because I think they'll LOOOVE AKL, but it took a lot of showing off with videos and pictures of the pool slide to really rope them in. Now - no slide.

We're staying at AKV for 1 night in Feb! We even have a savannah room booked.

Now, my question is: How long a walk is it from AKV studios to AKL's QS? I simply must have a Mickey waffle for breakfast!

Same for us!!! I'm pretty upset about it, too. Also - both of the water rides we love are closed. Takes away some of the magic.
