2 questions for the experts:

1) how much can we fit in the room fridge (standard pool view)? Can we get a half gallon of milk, a 2 liter bottle of soda, some bottles of water & and some fruit in there?

2) Is there an in-room hair dryer?

3) What kind of TV set up is there? Is there a DVD player attached?

Thanks in advance

1) You could easily fit all that in your room fridge. They are the standard size half/fridges that you see in most hotels.

2) Yes there is a hair dryer

3) Not sure about the DVD - I think NO, but I can't remember for sure.

If its a studio room (DVC) you should get a DVD unit.

We've never stayed DVC, but we have stayed in a pool view/ two queens room & I don't remember having a DVD player. But, if they have them in the DVC rooms you could probably get one from guest services if there isn't one in your room. :

AKV counter service question:

It depends where you are staying at: Jambo House has the Mara which is a CS that serves breakfast. Kidani Village has no CS restaurant. Not sure whether the shop sells breakfast food, but I don't think so. Your DVC reservation should state whether you are going to stay at Kidani or Jambo.

DVD players:

DVC rooms have them, normal Animal Kingdol Lodge hotel rooms don't.

Jambo house has the Mara, where you can get all kinds of food items through out the day and it is right by the pool.

Both resorts have a shop that sells breakfast items.

...you probably would be better off sticking with cans of soda, rather than a 2-liter bottle. Then, you could put invidiual cans into the fridge as needed, or use the ice bucket to keep cups of soda cold [as you drink it]...

Idk. But that'd be cool. I don't know where you'd ask, the hostess stand?
