I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Ahhhhh ... sounds lovely! I seriously cannot wait.

Also, one additional question, I want to try ZEBRA DOMES when I'm there. Are they only available at Boma? Can you get them anywhere else?

Yes they are at Boma, but I think only in the evening.

The Mara has them all the time in the refrigerated cases, but they taste better if you let come to room temp first.

)

Oh my, Boma's breakfast is out of this world delicious. They have this bread pudding French toast topped with caramel pecan sauce. I have two breakfasts booked for my upcoming trip. Lots of scrumptious pastries, the pancakes are fabulous. I have no idea about the waffles, if there's pancakes I don't look anywhere else. Tons of fruit, breakfast meats, omelette station.

We have two booked as well..! Mainly in case we decide to forgo breakfast when we arrive and go straight to the park so we have a backup day, but maybe if it IS that delicious...

First timers - Any suggestions

We are going to AKL for the first time in September. We will be there from 9/16 until 9/22. We have booked a savanna view with DDP. We are looking for any suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable.

Any room suggestions?
What is the current drink options for the refillable mug?
Rent a car or use Disney Transportation?

In addition, it my twins birthday and mine when we are on vacation. Any ideas to make this birthday a great one?

Please any suggestions are wanted and valued!

Thank you!

This sounds like a fabulous trip!

Corinna, I'm glad that you made it to an Olympic Event! Sounds like fun.

Laura, good luck on your trip, and I hope you're able to book some F&W events!

I'm not sure how many of you are into D23, but this weekend there is an event at the Disneyland Hotel on Animation. I'll be attending and started a TR yesterday if anyone want to check it out here is the link.

Sounds awesome! I will be in WDW same time as you but not at AKL at the same time!

I have 9 days til I get to AKL!!!!! 9!!!! So excited.

Another random...just wondering question...

Where is the fountain soda machine where you can refiill your refillable mugs at AKL??? I am a Diet Coke drinker instead of a coffee drinker and just wondering how for I (or DH) will have to travel to get to my beloved Diet Coke in the morning.

I wonder if I can make a request to be near it....

I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Thanks to EVERYONE for the input on breakfast and the zebra domes. I don't want to miss out on anything!! This is my first AKL stay (albeit only 2 nights) and I want to milk it for whatever I can. I'm so excited.

Thank you again ... I'm off to make a reservation for the Boma breakfast now ....

Any room suggestions? I assume when you say AKL - you mean you are at Jambo house? - Before we bought DVC - I always asked for 3rd floor, near the lobby - Zebra trail. Now that we are owners, we stay at Kidani always!

What is the current drink options for the refillable mug? Soda, Tea, Coffee, Cocoa, Water - the refill station at Jambo is inside Mara. * See link at bottom of post.

Rent a car or use Disney Transportation? We ALWAYS exclusively use disney transportation. It's SO much easier!! IF you are going offsite however, you will DEF. need your own car.

In addition, it my twins birthday and mine when we are on vacation. Any ideas to make this birthday a great one?

Please any suggestions are wanted and valued! Disney Florist has many options, you might want to check them out. You can also order cakes to be delivered to your room. PLEASE NOTE though, NO balloons are allowed at the resort.
Thank you!

The refill location at Jambo house is inside of Mara -- at Kidani there is one inside Johari treasures and at the pool.

Afternoon J's & K's - hope everyone is having a good week so far!!! DS is back to school and things are getting into the routine fairly easy, thank goodness!!! 5:45 isn't as bad as I had thought it would be!!

Corinna - how awesome you went to an olympic event, we were just talking about how we'd like to do that one day!!

Alison - congrats on getting your D23 stuff!!! exciting!!

Laura - hope your trip is going well!!!

Kim - great TR updates!!!

AND - it's official - our May trip to WDW is CANCELLED - but, we are replacing it with AULANI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOO HOOO
So, Brandi can change that for me on the list - I don't have exact dates yet - but, it will be in May after DS gets out of school. We have decided 2 weeks is the minimum - so, I'm gently, subtly and provocatively -- tee hee, pushing my luck and hoping to add to that!!- even if DH can't stay that long, DS and I could.

So, I'm VERY excited about it!!! YAY

Hope everyone has a good evening - off to cook dinner!!!
