I called back until I got the answer I wanted, of course.
Woohoo! Waiting to hear back from SMIL so we can book ours.

These dates are all JAN.

They also have announced that military can possibly get 40% off select hotels, I am going to call them here in a little bit change my dates and see if I can get the discount.
That is fantastic news about the discount. I hope it works out. Your plans sound great.

Planning on arriving the 21st now instead of the 22nd, because the airfare is awfully expensive
I am sorry about the car and hope that there will be some pixie dust.

Jen, I'm sorry about your car.

Hope this helps with park tickets.

This might be too random/specific to get an answer about, but has anyone here done both the Wild Africa Trek AND the Wanyama Safari? We did the WAT back in March of 2011 before the price went up and it was new, but I am considering doing the WS this time too. Do you think the two are too similar in nature to make it worth it? It looks like they do not offer a discount to passholders or anyone else for the WS and $170 pp is pretty steep (Im guessing it is pretax too!) even if the dinner at Jiko IS included. I think in order to get the husband on board I would have to give up on V&As this trip (we may still do Remy on the ship but I may have to give up that too) but I really do love animals and tours in general... I just don't want to get a feeling of dejavu, you know? Thanks! :D

We have done both. There are some similarities between the two.

The Wanyama Safari is an opportunity to spend time with members from the AKL's animal programs team. Learn about the natural history and management of the animal collection at the AKL.

After the safari, there is a family style dinner at Jiko. The menu begins with traditional African dips, breads and appetizers. The entrees include vegan, vegetarian and meat-based dishes, like oak roasted filet of beef and chermoula roasted chicken. The meal ends with choices from the sweet dessert platter. Wine is also served with each course.

Did you feel like there were so many similarities that it would be silly to pay $170 pp though..? Or was it different enough that you did not regret a thing? We can always book a dinner at Jiko so the animal part would be the draw..!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick question i'm hoping someone here can answer. We are going to disney for Christmas staying in a 2br villa. I wanted to bake some cookies one night and have figured I would mix up all the dry ingredients in zip lock bags and bring em with us and then order the wet ingredients from garden grocer. My question is, Does anyone know if they have cookie sheets in the villas?

tia,
Jodi
