March 15-17: Chubby Checker & The Wildcats

March 22-24: The Guess Who

March 29-31: Nelson

April 5-7: The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie

April 12-14: Paul Revere & the Raiders

April 19-21: The Village People (new!)

April 26-28: The Orchestra, Featuring Former Members of ELO and ELO II

I've seen all of the above, except The Orchestra (ELO - loved them way back when! ) and Tommy Roe (I was never really into "bubble gum" rock! ) Ironically, those are the 2 acts that will be performing while I'm there!

Sorry to hear you have the flu, but the school closing should help with the needed rest, stay warm and god speed on a speedy recovery!
We are staying at our loved AKL for 12 days !!
Yesterday it was 179 days ... so we tried to make the ADR we are most interested into , Spirit of aloha , but ................. discovered we still have to wait ... a few days. Basically , it looks like online you cannot book ADRs for the lenghth of your stay !!

As we live in Italy it would be too much expensive to make a LONG international call and talk with a CM for 12 reservations !
So ... we wait !!

Ciao , laura

According to DD Kristin, who is the most knowledgeable Monkees fan under the age of 50 that I know...

Micky Dolenz will also be performing March 8 – 10, 2013. He took over last year to replace Davy.

She lives right outside Boston, MA. I imagine her BF took this photo from their porch. He is a professional photographer and the lighting and panorama view would be something he set up. Kathrin is more of a point and click kind of girl.

Good morning, Js & Ks!

I really want to book that singe night at AKL for our November trip. But I am hoping there could be a discount out there one of these days. If memory serves me correctly, CL rooms are not usually included in general public discounts, right? I think if there was a discount for a savanna room I would book it instead of CL simply because of the savings. $500+ for one night is just a little rich for my blood these days!!

Have you ever tried doing a search and saving it on your Disney profile without booking? Someone told me that increases your chance of getting a pin code. Not sure if it really works, but I guess it couldn't hurt.

I think you can do ADRs for 180+10 days, so of you are going for 12 days, you would have to wait for those last two ADRs. You should be able to do 10 days though, as I just did that this week.

Hi,

My family is going to stay at our home resort AKV this August for the first time! So excited! We booked a savanna view, and will be there to celebrate my youngest DD's birthday. Looking forward to learning all about this great resort
