We stayed at AKL for the first time this past summer and LOVED it. I was very nervous about bussing and the timing of getting to/from resort and parks. I was pleasantly surprised. We had a wonderful experience over the course of our 10 day stay. Yes, it's a tad further to MK, but we didn't notice a huge time difference to the other parks (much closer to AK than other resorts--it's only 5 min. away). The extra time to MK wasn't that much in the grand scheme of things. The perk of staying at AKL is that you get to be at Disney and then the bonus of a mini African vacation at the same time. It was wonderful! I wouldn't hesitate to stay at AKL again (in fact, I would prefer to stay there) and this is coming from someone who has transportation as a high priority on my list (efficient bus scheduling/pick up, timing to get to parks, etc.).

Thanks everyone for the input. Mobility isn't an issue at all. I will take all your info into consideration. Just starting the process so I will have a lot of questions I'm sure.

For my DW and I, if we were going just us... we would do the YC or BC. You can walk into EPCOT at any time, and it it is easily our favorite. Their is a boat to HS.

This also puts you in walking/boating distance from 5 or 6 of best restaurants in WDW.
