Wow, this is an awesome thread at 106 pages since January!

We've stayed all over WDW but this will be our first time at AKL or AKV. Hoping the animals are restless and we get good viewing from our window!

Lunch and dinner only. We've enjoyed lunches there with the zebra right outside the window! Even if you don't get a table right by the window, you should still enjoy the view!

We're doing a one night stay-cation at AKL next month (April 11th-12th) and I had read that there's a kids water play area but I can't really find any clear pictures of it. What exactly is it? Is it like a water play ground for kids? We're planning on spending the entire day at the hotel so I'm looking into what the kids can do and I know they will love the zero entry pool (esp my disabled daughter) but I don't see them spending all day there.

Are the CL suites at the very end of the "horseshoe" at Jambo? Or are there some closer to the middle? The description on the Disney site says "a view of one of the Savannahs" but doesn't specify Arusha so I wasn't sure. I will cross it off the list if they are all at the very ends, as I don't see the little ones hoofing it many times per day. And if it's not Arusha that probably would cross it off for us too.

ETA: I'm primarily interested in the 1BRs but good to know on any/all! (not DVC)

We are staying there in a couple of weeks for a MOSTLY stay-cation as well. I really got the best view of the pools at both Jambo and Kidani by going to YouTube and searching for Animal Kingdom Pool.... there are a couple of people who posted wonderful views! You will really know what to expect from each which is great!

So this may sound silly but I found a DVC member to rent to me for our trip coming up shortly. We've had a run of bad luck/sadness in the family and I really wanted to take the kids away for a break. They're very little and finding this all very confusing (when not wheezing from their permanent colds...just another thing....).

I would really like to thank the DVC member for renting to me. Any suggestions from the DVC group out there? A simple thank you card? A note and some zebra domes? Anything else you can think of? Just so, so genuinely grateful for this trip and want to be sure she knows.

Thanks for any ideas!

My thought: If I had rented to a family, especially one that had had traumatic/sad events recently in their lives, I would love a little photo collage with some of their trip memories. To see some of the happy moments from the trip would mean a lot to me.

Honestly - when we rent out our points, you've paid an agreed upon price and we don't expect anything else from you. Something - whether it be photos or notes from the kids sharing some of their best memories - would be more meaningful than anything else I can think of!

Google "Samawati Springs" and hit images. You will see a ton of pics for the kidani pool area and spray ground. Then Google "Uzima pool" for a ton of jambo pool pics . Lots of good stuff!
