My DD is 3 and LOVES to be the center of attention (and parades)....do you think that she is too young for that or do they just march around the lobby where you can see them? I'd love for her to participate if she can - or AVOID the lobby at that time if she can't!

That happens to us whenever we do split stays, I guess the computer system can't decipher the difference between checking into your first hotel and the next one. One year it was a pain because when we were checking in at DME the CM told me that we didn't have a reservation for the ride back to the airport. I spent a lot of time on the phone getting that cleared up and when we got home I realized that the reservation was included in our second packet. I now carry both just to be safe.

Kim,

If you don't have the correct ME tags don't use them!!! Just keep out your stickers they give you at the airport when you check your bags. Give them to the ME CM when you check in for your Motor Coach and they will get your bags from baggage claim.

In January we only had 4 tags but 5 bags. I gave them the claim ticket & my 5th bag arrived at AKL with the other 4.

Your DD is not too young for the Parade. They march around the lobby, following the CM, chanting and using wooden instruments. It's lots of fun for the kids and so much fun for the adults to watch! Make sure you have your camera/video ready!!




Kim - your ASMU package (the one you need) will arrive Saturday! It will be waiting for you when you return home!!

We normally stay at a value or mod and have always wanted to stay at AKL, well I get my dream in August and now have lost my mind over all the things I want to do to make sure we have a great trip! We did not get to go to Disney last year and now I feel like I have so much to catch up on!

I was supposed to be taxiing down the runway on my way to AKV in 12 hours, but I decided to cancel last night. I procrastinated getting many things that needed to be done around the house and came down with a nasty cold this past week. Oddly, the thought of being in Disney was too stressful knowing so much could be done at home. It was a last minute trip anyways, my Southwest airfare can be used within a year, and I can still try to rent my DVC points. I was looking forward to the warmer weather and enjoying the savanna view, but my house and garden will appreciate a good spring cleaning!
