And as much as they've tried to confuse us with all these categories and sub-categories, I think we're finally figuring it all out!

When staying CL, I also don't bother with online check-in - although there was a post recently that IPO was encouraging a guest to do online check-in. My next CL stay isn't until late August so I won't have any first-hand information till then.
Thanks, we are not DVC. I probably won't request any special trail as either one is ok by me.

I will be watching for your comments after your stay.

We haven't gone to the Mara yet, so I can't completely confirm, but they did have bags of Joffreys for sale in the Zwadi gift shop, so that might be a good sign.

I can check what coffee is being served later at the Mara. I am happy to say butts service has been much better! ! I guess we just had bad luck our first day. We did a lot of activities around the resort yesterday...lots of fun!

Gotta love auto-correct!! They come up with the best stuff!!!!

Seriously though, glad to hear the bus service has improved. There seem to be days here and there when the whole system seems to be out of whack!

Hoping so! Excited, finally, about our refillable mugs. If not, hot chocolate all the way.:-)

Glad to hear!!! I haven't ever ate there, we have taken food back to the room, usually.

What activities did you do?

Value studios?

Does anyone know where I can find a map showing where the value studios are located? I just booked 1 night in July before our stay at Beach Club Villas. Thanks!

Glad to hear! I'm also curious about the coffee and breakfast food at Mara in general.
We are planning a resort day when we arrive. I'd love to hear about activities.

Brandy- could you update us? After much thought I decided to nix the arrival night at the Hyatt and we are going directly to AKL. Our new dates are 10/24-10/28, AKL Jambo, CL.
