I'm at an Atlanta Airport hotel - first flight to MCO in the morning!

In case you haven't seen this yet, I found it on FB about an hour ago and got right on the phone and booked it for DH & myself (I've already done this once and loved it!) for one day during our August trip!

This is what was posted:
"This Summer, get more roars for your buck with this special offer - chomp $50 off the price of your adventure when you book a Wild Africa Trek for 11:45am or later! Offer is good for treks on April 28, 2013 through October 26, 2013: http://di.sn/fCS "


The total for 2 was $296.08!!

No code needed - the CMs are aware of this offer and are already getting lots of calls!

How many stairs and elevators are in the Giraffe Trail and where are they located at. I have looked at a map but only see 1 elevator. Do they only have 1 elevator ? We were wondering if it would be a lot walking to get out to the pool ?

I think it depends on a lot of factors, the biggest for us was what room you had booked (or planned to book) in the first place. For us, we had already booked Arusha, and with the PIN code, moving to CL was under $30 more per night. At that point, we figured that breakfast without having to rush out anywhere made it worth it even if we used no other amenities. Everything else, for us, is just gravy. We did our own ADRs, and aren't doing the safaris so it really is mostly snacks, space, and some peace and quiet this trip!

We are DVC studio savannah view in kidani - we are also on the deluxe dining plan this time too so lots of TS breakfasts. I'm thinking it won't be beneficial to us from what it sounds like. Maybe if no dining plan it would be for the breakfasts like you're doing.

There is only one elevator on that trail. Do you know that that is where your room is? In addition, the main elevator bank is just at the end of the trail.

If your room is on Giraffe Trail, consider yourself lucky in terms of getting to the pool. Rooms on Kudu Trail are a LOT more of a hike.

I've only stayed on Giraffe Trail once and it took less than a minute to get to the pool.

Perfectly said. It was the same thing with us, maybe even less of a difference between club and regular Arusha view. I think they apply bigger discounts to the club level at times, making the difference so small. It's not worth it (to us) for $100 or more per night.

I think the DVC club rooms book up really quickly. From your ticker, it looks like you're only four months away, I don't know if you would have the availability to switch anyway. Club level isn't something you can just add to a regular booking. Enjoy your trip!

You're welcome.
There are stairs too, fyi. We used them from 1st floor to go up to bus level (3).

Every time we've stayed, we've had a hike SOMEWHERE. Usually it's to do laundry. Ha.

But, we usually weigh the good vs the bad.

(note: if you're bad with directions, good luck. I got myself lost a few times last year.. should I be admitting that?!)
