No reason to be worried. Request "lobby level" (3rd floor) or "higher floor" and you should be fine!

I don't think that's the case at AKL. The reason I say that is there's no exit near those rooms that would be considered "accessible". In fact, the one exit near those rooms has stairs.

When the AP rates came out, I could have saved $100 by switching from Pool to Standard. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Even though we have always been upgraded, if I got a parking lot/bus view for a week, I would have been pissed at myself for switching. If it was a weekend trip, I don't really care what my view is since I am rarely in the room..but I plan on some quality resort time...

The view actually doesn't bother us...we're park command types anyways and it's a short trip this time. I just don't want people walking back and forth outside our patio/balcony to get to the buses!

I've never ever been upgraded at Disney. I doubt it will happen this time, either. But I'll send you some for your trip so you do!! 23 Days, wish my trip was that soon!

Kadani standard view

We are staying in a 2 bedroom lock off at Kidani. I didn't make any requests when I checked in online. Any idea where the standard view rooms are located? I don't care about the floor, but last time we were at the very far end of the resort but that was a savanna view.

Less than 2 weeks, can't wait.

I will post some pictures of the room soon.

Loving it here at AKL!
This is nice to read. Maybe I'll do online checkin for our upcoming trip. Last time I did (at the GF in Jan.), I did not get my requests at all
Have fun! I'd love to see your photos.
