Glad to hear you are happy in your room. I cannot see your pic Can you re-post it?
Did you resolve the ground floor room right at check-in? Glad it wasn't a problem to be put on 3d floor

So excited! 59 days!
Sounds like a very fun trip!

Looks really nice! It's like you're at the pool 24/7. Enjoy your stay!

Staying at AKL for the first time in August.

Just wondering if there is somewhere you can change into your swimming suits near the pool or do you just change in your room and go down to the pool area.

are lifejackets available for small kids?

What type of coffee machines are in the room?

Hi,

Hoping for some help on the Arusha Firepit Storytelling.

We're off at end of the month and have a couple of nights stay here. We intend to go for something to eat at the resort and look around the resort (we're staying in a DVC at Kidani).

Noticed this little activity does feature, I guess it will be more in the summer season (weather permitting).

I've found a quite outdated start time of 7.15pm, is that about correct?

Also our little one is 7, how kid friendly is the actual story, is it for bigger kids?

And how long does it last?


TIA


FD

Thanks so much for the coffee explanation. Maybe I won't bring my coffee kit after all
Have fun today

Yes, there are bathrooms with showers right by the baby pool (between Mara food court and the arcade). I believe I have seen life jackets. Just ask a lifeguard if you don't see any!

Scroll down this thread to see what the Cuisinart coffeemakers look like. http://www.disunplugged.com/2012/05/...t-club-resort/ They use little pods, which are provided. And as DisneyDmbNut has just reported, the coffee has been upgraded to Joffrey's brand

You should definitely check out the storytime. We haven't done it in years but I think it's great for a first-time visitor. It will be family-friendly
Seems like it's held around 6:30pm and lasts for about 20 minutes. It's a fun little activity - in a beautiful setting! (you can see part of the pit and some rocking chairs next to the people in my photo)

(I can let you know the exact time in 5 days when I get there )
