Like I said, it totally depends on local laws. Miami is probably quite a bit more relaxed.

Hello, wow I wish I had only 3 more days till our stay at AKL . It would be great if you had some pics of the gift store in AKL, I know this might sound strange but i'm getting gift baskets made for my family on our arrival & i'd really like to include some AKL resort Merchandise. Thanks

Yes- I have a request.
I second the request for the gift shops at AKL and Kidani.
I'm especially looking for Animal Kingdom themed beach towels.
Thanks!!

Yes, I have a request. Would you please find out if they have diet tonic with quinine in the store? I need to drink 8 ounces a day for cramps and am diabetic so need diet. It seems that only the better brands have genuine quinine in them. We will be on CL and are going on the Fantasy for a seven-day following our stay in AKL. We will need to purchase it for the three day CL stay plus the 7-day cruise. Sure would appreciate any suggestions.
Many thanks
Jennie

Good afternoon everyone! I am staying at Animal Kingdom for 3 days in the second week of July and I simply could not afford the Savanna view. I picked pool view as my hubby and I are just staying on resort for those 3 days. Please help me figure out whether I should switch to standard view or stay pool view. I want to be near the lobby/restaurants...it just seems the the pool view block of rooms that the Disney gal suggested (2451 to 2486) from the map I have...seem to be pretty far away...I am so confused. I also saw that the pool view rooms are on the zebra trail? Help all you AKL experts.... I have no clue what to request.... suggestions? Do the rooms all have balconies? Does the floor really matter? Thankyou all in advance for your help and suggestions....I have tried to read all of this forum, but there's so much information, my head is spinning! Thanks!

Pool view rooms are definitely so much better than standard view rooms. The pool and restaurants are located on the Zebra Trail side of the lodge. All rooms have balconies. The lobby is on the third floor. You should request a room close to the lobby so you won't have far to walk.

Thank you! So would Zebra trail rooms..3407 to 3422 be a good group of rooms to ask for? Or even 4th floor..? Are there balconies? Thank you!

All AKL rooms have balconies. I don't have a map handy so I can't answer the room number question, but asking for a room close to the lobby would be better than requesting certain room numbers. Third or 4th floors are both great, but I really liked being on the third floor. You can just walk to the lobby--no elevator to wait for.
