We are booked in Sept! So excited! Anyways we are arriving from Germany, flight gets in at 6pm. We figure if all goes well we aill be at AKL around 8pm (car rental). My mom wants to hit the pool right away to ring in the vacation.

I believe Mara is near the pool? Or some other QS?? Will we be able to eat pool side 9pmish??

Also what is the closet Grocery near AKl. Coming from airport. Or better yet, tips on airport to AKL and making a Target or Walmart stop.. Are these the super ones with full grocery???

Thanks!

I second the request for the gift shops at AKL and Kidani.
I'm especially looking for Animal Kingdom themed beach towels.
Thanks!!
I will keep an eye out for AKL logo beach towels

I agree. Never thought I'd hear reports of topless sunbathing (being permitted! ) on Disney property

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!
Stick w/ your pool view for sure. That's what I have booked this trip too
DisneyDmbNut is at AKL now in a pool view and requested(I think) Giraffe Trail, close to lobby and lobby level (3d floor).
Pool views are actually going to tend to be much more "convenient" locations than many of the savannah views, due to the location of the pool
(see map below. Zebra Trail and Giraffe Trail have pool view rooms.)



Good luck. You're going to love AKL

I would say "an unusual photo from the skybridge," but I guess that's more of a challenge than a request.

Enjoy your stay!!!

So...I had no idea of what if anything to request for AKL SV CL room....Hubby and I ....no parks this time around, but would be spending time at the pool for sure. I was told that it would be a savannah view, and King or 2 Queen beds....looking at the map, I'm a little confused as to where the AKL SVCL rooms are located. Help please...

AKL CL rooms will be on the 4th floor; usually in the first pod off the lobby on both Kudu and Zebra Trails. If you look at the map that johnsonet posted here yesterday, it should be rooms 4210-4225 (odd numbered rooms) and 4407-4422 (again, odd numbered rooms).

I have stayed CL many times and most often seem to get rooms # 4219 and 4225! I don't know which rooms or how many have King beds, but I can tell you that those 2 rooms are 2 queens!

You may be placed in the 2nd pod off the lobby, but most often it will be those first pods off the lobby.

The Itinerary Planning Office will be happy to list your room requests -- I prefer to work with them rather than DRC. AKL-IPO are the experts!
