Just had a late wait-list come through- going to be spending 2 nights (July 23-25) at AKL Jambo in a studio savannah view. Short stay, but it would have been tough to be at Disney and not spend time at our favorite resort. Can't wait!

Right now we have a tentative 11 possible people - my immediate family and we have extended an offer to include my DSIL and DBIL for 5 days and my DHs cousin and her three children for 5 days. Everyone has some thinking to do because even though we are covering the rooms they have to cover the airline tickets, park tickets and food.

My DHs cousin has one child that is high end autistic and this way she's got people to help her with him yet still have her whole family together in WDW. She needs some time to work to see if he can handle the trip.

Thanks! Our biggest concern is the transportation. I think we have just gotten spoiled over the last 5 years. However, the kids are older and at least I'm not driving in rush hour traffic!!!!

We will also be new to ordering groceries. I know about Garden Grocers, but is that everyone's preference or there a better option? I really don't want to rent a car.
I love that I don't have to rent a car when we come here. I personally have used garden grocer several times. They seem to have a good selection . Prices could be better but you are paying for convenience. They have never messed up my order and was there when they said they would be.
Good luck with the planning.

This will be my first trip to the World with the kids by myself. I am thinking it will be a little more hectic/stressful but kids will enjoy it.
I know there are both sit upright chairs with umbrellas and lay out chairs. My deck overlooked this pool.

Heading to AKL CL in a few days. Does anybody out there know if the AKL has published the list of resort events for the month? If so, do you happen to have the list to share?
