Yes, I agree with you on that one... It would be better having one at the resort...

ummmm, here's something of an odd question.

i ordered a gift card last wednesday (july 10) and after realizing it would never make to our house by the time we leave (sat), i called and had the delivery address changed to AKL so we'd have the gift card when we're there. the representative said it *should* arrive around 7/23 - 7/24.

However, it still hasn't even shipped. We check out on the 28th. If it hasn't arrived by then, is there any way I can get AKL to forward it to me at home so we can use it for a later trip?

I am SUCH an idiot for ordering this stupid thing so close to our dates, but I thought 9-10 days would be enough. And it's apparently not. I can't just write off the amount of the GC--it's a lot of money. Do you think AKL will help in case it gets there after we leave?

Thanks. ugh, just kicking myself for being so stupid to cut it so close.

Chest of Drawers?

Some of the pictures of the rooms at AKL I am seeing online (regular rooms, not DVC) show a dresser, or chest of drawers, in that empty space as you walk in the door. Do all of the rooms have this? Do ANY of the rooms have this now? We stayed at WL last December and that dresser was a nice addition!

We are staying at AKL right now- in a pool view room at Jambo house. My moms room is right next to ours- we have the dresser in that space and my mom doesn't even have that space, so no dresser- it's just a flat wall. It is really nice to have it because the drawers are huge!

I am not sure of the answer..can you call your credit card and have them reverse the charge? Tell them you have not received the goods?

I was in 3010 (Giraffe-pool view) room and I had the chest of drawers. They were nice and I put all my clothes in there since I was staying for a week. Pretty sure we have always had them in our AKL rooms

I was thinking of calling my CC company--but I also emailed IPO and asked, and they said if it arrives after we leave that they'd forward it on to us. So worst case scenario, I just put down a deposit on next year's trip.

12 days--the countdown continues! Sad though because DD (11) is going across the country to visit cousins tomorrow with MIL and niece. 3 days after she returns we head for Disney. I have great anxiety about being so far away from her. I am happy for her too though. Trying not to worry and stay focused on packing and planning. Need good vibes!

Also when I look at standard, it says 2 queens or king with daybed.
Copied and pasted from the disney website:

Standard View
View Photos
Views of Rooftop or Parking Area
2 Queen Beds or 1 Queen Bed and 1 Bunk Bed or 1 King Bed and 1 Day Bed or 1 Queen Bed and 1 Day Bed
Sleeps up to 4

I hope this is correct, cuz my kids really want bunk beds!

Chest of drawers are usually in end rooms.

When we stayed CL last year, we requested a chest.
