Also, are there ice machines?
Our DVC room had a whirlpool mini fridge.. I made a comment to the bellman and he said only a few had been removed from AKL... So, maybe it wasn't as wide spread

3. We found signal and speed very good. We were located near reception in Kadani.
4. No issues that I know of. It was also good by the pool.

The wifi in the parks was also very good. DW was able to connect her phone most of the time without using her network. Downtown Disney also. So there is no excuse not to update us on your trip lol..l

Hope this helps! How exiting your AKV time is nearly here. Paula x

I find 5AM works better than 5PM (as in amount of traffic changes connectivity).

Flooding on forth floor

Did you all here this?.... it was posted on here and it happened 7/19/13... Said 6 families had to be moved and Mara had some issue's with this too... I have mold and Mildew allergies and thinking of calling up my IPO to confirm this and request not to be put in that area. Drying out a rug with a soaked pad takes some time and the climate needs to be humid free and very cool to properly dry of its a breeding ground for mold to grow. Apparently a guest knocked down the sprinkler head in the shower. Apologies if this was already discussed, just hopped on and posted...

I am new to AK thread but I 1. Don't think it ever hurts to put something on your request related to health issues; 2. Sprinkler water is actually pretty dirty and stinky so if the damage is significant (one sprinkler head lets out a lot of water within minutes - flooded a whole department with 7 inches of water on 5 minutes - equal to the size of one chain in Kidani). This will be a significant cleanup for Disney. More than likely furniture tossed or if hard wiped down with disinfectants, carpet needs to be replaced, walls if saturated to much replaced. I've lived through it. 3. It's Disney I would have no concern of them doing it right. Even though in the resorts I've stayed at they should have their sprinkler heads up in the ceiling with a cap.

I agree, I will call this week and request a floor that wasn't effected by the flooding, apparently this went on for 40mins so I could imagine the amount of water damage done was significant...

My DW does this too. I joke she needs to be surgically removed from her phone. In fact I am dreading this FP+ for this reason! Any excuse to get out the phone results in 'seeing an email' and her dealing with it grrr!

We have a rule on vacation. Her phone remains in the safe except for one hour a day she chooses. Lol. Then it goes back in!

THANKS for the heads up on this!!

DH & I booked AKL, PV for Sept. 15th-22nd and we were going to make final payment this weekend and request a room in the zebra trail. I'm sure it will be dry by then, but I will keep this in mind.

THANKS to all here for the wonderful information about AKL! We have stayed on property at 6 of the resorts and visited AKL this past Christmas and fell in love! We stayed off property once-our very first visit, which was on our honeymoon in 1977!

I would like to suggest Giraffe trail for a Pool View..it is super close to the buses/ lobby / pool...I loved it. There is an elevator in the middle so going to the pool is a short trip.

We were in 5577 this weekend and it was a HAUL from the lobby...sheesh..I needed to pack a lunch for the walk! LOL

here are our pictures
