All rooms have balconies, so you have to have a view of something???

But, no worries! There are LOTS of public viewing areas. You can even view them at night with night vision goggles- free!

Thanks for the new home Kim!

Tracey, most resorts let you park an ECV in the halls. If not you can get it in the room, but it might be tight.

Joining the thread with a few days to go!

Please add me to the list: Jan 21-26. It's sort of our honeymoon? We're getting married Feb 6 and not taking a trip after so this pre-marriage trip is it for us.

We will be doing our second trip to AKL in early September. Also it will be our first time doing club level. I'm so excited.

I always thought AKL would be my least liked resort, but we loved it so much! We can't wait to get back.

What an awesome idea!
Chance to get away & relax before all of the rush & craziness of your wedding. I think we spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon just decompressing, so by the time we wound down enough to enjoy it was almost time to go home. Wish someone had suggested that to us back in the day!

The meat packing will take minutes prior to us getting on the plane to fly to Orlando Florida and cook when we stay at our Villas at Kidani. (notice the reference to AKL and validity to posting here).

We still have many boxes of music to pack and all kinds of other stuff to do before I can even think of packing for our trip!

....none of the rooms are 'windowless'; they all have sliding glass doors which open up onto a balcony. However, most Std rooms have a view of the parking lot. I wouldn't fret about it too much, since there are plenty of 'public' viewing areas for your DD to enjoy those animals....besides, the time of year that you will be visiting is considered 'value' season, so it's less likely that WDW will be crowded, and you stand a better chance of getting an upgrade (although you shouldn't count heavily on it! )
