Someone asked about the scallops and they were an appetizer.

We had great luck with the buses on our trip. We went to AK, DHS, & Epcot but not MK until we moved to BLT.

I spoke at length with two different CMs at the bus stop at AKL (I heard several others talking to them as well.). Since you were there the week after us, that gives me hope that they were actually listening!

But, you guys were lucky to board at Kidani. We had quite a few busses arrive after long waits that were standing room only at Jambo House.

We will be checking into Jambo 5/22-5/30!!!!
That's fantastic!

Right outside. Jersey city.

To keep on topic. Is the face painting at akl "scary" at all? Dd6 is very girly. Will she still like it?9

....they can pretty much do whatever she may like....also, your DD might want to try out the hair-braiding by the pool, although I don't know if they still do that...

In our experience a couple of weeks ago every trip to Magic Kingdom took a minimum of 40 minutes each way. So, to return for an afternoon break & then go back to the park in the evening would mean at least 2 hours on a bus - and that's cutting it to 30 minutes each way.

But, we are park commandos and two hours of lost park time makes me .

So, Kim & I are both right!

It just depends on your travel style.
We're so crazy we walked/ran from Epcot to the back of DHS to ride TSM in 20 minutes one night because we didn't think the boat would go fast enough!
We made it just as they closed the park for the night & a boat didn't pass us as we were walking, so we made the right call.

Staying at akl for the first time in less than two weeks!!! Sooooo excited. Been dreaming of staying here. We got a pool view and a dinner at boma. Dh is still griping at the extra cost. But i figure once he gets there he will stop lol.
Any of you guys have a pool view..how was it??
