You won't know if you don't try.........


And if AKL doesn't work out, the Mods are very comfortable and, hey, at least you'd be at WDW!

Or...... how about Swan or Dolphin? Teacher Discount, AAA Discount........

you have to get creative!

I don't think so. I just had a look at the availability at AKV for the dates you have stated and both Kidani and Jambo House had studios available in both standard view and Savannah view.

....this may sound snobbish of me, but the last three WDW visits didn't include a WDW-resort stay, and I REALLY want to stay, not only on-property, but at a WDW resort....I miss AKL....

Get on the phone to Disney this morning and have the CM look for discounts and explore your options. (Make sure you get a cracker-jack CM -- one who is enthusiastic to work with you. If not, end that call and try again! )

Not snobbish at all. Seriously, try David's today. And call WDW today.




What are the exact dates you want to book?

In fact, last night we were next door at his sister's house, celebrating my DNeph's 8th birthday, and my DH's brother mentioned that he had accumulated about 400 Visa points and offered them to us, figuring that he's probably not going to be visiting WDW any time soon, if ever again! Gee, I wish that I had such a generous brother.... [ ]
Hey I didn't know Keith had Vacation points too....LoL Besides I have a measly 39 points which along w/ next years points are going to be consumed rather quickly for the California trip...

I too would check Davids....Way way cheaper. Even now with people trying at the last minute there are some getting rid of points for $10 & $ 8 per point...A huge savings.
