I actually prefer Kidani. Love the two bathrooms! Love the laid back pace. Since we cook a lot of meals in our Villa, I don't miss the quick service restaurant at all.

Kim, talk to me. I have points, will rent them very economically. Seriously.

So that's what you've been doing hanging out on the DL forum!

I guess if we did a non park vacation, I'd want to be closer to the resort action. We mostly spend our time in the parks. When we stayed at Kidani, I bought groceries to make breakfast in the room.

So that's what you've been doing hanging out on the DL forum!
LoL Looking to change it up next February hopefully....At 1st I was skeptical but, hoping that this plan will come into fruition...

With a measly 160 points its very hard to manage this into the amount of time I'd like to go..LoL which realistically would be 364 days a year. 1 day off would be sufficient..RIGHT? LoL

....of course, I could drop the Dining Plan, bringing it down to $1,832.36, and YOU could cook us our meals every day...

Thank you! We are excited to go back "home". We ventured out and tried CR and BC and those resorts just don't do it for us like AKL. : Can not wait for snacks, drinks, sitting and watching the animals.

You want to go for the second set of dates. The 6th is the last day of Premier Season and the points drop substantially starting the 7th.

being its a Saturday yes its already higher & like she stated last day for the High season as well. But if extra$120 or so that you'll spend per point is waay cheaper than the extra you'd pay for the airfare I'd just do it.

Gotta split for a while . Gonna practice baseball w/ Matt DS .hopefully things work out. If you end up going that Saturday LMK & I'll try n book Dining for us that night.
