Oh my. You guys are making ME seriously think about a trip that weekend 4/8 -4/12. I'd decided against it since I didn't think I'd be able to rent points. Off to troll the rental boards! But I would need a 1br....maybe it's possible? Wish me luck - I NEED a vacation. Now.

We got back to the resort after a morning at the AK and stepped into the lobby to find these gals (as we knew from the safari the night before) right down the hallway to the left towards our room. We stopped to admire them and take some pictures.





As we were admiring them, this guy stops and does a double take. He’s all, “Those are real zebras! Oh my God!” I’m thinking how can you stay here and not know this? Well he was a guy who worked for one of the scooter delivery companies, he was just there dropping off a scooter for a guest. We told him that there were all kinds of animals, not just the zebras, but giraffes, cattle, and all sorts of stuff. He told us that we had turned his sucky day into a pleasant one.







I took some pictures out on the Savannah, this was going to be our last night at the AKV, so I’m almost out of pictures from this trip.

We've been here since Thursday and what an amazing resort! We were sprinkled with some Disney magic and were upgraded to Sunset Savanna view. Upon first stepping into the room we were greeted by four reticulated giraffes! I knew then I was in for a magical week.
More to come...

....my. head. is. spinning.


....DH wants a cheap flight, but doesn't want a connecting one; also willing to pay a little more, but DOESN'T want LGA....I can't seem to coordinate all these constraints!

If you get an early flight & it takes a lil longer to go to the NY airports, How would u be getting there anyhow...If paying for a car service whats the difference then? Where you fly from.

We got back a week ago today it was a lovely stay. We had a wonderful room with a great view. Jambi 5421, I think. We had giraffes, zebras, all kinds of animals right off our balcony all the time. I loved the zebra domes!! We ha some at boma, then I bought some at Mara and kept them in my bag. They were very good at room temp! The pullout sofa was an amazing mattress! Was that memory foam? The kids slept on it but I was impressed! My dd6 loved the water slide. It took a lot of coaxing by the life guard but once she went on we couldn't get her off.

Kim. We are from jersey too. I don't know where u are but we fly out of Philly sometimes. The flights are cheaper, parking is really cheap, and we found by the time we drove across the city in traffic an had our flight out of lga cancelled multiple times, we could have just as easily driven to Philly. Of course ewr is the best for us but such limited directs. With little ones I would rather drive a little farther and fly direct. Paying less doesn't hurt either . Good luck. I love going in April.

Thank you everyone for your help in making our trip great!!

I was just reading through the POR thread (that's where we stay when we can't afford AKL... ) and one of the regular posters over there said AKL is the first resort to have magic band trials, and they're going on right now. Just wondering if anyone at AKL can confirm, and what they've thought of the magic band if they've been able to try it out...
