Is it white plains or westchester that doesn't have parking? I have done that airport once...How can you not have parking at an airport?? Luckily my MIL drove us, but that is some fine print you don't want to miss! Well, ok, fine, they have a teeny tiny lot that is full as soon as 5 cars park there...Orbitz actually tells you when you buy tickets...So Silly!

I can't even get into planning the next one yet, I have to wait a year, but that will give me a year to investigate all the resorts...DD wants to go back to GF, DH and DS liked AKL, and I want to try something new... We go in bulk (3 trips in one year time) so maybe we can all be happy

What about Albany? We are in nepa, and its eqidistance (or close enough) to check PHL ALB JFK EWR and LGA. Plus parking and in/ out at Albany is easier.

We love Boma breakfast. We have skipped it the last couple of trips and DH begged me to add it to this upcoming trip, especially since we will be staying right at Kidani.

Do you like Boma dinner? It's not that we disliked it and couldn't find anything to eat, I just don't think anything blew us away like Jiko or Sanaa does, and maybe we were expecting it to? I would try it for breakfast I think. I will say this about Boma dinner...They did have a great kids selection. My DD6 ate 5 meatballs, and she doesn't usually eat meatballs. My ds3 would have loved the meatballs, but he was so pre-occupied with not having to go to the bathroom, that he couldn't eat a thing... Ahhh, the joys of potty training...He is trained but there are certain things (well, one thing really) he just won't do in public...sheesh! Maybe that clouded our dinner

No offense meant....

I know this is completely not allowed but let's just SAY that someone on this board were a DVC member and just happened to be randomly checking availability. I'm really, really considering a quick trip down to Orlando now thanks to family crisis.... we just lost our dog. I'm thinking about 4/4 - 4/7 or 4/11 - 4/14. What are our chances for a 1br or a studio at either Jambo or Kidani? Disney is starting to put out some decent hotel rates for the second time period but my sister could come and help us out with the kids if we go the earlier period. But that would me 1br. If just me, DH and the babes, we could do studio.

Should I just look at booking through Disney? Or consider trying to rent? What would you do?

Oh we LOVE Boma breakfast - and we're not super breakfast people. But there are lots of neat things to try and we've always had wonderful service.

Actually, I have been on the site looking for those exact dates (the second set) and yes they are available for studios at both resorts.

So sorry about your dog.

I don't think you're breaking any rules with your post. At this point, I suggest you try everything! check price through Disney; see if a rental agency might be able to secure a rental for you; check the DVC rental board here.

If you decide to rent, if this is your first time renting, unless you know (and trust) the individual you would be renting from -- I would recommend going through an agency (David's is the only one I am aware of - but I know there are others). You pay more per point, but you also have the security of knowing you won't get scammed.

I hope you are able to work something out.

I just used Davids for the trip last week and they were really wonderful! So easy, I would definitely check them out! I am planning to use them again in 2 years...

Will gladly add you....... we only list username though (not family names) - I hope that's OK with you.

Are you staying AKL Jambo, AKV Jambo or Kidani?
