Well after 3 hours on the phone, I didn't get my 1st choice (BC GV) or my 2nd (AKL PV BB), but I did get my 3rd (AKL PV). The DH has a 1/2 day in the field today, so he can be in the office the other 1/2 since his mom and dad have to return parts and he has to be in the office to baby sit his brother and make sure he works (sorry for the rant), so I'm going to go with him this morning. When I get back, I'll update my ticker with an AKL one.

wookie, editing my response to your post... congrats on getting AKL PV. You are a veteran of all things Disney so you know you can keep checking back for your first choice. There is a mad rush at the beginning of FD, and Disney will at times release more rooms under the promo. If not, still keep checking....as we all know people do *change* their reservations....

Does anybody know anything about Stay at WDW? What would you do? If I cancel my reservation now, do I get the $200 deposit back?
Absolutely.... you are more than 45 days out, right? Sounds like a good deal if you would like to experience DVD and get a SV room.

Oops...I meant SV as in Standard View. Lol. I didn't think about the fact that it could stand for Savannah View. :-)

I checked with the company and they have availability at Jambo or Kidani, but the only thing they guarantee is standard view or savannah view. (I would love Jambo standard view and request pool view, but obviously they have more available at Kidani)

Hmmm...is there much difference between a standard room and a deluxe studio? The 1 BR is still over budget so that's not an option...

Congrates on your booking AKL PV! I agree keep checking for your first and second choices.

Melissa
Yes, that's the main reason we also have not stayed there. We go to about 2 parks each day. I also think we've been spoiled by stayed at a monorail resort. :/

You know what feels awesome? Saving a client over $600. Know what's even more awesome? The email she sent me thanking me for my work and knowledge and as they put it "dedication to planning their most magical vacation ever." Now I don't mind being exhausted

That's great to hear!!!! I understand the cancer scare, from family members and a personal scare.

Have a Drs Appt this afternoon so I spent the morning rethinking my trip plans and made a couple of Alternate ADRs in case I switch things up. I am second guessing my descison to skip SOA, mainly cause I have no idea what s to become of it once DVC is built??? I have fond memories of when we went as a family many years ago. Ugh Why can't I ever leave my plans as is? I even made a backup BOG then cancelled it.

Have a great Day!

That was a marathon phone call. I'm glad you got something you wanted... even if it was 3rd choice.

And doing something you love to do. A job well done!

Pas: I'm so going to blame the dog when the TF forgets her rounds.

Melissa: I bet it WOULD fit in the back of a normal-sized SUV. I sometimes miss that lil' Tonka-with-an-Engine.

and to our lovelies ... Janet, I_Heart, Candace, Ginny, DznyCrzy11, Sue, GG, Sheila, Kooksterama and anyone else I've missed.

oh, I did assume savana view!

Believe the Jambo standard studios are 365 sq. ft (believe these are converted from the deluxe rooms)...the value studios are 314 (converted from the Lodge standard rooms)...

Our stay at Kidani, was in a standard view room. We rented points about 2 months out and this was the only thing available. We were very happy at Kidani, enjoyed the peaceful feeling... less hectic.. great pool/kids area... kidani also offer nightly marshmallow roasts... btw...there is a shuttle back and forth between the 2 resorts. We had a car and really liked having the parking under the resort... perfect for those hot humid august days!!

I can understand wanting to be in the AKL especially with younger kids in tow. BTW reading all ears - at Jambo it states that 80% of all rooms offer savanna views!! So if at Jambo there would be a great chance to have a savanna view.
