AKV club level

Thinking about trying to geta couple nights club level for something special. I know it includes access to lounge with food. But what are the other benefits? I am interested in the sunrise safari. Has anyone done that - how does it work and what is the price?

We are staying in a studio for Spring Break 2014 in a club level room. Below is a website that we used to gather all our information. Good luck!

Club Level Amenities
  • Evening Turndown
  • Secured key access to the club-level lounge, serving refreshments 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily
  • Complimentary fax assistance
  • Opportunity to book and experience the Sunrise Safari Breakfast Adventure
  • Complimentary health club access
  • Pre-arrival Walt Disney World Resort itinerary planning
  • Personalized Front Desk and Guest Services
  • Access to Concierge service at the Kiliminjaro Club
  • Complimentary newspapers in Club Level lounge

I think the big plus is the ability to book the Sunrise Safari and to use the IP specialist to get those hard get reservations like BOG. And you check in direct at the Club Level. A CM will escort you to the Club Level for check in.

Everyone should try CL at AKV at least once. Short stays will let you experience CL without eating up extra points. The food and beverages are nice but IMO nothing special. Access to special events or tours should be taken advantage of.

The room locations and view are an issue. You don't get to request a view but will be given either a roof/part of pool view or the dead end savanna view.

I've been told several times that they have the same access and inventory that the public has.

It does sound nice to try it atleast once! Be good when we are doing a split/stay.

I plan to call at our 180 plus mark for all of our dining reservations! I do want to try BOG. I think it's May 13 for me to call.

I hope that you have a great time next week! We were planning to go March 16-21 but changed our mind and are now planning January 5-11 instead with our two daughters. We are also going in November with our son and friends.

I also think that club level rooms at AK Jambo booked with points receive daily housekeeping

Not only housekeeping, but full service. Meaning vacuuming, clean towels, make the beds, etc.

disfanforlife, be aware that the main issue applicable to club level is being able to actually get it. You usually need the 11 month home resort reservation window and even then it might be a problem. For example, you mention that you are going Jan 5-11. Club level is already completely full for that time. In fact, it is already full for that original time you had, March 16-21.
