AKL condensed -w/small kids

Ok, so I am strongly leaning toward AKL...after crunching numbers and looking at different options and talking about it and pondering...etc etc. LOL

I have little ones so I just don't have time (nor the patience at times LOL) to search through pages of pages of information surrounding this beautiful resort.

I'd like to know the following (links ok if there is not too much to read...LOL)

Which building...Kidani or Jambo? why?

Is Savanna view absolutely necessary like yourfirstvisit said?

How much are the children's services currently? $70? And for how long 2hrs?

And if you have small children, why do you like it personally?

Thank you in advance for responding!

Kidani consists of DVC units. Jambo has regular units and some DVC units. If you're looking for the regular hotel, Jambo is your choice.

For me, yes, emphatically. We spend a good part of every afternoon with a coke or a glass of South African wine contemplating the animals. For you...? I don't know you. Maybe you spend every moment of your day in the parks contemplating your next Fast Pass? In which case, the view should be of no interest at all. Maybe you are a people-watcher...in which case a pool view might be a reasonable middle ground. Consider your touring style as part of the data that has to be crunched.

I think the kids clubs are about $12 per head per hour. Money well spent as kids need some free play time away from all that standing in line.

Thank you! My tastes change....I don't like to consider one thing over the other.....I like to see what my options are. What frightens me is people watchers in pool area! Eek! Lol
