Sounds amazing! I had the same thought about it going against AK, but I would have said the same about out local zoo and they have a taxidermy white tiger for some reason... Thanks for replying!

It is hard, I have nearly had a couple of slip ups.

She is having a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory birthday party the weekend before we go. I wrapped up a stuffed Oompa Loopma holding a golden ticket with the trip information. We will give it to her then, that way she will have a couple days to plan still. We arrive at WDW on her actual birthday.

What a wonderful way of surprising her! My son is only five, so I'm not sure how to surprise him. His old sisters know already. I was thinking of a scavenger hunt of some sort. Fortunately, I have plenty of time to plan (although I suspect the next four months will go by fast).

AKL doesn't accept faxes -- they haven't for several years now. Your best bet is to call and have the CM note your requests; or you can make them during online check-in (best to make the requests over the phone )

Room category map?

Hi folks!

I have been scrolling through pages and pages of AKL and Kidani threads hoping to find one of the maps that shows the room categories and room types for each floor. I have used them in the past for other DVC properties but despite hours of reading and scrolling, I am coming up with nothing.

Can someone please tell me if such a map exists for Kidani? Here's an example of what I am looking for http://www.parkinfo2go.com/dvc-akv/floor5.php

I would really appreciate some help! Thank you so much in advance!

Apologies if this question has been asked before. We are booking AKL for the first time and have noticed that Arusha View bunk beds is slightly more expensive than Savannah View bunk beds, why is this, and is it worth it?
TIAx

Arusha view is the center horseshoe rooms.. More animal viewing..so more expensive.
A savannah view could be an outside room.. Still see animals, but not with the certainty of Arusha
(That photo I took above is Arusha view)

Thanks for that One more question please, as we are arriving from the UK we will be up really early the next morning,is there anything we can do like safaris,animal interations etc early saturday morning? We wont have a park ticket at that point because we're only at AKL for one night before moving to the YC. Thank you.
