I read on an earlier post that Mara has switched to Joffreys.

You might see some Lovebugs flying around. They won't hurt you.

I think they show movies by the pool every night. And I've never noticed flying bugs. Floor bugs a few times though.

They are not booked through DVC. So, they may get enough filters and coffee daily for 3 adults?

Hello AKL pros!!
Question for you all. Any idea if AKL is one of the resorts that get discounts (room only or dining) for early May? Just trying to figure out my odds. Thank you.

I think it's two bags of coffee and two filters each day. I'm not a coffee drinker so not sure if that's enough, I know some people drink a lot.

Yes, in early May it's typically the room discount. AKL is usually included. I believe it was 25-30% off last year. We are checking into Jambo House on may 10th! Can't wait!

I can't answer about the Lodge/Villas because we've never stayed here before, but we do arrive in 19 days, yay! But I can tell you that you can use both pools, and it doesn't matter if you're staying in Kidani or Jambo House
Have a great trip!

....that's because all the resorts are sprayed in the grassy/foliage areas around the pool and gardens very early in the morning....

We had 2 packets of coffee each day. It is a large pod enough for one pot (12 cups).


If they are not DVC, Mousekeeping should replace each day

Pixie Dust was waiting fir us

[I]Just returned from a week at AKL and cant say enough about it. Talk about Pixie Dust. Booked a pool view and was upgraded to Savanna on Kudu trail! 11th visit to Disney and this is the first time this ever happened. Stayed at WL twice , dont know which I like better. WL transportation was better in my opinion. Looking forward to out next visit.

We have stayed at WL and this will be our first at AKL. I hope we love it as much as we did WL.
