Congrats on the BB upgrade . Your boys will love them. We had a BB room at the WL when our DSs were younger and they loved them....plus there was no bed sharing, which was a plus.

As far as the WL....it's an awesome resort, but the Poly is heavenly . You will have a great time at WL, but if you have the chance to switch to the Poly, I don't think you would regret it. We love the WL, but our favorite is the Poly for many reasons.



Have fun planning your 2nd Disney trip. I usually start planning the next trip before we've left the one we're on .

Have a great time being in Disney for 16 days .
Thanks!! We're heading over to the Poly tonight, so I'm going to make my decision tonight! I will let you know what we decide

Thanks again!!!

Hi!

Boma was AWESOME!! We would eat there again in a heartbeat! Very well priced ($18.99 Adult & $10.99 Child)

So much variety and soooo tasty!!

It was pretty busy, but maybe cause its a Sunday, but the restaurant itself has lots of room to walk around. We had a 10:30am reservation, and there was a very small line to wait in to check in. They were also accepting walk in's.

The resort itself is almost to full capacity, but it does not feel that way!
The pools get busier in the afternoon, but still plenty of room to swim and have fun! Lots of pool chairs, and towels etc...

Hope I answered everything, and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!!

Cheers

I will take a pic and post one once I figure it out...lol

We are in Room 3454 in Zebra Trail.

We can see the pool, but a lot trees block it, but we have no compliants!

And, thanks for the advice on the BB and AP's! That is a very wise thing to do, and I'm going to definitely look into that, thanks!!!

We've been to Boma for dinner many times, but have yet to try breakfast. Glad you found it very good.....I'm determined to try breakfast on our next trip as I've read nothing but great things about it .

If you think your next trip will be 2 or more resorts again, make sure you book the BBs that way. You can always modify (pending availability) or cancel later, but you can't make a split out of 1 resort under a BB once you've left Disney.
I'm going to do that!! Great plan!

Thanks again for some more great advice

I would love to try the breakfast at Boma, especially now that I find out that it is only $18.99. I'll have to figure a way to get over there some time.

The current bounce back might be for free dining next September. I'm not sure if they have released the room only bounce back for 2014 yet.

I'm glad that you like the AKL. It sounds amazing.

Enjoy your stay at AKL. It was the resort we stayed at for our very first trip as well. We loved it!

3 Weeks from today we will be checking into AKL Jambo and can't wait. I have to agree the resort is breathtaking and Boma is the best breakfast buffet. This is my 2nd stay at AKL but DH's first I can not wait to see his reaction.

Have a magical trip!

We have stayed at AKL once, but are coming back in January! We are very excited and plan on trying the Boma for breakfast this trip

Sounds like you're having a wonderful time! Thanks for the updates
