We check in Thursday night!
How do your boys like the resort? I'm excited for our 7 year old to see it.

That's great!! You guys will LOVE it!!

I have a 3 and 6 year old, and they love the resort so much that they declined a park today to stay and swim...lol

Jambo pool is the bigger one, but the slide is smaller. We visited Kidani pool today, and it was both boys fav! My 3yr old loved the smaller slide, and my 6yr loved the bigger one! Its 126 ft long and is very twisty.
They have tons of activites going on all the time and around the pool.

There is a pool party every day at both pools at 3pm.

I don't regret staying at AKL for even a second!

Sounds like you're having a great time there! We check in on Thursday night too. Have you done any of the resort activities? We're wondering what they're offering this week...

We will be at AKL I'm three more days. Can't wait. We love it there. Glad you like it. Boma is definitely one of our favorites for breakfast.

They have all sorts of activities!

*movies at night
*campfire (story telling and roasting of marshmellows)
*pool games (bingo, hula hoop contests etc..lots of variety)
*pool party every day at 3pm
and lots more fun stuff for the kids.

This morning my boys watched a CM feed all the pelicans. The CM's are great and answer any and all questions about the animals.

Enjoy your trip!!

Thank-you!

I can see why you love it! Its so hard to explain to people how great it is until you've seen it with your own eyes.

We are very excited for our Savanna view tom, and will enjoy sitting on the balcony watching the animals.

Boma was delicious and we are thinking of eating there again one more 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.
Yes, give it a try! They have a lot of unique items, and we really enjoyed trying them.
I was told that the price does change depending on the season, but $18.99 really is a great price for what you get
Enjoy!

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 .
So, we went for dinner at Chef Mickey's (1st time and it was great!) and then took the monorail over to the Poly, and we LOVED IT!! My boys were so excited and kept asking if we were staying at this resort...lol
The pool is great, and loved watching the fireworks and EWP from the beach. Love the tropical theming as well. Its such a different resort from AKL, but not in a bad way, just theme wise its very different.
Tom, we are going to check out WL and then make our final decision. I want the boys to see both resorts and then they can pick the one they want to stay at
As for Boma, yes, you should really try it if you can. In less then 2 days we have done Boma breakfast, T-rex dinner and Chef Mickey's dinner. All were really good, but so far Boma is my fav food wise.
Tom we have lunch at Crystal Palace, so fingers crossed we have another great meal!
