    We stayed AKL in a DVC studio back in September. Here are some of the photos that I took if anyone would like to take a look. Just click on the picture below to see all of the photos. AKL is my favorite of the Deluxe resorts!

    Here are some photos from my stay in May. I had a savannah view room on the Arusha savannah on the 2nd floor. I can't remember the room number.

    On our April trip, we have reservations for the first night for a DVC studio at AKL, then the rest at Beach Club, with the first night waitlisted there. Part of me almost hopes the waitlist doesn't come through even though it'll be a pain moving resorts, I'm anxious to try out staying at the AKL/AKV though I think I'll wait until the new building is done before booking an entire stay there. Plus I think I'd want a car the whole time if I was staying there.

    Groucho - you will have to let me know how you like it if your waitlist does come through. I just booked 8 nights in a savannah view studio for June.

    Well, if the waitlist comes through, we won't be at AKV at all, and with the trip a good five months away, I'd be surprised if it doesn't. But if it doesn't, that's OK too. :) I'll probably do a full trip report again even though we'll be there "only" 7 days. :teeth:

    January 2006 we did a split stay at AKL and OKW. At AKL we had room 5030, which I believe would have been caught up in the conversion and would now be a DVC villa, which overlooked the pool but also had a limited view of the Uzima Savanna. All taken using my trusty 3.1 mp Canon Powershot S1 IS...

    My personal favourite, taken in the morning before the kids were up from the balcony:

    OT- but I have never seen hot air balloons over Disney- anyone know if that is a Disney thing or something in the area?

    See them every time we stay at AKL. It isn't a Disney thing; not sure who does it.

    They were not Disney related. I did see a name on one of the balloons, but never noted it down at the time.

    Since this thread popped up again... Jen, I just got a letter from DVC a couple days ago, our waitlist came through for our first night so we'll be in Beach Club the whole stay. Once they finish the new AKV building, we'll probably stay there next. I'm not sure if we'll make it to Boma or not this trip, so who knows if we'll even get to AKL in April... we'll see!

    that's ok - I will just have to let YOU know how it was. ;)

    I just finished our ADR's for our trip and also booked cat. 1 seats for La Nouba - we have seen it once before about 6 or 7 years ago and have been wanting to go again.

    I am really excited about staying at AKV now - I think the 70-200mm L lens will be the perfect tool to take along for that savannah view. ;)
