DH and I are planning a trip to WDW in January, and will be taking my mom who is a fairly active 73 y.o. I have resort choices narrowed down to AKL and WL. I like the idea of seeing the animals at AKL - but have heard the rooms are "dark" ? Mom is also sensitive to smells. Is there a noticable smell from the animal areas? I am leaning toward AKL - but have these doubts about what mom would enjoy. Thinking of a "deluxe" room at either resort. Doesn't that mean a nicer, somewhat larger room? Thanks for your input.
