Bumping this up cause May is coming up fast!!! I added some more info.... We are tentatively planning a trip for May of 2009. The total number adults is 5 (2 couples, 1 single) and 4 children ages 2 - 6. Where would you stay if this were your group? We would group in the room as follows: 2 adults/2 kids 1 room, 3 adults/2 kids another room or suite OR 2 adults/2 kids 1 room, 2 adults another room, 1 adult/2 kids final room Money is a factor, but we do not want to stay in a value. We also do not want to stay offsite. I was originally thinking about 2 adjoining rooms at POFQ because we know and LOVE that resort. But I am also thinking this might be our last Disney trip for a while, so it could be good to mix it up. I am REALLY inclined to stay at AKL. I have been looking into the villas at AKL and would love to hear your thoughts and experiences with them. Does anyone know if they have a dishwasher? The advantage of a kitchen becomes moot if I have to clean a lot. What are the advantages of booking a villa through a travel agent vs. getting a cheaper same-villa through a DVC member? Can I get the DDP if I book through a DVC member? If we get the DDP I wonder what is the point of having the kitchen at all. I am also concerned about AKL being so "remote". I never felt like that traveling from Pop or POFQ to AK, but maybe I wasn't paying attention? Do they have a direct bus to DTD? I do love the idea of the kids center onsite at AKL, one thing we missed out on last time was having some babysitting/kids center at POFQ so DH and I could have some couple time.
