I always bring my room card, simply for the fact that I need to get back in my room and if I want a snack or a drink by the pool, I have my charge.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!
We didn't try Sanaa this trip, I like some Indian food, but my wife hates curry, coriander, etc., and we ended up cancelling our ADR in advance because we knew my wife would end up hating it. Interesting to hear your story, I think it would have been like ours. I think that was the night we ended up just getting appetizers from the club lounge and then salads from the Mara for dinner. Overall on the trip we were very pleasantly suprised at how good the food was at Mara for quick service. Don't get me wrong, it's not a signature, but for what it is, it's good.
Yes, there are two pools, but Jambo (the original building, which does have some DVC rooms) and Kidani (the primarily DVC building) are about a half-mile apart, so in all likelihood, you would just use the one by you. They don't check your room card like at Beach Club, and there is no gate like BLT, so you don't NEED your room card, but as was said, it's generally good to have it with you anyway.
With that screen name, it's obvious! It's a little , but try to get to Contemp Cafe at the contemporary. Personally I think they have the best cupcakes in WDW, especially if you like them super sweet.
Bumping this. Congratulations on being a DVC owner AKL is the best! I'm sorry I can't help w/ Kidani but maybe someone else can?
There are some good pool views off of Zebra Trail. Some similar to this
I have been on Giraffe Trail before (in a pool view) and -in my case- they were not as good but were a good location for getting to bus stop and Zawadi Marketplace. I have pool view booked for June and am so excited!
Pool view can even mean this:
I liked it but some people might be disappointed with a view of a hot tub. Of course, we also got side views of Uzima Savanna so that helped
We totally agree. Mara is great for quick service!
Please add us to the list for November 2013. We will be at AKL Kidani in a Savannah view Studio November 30 through December 2 after our 7 night DCL Western Caribbean Cruise on the Fantasy.
I booked our 1st AKL stay, a 9 night early June trip, in a Standard View room as it was the only available and reasonably priced room with the AP discount. Booking a Savannah room was an additional $2000+ ... No way I could justify that expense. A standard view is described as a view of the parking lot or of a roof. I was wondering if anyone has or could post any photos of this view ... it will prepare me for the view I will have from my balcony for 9 days. TIA.
Would you kindly add me and DS12 for our 1st stay at AKL from 6/6/13 - 6/15/13. Thanks so much!
We're booked for CSR for Sept 25-Oct 1, but are having SERIOUS second thoughts. I have a couple of questions that y'all might be able to help me with.
1) Is the fitness center 24 hours? I've found conflicting information.
2) Has anyone tried the new offerings at Maji? From a new menu I found, it looks like they're getting some boxed lunches from Sanaa. Looks like a great use of a QS credit.
3) Any fees for shipping packages to the resort?
I think that's it for now...if there's a better place for me to be asking, I'd be happy to redirect.
We had a standard room this past September with a view of the parking lot. It wasn't bad at all, since we were on the fourth floor we were in the trees. The trees blocked the parking lot somewhat. I have a picture of the view in my TR. The link to the TR is in my siggie below.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience ... It is most helpful Unfortunately, I cannot view your TR nor your signature info & links on the DISboards mobile app. Definitely a failure to launch.

Welcome! I can only answer two of your three questions.
1) fitness center is not 24/7.
2) no idea sorry.
3) no fees for shipping. I shipped all of my luggage. I love the ease.
Brandi- Can we be the first on the list for Feb, 2014? 2/20-2/24 (or 25), AKL CL. My bday!!!! Plus I'm going to run the princess half with my mom.
Not op, but nooooo! I thought it was too.....
Thank you! I'm definitely shipping a package to myself. No dinky shampoo for me!
As to the fitness center, I think I found final word on the Disney site after posting my question. It wasn't where I'd expect the info to be, so it took a while to track down.
From Disney's Zahanati page:
Hours of Operation
Zahanati Massage & Fitness Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. An attendant will be available within the facility from 6:30 AM to 7:00 PM. After this time, you will not have access to restrooms, showers, sauna or the locker room. To utilize the health club during non-attended hours, you will be required to use your Key to the World card.
I'd love it if someone who is going to be onsite could confirm this for me. It will make a difference in where we stay if the hours are limited.
Just being at the Lodge will be great.
