    I love shipping my luggage! When I get toward the bottom of Shampoo etc, I put it in a box. That's what gets shipped on vacation, then I throw away the empty for the trip home--and have access to souvenir space.
    Let me Check w Dh re the fitness center. He told me everything was closed up when he went down there. He may have meant the lockers etc.

    We just booked October 30- November 3 @ AKL (for now) trying to decide if we should go somewhere else for this trip just to be different, but my heart keeps saying stay with what you love.

    Thanks so much for the link! Allears had a number of photos to give me an idea of the possible views ... Now, I will start praying for a complimentary upgrade ... perhaps they won't be able to sell out all of those obscenely priced savannah view room, and I might actually get a sprinkle of pixie dust which has eluded me in over 35 on-property stays :)

    Thank you so much for the add! I am not going to let a less than stellar balcony view impact a wonderful vacation. Having visited and explored the Lodge last year before a dinner reservation at Boma, we were able to experience the public viewing areas and the exquisite beauty of the Lodge and grounds. DS and I are beyond excited for this trip!

    You're welcome.

    I wouldn't mind the view of the resort entrance and porte cochere - but being directly over the smoking area might be unappealing :smokin:

    The one time I booked a Std. view, I was bumped up to a Sunset Savanna view. It wasn't a very good location of the savanna but I wasn't about to complain :goodvibes

    Hope you wind up in a room you are happy with.

    Just booked our flights last night with our JetBlue points. The bad news: our original departure date cost too many points for us. The good news: we only had enough points to move out departure date to 1 day earlier!! Now we just need to decide where to stay the first night. :)

    Hello again,

    We're about 2 and a half months away and naturally some questions are coming up. So I came to the experts.

    1. I saw the new menu changes for Sanaa and have read all the great reviews so I'm thinking we should try it. My question is, is it a good restaurant for kids? I have a 6 and 2 year old and don't want to feel out of place.

    2. Night vision goggles. I read you can use them. Who can use them (adults? Kids?) and where can you get them?

    3.Our trip is short, 5 days,and will be doing a day-ish at each park. Are there any absolute must dos on the resort that we should find the time to do?

    On the night vision goggles, there is a CM who has the goggles. The CM let's each person take a turn to use the goggles. Children can use them also, but it would be very hard for a very young child to see anything.

    The viewing area is beyond the smaller spa.
