I know some of this has been answered already, but I'm just happy to see a question a relative newbie like me can answer. 1. As others have said, breakfast is a buffet at pizzafari. Just wanted to add that if you're celebrating something, make sure it's on your reservation - DH and I did the sunrise safari on my 40th birthday and I got a special birthday cupcake, and then the CMs felt bad for DH because he didn't have a dessert so they gave him a chocolate mousse (which is what they were giving to people celebrating anniversaries). We split them both, and that mousse was probably the best dessert I ate all trip (which is saying something, seeing as I lived on chocolate croissants and chocolate chip muffins from the CL, and we had dinner at Jiko one night with a dessert sampler, and did the fireworks dessert party too). Also, your guides stay and wander during breakfast, so you can ask them questions if you didn't get a chance on the tour. Ours were great - the red river hogs had had babies, and all the guides had "illegal" pix of them on their phones that they showed us when I told them I loved the hogs. 2. Our whole trip took almost exactly 3 hours, from leaving AKL to leaving the buffet after the safari. We were some of the last ones out of breakfast, though, so you could probably cut it a little shorter if you wanted. 3. I wouldn't bother with online checkin. There was another thread on here (maybe the CL thread?) where a couple people mentioned it caused problems. The CL CMs are great and will have you checked in in no time. Just make sure you put your guesstimated arrival time on the email the IPO sends you, and they will do their best to have a room ready. We got there at 11 a.m. and had our room by noon. 4. When you pull up to the front in your car, there are a number of CMs waiting in front with ipads. Just tell any of them you're CL, and they will take you upstairs to the lounge to check in. When we went through the guard station we got a blue parking permit instead of the usual white one, and we thought maybe that was to alert the valet/bell services folks we were CL, but we still had to ask a CM with an ipad, so maybe not - maybe they were just recycling some colored paper. 5. You will likely be spoiled beyond belief and never want to do non-CL again. Just be prepared. This was supposed to be a once in a lifetime thing for DH and me; now we're staying AKL CL again in Oct and going on the Disney Dream cruise in a CL cabin.
