    Free dinning is only when you buy (CASH) for a Disney Resort room.

    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between a deluxe studio with a savannah view and a regular studio? Obviously I know the view will be different but is that the only difference? I'm just not sure what makes it 'deluxe'. Thanks!

    A couple years ago they started calling all DVC studios "deluxe". They are just the same as aregular studio, it just sounds better.

    Congrats on the view upgrade, thanks for posting. Did you try the burgers at the Mara? Any good?

    That's what I thought. Thanks! :) I have a sort of weird question. How is the toilet paper in Kidani Village? I've only stayed at moderate and value resorts before and the paper there was really rough :blush: Has anyone stayed at a moderate or value and AKL and can compare for me? I might just tack some toilet paper onto my garden grocer order and use that. Also does Kidani have a grab and go station to grab drinks or pre-packaged foods at all? I know there is no counter service location but I'm wondering if we will have to go all the way to Jambo to grab an orange juice in the morning.

    Toilet Paper: We stayed at Pop in November (first time value), and I would say the TP was very thin and a little rough. We have no complaints with the TP at Kidani (very soft).

    My DH had a burger there two years ago that made him sick, so this trip he ordered it well done & loved it!!! He said he recommends it.

    If you like falafel, it is awesome there! =)

    Loving my stay at AKL Kidani so far.

    Ate breakfast at Boma's a few days ago - Loved it!!

    Had Zebra domes a couple days ago - loved them!! Want to have some more!!

    I find the studio rooms to be a little small with four people. And I do not like the beds. They lean and I feel like I am going to fall out. They feel like the bed is like this : ^, high in the middle low on the ends. Other than that the rooms are beautiful!! We also were given the room location right next to the lobby up a floor, very good location!! :)

    Ate at Sanaa last night - was very good especially the bread service and the painted lemur drink...yummy!!

    The pool area is beautiful and my kids love the pool slide and splash area.

    I wish there was a QS but the Mara is good at Jambo house.

    CM's here are really nice and helpful!

    Watching the animals are awesome!!

    I would definitely stay here again, just might upgrade to a one bedroom.

    Is it warm enough to swim right now? Hoping it is in 20 days! (Where are you from? I don't take swimming temp advice from Canadians, New Englanders, or Great Lake area peeps! Lol)

    Love Boma! Our breakfast there is our last day... Not sure we'll be able to hold off when we smell the yummy smells!

    Does Mara have some regional foods, too? Hoping for some falafel, hummus, or good soups.

    We were swimming last week & we're from NC. If the pool isn't warm enough the hot tubs will be for sure! :cloud9:

    They have hummus in the cooler @ the Mara. We didn't try it, but it looked great!

    DS 11 & I had the falafel pita for lunch twice. Loved it!!!

    There are lots if unique options there for QS, even yummy Zebra Domes for dessert!!! :woohoo:

    ...haven't tried the burgers, but I just LOVED the stew-filled bread bowls that you can get there! YUMMY!
