    The meat packing will take minutes prior to us getting on the plane to fly to Orlando Florida and cook when we stay at our Villas at Kidani. (notice the reference to AKL and validity to posting here).

    We still have many boxes of music to pack and all kinds of other stuff to do before I can even think of packing for our trip!

    ....none of the rooms are 'windowless'; they all have sliding glass doors which open up onto a balcony. However, most Std rooms have a view of the parking lot. I wouldn't fret about it too much, since there are plenty of 'public' viewing areas for your DD to enjoy those animals....besides, the time of year that you will be visiting is considered 'value' season, so it's less likely that WDW will be crowded, and you stand a better chance of getting an upgrade (although you shouldn't count heavily on it! :thumbsup2 )

    We had a parking lot view, but there were quite a bit of trees blocking the lot. We could see the cars, but it wasn't hateful. Since it was the third floor one just saw tops of some cars.

    We have always been able to fit Bob's ECV in our room. Sometimes it is a bit tight, but we manage. And we have never had an accessible room.

    Good morning, Js and Ks! :sunny:

    Silly question, since I am on my cell... is this thread on the resorts board or the community board?

    Bob and I are booked for our next Disney trip! Thanks to the kindness of a good friend who happens to be a WDW CM, we have a wonderful rate at the BC for November 2~9. Food and Wine Festival will still be going on and it ought to be cooler (hopefully) than our early October trips. We left ourselves the option of adding an AKL night at the beginning of the trip if we get good airfare. :)

    I guess I need to get a countdown when we get back home from Bob's doctor appointment! :yay:

    Brandi, would you please amend our stay on THE list?

    We plan to arrive between 1:00 and 1:30 for our July trip. How likely are we to be able to get into our room at that time?

    It is not a requirement, this is just so you can see who all might be there the same time as you and you might meet up...

    You have been added

    ...not very, since it is a very busy time of year, but you never know....:confused3 ;) ....I suggest bringing along a change of clothes (perhaps swim suits?) to lounge by the pool during the afternoon until your room is definitely ready....and mebbe a quick lunch at The Mara?
