    That sounds delicious! How far in advance does this need to be booked? If you are staying on rented points does the owner need to call for you or can you just call the concierge #..? TIA! :goodvibes

    There is a TR on the DVC section where a woman and her family stayed CL at AK and did the Sunrise Safari. She has extensive pictures of the buffet and lots of pics of the lounge offerings. It's called 13 glorious days at Christmas. ..

    I was going to try a massage when we were there in Jan but choked at the prices. $180 for a 50 min Swedish! I'm all for paying for quality but that left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm hoping that since we stayed during the switch from the old company (Nicky Bryant?) to wdw there was a miscommunication.

    Zahanati Spa and Fitness Center is located at Jambo House.

    Way back in 2004 I had a facial and an aromatherapy massage. From what I remember, I enjoyed them both. At that time, I thought the price was consistent with other spas.

    Ooo aromatherapy massage. Sounds awesome! We are going to just hang out at the resort at least one of the days so I'm going to look into the spa for sure.

    Sounds awesome to me!

    This is our very first trip to Disney, let alone to AKL. I'm thinking of making reservations at Boma for dinner. Does this sound like a good idea? I've heard the food is good...?

    Well I for one am pretty darn excited I finally decided to bite the bullet and rent DVC points at Kindani Village for our June trip. :yay:

    We have a standard studio. Can anyone recommend a good area to request for a room? Want to be close to the lobby.

    What time does Johari treasures open in the morning so that I can grab my morning coffee?

    The front desk will be able to help me buy park pass and add them to my KTTW card correct? I don't have to go to guest services at the parks to do this right?

    The food at Boma is AMAZING! We eat there 2-3 times every trip, even the short 4-5 day trips!

    So the spa is no longer a Niki Bryan spa? I'm sending DH & DSs to the Atlanta Braves Training Camp at WWoS one day of our trip (they're playing our favorite team The Phillies while we're down there!) - I'm thinking a SPA DAY FOR MOM would be divine!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can you do the Wanyama safari if you're not staying at AKL?

    Would I be able to book a bounce back offer if I'm staying in a rented AKV room?

    I will definitely try the zebra domes then! :goodvibes

    Can I get some opinions? We got the standard room for 8 nights but I'm still trying to decide if we want savannah view. The difference is $1400 and my kids will be 6 and 8 years old. I'm thinking the money could be better spent elsewhere but I also don't want to miss out on it if it's the most awesome thing ever. I just don't know how much time we will spend in the room...tough choice.

    ok, quirky question....

    We are staying in a studio, I know it will have a coffee pot, and I know mousekeeping only comes every 4 nights.... can I ask for more coffee? Is there a charge for it?

    Are you staying on points or a cash ressie? If its cash then you get Mousekeeping every night & all the free coffee replenishment that you want. If you're DVC or renting DVC points, then you can purchase a "coffee pack" for $3 from Mousekeeping.
