    So excited, not much longer now! :)

    So I've been putting off online check-in until I finished my exams, and now that I'm finally done :banana: I'm trying to figure out what I want...

    I'm not even sure what all the options are, so looking for suggestions! We have a regular Savannah room booked. We are more morning people, so somewhere with a nice view in the morning (plus we have two "late morning" days). But besides that I'm open... Close to transportation is nice, but not the be all and end all. :)

    TIA! :)

    Congrats! Those are the same dates that my family is going. We're in a 1BR at Kidani though, we rented points too. Maybe we'll see you and your little princesses there :)

    Considering an AKL CL and CR split stay in August. What are the typical afternoon offerings in the CL lounge? Is regular beer (like Bud Light) and wine available in the afternoons/evenings?

    How likely is it to request a queen with bunk bed room and get it?

    AP rates came out today for Standard view. I kept my pool view. It would have saved me about $150 but I thought, if I am ticked off all week looking at the parking lot, I would be mad at my self.

    So no dining or deals for me...

    but! 52 more days!

    Hehehe. I asked because I thought I read or saw in a pic somewhere that they were African wines/beers or something...maybe I'm making this up??

    Still unsure about a split stay...right now we have the first 2 nights offsite (Sea World) then 6 nights at CR (in a deluxe garden wing room - basically extra space). For some reason I got the idea to look into AKL CL. But I don't think I want to give up the CR completely either. Hence the split stay idea...

    Trying to figure out costs though with dining and park tickets, etc. Anyone have any insight on the best way to do it?

    Thanks so much!! :-)

    .....pretty decent wine selection at the Mara for wines....not sure about beers though...:confused3

    .....we recently returned from a 6-day WDW visit, which included a split stay....fairly painless if you ask me...

    Did you do room only on both ends or package for either? Dining plan at all?
