We arrived at MCO about a half hour late but were quickly out of the National Emerald Aisle and on our way to Publixs and then Kidani. We arrived at Kidani about 2:00pm, so I was hopefully that our unit might be ready it wasnt. No matter, we gave a couple of bags of fridge groceries to bell services and went down to the bus stop to catch a bus to Epcot and the MMM. We arrived at Epcot and were pleasantly surprised to see that AKV now has the coveted bus stop number 6 there that once was OKWs. LOVE how close our stop is to the gate. We hurry through to guest services and exchange our vouchers for APs and get our TIW card. We arrived at MMM site at about 3:30, and the joint was already jumping! We got our gingerbread men and cider and started perusing the room for familiar faces. We spoke with several new friends, and after eating a gingerbread man, decided that it was time for a real meal, since our last food was the oatmeal we had at home at 5:00 AM. More on the mixer later. We headed up toward the rest of WS and decided we had time to take in the last Voices of Liberty show of the day before looking for sustenance. It was a wonderful show as usual, and then we headed to Teppan Edo and even without reservations were seated almost immediately. This is our favorite Epcot eatery, and didnt disappoint. Well, except for the fact that the value goes down a bit each year and the menu gets tightened each year, but still good food. Then we hit the CP stand by line just as it was starting to proceed into the theatre. We were thrilled to score good seats fairly close to the stage and enjoyed another wonderful show. By the time we got out of CP, it was time to go meet John at the Owners Locker wine night. This is always a great visit with people who are of the same mind, and we enjoyed our visit there followed by Illuminations. The wonderful weather helped this to be a most enjoyable night, but it was getting late and we have Wild Africa Trek scheduled tomorrow, so time to hit the hay. We have received our text about 4:30 telling us our room was ready, but with all the fun we were having at Epcot, we decided to wait until later to experience our unit and unpack. Let me just say here that we have been members at AKV ever since they first gave us a chance to buy in there. This is our 6th AKV stay, and with the exception of the wonderment of having the animals right outside your door and the comfy beds, I must say that very little else about the place makes me happy. Sure it has wonderful décor, but if the unit doesnt work well or isnt prepared well or doesnt have good services ..well Id just say it lacks some basics. This is our 6th AKV stay, but only our second at Kidani Village. We have had two stays in Concierge Club level in the past, plus two other Jambo house visits. Last time we were at Kidani, it was only for a couple of nights in a studio, and we were on the very end of the last bead, and walking to the lobby was an adventure and a PITA. We felt like we could walk to Jambos lobby quicker than we could to Kidanis. So This time I requested close to the lobby. Great, I am informed at check in that we had our request met and that we would be in 76?? (number to be determined once the unit was ready). Okay, 2nd floor and one bead away from the lobby GREAT!
