I need your help finalizing my thoughts. I will be traveling alone with my DD4, and I have narrowed down my resort to the Wilderness Lodge for the following reasons: 1. close proximity to MK 2. close proximity to Fort Wilderness (for the campfire singalong and movies under the stars) 3. boat ride to the Contemporary where we could then take the monorail to other monorail resorts 4. the Electrical Water Pageant sounds interesting The resort theme itself looks interesting, and I love the lodge look, but the pool area does not thrill me and we will be spending a lot of time in the pool. I yearn to stay at the AKL...I love the African theme, the look, the pool area, the animals, the food and wine, etc. Everything appeals to me except night time. There is no beach, no quick connection to a theme park or another resort, and if you want to get back to the MK after coming back to the resort for nap/swim time, I assume it takes a while to wait for the bus again and get back there. I really want to stay at the AKL, but the WL just seems more convenient for a single mom with a four year old. Could anybody sway me back to the AKL, and give me your reasons? I'd love to be swayed, but read so much about how if you have a young child, you should stay close to the MK (neither one of us have been to WDW)! Thanks a bunch, and I look forward to reading your posts!
