I just read it all and LOVED it! I'm from Manitowoc, WI which is only about 45 minutes away My MIL is a postal carrier in Appleton! If you ever need one more person for a trip, let me know! lol... I am going for my 5th trip in December and we'll be at Kidani in a 1 bedroom savannah view for the first time ever... I can't wait! Your pictures really helped me see what the rooms look like (and oh, how I wish we had upgraded to CL!) Maybe next time...

Hi,
I'm really late to the party but really enjoyed the heck out of your trip report! The pictures of your family at WDW were just wonderful. I have older kids too and we will keep taking them to Disney as long as they will go with us!

My favorite picture is the one of you in front of the Muppet fountain. Priceless~

Thanks for sharing. We want to stay at AKL next time we go to WDW.

Thank you following my report!

DD20 is doing GREAT in India! I, on the other hand, am counting down the time until she comes home (11 weeks from today).

Hi neighbor!!!

You will love Kidani. It truly is my favorite of all Disney resorts and a savanna view room is something so unique to AKV and SO amazing!!!

Thanks for reading my report.

Thanks so much for following along.

I agree with you 100%. DH and I keep saying we'll keep taking our kids to Disney as long as they can come. DD20 doesn't always come anymore, but when she does, she is like a kid again and has so much fun. My favorite Disney trips are when all 4 of us can be there together, so this one really was priceless!

Isn't AKV the best? We bought at AKV while on a cruise in 2008 and had never been there before. We are so thrilled with what a great place we got as our home resort!

I as well thank you for the wonderful report and pictures! You have a beautiful and happy family. By this writing, your daughter should be home from India and I'm sure planning her next visit abroad.

I was on the fence about staying at the CL: it is definitely more points, will we be able to take advantage of all (or most of) its offerings, a room is a room is a room, the views, etc. My DH was of no help, he would just say "...whatever you wanna' do, is fine with me". By reading about your experiences, it allowed me to make a more informed decision. We will be staying at CL for 6 nights after our cruise.

We are looking forward to next spring, when we visit WDW again. We are also cruising next June, but on the Dream.
