Talking It's gonna take a lot to take me away from this view! 7/10 - Finished!

It's gonna take a lot to take me away from this view!

Sing it with me!

"There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do



I bless the rains down in Africa



Gonna take some time to do the things we never have"




It's the tale of 7 wonderful nights at Animal Kingdom Lodge.



A tale of two, celebrating an anniversary.



An early Christmas story filled with surprises.



It happened November 11-18 and the details will come. For now I invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair as the Trip Report board proudly presents;

"It's gonna take a lot to take me away from this view"

I have to agree with you about the view thing. We got a reclassified standard view villa and it was beyond wonderful. The last time I stayed at Kidani I had a true standard view and I was satisfied.

Now, unfortunately, I may never be able to go back to a standard view because that savannah view was beyond great. I just loved it. It was like being on the Safari ride x 10.

Looking forward to your TR.
