I would like to be near the lobby
Thanks!!!!!!: Grouphug:
Olympia, you are going to be thrilled with AKL! There is only one pool, but it is huge, with a zero entry side and a slide. Also a kiddie pool, and two very nicely secluded hot tubs. The pool view views also make you close to the lobby area. Be sure to have a Zebra Dome - best dessert at WDW. You can get them at Boma (buffet restaurant) or even in the cases at Mara (food court). Have a great trip! jane

Seeing these pictures of AKL just adds to the anticipation!
We have stayed at the CR, YC, and ASMmu before but have never even visited AKL , so are really looking forward to our trip in July.

Stopped by AKL last week for dinner while up at Disney on a conference, and always love to get some pics around one of my favorite hotels.

The lobby, using in-camera HDR for a little contrast control with the bright light outside:


The bar - also needing some HDR with the superbright windows behind:


Lobby, looking the other way:


My favorite room, the sunset room...massive HDR needed to save this one - in-camera HDR at 6 stops:


And my favorite restaurant, where I had dinner...Jiko:

There is one at Jambo House and one at Kidani Village. When we were at Jambo House last year we were able to go use the Kidani pool. It had a fun slide but honestly, I liked the Jambo pool better
