My name is Amy, and I'm joining in on the new AKL Number Eight thread. Thanks for putting it together. It looks great!

I will be at Jambo House from August 15th-20th with my 8 year old daughter, Eve.

We leave Richmond, VA, for Orlando on August 7th. We will spend a couple of nights at All Star Movies, a few nights at Coronado Springs, and a few nights in a Royal Guest Room at Port Orleans Riverside, before checking in at AKL.

Right now, at AKL, we have 2 nights in a standard view room and 3 nights at club level, but I am thinking about changing the reservation to all 5 nights at club level. What do you all think?

Adding club level each night would cost the two of us about the same as adding the Disney Dining Plan per night.

My first thought was to only do club level for the last three nights, when we will be sticking around the resort a lot more. But it would be nice to have a Savannah View room all five nights. And it's hot in August. It would be nice to stay close to the lounge and the swimming pool.

I am just afraid my daughter won't be able to coax me into the parks at all those last five nights, if we do club level the whole time.

What do you all think?

Hi Amy I'd say if you're already thinking about it, go ahead and take the plunge. Firstly, CL is so wonderful, secondly the savannah view is so nice. There is so much to do at the resort, Eve might just be content to stay as well.

You have quite the resort line up, sounds like a fabulous trip!

I don't know for sure, but from the Christmas specials I've seen I think all the decorations go up the same time.

Good afternoon, Js & Ks!

We got two loads of boxes into the apartment yesterday and the girls are headed up with another load this afternoon. I like the area their complex is in and their apartment reminds me of the one Bob and I started out with 39 years ago! :

Brandi - I know you will be keeping a watchful eye on your Dad to make certain he is fine. You are a good daughter.

Alison - Goodness... Arline surprised everyone, didn't she? I hope all goes well for you all.

neighbor (almost, anyway...)

I would splurge on all five nights if it is in the budget. I bet you and your daughter will find you are happy that you did.

Don't worry, when I got the call Friday night, I was sure it was notification of her passing, but it was that she continued to breathe and opened her eyes.

Welcome Amy! If your daughter enjoys interesting food, I would just do CL for the whole trip. The breakfast was most helpful for us, there was plenty to keep us full well into the afternoon. And we still went into the parks, but it was nice to come back and enjoy the lounge.

I wouldn't mind changing weather with you, sometimes beautiful weather every day can become droll.

Good for you! Moving can always be a pain.

I can only hope that she makes progress like your Bob!

We are doing something similar. I booked 6 nights pool view, and 6 nights CL, in August too. Then I decided to add another CL night, but no availability CL was all booked up. I looked and phoned a few days ago. My CL dates are late Aug, so maybe you'll have better luck.
