I am heading to AKL on 8/5-8/11 after 2 nights at All Stars Music. I had trouble finding a AKL thread but glad to find you all. I am so excited, AKL has been my dream resort. We had not planned to return to WDW this year but got some pixie dust and here we are! thanks everyone for great info.

Glad you found us! Congrats on your upcoming trip and that you will be at AKL!!! Have a wonderful time!

We'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Morning/afternoon everyone, I hope that today brings a better day to everyone whom has lost someone this week. I am sorry for your losses.

Today is a good day I get to talk to DD today. I am super duper excited. Today is also one week until I am half way through my tour in Afghanistan, and closer to Disney world.

Looking over the dates I do not think that I ever gave you my dates that I will be in disney world, I will be club level from Jan. 7th to the 13th.

Brandi and Alison- I'm so very sorry for your losses this week. Please let me know if I can do anything. It's so tough to lose someone we love.

I know, I must be better about not disappearing for weeks at a time. Although no promises for the next couple of weeks at least.

.
so I'm guessing you are assigned a time you get to contact home? How often? That would probably frustrate me to no end.

Hi! Super excited cause just got my ME for August! .
We are looking forward to our first stay at AKL!
We aren't staying CL though. What other fun things do they have for us to do besides watching animals?
So far I know we've gotta try zebra domes -they sound yum!
Any other suggestions?

Thanks for the welcome.
I am curious about activities at the resort. Seems like there are many fun things to do. I want to be sure to make time. Does the resort have a list when I check in?

Also, confused about pools- the pool by AKL Jambo has the shorter slide in bigger pool? The Villas pool is smaller with longer slide and water play area? Is this correct. How long walk between those?

I am requesting a 3/4 floor room in Giraffe trail (we have pool view) so I am closer to buses as well as poo. I know I wont see animals on way to room but aside, is this req. ok? Is there a better suggestion before I do that? Zebra looks far and we will come from park to room, change, to pool, back to room, change and bus/parks evening.
