Sorry i missed yesterady, but we just set anchor at AKL and all. Weather so far has been rainy in the afternoon. We arrived quicker than planned so stayed Friday in Buena Vista Palace, across from Downtown Disney. it was nice. Checked in the AKL yesterday...so very nice. Got a free upgrade to a bunkbed room (little scallywags like that). So far it is like Wilderness Lodge, just set in Africa...pretty cool. We hit MK (15 minute bus ride from the lodge) and ate Garden Grill in Epcot (12minute bus ride from the lodge); buses every 20 minutes. Both parks were surprisingly empty. Garden Grill food was good, just glad it was on the dining plan as my bill was $170 for 3 adults and 1 child. More adventures to come...

we loved it when we went last year:yes: altough our bill was $130 for 3 adults and 1 child!!! is that inflation? :unsure: i dont think i would go back, but i would recommend it if you havent been and if you get it on your dining plan thats great. just make sure you book in advance.

you know, I cant remember if we've been at all :lol:

I remember we used to go past it because the lift to the special annual passholders lounge went from there I THINK I remember?

but have we ever eaten there, I'm not sure. I seem to remember we always tried walk up and could never get in

Garden Grill's food was good. Kids were not too impressed...except for the characters of course. For me I like my restaurant to be still, the rotating got on me nerve. I wasn't impressed for the amount of money it ended up being.

Yes, Keith. It is on the way to the old AP lounge. :yes:

Thanks for the review. We've never eaten there, either. Never quite looked too interesting to us. :unsure: Maybe one day.

There is an AP lounge? We've been AP holders for many years and never knew that. What is in it?

:jawdrop:

Wish we would have known about this too prior to our last visit before our pass ran out. :doh2:
