    Hi All

    We have justb returned from 2 weeks in the animal kingdom lodge,

    We had the best time, we stayed in a club room on the forth floor, with a zebra trail view,
    OMG it was beautiful, the hotel was out of this world, staff really friendly, animal were great and nearly always in view from the balcany.

    the 6th floor concierge level was really handy, we had breakfast in there most days and we popped in and out throughout the day, for coffee and snacks,

    we had out 3 year old son with us so when he got tried in the parks we would jump on a bus and go back to the hotel,

    the busses run very often, i think we only waited for 1 and even then it was only abou 10 -15 mins.

    the 14 day pass was really good it ment tat we diddnt need to cram everything into one day, we just waited til we was ready and headed to the parks,

    In the parks the crouds were very light, again we diddnt really que for much and even then it was for a max of 10 mins.

    now we have been home 48hrs, we have started planning our next trip,
    2013 disney stay and cruise, cant wait.

    We really like AK too. We love Kidani Village. :yes: It's an experience in itself, that resort.

    Last time we were there with the boy, he asked to come out of the park and return to the resort. He loved the swimming pool area of Kidani. :yes: He liked the zero entry at AKL too, but Kidani was more involved and he really enjoyed himself.
