I don’t believe at this point you can take advantage of both specials. In the past, we were lucky enough to include a room discount (not 40% though) and the DDP but for the time of year (November) that we’re going there are no DDP discounts. They have done the math…also depending on if you have table service or not, the gratuity is no longer included and needs to be figured in your calculations too.
We’ve been going for years at all level of resorts, trying every hint given to get on the mailing lists (whatever list it may be) to get a discount code and this is the first year we’ve ever received one. Then I have heard of people that get them every year…I don’t think anyone really knows the rhyme or reason to getting the code…oh bother!
Savannah view…means the animals are just outside your balcony! I mean right there, up close, and personal. I don’t know about all the rooms but the times we have stayed there with a savannah view there was always a lot of animal activity to watch.
In the beginning, we weren’t room dwellers either but over the years we have begun to slow down and appreciate being on vacation. With the kido’s (and adults LOL) we would be up and at the gate the moment the gates opened and wouldn’t leave until the street cleaner pushed us out. Now, especially when it’s just us adults, we slow down a little bit and take time to enjoy the amenities of the resort a little more. If you anticipate keeping the same pace as you do without your kids then you’ll probably be just as happy at any resort as the next. POFQ is pretty nice too…but I could be a little prejudice since it’s almost my backyard.
