Just out of curiosity, why is AKL the least favorite of all the deluxe resorts? The reason that I ask is over the past few years, I’ve noticed that many MBers tend to “pass” on AKL. Is it because you’re either a “monorail route” person or a “walking distance to EPCOT” person or is it something else? Why would you never give it a shot or if you have, why would you not go back?
We went to check out the AKL this past Sunday and all I can say is WOW! The Jambo House is spectacular! :ohmy:
It completely blows away anything I’ve see at all of the other resorts.
And the savannah is fantastic as well! I bet the rooms overlooking the savannah are something else… And the resort itself is amazing, with all of the little “nooks and crannies”, the art, the décor, the restaurants, even the humble pool, this place is awesome.
And as far as the drive is concerned, we clocked an extra 2 min and 23 seconds to the EPCOT exit (before the MK toll booth) compared to a drive from CBR as well as the PO resorts (I know they’re MOD’s, not deluxes so its apples and oranges) so the drive is not insane.
Plus, I just priced a room in the high season (July) and w/ the 30% passholder discount, the rooms are $266 a night… Not too bad!
I can see us staying here for a weekend and not even hitting a park. There is so much to do at the AKL, as well as all of the activities that they offer, that you really wouldn’t need to hit a park (I know, blasphemy lol :eek: But we go all the time…).
So whats your reason for not liking this resort or for the lack of interest?
