Sunday, August 15th we checked into AKL Kidani Village for 10 nights!! That place is absolutely beautiful!! We were on the second floor, about 10 rooms from my inlaws. We were in the wing closest to Jambo House. We sure did get our exercise while staying there-everything was a hike!!!
Upon check in our rooms were not ready, so we headed to Jambo House to check out the pool and to eat, since we were now on the DDP!! For some reason when we checked in, the CM only told us about the Jambo House pool. I kept looking for the waterfall that I had seen in Wishy’s pics, so I figured there had to be another pool. We found it the next day and it was awesome!! I think I may like it more than Storm along Bay!!
After settling into our rooms, we headed back to HS to use another day of GADGAD fastpasses. Once again, we rode TSM 3 times in about 45 minutes. It was then time for our ressie at Mama Melrose, which was a first for us. The food was decent, the waiter a little slow. We were a party of 6, so the 18% gratuity was automatically added. That is fine with me, as long as the waiter/waitress has earned it. I can tell you one thing, we only had one meal the entire time that the waiter deserved his tip. It was very frustrating to pay 18% gratuity at a buffet, or when the service was less than stellar.
We did not have much time, so we rode The Great Movie Ride and the Little Mermaid and called it a night.
Once we were on the bus, my son realized he had left his Hidden Mickey book in MM or on TSM. He was devastated. I went to the front desk and filled out a form and they gave me the number to call Lost and found. I did call, but was on hold for over 45 minutes before I finally hung up!! Frustrating!!!
The photo below was the actual wait time for TSM-160 minutes!! That was the night before it closed!! Thank goodness for fastpasses!!
