I had some time so I thought I would try to start this TR live but from past experience don’t expect me to do too much live. Let me just say that we LOVE AKL and conceirge is wonderful!
Thursday June 7
DH and I worked half days and were home and on the road by 11:45AM. We ate lunch & dinner in the car and were in Orlando by 8:20PM. That includes slow traffic in Jacksonville during rush hour. We stayed at a Hampton Inn for the night. Great uneventful drive, just how we like it!
Friday June 8
We woke early, had breakfast at the Hampton Inn and were at the AKL to check in by 9:15AM. We were met at the drop off by a conceirge staff member who escorted us up to the conceirge lounge for check in. The kids ate a little from the breakfast offerings in the lounge while I checked in. We had booked a bunk bed room but the CM told us he had a 2 queen bed room ready with a better view if we wanted it. So we jumped on the chance. We are on the 4th floor with an Arusha Savanna view. We went in and of course the kids went straight to the balcony. The CM has warned us that this time of the morning the Arusha animals were taken off for a few hours but we did see some Ankole Cattle. We unpacked, changed and headed to the pool.
