[QUOTE=Dana;890719]Like llama said, the preferred thing is totally new. I wouldn’t worry about getting that either if it meant spending more points unless you have them to burn. An aspect I forgot to showcase in my comments is the EXCELLENT service at that resort. It was a rare thing for me to walk by any CM there without being greeted with a “good morning”, “have a magical day” or something of the like. I was treated so well in the gift shop that I actually stopped by to say goodbye to one of the CM who was on a mission to help my DD find a pin she was on the hunt for. From the landscapers to the housekeeping CMs, every single person I encountered at that resort was my ideal CM. To me that is enough to bring me back again if the awesome rooms, tranquil setting and DTD access isn’t.
I like laid back and casual…this resort is that ,but done well. I don’t feel at home in shmancy fancy surroundings…I want to flop on the bed and not worry about mussing up the place…seriously, it’s the only place I would even consider renting points at again. Did I mention that it’s the only DVC studio that has two REAL beds and not one of those pull-out nighmares as the second bed? Who wants to sleep on that thing for 7 nights? Not me or DD that’s for sure.
I am sure that you will make the right decision for you. I can’t wait to see what you decide.[/QUOTE]
I like the laid back settings too, especially after the sensory overload at the parks! So when we went through OKW on Magical Express before getting dropped off at SSR, it definitely caught my eye. Then when I looked at the floor plans, I was like WOW! You get alot of space here.
Anyway, my 09 trips were pretty much laid out: Feb at SSR (on developers points) and August at my home resort AKV (although at Jambo house not Kidani Village). I’m thinking 2010 will be OKW and AKV (hopefully at Kidani Village with a savanna view).
