    Question DVC Coming to Animal Kingdom Lodge

    Hey all,


    I do not know if this is true or not... but someone has reported on WDWMagic that in today's press event it should be announced that a DVC "wing" or so will be added on the AKL, conversions on the 5th floor, and a new restaurant. I so hope this is true... AKL is the best!

    there is a press event today? will be interesting to see what is announced, I was under the impression they were done with construction for a bit but could have been misinformed.

    Actually... I just heard that the press event isn't until tomorrow... oh well (it's for the opening of EE)... hopefully they'll announce other stuff as well (Nemo show and ride, etc.)

    Interesting news. Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully a couple of our MiceChatters will be able to snag some information if they make it to the event.

    That would be interesting...converting high view rooms to DVC only...I could maybe see a wing but I wouldn't think they'd be changing over any rooms in AKL, it does pretty well as far as filling rooms.

    I didn't like Tarzan at all... but I'd rather have him than Finding Nemo. How easy is it to translate a computer generated animation about FISH to a live stage show?

    Incase nobody knows, AKL has it's own animal reserve right outside your windows, great rooms, great food, and is just the BEST hotel I've even been in, PERIOD.

    I can't wait for this!

    I truly hope and pray -- and I don't pray -- that this isn't true.

    We don't need another deluxe resort RUINED by having timeshares added and the element they often bring (flame suit getting zipped up).

    There are more than enough DVC units on property as is.

    Wait, I forgot, Walt's dream was to build the Timeshare Kingdom of the World.

    I think this is great - AKL is one of the best hotels and having expanded room options makes the hotel even more attractive as a vacation option. I'm guessing the wing will be added as an expansion of one of the trails.

    Farther away from everything, or do you think they would build a new check-in area for them. Because the end of those wings suck to stay in when you have to walk to food, pool, or buses.

    I think what will hapen is an extension of one of the trails with a new check in area dedicated to DVC.This new mini-lobby is where the third resturaunt will be added, and probably a small pool as well. You will be able to walk from the mini-lobby to the main lobby through the room hallways.
