    Contemporary/Animal Kingdom Lodge Villa Update Photos by Denise 7/5

    Some of them larger:

    This one is at the Animal Kingdom Lodge itself, but you can see how much area isn't currently being used for the Savannah:











    At the Contemporary:

















    The whole area outside the front is getting landscaped:

    Thanks Denise! I bet that Contemporary Tower will look nice with all that glass on it during a Florida sunset with the sun reflecting on it.

    Mike - I agree (I love reflective pics off the main tower, so it will be fun what photo opportunities the new one will offer!)

    the AKL deal should be very interesting. I enjoyed watching the TV show about it on the DVC channel a few weeks ago

    I think the AKL Villas will be beautiful, maybe the nicest of any of the DVC resorts.

    I didn't realize how many units the building held - I don't know the number, but a manager of the AKL said it would make the AKL the largest of any of the Disney resorts. (whether true or not, it will be huge!)

    Great pics, as always. Looks like the animals are not too spooked by all the construction.

    the cool thing about it is it will have its own "main house" unlike the other resorts that where both share a central area. Plus, I am pretty sure it will have its own restaurant

    I only just now see pictures of the Contemporary addition since the ground was cleared.

    Good gravy it's ugly.

    I wish I could agree with that. This tower is ugly and ill-placed. I hate it to say the least. I think it's terrible the WDW management has done this in pursuit of more money. Why not build a new DVC structure that wasn't so high and so close to the main A-Frame tower?

    I see you agree with me on this one.

    That's great to hear, since it's our home resort. (Haven't stayed there yet, however, we'll do just that in January of 09...)
