    Anyone know anything about the rooms at Magic Kingdom where giraffes came come up to your balcony? Is that real? If yes, how hard to get and how absurd is the price? My parents aren't going to be able in October so now it's just us so I can go a little crazy lol.

    Animal Kingdom Lodge. Many regard it as the best place to stay. Again, if staying at AK Losge, Poly, or GF, 100% rent vacation club points, but do it soon if you can (if there is availability in any of them).

    We have been to AK lodge a few times, it’s a nice resort. Gotta get the safari balcony rooms....

    Explain renting points to me like I'm 5. I get the concept, just how does it work. I assume the buying the points is easy but how do I then use them?

    We'll be checking out of poly that day -- excited to try them out before we leave!

    I'll report back on if it's a florida heat box lightning storm terror ride or if it's cool and enjoyable. Kinda seems like it could go either way.

    I don't understand the decision to build new transportation that does not include a/c. But maybe it's high enough up and generates it's own breeze, or something.

    Just seems like it's one 5 year old's spilled water bottle away from being a legit steam room.

    I suppose that'll depend on any future heat stroke related lawsuits.

    I have to believe Disney just gets attacked with that shit all day long as it is.

    Me: Mickey better cook, serve it, and sit down and chill. Sheesh. $28 for eggs, bacon, and sausage lol

    Wife: Oh no, we’re doing dinner there. But yeah, it’s a little pricey but it’s our princess’ birthday.

    Me: She likes fish sticks.

    It's whatever. I was just busting my wife's chops. If it makes my wife happy and they make my daughter smile, they can have all my money.

    That's the right expectation. A lot of people think its the best inside the park, but... that's not saying a whole lot imo.

    It's a cool experience though, they did a great job with it.

    Wife and kids ate inside cinderella's castle a couple of weeks ago, I sat it out because I really don't care. It was a bucket list item for my wife so I let my MIL take my seat.

    So much this.

    Epcot is by far the best park to eat at for obvious reasons.

    Animal Kingdom has some interesting sit down options, but the quick service is really good so I usually stick with that.

    But Magic Kingdom and MGM/Hollywood Studios have some really terrible sit down options. Be Our Guest is the only one I would eat at. The rest, MEH.

    (never done the castle because I don't have a sister or daughter.)

    When you go, just say you ended up with an extra person or 2. 99/100 times they will accommodate you.

    Morocco in Epcot FTW (but really, just about everything in Epcot except for maybe china imo)

    Yak and yeti at AK, sci fi drive in at Hollywood. In MK it's kinda a wash. Be our Guest was cool to do but I'd personally just save the coin and get a run-of-the-mill burger at Cosmic Ray's.

    Ate lunch at the castle for my daughter's 1st trip, spent the whole night puking. Fish. Started right before dinner at the Floridian, left my fam and walked back to the Polynesian screaming at the ground the entire way.

    It’s happening. Taking daughter for her 6th birthday in October. I’ve never been.

    Do I read the entire thread and then ask questions, or just shoot from the hip?
