We got home last night from our 7 night stay at WDW. I am sad to see it end, but happy to be home! Not quite a trip report, but here’s some notes -
Our girls are 6 and 2. My husband and I brought them and stayed for 7 nights renting DVC at AKL.
The hotel: Savannah view was great! We had a studio with a queen and a pull out. Perfect for our family of 4. Our room location was good, but some of them were a hike! Lobby was awesome. Pool at Kidani was better for the kids than the pool at Jambo, but we did not have a lot of pool time in the cool temps anyways. The QS restaurant was meh. I was excited to see the different foods at first, but it got old quick. Breakfast was always good, and so were the baked goods.
The food: Boma was good, but overrated. Chef Mickey’s was great as always, but my 2 yr old hated the characters and I had to leave with her after just a few bites. CRT was great! The princesses were so sweet to my girls and the food was good. Hollywood Brown Derby was a pleasant surprise. The burger was really good and my husband was happy with the seafood stew. La Hacienda was super salty. I didn’t even make my kids eat their vegetables. I will never go there again. Tinkerbell’s lime ice cream was a game changer. MOVE OVER DOLE WHIP!
I will never ever bring a 2 yr old again (not that I am planning on having another 2 yr old ever). She was overstimulated, over tired and we only saw a fraction of what we saw a few years ago. There were a few magical moments but a whole lot of not so magical moments.
The crowds were not bad at all! This is our second time going the last week in Jan. We love it for lower crowd levels, but it was chilly this time.
I am still processing the trip but overall it was fun! Planning to go again in 2 years
