My Mom, sister and I are taking my daughter (will be 3) to Walt Disney World 9/19-9/23. We are currently booked at YC, but I see that AKL will be open for our trip. My daughter LOVES animals and the idea of a savanna view room is so appealing. They also show club level available. We had originally selected YC so that we would be close to the parks, especially Epcot for Food and Wine Festival during nap time. I have never stayed at either and have heard great things about both. Any opinions?
My main concerns:
–AKL distance to other parks. The TP resort shows 50 min bus to MK? That might be a deal breaker
–AKL doesn’t appear to have the daybed option and as much as I love my kid, having that octopus in a separate bed may be better for sleeping
–Do I hold out hope that YC has club level back by Sept?
–If we do Club Level at AKL, do you think the extra FP purchase option will be in play?
–Her favorite show is “Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom” on Disney+ so am I being selfish by not just switching to AKL because I want to be by Epcot…
There are so many unknowns and my brain is exploding. Everyone on this site seems so friendly and smart so hoping for some guidance please and thank you!
