    Hi moms pleased to meet the new panel. we are going to be staying at AKL for W&D marathon weekend and are looking for places to eat after the runs where would you recommend that is not too far away? Also any tips for AKL first time staying here thanks

    Hi Amy,

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
    is a wonderful place to spend a vacation! My daughter loves it there and would never leave the resort if she had her way. Check out the animals at night by the fire pit.

    This resort has some fabulous restaurants on-site if you do not want to travel. Jiko-the Cooking Place is a personal favorite. There is also Boma-Flavors of Africa and Sanaa which are delicious as well.

    You can also head to Disney Springs to dine if you are not planning to go into a theme park. Bongos Cuban Café and Raglan Road are good options as well as Morimoto Asia, Wolfgang Puck and Chef Art Smith's Homecoming.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
