    Hi moms. Staying at the AKL in July. Can I get a microwave for my room? Also I'm traveling with my extended family. How can I make sure we get connecting rooms because of small children? Thanks.

    Hi Raymond,

    How awesome that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort with your extended family. My first tip for you is to plan for some magical time together like a character breakfast and a fun dinner, but also for some immediate family time. In any case, I'm sure you'll have a blast.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge lets you step right into the heart of Africa and experience amazing views of savannas full of animals and birds. The Resort offers from Standard View rooms that can accommodate up to four adults, all the way to eight adults, in a 2 Bedroom Suite - Club Level Access. Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village can accommodate up to nine adults in a 2 Bedroom Villa, available in a Standard or Savanna View.

    Although you want to make sure all your family's accounts are connected (visit the Family & Friends page) in order to plan activities and FastPass+, in order to request connecting rooms, you should call a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, or have your travel agent make the request. Be sure to provide all the reservations numbers, and although there's no guarantee, every effort will be made to satisfy your request.

    Regarding microwave ovens, a limited supply is available upon request for standard rooms. Make sure you contact the number I provided above (or have your travel agent place the request) and hopefully they'll be able to accommodate you. Suites and Villas do have them available, otherwise, you will find one for you to use at The Mara food court.

    See you real soon!
