    Hi, we are staying value in Nov but looking at booking 1 night over thanksgiving at AKL (not going to parks for a 2 of days. We are a party of 2 adults/2kids over 10. Would it be worth the extra to upgrade to club level? Thanks

    Hi Donna! Welcome back to planDisney!

    There's nothing better than constantly feeling surrounded by the magic of Disney as you stay in one of the more than 25 Disney Resorts Collection hotels.   Whether you complete your stay in your original Guest room or you choose to upgrade to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge I know you're going to have a fantastic time simply because you never know what kind of pixie dust is sprinkled around every corner when you stay at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Personally, I LOVE doing a "split-stay" where my family spends some time at one Resort and then hops over to another for the end of our vacation. It gives us a taste of more than one Resort's theming, dining locations, and recreational offerings and gives us even more to look forward to toward the end of our stay.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is GORGEOUS, with its majestic lobby, zero-entry pool, and, of course, the sprawling savanna and beautiful creatures that inhabit it.   Since you're planning to spend some time resting and having "Resort" days I think it would be a wonderful choice to upgrade to a Club Level room at a Disney Deluxe Resort.  Club Level Guest rooms provide you with complimentary health club access, concierge services, and (everyone's favorite) access to the Kilimanjaro Club, the Club Level Lounge, which provides bites and refreshments throughout the day.  You'll even find comfortable places to lounge and watch a movie, making it a perfect place for the kids to relax after some busy days at the Theme Parks!

    While you're visiting you'll probably be filling up on the goodies provided in the Kilimanjaro Club.  However, if you're looking for a dinner at sunset that provides you with amazing views of the savanna make sure to grab an Advance Dining Reservation for Sanaa, located right at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village. 

    I'm sure your stay will be magical no matter what you decide to do!
