    After a tough year, my boyfriend and I have spontaneously booked WDW for June staying at AKL with DDP. This will be my 7th time to FL, his 2nd. We haven't stayed on property before so how can we make the most of staying at a deluxe resort? Any tips? Thnx!

    Sounds like you need a little pixie dust sprinkled in your life. A get away to Walt Disney World might be the dose of fun and relaxation you need.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is such a unique resort. My family loves the African animals outside your window. Giraffes and zebras just a glance away! In fact we too are staying there in June. The restaurants here are exceptional. Jiko-the Cooking Place would be my top recommendation. This Signature Restaurant requires two Table-Service meal credits. Since you will be there during the Florida summer be sure to take some time to enjoy the beautiful zero entry Uzima pool.

    Staying on property has wonderful advantages. Extra Magic Hours are special extended hours when the theme parks are open only to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to complimentary transportation you may park your car and hop on the buses that run continually to and from the parks and resorts. If you are flying to Orlando the free Magical Express will take from the airport to Walt Disney World. Staying close to the magic will enhance your experience.

    Do make your reservations for your Table-Service meals in advance. Spots in these restaurants book up quickly. Take time to enjoy the resort. View the animals from the Arusha Rock overlook, relax by the pool, and have a beverage in the Cape Town Lounge and Wine Bar. I hope your Walt Disney World vacation is just the magic you need.
