    Smile Introduction

    We are the Miller family from Columbus, OH. We "pulled the trigger" on a DVC resale the Sunday before Thanksgiving. We have been very impressed with the resale company, DVC Resale Market. Our offer was accepted within minutes of sending it, and the paperwork process has been very straightforward. Unfortunately, Disney discovered that there was an existing reservation on the account which will hold up our closing date for another 6 weeks, but the sellers offered us a $100 credit to offset the inconvenience and we accepted it. We passed ROFR just short of two weeks into the process. We were amazed that it happened so quickly, especially considering there was a holiday thrown into that mix. We will be closing on points at Animal Kingdom sometime at the end of March. We are very excited about this new adventure and cannot wait to use it for the first time next October!!

    Congratulations! I expect March seems so far away, but you will have years of DVC vacation in your future.

    Welcome to the DVC News. I am looking forward to seeing you around the forum.

    Welcome! I love Animal Kingdom Villas. Have you been to both Jambo and Kidani? If so, which do you prefer? I love the butternut squash soup, as well as the cupcakes and zebra domes, in Mara, which is part of the reason why I like Jambo.

    Congratulations and welcome to DVC! We also own at Animal Kingdom and love the ability to book at either Kidani or Jambo house, as well as being lucky to have DVC rooms on club level at Jambo. Hope you enjoy your years of membership!

    Just a quick question from the newbies. How difficult is it to book the Club level rooms? Do they usually fill early in the 11 month window? We won't be able to book our October trip until we get the final info from Disney after we close which means it will probably be April. Am I safe to assume that the club level rooms will all be reserved by then?

    There are only 10 rooms in club level, made up of 5 two bedroom lock offs, so at best, 5 Deluxe studios and 5 one bedrooms are available. So availability is very limited and you will need to book at 11 months out.

    For us us we managed a 4 night stay at club level as part of a 16 night stay and my recommendation is to use the stay as downtime and make as much use as you can of the facilities, when you get to stay there.

    It is a fantastic option, if a little pricey on points! But we loved our stay and we got treated very very well and all the cast members were always brilliant.

    other thought is that half the rooms half savannah view and the other is pool view. Unfortunately you can not specify this option and it is luck of the draw as to which you get.

    Hope that helps

    Default Introduction

    Congratulations on your purchase at AKL! It was one of the best decisions my DH and I made when we bought our first DVC back in 2013. I only wish we could have done it years before because we've been going to WDW together since 1982!
