    AKL - Kidani or Jambo?

    I have heard that there now is a counter service breakfast at Sanaa. Has anyone tried this? We booked at Kidani and I am hoping that we like it. Breakfast would really help. We love the Mara but Jambo is booked solid.

    The Marketplace is one of our least favorite places at BC. It is so crowded and CMs are obviously stressed. The layout and options really need a redo. We were walking around this September and went to the new Yacht Club Marketplace. It was fantastic! Healthy food options beautiful layout...

    Walking / Running Shoe For Disney

    How many rooms are available?

    Overall it may mean CMs spend less time on each person. The IT change would be a one time update. More efficient in the long run.

    How many rooms are available?

    Right Ive been told by different CM s in Member Services that they do not know any more than we know. Maybe they just didn't feel like checking. It may not be consistent. However.. It would make a difference to me knowing where I stood on the list just so I could make a general decision...
