Question for all you experienced WDW Hotel Guests...I can change my room for only a couple hundred more from the Conrado Springs to the Animal kingdom Lodge..What are your thoughts? Pros and cons? Thanks and when I am out there I will be doing a few in park RAKS

Do it! We love Coronado, but AKL is so awesome, there are lots of activities at the lodge, so make time for those. When are you going? - DizneyGirl  1096.6 #8 5:29PM
Do it!! Nothing beats AKL IMO!! :) - mrsincredible  1346.9 #4 5:31PM
Do it! But only if you can get a savannah view, AKL is amazing! It's my favorite resort ad it's so cool how you can see the animals outside your room! Pros: it's a beautiful place and has so much to do there. Cons: Nothing! There's nothing bad about it! - nodell111  166.4 #55 5:34PM
AKL for sure..go for it.lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:36PM
I've never stayed at Coronado Springs but AKL is definitely an upgrade and the dining is excellent! Like the others said, it's full of activities plus it's one of the most beautiful resorts! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #25 5:38PM
I would for sure do it! I love Coronado Springs resort, BUT if you have the chance to upgrade to AKL for just a couple of hundred dollars, do it. It looks like a wonderful resort! Very nice, and pretty. I mean, why not upgrade if you can? You know? DO IT! :] - DesiBelle9  25.5 #151 5:45PM
Thanks guys, I called back and made the change...was just 200 more for 5 nights - Dave  13820.5 #4 6:13PM
I definately would do that.:) - ally  509.0 #18 6:20PM
Reserve at Boma if you've never tried that buffet before! It's awesome! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #25 6:27PM
Yes you have to go to Boma it's amazing! - nodell111  166.4 #55 6:44PM
I would do it !!! The difference of a moderate to a deluxe is unbelievable !!! You won't regret it !!!!!!! - skcanfield  589.2 #14 6:15PM
Sweet....I stayed at the voontemp before but it was 13 years ago - Dave   13820.5 #4 6:36PM
Yay do it. My home resort is AKL I love it. - yessy  267.7 #34 6:27PM
Def do it akl is a one of a kind , I always say its an attraction itself , so beautiful if you can get a savanna view do it but if not there is still a lot of viewing areas , but I love just walking out on the balcony and seeing animals , makes you forget where you really are , the rooms are pretty cool too and has great dining options :) - tracsant  1519.7 #2 6:34PM
I so agree with tracsant.. just came from there and being my first time there it was an amazing time glad u change:) - Disneymom36  62.4 #99 6:39PM
Room I got was a standard...so there are still other places too see the animals? Looks like my day on Saturday and at bomma for dinner might just have to bee a AK and hotel only day, no park hoping - Dave   13820.5 #4 6:41PM
Yes there are other places to see the animals, there is an entrance off the lobby to the viewing area, either way Akl is great no matter what view - nodell111  166.4 #55 6:45PM
The first time we stayed there we just stayed in and enjoyed the resort it's just so beautiful you will def be happy to experience it and they have wonderful viewing areas throughout the resort we have stayed at both jambo and kidani and were not disappointed , hope you have a great time:) - tracsant  1519.7 #2 8:12PM
We are staying there this year because of the many great reviews. So go for it - 5disneylovers  1242.6 #7 6:58PM
Pros: It's the AKL! Amazing resort, savanah, Boma! Cons: It's in the middle of nowhere. Realize that your travel time to everything except AK is going to be longer. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1457.0 #3 8:13PM
