Stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge for the first time during our HHN opening weekend so here are a few pics from there. Got a lot more to go thru and post over when time permits.

^ I want to return to the Polynesian, if I can afford it by the time I go.
We were there in 1987, and spent several wonderful nights onsite.

If you guys are looking to stay onsite check out renting DVC points from a member. Can save you a ton of money in the long run. Example, early 2013 we rented points form a member for 4 nights at Boardwalk and it turned out to cost me about $160 a night compared to over $300 a night if you book direct with Disney.

I've gone pantless!

I spent a few days at the Animal Kingdom Lodge back when it first opened and thought it was great. The restaurants are excellent, too.
