Disney Vacation Club to expand to Animal Kingdom Lodge

The Disney Vacation Club announced on October 11, 2006 that the Animal Kingdom Lodge would be the home of the next DVC resort at Walt Disney World. Rumors have been circulating for some time that the Contemporary was next on the list, but in recent weeks the focus had shifted to Animal Kingdom Lodge.

The first phase will be the opening of 134 remodeled existing rooms at the resort in late 2007. The next phase will be the opening of a new building containing 324 villas.

There is an official update on the DAK DVC suites:

Disney ends time share's first phase
Sara K. Clarke | Jason Garcia and Scott Powers, Sentinel Staff Writers
February 18, 2008

The first phase of Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom Villas time share is complete.

Disney last month wrapped up work on the last of 109 units that have been converted from hotel rooms to time shares on the upper levels of the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Construction is continuing on the project's much-larger second phase: A 340-unit annex next to the lodge that has been dubbed "Kidani Village." Disney says the expansion will include a 120-seat sit-down restaurant, a 4,700-square-foot swimming pool with a water slide and two spas, plus tennis, shuffleboard and half-court basketball, among other amenities.

Disney expects to complete the second phase during the spring of 2009.

The Animal Kingdom Villas are Disney's eighth time share and the sixth at Disney World. The company is in the midst of building new time shares at Disneyland in Southern California and has announced plans to develop a time share and hotel resort in Hawaii. Construction records also suggest Disney is building a time-share addition to the Contemporary Resort in Orlando, though the company has not confirmed the project.

So the conversion phase is completed, but the new building phase is still going on....

We went during Mardi Gras. (The first week of February) We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge this year. I am a DVC member. Talk about a hike! And that was just to our room.

We stayed in a 2 Bedroom at AKV and loved it. It was plenty of room for the 5 of us. Ok, the walk to the room was a little far, but the Boardwalk is far worse. But aside from that, it's a great resort!

We're staying here in Septober...we stayed at AK our first trip (pre-DVC membership).

I hope it's nice...our AK room seemed very small...and we have more of us this time around!

We'll definitely rent an auto....waiting in line for the busses here was pretty atrocious before.


Any hints or tips from those of you who've stayed recently???
