Agreed. Altough we also did enjoy our OKW trip & were excited to go again this upcoming June(Trip Cancelled) and the vibe and stuff are so overwhelmingly relaxing here, but as the OP stated during Chirstmas(the decorations and stuff are too hard to pass up. I have a 1 day Kidani added on before our Oct/Nov SSr trip, so that'll just be a Travelday/Resort day with the fam...Looking forward to it for sure!!Ironically those are the 2 resorts we have stayed at with DS and his family, including our 2 DGDs. Surprisingly, they all agreed that they preferred OKW. After watching the animals for the first couple days at Kidani, they missed the big porch where the whole family could sit outside at OKW. Also, they preferred the casual stroll outside to the bus stop at OKW to the long walk down the hallway at Kidani.
I think you'll be very happy with OKW. No matter which resort you stay in, once you're in your room you see any decorations anyway.Thank you all for your suggestions. We were able to book at OKW. AKL did not have availability for the room type we wanted. Hopefully we will get to stay at AKL one day.
