    Yeah, that's why we stay there too. I LOVE New Orleans.

    I've stayed at AKL. It's lovely. The restaurants are top notch. I recently had dinner at Jiko and had a great dinner. The appetizers at the bar are super; a sun dried tomato dip and and olive dip. (There was a third, but I can't remember what it was.) Even if you don't get a savanna room, there are plenty of windows in hallways and in common areas to view animals. It is a bit further away from every other park other than AK, but I didn't find that to be a big problem. I think it really comes down to how much you are willing to pay for a room and how much time you expect to be in the resort.

    Why not stay at 2 different ones, i'm guessing its not too hard to have any luggage moved between resorts (but there are people here that would know that a lot better than me)

    ******* UPDATE EVERYONE*******
    Thanks for all of your help... Everyone has been wonderful! We decided to go with the Wilderness Lodge. I was pushing for the Contemp, Poly, or Floridian but Mom would not go for it! We decided that the Wilderness Lodge was a good compromise that I was close to the MK area and it was a delux resort! I hope it does not dissapoint! Thanks again for everything guys... If anyone has any good info on the Wilderness Lodge that they want to add that is not on the message boards, It is always appreciated... Agian, Thanks!!!!! :o)

    I don't think you will be disapointed at all. Another beautiful resort.
