Disney Blitz: Day 3 of 16 Animal Kingdom Lodge Concierge Club Level

Jambo House
Kilimanjaro Club Level 
with Concierge Service
Day 3 of our Disney vacation was especially wonderful. We checked and settled into our 6th floor room at The Animal Kingdom Lodge. Since we have been Disney Vacation Club members since 1997, we are always ready to try something new. This year we made a reservation for the top floor, the Kilimanjaro Club Level with Concierge Service of Jambo House. This is one fine secret hiding within the confines of the Disney property.
The Kilimanjaro Club Level, nestled under the thatched roof on the top floor.
Our specialty treatment began the moment we said we were checking into the Club level. We were taken out of the line and escorted by a Disney hostess up to the 6th floor where there was a private check in desk just for the use of the ten rooms on the top level. 
We were set up with our room and also any reservations we had in mind. We were also reminded of the extra offerings only available on the Concierge Level. We felt so pampered and relaxed that we decided to give up a day at the parks just to take in the atmosphere and perks of the 6th floor, which also has a special elevator key that only allows guests of the ten rooms to use.
Key to the 6th floor.

There are different rooms to choose from out of the ten, but whatever one you choose, you will not be disappointed.
Staying on the Concierge Club Level, you wake up to the newspaper at your door and the scent of breakfast and coffee nearby. Steps from your room you can enjoy a continental breakfast in your personal 6th floor lounge. But, that is not the end of the dining for the day. Something is waiting for you from 7am-10pm. Delicious snacks, samples from Boma and Jinko were served in abundance. We even had the chance to sample some delicious wines imported from Africa. 
Turn down service was provided every night and really added that special touch to the evening. Returning to the room to find chocolates in the form of ostriches and giraffes, a chocolate Animal Kingdom Lodge heart, and mints were just delightful to all the senses. 

You can also enjoy soft robes for your use during your stay, along with other specialties refreshed into your room each day.
The only problem I found with staying on the 6th floor is that you may never want to leave it. The concierge service is top notch and you are always referred to by name. 
If you are looking for a unique Disney experience, I suggest the Kilimanjaro Club Level with Concierge Service.

The IMAX Experience combines crystal-clear images, powerful digital sound and customized theatre geometry to create a uniquely immersive movie experience. The IMAX® theatre at this location has been custom-designed for use in a multiplex theatre. To maximize the field of view in the modified auditorium, the screen was replaced with a larger, slightly curved and specially treated IMAX screen positioned closer to the audience.
IMAX’s digital projection system combines two digital projectors with IMAX’s proprietary image enhancer and custom lenses to create an image with greater clarity, brightness and contrast. The images on screen are complemented by IMAX’s latest sound system, which features its proprietary loudspeaker technology and uncompressed digital sound. This sound system has ten times more dynamic range, cuts down on distortion and provides a sound quality that feels more immersive, especially with the added acoustic paneling that absorbs sound and removes echo.
The addition of IMAX at AMC Clifton Commons 16 continues AMC’s dedication to offering the best and broadest menu of entertainment choices for guests seeking an unparalleled experience. Guests at AMC Clifton Commons 16 will take in the world’s most immersive cinematic experience when CONTAGION: The IMAX Experience opens September 9.

FOX Presents NEW GIRL -Sept. 20, 2011 My Sneak Peek!

New Girl
on FOX
September 20, 2011
The other night I was lucky enough to attend the New York New Girl Party, thanks to BoysRuleOurWorld . It was hosted at the beautiful Hudson Terrace located on the Hudson River, NYC.
New Girl debuts Sept. 20th on Fox network. The lucky attendees to the party did not have to wait. As we sipped on drinks of choice and delicious delicacies, we were treated to a sneak peek of New Girl, starring Zooey Deschanel as Jess Day. Playing an adorable geeky hilarious character who is going through a rough breakup(as we all have at one point or another), she moves in with three male roommates and the fun begins! 
Nick, played by Jake Johnson, Schmidt, played by Max Greenfield and Coach, played by Damon Wayan’s Jr. really sew up the cast into a laugh after laugh comedy. Jess also does have a best friend (what would life be without one) Cece, (Hannah Simone).
The complex, yet simple mix of these five characters had me intrigued with anticipation of what would happen next. This single-camera comedy shot by Liz Meriwether has just the right mix of comedy and compassion to keep us all coming back for more. I personally cannot wait to see what the upcoming season has to bring as we are introduced to New Girl.
