Default A nice dvc story

Last August 17 I had a double knee replacement surgery. The surgery went well and I decided to do a Disney trip after two months to further my rehab. Swimming and hot tubs are supposed to be good for a knee replacement surgery.

I booked 9 days starting October 16 but I could only get Animal kingdom for the first two days followed by Old Key West for 5 days followed by 2 days at Saratoga springs. To my surprise I was able to get Animal kingdom lodge for the 5 days I was supposed to be at Old key west so its animal kingdom lodge for 7 nights and Saratoga for the final 2 days. Having still recovering from knee replacement I did not want climb stairs at old key west . Anyways all I can say is keep looking and you may get what you want . I'm looking forward to further rehabbing my knee and hoping when I come home I hope to be back to normal as far as my knees are concerned

Glad to hear it worked out! And right now people are still cancelling last minute so you never know these days!

Good vibes for room selection
As FYI when we stay at OKW we always ask for ground floor since DH is in a scooter and we have always been accommodated.

Enjoy Animal Kingdom. Love, love, love it there. Good luck with your rehab.

It's not in clinical trials yet, but zebra domes are known to improve overall health.

With The Mara closed, you can buy them at the Kidani store.
