Default SSR Studio or AKL 1-bedroom Value for one night

I have a choice to make.

I am flying down earlier than the rest of the family for a one week stay at Saratoga in early December.

I can stay in either a 1-bedroom Value at AKL Jambo house or in a standard studio at SSR for that first night.

If I stay at AKL Jambo house, then it is easy for me to have breakfast the next morning at either Mara or Boma and I love both of them. I like a hotel style resort when traveling along, just feel a little safer for some reason. But it is also far from everything else-although I am not sure that really matters in this instance.

If I stay at SSR, then I am already at the resort where we will be for the rest of the week and won't involve much in the way of luggage transfers, etc. I would also be close to all the Disney Springs dining options and I enjoy many of those as well.

Anything else I need to consider in making my decision here?

Yes, if I say at SSR then it will need to be transferred from the studio to the 2-bedroom, unless my wait list for that first night comes thru, which I don't have a lot of faith in.

I vote for AK too. You'll be at SSR all week, why not start the week out with something different? See the animals, hang at the pool, eat at Boma!! Have fun!

Also, the butternut squash soup at Mara, which is the same as what's served at Boma, is awesome!

I love AK. But.... I'd do SSR for ease unless you have a car.

No car this trip--relying on Disney transportation all the way. Car rentals have just gotten ridiculous. I miss the days of $20 per day rentals.
