At least I won't be tempted to pay for club level again. It was a great thing to do though.

Guess they like poking the DVC grumpy beast. Oh well - they giveth, they taketh away.

Yep - it wasn't a highly advertised perk, but it was listed.

There's still the other backstage thing at Animal Kingdom. This was just for concierge guests at AKL, from what I understand. I probably wouldn't have done it anyway because we generally stay at the Epcot resorts, but it does sound like something that was quite cool.

Didn't they recently added this as a perk that you could book if you're DVC and staying at AKV?

I was planning on to doing this in June 2015. Bummer!

Ah. The construction makes sense. Shame, tho. The Sunrise Safari was prob'ly one of the top 2 Disney experiences we ever had.

Wonder if this is to give them more time for construction in the Safari area for the new night safari.
