I noticed the Kings Land points chart lists two values for some room categories. Can anybody tell me what the meaning of that is? For example, 7 nights in a 2 bedroom unit in platinum season is listed as 7,000 / 10,500.

(looks like you have to click on the points chart link from the above link).

Read Accommodations below the points chart. It says points very depending on floorplan and view.

It's Phase 1 vs Phase 2

See this old thread regarding Kings Land Phase 1 vs Phase 2 - http://tugbbs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=173030&highlight=kingsland

Here are my photos from my two bedroom 2013 stay in Phase 1 - https://www.flickr.com/photos/40089311@N05/sets/72157634257790374/with/9102904779/

Thanks. That was helpful. We just got back from our first stay there (at any HGVC resort actually) and came away very impressed. We were in a 2 BR plus unit in building 4. Those phase 2 units look much less inviting than the unit we were in.

Strongly disagree. We've stayed in both and not only is Phase 2 (in a 2-bedroom, not a 1-bedroom) just as good as Phase 1, I'd say it's better because you're paying 7,000 points instead of 10,500 and you're guaranteed to be a manageable distance from the pool. You may be closer to the main area of the pool and the restaurant in Phase 1..........but you also may be much farther.

Here is the review I wrote comparing Phase 1 vs. Phase 2. As I said, the point differential is significant in my mind.

That's a good review, I'd missed it before and happy to read your analysis. The proximity to the pool is indeed interesting, and for the reasons that you mentioned, the ground floor in Phase 1 (or Phase 2) I consider a positive when there isn't an ocean to see.

I haven't stayed in Phase 2 and will be curious to see how the size of the unit lives. We are a family of 5 and Phase 2 looks alot like Aulani -- which was adequate from a space perspective, but definitely "cozy".

Thanks again for your comments!

Best,

Greg

I agree. I've been in a one-bedroom in both phases, and I'd rather have more nights for the points. The differences are not worth 50% more points to me. But other people value slightly larger units, cushions on the lanai furniture, and soaking tubs, which makes it easier for people like me to get the lower-point units.

I wrote a review of phase 1 unit, then a second review comparing phase 2:

Here is a nice aerial photo of the property. Phase 2 is the 2 buildings that form a "V" and are at 11 o'clock from the main pool area you can see towards the bottom right of the property. You can see that the buildings at each end of Phase 1 are much farther away from the main pool/restaurant area then the 2 buildings in Phase 2.

PS - Phase 3 is shown as the dark rectangle at 12 o'clock from the main pool area. Talk about a hike back to the center of the resort.

I'd say as long as 2 of your 3 kids can share a bed in the 2nd bedroom then you will be fine. In the 2nd bedroom there are 2 double/full beds which are big enough for 2 smallish kids.

If you're expecting your 3 kids (or the 3 people not staying in the master) to each have their own bed then you're using the sofa sleeper in the living room and that will indeed add to the clutter and make things cramped at the beginning/end of each day.

The 2nd bathroom is a good size and 3 people sharing that shouldn't be an issue. The eating area is large with a bench seat around half the table and 3 or 4 chairs around the other half. You also have a large couch and on the lanai a table that seats 4.

I wouldn't hesitate having 5 people (2 or 3 adults and 2 or 3 kids) in one of those units. To have 5 adults in one of them would be tight.

Love phase 2 for the points. Family of 5 had plenty of room with the two bedroom.
