animal kingdom lodge rooms

Are the savanna view rooms worth the premium? are the animals easily visable? are they out early enough to view them before heading to breakfast and the parks?

We have more often then not just booked a standard room because 1) not "all" the Animals are viewable from a Savannah View Room 2) we don't spend hours and hours sitting on the balcony anyway 3) you can view many Animals from many other locations at the Resort 4) we would rather spend the money on other things

With that said, we have been upgraded, for free, to a Savannah View Room, more times at the AKL then any other Resort

more AKL info, if interested

I'd get a room with a view if you can swing it. It's one of the cool perks of staying there.

As far as the animals go, the Disney Restort Special on Destination America said the animals are out 22 hour a day. I've seen zebras and giraffes from the pool area when we walked around the resort a few years back.

We always book Savanna Room :-):-)

We have been going to AKL & AKV for years & wouldn't get a standard room, just love sitting on the balcony gazing over the Savanna, with a nice cool "drink" in hand;-);-);-)

I like sitting on the very small balcony first thing in the morning and watching the animals while I have a coffee or two and read the newspaper. The kids also like to see the animals at night. There are different Savannah areas and you cannot see them all from one room.
