    Booked 2 nights at AKL savanna view. Does the standard savanna, which says "view of one of the savanna's", include the Arusha? I see  they charge more for those rooms but no option for Arusha view when booking.

    Jambo Leslie!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my personal favorite hotels on Walt Disney World property and I'll actually be leaving tomorrow for a quick stay there!

    I believe the room you are talking about at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is the Savanna View with Club Level Access. This room, under the Rates & Room Types, specifically calls out that the Guest will be staying with a view of Arusha Savanna. If this is not showing up as an option for you, it likely means that it is sold out for your desired dates. If you are booking a Standard Savanna View room, this could still potentially be a room with an Arusha view. You can put in your reservation that you would like to request a room with an Arusha view, and the Cast Member that checks you in will do the best they can to accommodate your request, but it is not guaranteed. You would not book a room for a specific savanna outside of the Savanna View with Club Level Access. When booking the Standard Savanna View you will not see a specific booking option for which savanna. After you book online please call the Disney Reservation Center at 407-560-CHAT to add the request in. I hope this helps clear things up for you.

    I'm sending pixie dust your way for a wondEARful trip and please let us know if you have any other questions!
