    I booked 8 nights at Animal Kingdom Lodge with Savanna View. Now I read that I should ask for Zebra Trail, Arusha Savanna View to get the best view. Is that true and where exactly do I ask about it?

    Hiya Jessica! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited to hear that you've decided on a Disney Resorts hotel for your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort next year! Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a family favorite of ours and has everything you could possibly want for your stay. The theming is one of a kind and the dining options are incredible. From the quick service location to the table service restaurants, there is a wide variety of unique offerings that can only be found at this resort.

    I'm happy you have decided on a room with a Savanna View. Waking up every morning to animals roaming outside of your room is something that will never get old. I remember coming back for a mid-afternoon break from the parks and three giraffes were just a few yards away from our balcony. It was a view that we did not get tired of seeing the entire time during our stay. 

    In regards to your question, I believe you'll be thrilled with any room you get assigned. Each of the savannas located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge has a wide variety of animals to see. With a Savanna View room, you'll have unobstructed views the entire time. However, if you prefer to stay in a specific area of the resort, you can make this request by calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line and speaking to a Cast Member for assistance. Room requests are by no means guaranteed and will only be taken into account when your room is assigned. Cast Members will do their best to try and accommodate every Guest. You can also stop by the front desk of the resort upon your arrival and let them know of your wishes as well.

    Jessica, during your stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge, make sure to stop by The Mara for an order of Zebra Domes. These little treats are delicious and can only be found at this resort!

    Happy planning!
