    We have booked a Walt Disney Package for July 11 thru July 15 with the Animal Kingdom Delux Villa with the Savannah view we paid extra for the view we have a Party of 5 adults and 2 little girls 5 and 7 will we get view of animals outside balcony

    Hi Lynda

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge is my favorite family resort. It has a rich and detailed theme, a ton of activities, a great pool, and those unique and awesome savannas.

    Yes, if you booked a savanna view, you will see animals only a few feet away from your balcony. There are several savannas spread out along both Animal Kingdom Lodge properties, Jambo House and Kidani Village. When you check in, ask for copies of the Wildlife Field Guide, enough for each party member. The field guide is a fun way to learn about the resort's animals. The guide will provide not only a listing of the animals roaming the resort's savannas, but will also provide animal identification pointers, behavioral tips, and check boxes to record any animals you spot. Think of it as a great big Disney scavenger hunt around the resort.

    Although the animals may be subject to change, our family spotted the following animals from our balcony on our last trip: Ankole Cattle (look for one walking a bit lopsided, as if one horn is heavier than the other horn), Zebra, Okapi, Roan Antelope, Greater Kudu, Impala, Nyala, Giraffe, and ostriches.

    Enjoy your vacation.
