    We are coming to Disney September 2009 for our 35th Anniversary. Party of 7(2 grown sons, daughter in law and 2.5 yr old grand daughter). Do you really see animals in the Savannah View rooms. at AKL? Is transportation a pain to MK?

    Hi Ann - congratulations on your 35th anniversary!  I love the Animal Kingdom Lodge, as do my children.  We had a savanna view room the last time we were there, and we saw many animals from our room and deck.  The kids loved just sitting by the sliding doors watching, and their favorites were a family of giraffes, including a little baby giraffe.  I'd definitely recommend getting a savanna view room if at all possible.

    As for transportation, I didn't find it to be a hassle.  While it is a little further from the Magic Kingdom than other resorts, the bus ride didn't feel too long.  Because there is only one bus stop, you'll find that you are on your way to the parks quicker than some of the other resorts that have multiple stops.

    I hope that helps!  Have a wonderful vacation!
