    We are doing 1st visit to WDW in May staying at AKL standard room, savanah view. I would like to have a Arusha view room, 3rd floor. Which is better-the Zebra trail or Kudu trail rooms? R any rooms obstructed by the Arusha rock

    Hi Shelley!  Staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is a wonderful experience.  You will feel like you are on safari in Africa when standing on your balcony or looking out the windows!

    I have a special preference for  the Zebra Trail rooms.  Both will however, offer viewing of the same general savanna area.  We stayed once at the very end of the Zebra Trail and we would probably request something much closer for the next visit.  It is a LONG walk to your room once you get to the Lodge and after a day in the parks it was not what we looked forward to.  Another member of our traveling party stayed in a room about half way and they saw the same animals through-out the day and night as we did and loved their view.

    My favorite part of staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge was to meet so many wonderful African people who would sit and talk about their country and share their experiences.  At night we would often sit on our balcony and enjoy hearing the animals chewing...yes we could hear them chew.... and we felt like we were a million miles away from anything.  It was very peaceful and a relaxing resort to return to after the fast pace of the parks.
