    My family and I will be staying at The Animal Kingdom Lodge in November and are booked to stay in a Savannah view room. I was just wondering if the view is worth the upgrade in price or if we should stay in a standard view room.

    Hi April!  If your budget allows I definitely recommend the Savannah view rooms.  For most guests the true experience of this resort is the ability to watch the many different animals outside of their room's windows or balcony. This is something that is truly unique to the resort and can't be duplicated anywhere else unless you wish to visit Africa and partake in a real safari!

    The only time that this would not be the way to go is if you honestly don't feel you will be spending much time in your room. If you leave early and don't return until late at night then the idea of watching animals is out the window. You can hear them at night but often can't see them!

    For those guests who do not have the Savannah view rooms there is a common area off the main lobby where you can spend time watching the animals. They will often have African cast members sharing stories and information about their country so this is a great place to visit no matter where your room is located!
