    We're planning on staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for my son's first visit to Disney in November. What is the diff between the Savanna and Arushu Savanna views? Would we see more animals with one over the other?

    Mary I am so happy you are bringing your son to Walt Disney World. Seeing a child experience the Magic Kingdom for the first time is a special event for parents. Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort is a good choice. Interesting restaurants, a zero entry pool, and African animals await you. Both the Savannah View and Arusha View rooms look out over safari animals. Both offer the spectacular experience of having live, exotic animals outside your room. There are three separate savannas at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Arusha is the one seen from the main building. The Arusha Rock outside of the lobby has a viewing platform so guests can see this savanna at any time. I think you would be happy with either view. Please contact the Walt Disney World Moms Panel if you have more questions. Enjoy your son's magical first visit.
