    I have a Savannah room booked, does that guarantee either side (Pembe or Sunset) or do you still need to request? Also, is ground floor better than high floor?

    Hi Amy!

    You are going to be thrilled with your Savanna View Villa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village! There is just nothing in the World that can compare to sipping your delicious Joffrey's Coffee & Company French Bistro Blend coffee from your large, private balcony, just feet from such exotic animals. You must be so excited!

    When you complete your Online Check-In, you will have the opportunity to request either the Pembe or Sunset Savanna side of the Resort in addition to other preferences. Of course, while Cast Members love to satisfy Members and Guests, requests are not guaranteed.

    It is an individual preference, but I normally request a high floor at this particular Disney Vacation Club Resort. I prefer to be slightly further away from my new feathered and hoofed friends in favor of a chance to see a greater area. The only potential downside to this request strategy is that particular Villas can have a slightly obstructed view thanks to large tree branches near to the balcony. 

    I hope this helps, Amy! Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
