    There seems to be several different levels for accommodations at AK (value, vac. home studio, one bedroom, etc.) What are all of the different levels? Which offers a view that would afford animal viewing? Thanks? Love the panel!

    Hi Mindy


    Thanks for bringing this question to the panel. We absolutely love answering all your Disney vacation planning questions!


    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge replicates the grand safari lodges of Africa. All rooms have balconies though views vary. Last summer my family stayed in a Deluxe Savannah View Room at the main Lodge. We absolutely loved watching exotic animals, including giraffes, from our balcony and many of the resort's viewing areas. If staying at the main Lodge, I would recommend requesting any odd numbered Savannah View Room on the third or fourth floor of the Zebra Trail overlooking Arusha Savannah.


    The Vacation Club Villas are located on the 5th and 6th floor of the main Lodge, and at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. To learn more about the similarities and differences between accommodations at the main Lodge and Kidani, read HERE. To find out more about accommodations at Kidani Village in particular, read HERE. Please keep in mind room requests are not guaranteed. However, Cast Members will try to accommodate you based on the resort's occupancy rate, and other factors taking place when you arrive on property.


    Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you. Enjoy a most memorable visit to the fabulous Walt Disney World Resort!
