    I am staying at AKL Jambo House in a standard view studio villa for the first time. While I know requests are not guaranteed, am I able to request a partial savanna view? What can I expect for a standard view? It was what was available for my travel dates.

    Jambo Brittany!
    Welcome Home and welcome back to planDisney!
    You’re going to love your stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge- Jambo House! I love the theming of the resort and it truly feels like you’re on an African adventure! The lobby is one of my favorites at the Walt Disney World Resort and having a Standard View room would be the least of my worries, it truly is an amazing resort. 
    When staying in a Standard View room, you can expect to get a parking lot, pool, or landscape or partial savanna views from your balcony. I’d recommend asking for a high floor, partial savanna view room. You can do this by calling Member Services and they will be happy to put in your request. This would also be a good time to let them know if you are celebrating anything on your trip like a birthday or anniversary. As you mentioned, requests are not guaranteed but Cast Members will work very hard to accommodate all requests.
    Even if you don’t get a partial Savanna view room, the savanna views from the resort at both Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge- Jambo House and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge-Kidani Village are spectacular! You can always come down to the lobby or take the in-resort shuttle to the Kidani Village section to relax and hang out with the animals. 
    Well Brittany, if you need anything else before your next trip please come back and let us know how we can help.
    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
