    If staying at Animal Kingdom, how can I request a specific savannah view. Eg Sunset Savannah, close to Kidani Village lobby. Thanks

    Jambo, Narelle! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with another oh-so-great vacation planning question.

    Before you know it, you'll be arriving at the gorgeous, lantern-lit Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, ready to begin your wild adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. And with a Savanna View room?! How exciting! Kidani Village is one of my very favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts. From the moment you arrive, you are transported to a beautiful African village on the savanna, and I love having access to the amenities and dining at both Kidani Village and Jambo House, while still being able to escape to the quainter and quieter Kidani Village. The dining is some of the best in all of Walt Disney World Resort, the Resort activities are seemingly endless, and nothing beats watching the animals roam the savanna while you sip your morning coffee or evening glass of wine on your balcony. I am SO excited for you to embark on this magical adventure, and I'm thrilled to answer your question today! 

    The Sunset Savanna, viewed from Kidani Village, is my favorite savanna view at Animal Kingdom Villas for its variety and abundance of animals! Since you're hoping for fantastic views of Sunset Savanna from your Savanna View room, you're in luck! Most of the Savanna View rooms at Kidani Village have views of Sunset Savanna. However, some rooms do face the Pembe Savanna, so, let's chat about how you can make your room request. 

    Since the Pembe Savanna is at the far north end of Kidani Village, if you have a Savanna View room near the lobby or on the South Trail, that will ensure you a view of Sunset Savanna. So, when you complete your Online Check-in on the My Disney Experience website or app, click "Show Details" and then edit your Room Requests. I suggest only requesting "Near Lobby" to keep your request simple and increase your chances of your request being granted. If you would like, you can also call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936 to add your room request to your reservation. If you are a Disney Vacation Club Member staying on Vacation Points, you can call DVC Member Services to add this request. Just keep in mind that this is simply a request, and while Cast Members will do their best to honor your request, there are no guarantees. But even if you don't get your exact room request, Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!" There are no bad Savanna View rooms, and you are sure to have a roaring good time!

    I hope this was helpful, Narelle, and I hope you have the most magical and unforgettable upcoming vacation! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in planDisney!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
