    Tanya, Thank you so much for the reassurance! I feel so much better now about AKL! We also booked the savanna view, which I hear is amazing in itself. We'll be going in May. I hear Zebra trail has good location. Is viewing better ground level or 2nd/3rd

    Hi Shelley!

    Thanks so much for writing back!  You'll have to let me know how the vacation was when you're back!  I'm so glad you splurged on a savanna view.  While there are plenty of opportunities to see the animals if you have a different view, I think you'll agree it's totally worth it to be able to stand on your balcony and check out the wildlife!

    As for which floor is best, I actually (honestly) think they are all great.  We stayed on the second and third floors and thought both were equally fantastic.  I suppose, if you "made me" pick, I preferred the third floor because it offered a bit more perspective, but I'd be happy anywhere.  We saw zebras, giraffes and a variety of other animals grazing all day.   

    There are great activities at the resort, including storytelling by fire in the evening.  My kids loved this.  I think I mentioned that Boma and Jiko rank highly on my Disney Restaurant List, but, I wanted to add that Mara, the quick-service restaurant is excellent as well for a snappy breakfast (Mickey waffles!) or lunch as well.

    I hope you have an amazing vacation.  May is an outstanding weather month in Central Florida.  You are in for a treat!
