    We will be at WDW the begining of Feb. We are staying at the Animal Kingdom (Arusha Rm) Any certain room you reccommend? Also wondering how passes work. We have 4 days, no park hopper. Wondering where we get tickets for each day.

    Hi Shelly,

    Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my boys' absolute Disney favorites.  They have so much fun gazing at the wildlife outside our resort room, that they (almost) don't want to head to the parks.  (I did say "almost!")    We've stayed overlooking the Arusha savanna several times and we've never had a bad view.  I generally asked to be toward the center of the savanna when I check in, and so far, I've been delighted with the wildlife outside our window.  My boys especially enjoy looking at the zebras which can only be found on this savanna.  I also suggest spending an evening at either Jiko (table-service) or Boma (buffet-style) for dinner on your trip.  In my opinion, these are two of the best restaurants on Disney property.

    As for tickets, if you book a Walt Disney World vacation package, and you are including tickets, you will receive them when you check into your resort.  If you are planning on purchasing tickets when you arrive, you can do so at the front of any theme park before you enter.

    Have a wonderful trip!
