Kidani elevator locations & animal viewing areas?

Interesting that the Kidani map does not include elevator locations, but does anyone know where are the elevators are located at Kidani? The Kidani map does show AED locations for automated external defibrillators. I'm assuming that the elevators are near the AED's? We are staying in March and want to put in a request near an elevator bank, and if have the name of the elevator or location that would help.

Since we'll have only the standard view rooms (no savannahs were left) we also would like to know where the viewing areas are for animals along the beads, not just lobby. We don't plan on using lobby much - running down to car and heading to other locations at WDW. Also, is there the option of stairs down to the garage area and how many staircases are available at each bead? Where exactly are the animal viewing areas in the corridors - between the beads perhaps of the building? I'm assuming that requesting low floor near Rafiki elevator is what to ask for from what I've read on threads but would like to hear more suggestions from those who have stayed at Kidani. The pool and the garage is going to be more used than the lobby on our trip.

I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I don't have a map, but I've had villas both north and south of the lobby and there were elevators and stairways at convenient places down to the parking.

Right at the pool is an animal viewing area for the Pembe savannah. There are CM's there to talk about the animals that you see.

IIRC, looking at the map anywhere that has an AED is also an elevator.

There aren't any outside viewing areas in the beads but there are windows to look out between each of them. All the outside viewing at Kidani is around the lobby or at the area by the pool AFAIK. I walked the halls looking a few weeks ago!
