We have not stayed at AKL, but are in agreement that when/if we do, it won't be without the savannah view. For us, that would be a must do for staying there.

We LOVED WL, and I don't really think the view matters much there. It is such a beautiful, wonderful resort and the transportation options are great!

WL and AKL are two of my favorites. Can't go wrong with either. I would probably pick WL because of the proximity to MK. Some of the boats you can just wheel the stroller on, some (smaller ones), they ask for you to collapse. Depends on how big the boat and how busy it is.

I have always done savannah view, so would feel like I was missing something if I booked standard room. Now, since you haven't stayed savannah view, I'm guessing that you would be perfectly happy with standard view at AKL.

Oh...small bonus, but you can view the water parade at night at WL. I prefer the big pool at WL, just because of the wrap around feel of the resort. That being said, the Kidani pool (kind of a hike from Jambo) rocks for the younger set. In November, the pool is definitely in play.

Personally, I feel WL is the better of the 2 simply because of it's proximity to MK. AKL is a 15 minute ride which can seem like enternity if standing on a packed bus after a long day in the park.
