I agree completely.

So tomorrow we're going to try our first attempt at online checkin. Do y'all have any suggestions for requests? It will be (6 months pregnant), DH, and our DD (almost 3). We booked a standard view studio.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Congratulations on your trips!

You might want to request close to the lobby in order to avoid a long walk to your room as I would guess you will be tired enough with all the walking you do in the parks. However, the rooms very close to the lobby will first have the roof above Boma in front of them and then the pool in the distance.
FWIW- We stayed in one of the "sub-par" savanna view rooms in Oct and were blown away by the amount of time the giraffes spent in the area There was a fair amount of other animal time, but the giraffes seem to just hang out and play. Would another view have been *better* maybe, and I can't really say, but I do know that we were in no way disappointed with the view and really felt like we got quite a deal considering what "standard view" gets you at some of the other resorts...like roofs, parking lots, etc.....that we were able to see two different fireworks shows in the distance at the same time was just icing on the cake!

Hi, could someone help me with the diffrence between: Standard Room with Bunk Beds, Arusha Savanna View, and Kilimanjaro Club Level with Concierge Service - Standard Room. Heres what the disney website says. We stayed Bunk bed Arusha view in October, & it was AMAZING. Just wondering why Club level/concierge is slightly cheaper. It says you get Arusha savanna view, & can choose queen with bunkbeds. And you also get Secure key access to the Club Level Lounge, which serves refreshments from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily. That would be a plus! We just had such a great room/view where we stayed last time, I wouldn't want to change it up for next time with out knowing all the facts. Our room last time was just a super short walk right past the lobby!
