Is there a place to go view the animals if we don't have a savannah view from our room?

Or should I suck it up and get the savannah view rooms?
No need to spend the extra money, there are tons of viewing areas around the resort. All along the hallways and the main one off the lobby.

I don't know if it helps, but back in October they still had the night viewing goggles.

But the kids are a bit disappointed to not be decorating a tree this year. I thought i'd surprise them. I plan on leaving it in the room...do you think mousekeeping will get rid of it or leave it for the next person? i'd hate to leave it just to have it tossed... What do ya'll think should i leave it or bring it back home?
I'm planning to gift mine to someone else. Either a DISer or maybe just carry it to the lobby and hand it to someone.

I would love to see the Dec activity sheet. We're at BWV but switch to AKV next week. This will be our first AKV stay.
