Hello, I just upgraded our resort from Caribbean Beach to Animal Kingdom Lodge! We are only able to do a standard room, but I am still excited! We will be there Dec 4 - Dec 9. I don't know too much about the resort yet, but am having fun looking. If we are just a regular standard room, does that mean we will be in Jambo? Can't wait to go!

Savanah View

I asked for a Savannah view. Does this mean that we will automatically placed in a room that we can see the animals or do I have to do something special

Did you PAY for a savannah view if so, then yes, you'll get a room with a view of animals. However, if you only ASKED for a savannah view, then you'll likely only get what you paid for.

That being said, we only paid for a pool view, never asked for more, and were upgraded to Arusha view

OMG That was so awesome! Our girls never want another resort/room again.

Anything and everything, Jiko is amazing.

If you're booked for a savannah view through DVC you will get an Arusha view, savannah view is always Arusha for DVC.

The filet and Mac and cheese. The Mac and cheese is not on the menu, but last time we were there you could still get it. Soooo yummy!!! Enjoy it! It is a great experience!
