Question AKL Club Level - Question

I've stayed club level in the past a AKL and I'm almost 100% positive that ALL club level rooms had a Savanna view. Well, my reservation for this summers trip say:


ANIMAL KINGDM LDG- NOGAK LODGE-STANDARD-CLUB
SPECIAL REQUEST: REQUEST KING SIZE BED
PLEASE NOTE: SAVANNA VIEW RQT NO GTD
Located at Disneys Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House

I don't get it ... and what does NOGAK LODGE mean?

All non-DVC club level rooms are savannah view. DVC club level rooms are pool or savannah.

I'm guessing NOG is your package code and AK LODGE is where you're staying.

That's what I thought. I am not a DVC member. I guess I'm just confused as the why my confirmation would say it's NOT guaranteed. Should I call Disney Reservations and question it?

Mine for our May trip says

05/02/2010 HOTEL
ANIMAL KINGDM LDG- NOIAK LODGE-STANDARD-CLUB
PLEASE NOTE: CELEBRATING 1ST ANNIVERSARY

I know the CM we booked with on the phone added in the 1st anniversary thing.

But yeah I'm positive all the non-DVC club level rooms are savannah view. They are all on the 4th floor.

I called reservations and the lady I spoke to assured me it will have a Savannah view. She really had no idea why the person who booked our trip added that comment. I feel better!

Glad you got your answer. Since you've done it, would you recommend staying CL at AKL? We're thinking about it and can't decide.
Thanks!

You can always call the IPO office at AKL and ask them. I was told that ALL the CL rooms are 4th floor, guaranteed savanna view. We've stayed there twice, and that's what we got.

The computer generated stuff is not always accurate -- lots of people have reported their confirmation as "Pirate room" at the Poly (doesn't exist) and 1 bedroom villa at the GF (also doesn't exist).

If you are still worried, though, give the IPO office a call. They are the ones that place you in your room anyway, not CRO.

AKL CL is absolutely wonderful! I really hope you enjoy your stay there!!!

I have stayed CL at AKL several times. It is great. The food oferings are quite good, the lounge and the view out over the AKL lobby are beautiful and, by staying CL, one gets access to the Sunrise Safari (although I myself have never done this).
