AKL to begin charging $30 premium for arusha savanna views in 2011

I found this very interesting; wonder whether it'll become a dedicated AKV booking category down the line. It does definitively answer the "best savanna" question that crops up here

Is this for cash reservations only or does this apply to DVC?

Cash only, at least for now.

DVC would have to come up with a separate booking category and modify the points. Pretty safe to say probably won't happen anytime soon if ever.

DVC would not be able to increase the points required to guarantee a villa on the Arusha Savanna without lowering the points for other villas.

That's interesting. I wouldn't mind paying less pts for a lesser savannah view since it seems like it's hit or miss where you get assigned anyway.

Exactly. It would create an interesting scenario. I wouldn't mind the option of fewer points for non-arusha SV rooms.

Couldn't they make it a booking category, like the BW view rooms at BWV? Those are the same points at the preferred/garden view. Would that not work for AKV as well?

Just curious!

Yes, they could definitely do that without requiring a point reallocation. That would be a nice little 11/7 perk, now that you mention it.

If I was paying cash, I pay more for Arusha.

Think it would do anything to availability for the other views? Possibly more availability since some might be willing to wait or pick another date due to the availability of the Arusha view?

Actually, I disagree that it answers any "best savannah" question. Rather, it seems to me that it answers the "most requested savannah" question.

Exactly, kind of like LeCellier isn't the "best restaurant" but the "most requested ADR."

Conveniently, in this case there happens to be a perfect match there. The new shared sunset savanna is also pretty great.
