I would ask for a lobby overlook or have the TA note the "close to lobby" location on your reservation. Mine did this for me and I had Giraffe Trail and it was about 30 second walk to the lobby and perfect when tired!

I don't know where I am going to get since I usually request lobby level but since I will be in DVC, I could be anywhere. It's only one night, so I think I can handle the walk! LOL

That is where we were..right above the roof of Jiko..it was so lovely to look at the stream and pool each morning.

My DD was disappointed by the pool view.. she really missed our typical savannah view..so she will be happy in 29 days!!!

That it does. Our youngest decided that very vacation that the stroller was an instrument of torture and only by being carried would be make it through the vacation. Since she wasn't walking yet, she was toted around. I had serious mom arms by the end of the week.

As best I can tell, the elevators at Kidani are by the bus transportation (Timon), closer to the lobby and pool (Rafiki) and far, far away (Pumba). Does that sound right? If I were to request a room close to Rafiki, we'd get the sunset savannah. Timon would also be close to the lobby, but on the other side. Pumba would be either savannah, but probably farther away than I'd like. Closer to our trip, I'll have to ask my husband if he really has a preference for Pembe. He's not as Disney-crazed as I am, so I can give on the view. But I'd really rather not be so far out from the lobby.

We requested close to Timon elevators so here's hoping we get it. To us close to busses is the most important. What savanna does that put us on? We have a 1 bdr SV.

That should be the Sunset Savanna. I was talking to DD10 (my cohort in planning Disney trips). We both agree we should just stay on the Pembe Savanna if it makes my husband happy. He really doesn't request anything when it comes to these trips, and the savanna is the only point about which he's expressed an opinion. It's not as if we can't see zebras and giraffes from other parts of the resort.
