Just checked in and received 5210. We booked a standard studio. It is our first visit to AKL, which we bought resale in 2012. We've used the points elsewhere at BWV and Aulani but it's our first stay at our home resort.

View is pretty good as we saw a few animals already.

Thanks! I have added it to the list. Looking at a satellite view of Jambo House it looks like that room is near a people pen so perhaps that is why it was reclassified. It's great that DVC members can get those rooms at the Standard View rate! Here is the updated list:

Have you tried asking for pool view when you arrive to check-in? I know there are plenty of people like me that really prefer Savannah view (despite the walk) when staying on standard points.
I would think you have a good chance at getting pool view if you ask.

BTW, THANKS LisaS for keeping this list going!

Can you request a specific room or no? I am renting points and put in for the savannah view but if I could pay for standard and get a view room I WOULD be thrilled

While you can request a specific room, DVC operates on 98%+ occupancy, so the chance that your specified room will be open on the day that you check in is very slim.

I always request a pool view when booking standard but ALWAYS get one of the reclassified standard savannah views. I just think they now significantly outnumber the pool views.

We had a lovely pool view studio lock off last week . I think it was room 5406 Right off the lobby next to the bridge. My husband was sitting at the pool bar when I called him on his cell to look up!
