    I have to agree with you about the view thing. We got a reclassified standard view villa and it was beyond wonderful. The last time I stayed at Kidani I had a true standard view and I was satisfied.

    Now, unfortunately, I may never be able to go back to a standard view because that savannah view was beyond great. I just loved it. It was like being on the Safari ride x 10. :love:

    Looking forward to your TR.

    Oh I absolutely agree, I don't think I could ever book a standard view ever again. I've been spoiled!

    Hi Carrie! :welcome: Glad you could make it! I will let you know but it doesn't happen until quite late in the story, by then you'll probably have ridden it yourself.

    :welcome: Brenda! As always, a pleasure to have you along!

    Hi Alicia! :welcome: I hope you're feeling lots better now!
