    We are staying at AKL in Jan. & have a standard view room. Can you see any animals from a standard room balcony or is it just the parking lot? There are no savannah/pool view rooms available at this time. Will we be disappointed with our room?

    The standard rooms vary with their views at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  While the rooms do face the parking lot, you may have a room with a lot of vegetation keeping the view pretty and others may be right off the path of guests walking to the bus stop.  However, throughout all the hallways as well as the lobby area are plenty of viewing areas where guests can enjoy the savanna views.  And don't hesitate to ask when you check-in if any rooms with a pool or savanna view have become available.  

    When I was recently there in September, we had booked a standard room without any hesitation because the rooms and resort itself are so beautiful I didn't worry about the view from the balcony.  However, we were surprised to find out when we walked in the room that we had received a complimentary upgrade to a savanna view.  Magic can certainly happen when you least expect it!
