Animal Kingdom Lodge Savannah View Rooms with Bunk BedsOne of my favorite resorts on Disney property is Animal Kingdom Lodge. The resort makes you feel like you are staying in the middle of a African reserve, especially if you book an Animal Kingdom Lodge Savannah room. These roomss are the only place at Disney World where you can actually see animals in a safari setting from your balcony.

If you are planning a trip to Disney and want to really live it up, you should book the Savanna View Bunk Bed Rooms at Animal Kingdom Lodge. It really is worth every penny.

Animal Kingdom Bunk Bed RoomAnimal Kingdom Lodge Savannah View Rooms are made to look like you are in a real African Lodge. Bunk beds are optional and do cost a bit more, but if you have multiple kids, it is a real treat.

Savanna View Bunk Bed RoomsThe best part about staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge is being able to see the animals from your room. Just venture outside to your balcony and take in the view!

Animal Kingdom Lodge ZebrasDepending on the time of day, you will see different types of animals; everything from giraffes to zebras!

Castmembers place inconspicuous feeding bins in trees and bushes to attract the animals and provide you the best chance at viewing them.

Wondering what you are seeing exactly? Yes, you know what a giraffe looks like, but what about an Okapi or a Gray Crowned Crane.

Animal Kingdom Wildlife Spotting Guide

No need to worry. Each room with a Animal Kingdom Lodge Savanna view room contains a Wildlife Spotting Guide.

We found that we were able to spot animals throughout the day, but that they were around the most early in the morning and about 6pm in the evening (during the summer months).

Wondering what else you can do while at Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort? You won’t want to miss spending some time at the Animal Kingdom pool, visiting the award winning Animal Kingdom restaurants or the fabulous kids activities like storytelling!

While I love Animal Lodge Resort for many reasons, I truly feel that what sets it apart from the rest is the experience of seeing the animals in the Savanna.

If you do get a chance to stay at a Disney Deluxe resort, be sure to book the Savanna View rooms so you can enjoy seeing the animals!

We are renting DVC points to stay in AKL in a studio with savanna view. We are hoping to have a room with bunk beds but those aren't available through DVC. Is there a chance that we'll be able to be switched to a bunk bed room?

I am pretty sure that the DVC stays in a different building at AKL than the resort guests. I am not sure if they have the bunk beds over there. But they do have a really great pool!

Going in July, changed to the Savannah room when my travel agent called me back to tell me that Disney had dropped prices on the rooms. Nervous about the heat but hoping for the best. Only staying 4 days and arriving late morning on a Thursday. ... What are the other "must do's " while on the resort with such a small stay

There are events going on every day & evening. You will find a board that will tell you what is going on & where in the lobby. There are 2 pools you can access (one at each building). Go to both because there is something cool about each one. There is plenty of room to roam around to see animals outside as well. If you have them, bring binoculars. You can get cheap pair on Amazon. They have a night safari tour as well (but costs extra).
