We've done AKL too and LOVED it! We booked a standard room, but they upgraded us to savanah view for free. When we checked in and went to our room, Holly immediately went to the balcony. And standing right before her, was a giraffe. She was so excited. We spent alot of time on our balcony that trip...
Oh, and Marion booked our WL trip and we got that view too...it was WONDERFUL!
