I agree with Tom that Kidani is better in every regard -- except for the Grand Villas! We did not care for the Club Level. Sanaa is our favorite restaurant in all of WDW and we love having the extra bathroom in the 1-bedroom villa.

We also want a guaranteed savannah view room. AKK is our home resort (we have 5 contracts) and we purchased there to be able to see the animals.

Since we have a car, I will just lay in some food and alcohol and book Kidani. I will sip my own wine while watching giraffes.

Maybe being adventurous is a bad idea.

The views from the Club Level rooms are bad to worse. Which is the reason DVC for those rooms to begin with. Cash paying customers complained horribly, yet DVC members cant get enough time in the rooms. All views are partially block. Th SV views are so high up, and the trees block everything. The "pool" views are mostly of roof and tops of things.

We only have three contracts there, but all were purchased with the animals in mind.

Sadly, I only have one. I keep meaning to buy more, I just never get around to it. Plus, with us booking 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units savanna view, more often then not I can get at 7 months out.

I would definitely recommend this before I spend the points on a CL 1 bedroom or larger. I only choose Jambo for studios or Value category villas. Blt and AKV Kidani have the 2 baths in the 1 bedroom and those are my preference when I have guests.
I can lay out my own cheese and crackers and the gift shop sells the same beer and wine that is served on CL.

I’m not giving up a better floor plan and extra bath at Kidani when the points are the same.
I think Kidani has matured beautifully and feels very relaxed.

And I enjoy AKV CL, we booked 12 nights when Jambo 1 st opened and was given the HA 1 bedroom. 1st time I ever cried at Disney. Never again. CL Studio or no CL at all for me.
