If you are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, you can request what is called a Savannah view. Animal Kingdom Lodge has animals that can be viewed right outside your hotel room! While the rooms themselves are a bit of an upgrade, the view is really what you’re paying for with this upgrade.

Disney’s Polynesian Resort has an amazing view in pretty much every room. However, if you have money to blow, consider renting one of their bungalows! This is a villa style experience room, but you are located right on the lake! You can have amazing views of the resort and the lake, and even a hot tub on your balcony for a great view of the fireworks!

This one is on here if you are a family traveling with young kids! All throughout the resort, you will notice statues of your favorite characters! If you have a poolside view or a room with a view of your child’s favorite character, this experience will be fun for them! This is also on the budget side of the resorts, so you can get a room with a view without going to a deluxe resort!

While some of these resorts will be hard to book, sometimes it’s worth splurging for the great view! I hope this list has given you some great choices on the best rooms to book if you want a view.
