Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House Disney Vacation Club Rooms

Can you tell me where the DVC rooms are located. I looked at the map and they appear to be in the main lobby. I am confused do these rooms look out on the Pool area from the Main Lobby? I have never been to AKL so I cannot got a grasp of the Map...

If you look on the outer white part it tells you what you are looking at. For example 5313 is overlooking Arusha savannah, 5426 overlooks the pool, 5135 overlooks the front entrance. See?

DVC is only on 5th and 6th floor (concierge) so the room that are by the lobby are actually above it. Does that help? The door to the room maybe facing the lobby(but 5 floors up) but looking out on the balcony you will see the pool if that is the view you have reserved.

The opening ceiling in the lobby is 5 stories high.

There are no DVC villas on the fourth floor. Just the fifth and sixth at Jambo House. On the sixth floor there are only five two bedroom lockoffs.

I am still confused.. sorry. Looking at the map I posted... someone said that 2 rooms overlook the parking lot are Standard View numbers 5135? Are ALL the standard view rooms DVC lock off's on floor 4? 5? 6? or all three.

Where are the VALUE rooms located. I am trying to decide on if to keep my waitlist for Value.

Thanks in advance!

Don't forget to click and make the image larger it makes it much easier to read. The rooms over the entrance that are not colored are not DVC accomidations but AKL. All standard view at Jambo has a pool view.

Values 40% savannah, 40% pool and 20%parking lot.

dvc rooms

New member trying to figure this out for an upcoming trip...

savannah view rooms would be fifth floor only?
concierge rooms would be floor 6 only (with no guarantee of view)?so if you booked CL room you would not be guaranteed to get a savannah view?

Thanks for your help!

No, villas in Jambo House are located on the fifth and sixth floors. There are five two bedroom lockoffs on the sixth floor - three are savanna view and two are pool view. But both views are blocked somewhat by the roof. But you get the concierge lounge and ability to book the Sunrise Safari (that costs extra). The villas on the fifth floor are standard (pool view and blocked savanna views), savanna view and value villas (parking lot, pool and savanna, but you cannot request a view with the value villas).

If you don't own at AKV it is very difficult to get the concierge villas. They go quickly at 11 months out.

So some of the CL rooms are SV but not good ones, not as good as the ones you would get by booking a regular SV from your points.

I do own at AKL (new member) but due to the time period when out contract was finalized, we were only at the 7 mth window by then....have a reservation for SV but waitlisted for CL for our trip!

Exactly. If you really want a nicer savanna view, you want to book Savanna view instead of Concierge villas. The best reason to book Concierge villas is to get the Sunrise Safari, the concierge lounge offerings and daily fully cleaning (including turndown service).
