Confused about AKL/Jambo House vs. AKL DVC

Are the rooms that I can reserve at AKL (Jambo House) the same rooms that I get if I rent DVC points for an AKL reservation, or are the DVC studios different from the AKL rooms?

Yes they are different from regular hotel rooms, or were in my experience - the DVC studios in Jambo have a kitchenette across from the bathroom with sink and microwave and cupboards, and 1 bed and a sofa-bed instead of 2 beds. Very similar or identical to studios at Kidani. There might be a size difference but not noticeable to us.

There are DVC rooms at both Jambo and Kidani. Kidani is exclusively DVC (studios, 1br, 2br, 3br). Jambo has both regular hotel rooms (2 beds, king, or bunkbed) and DVC studios (similar size, 1queen + sleeper sofa, kitchenette).

Jambo has all size DVC villas, not just the studios but there's far fewer DVC villas in Jambo vs the dedicated DVC at Kidani. Additionally Kidani has an extra bathroom in the 1br+. When booking you book specifically Jambo or Kidani.

DVC Jambo has a few "value" rooms that are smaller than the regular DVC rooms. These rooms are actually the same size as the AKL regular rooms. The other DVC rooms are the former "deluxe" AKL rooms and are larger than regular AKL rooms.
