Animal Kingdom Lodge Villa ?'s

Forgive me for asking a question that I am sure has been asked 100 times biy 210 pages of the Animal Kingdom Thread is just too much to read....

We are renting DVC points and staying at Jambo House in a standard view studio. I leep hearing how long the walk is to the bus stop and I would like to request a room clos to the bus stop. Can anyone point me in the direction of a map that has room types and locations? Or better yet, does anyone know what room #'s I should request?

We are park people, we only have a few afternoons/ mornings set aside for resort time so I am not going to worry about the best view - I am more concerned about my tired feet at the end of a long day getting into bed as soon as possible.

Thanks!

Just request close to the bus stop. The owner of the reservation you are renting will have to make that request for you.

I rented DVC points 2 weeks ago at Jambo in a standard studio. Once I could online check in at 60 days, I could select Close to Transport as an option. The DVC owner did not have to do it for me. I also requested that our room be ready at arrival (11 am) above any room requests. When we checked in, our room was ready, but we were alllllll tthhhheeee wayyyyyy back at the end of Kudu trail. I was a little nervous, but the walk was NOT bad at all! In fact, I was so overly impressed with our partial Savanna view, I am thankful they didnt honor my request.

You could try requesting Giraffe or Ostrich trails. Those are the two hallways at the front of the resort!

Your gonna L-O-V-E it either way!! My new favorite resort!!!

I never use on line check in, so didn't know that was a choice. I just call on the phone and for that option, the owner would have to call Member Services.
