Question AKL Value Studio Location

I know the value studios are at Jambo House, Just wondering where in Jambo House the value studios are located. Are they on a certain trail or floor? Are they spread out thoughout the trails? Thanks

The Values are located along the Ostrich and Giraffe Trails. Except for the Concierge Level units (6th floor), all DVC units in Jambo House are on the 5th floor. Below is a link to a map of the 5th floor of Jambo House.

Thanks for the info. That is a great site.

Can anyone share their experience with the value studios? Was there a kitchenette?

Thanks

Yes it has a kitchenette. We have only had one as part of a two bedroom lock off. They are small but we only had two people staying in it so it was ok but very tight with the sofa bed open.

We liked our value studio stay so much (we lucked out with a dedicated studio and a savanna view), we're repeating it in May '12!

50% of my value stays have been savannah views and the rest have been pool views. I enjoy the fact that the values are pretty close to the bus stop, relatively speaking, it's a huge resort! Also, if you have the pool view, there's an elevator that takes you right down to the pool, so it's win win and low points!

I have a week in a value studio next June! Had a great stay in a value 2 bedroom this September.

getting a value at 7 months

Next question...

I am planning this trip for next October... date to be determined.

Would it be hard to get a studio at that time? I know it will almost impossible to get in at the Beach Club at 7 months during F&W time.

Out of the 5 value studios I've stayed in, one had no freezer compartment in the refrigerator-



One had the freezer door frozen shut, but you can see how close the ice machine was -


And one had an ancient microwave-



However, I'm not complaining. The microwave worked as well as a brand new one, and although I had a frozen freezer door, I had the best savannah view I'd ever had (better than from savannah view rooms I've booked). I love the point value of the value studios at AKV.

Yes, getting the value villas at 7 months can be difficult. But you don't know unless you try. Book at your home resort at 11 months and see if you can switch.

i don't think the time period is especially bad, but there are only 18 to 20 value studios at most to be had. not unusual for the AKV owners to book them all...but you never know.

It will probably be difficult because of the small number of value studios, but not impossible. I just gave up a value studio at the 7 month mark, so maybe it will happen for you.

I've had to waitlist twice for a value studio at AKV in October at 7 months. But the good news is that both times, my waitlist came through in a week or so.

It wouldn't do any good to book at my home resort. I am at the Grand Californian. Any resort I book will be at the 7 month time period. Good thought though.

I knew I should have bought at AKL
