I don't know if anyone mentioned this yet...we just got back from Jambo house and saw them putting in new mattresses in a bunch of rooms on the third floor. We stayed on the 5th floor- not sure if we had a new mattress in our room, but the bed and sleeper sofa were super comfy either way

OK, just wanted to make sure!!! Again, as stated before, there are TONS of viewing area's all over the resort!! Have a good time!!

It's still not written in stone, so you don't have to change me on this list unless you just want to.

Now we're Jan 20-28.

We'll see...

The good thing is you will still be close to the restaurants. From the zebra trail there are elevators which go straight down to the pool area and the restaurants are right there. It's very convenient.

The only smoking area near giraffe trail is actually close to the Boma/Jiko entrance..and it's under cover.

There USED to be a smoking area near the health club and spa/hot tub, but it's been moved. It's now behind the pool bar.

??? Did they just change this? When I was there three weeks ago there was one behind the hot tub and the one behind the bar was gone. My brother was in dire need of these areas so I'm positive.

Jambo house's used to be there (behind the hot tub) awhile ago...few years, I think, then it moved behind the bar.

Unless they changed it BACK again (you never know)....but the current map (on disney's own site) shows the new (old?) smoking positions.

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/med...-lodge-map.pdf

That is: the one outside boma's/jikos, one between the bus stop and the lobby, and the one behind the bar.

Kidani's are (were?) behind the health club and right near the bus stops.

Edit: And I've just been "reminded" we're supposed to keep the smoking discussions in the one smoking thread. So I'll leave it there. My suggestion, for the person asking the question about room location, would be to very nicely ask in that thread if the AKL smoking area has been moved.

Edit2: I asked, in the thread. Someone confirmed the move. Don't know the specifics (temp vs perm, etc)...but given that, I'd go with anjalee's suggestion.

That's so bizarre. Thanks for the info

Thanks for the info! I hope the mattress I had was an old one, it was super hard. Looking forward to better sleep next trip.

Yup, as discussed a few posts back, looks like they changed it again.
