AKL Room View and Parking Question

We are staying at Jambo House 2 bedroom through DVC points. The reservation is for standard so my question is what floor do you think we will be on and what view will we likely have?

About parking, we are driving our 27 foot motor home, is there parking for this at the resort and will we have to pay extra?

This is AKV info from AllEarsNet.

The "regular" studios are being built in rooms that are part of the "deluxe" category for the lodge, hence the larger size (think floors 5-6). Standard villa views may be of the pool, garden or parking lot.

You will be on the fifth floor with a pool view (more than likely). There are a few standard view villas that used to be categorized as savanna view, but that view is partially blocked. You might get that blocked savanna view. All the DVC villas are on the fifth and sixth floors at Jambo House, but the sixth floor is only concierge villas (five two bedroom lockoffs).

The parking lot is a large lot and you might be able to park it at the back of the lot. There shouldn't be any extra cost.

Your two bedroom villa is a lockoff. Meaning a combination of a one bedroom and a studio with the door between them open. You'll have a small kitchenette in the second bedroom (which will have one queen bed and one double sleeper sofa). There will be two doors to enter your two bedroom lockoff.
