We have a 1BR reserved for November. Can we put in requests when we check in at the 60 day mark or should we call in asap and have a CM enter the room request manually?

I should have checked the distance for us last January. I swear, the walk from Jambo House to Kidani seemed shorter than the walk from the lobby to our room.

It is definitely better to have your requests added by a CM. A quick phone call should take care of it!

"Deluxe" is what all the DVC rooms are called! Did you book a studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom........ they're all classified as "deluxe"! Sneaky of DVC, wasn't it?!!! Still, you'll be at Jambo - that's exciting!

I know, right!! It's gets longer when it's 12:30 AM and you have been at the parks all day and you are carrying a sleeping child!!

It's a studio.. It's only one night before DD goes to camp in eustis Florida. Since we spent last week in a pool view.. I thought I would get her a savannah to watch the animals.
Are the pull out beds comfortable?

I've never slept in one, but DD19 has on several occasions and said it's comfy.

it was so hot last week but we never found the pool over crowded..I did almost have a smack down with a guy who threw 6 towels on chairs just as my DD was putting her stuff on a chair. He challenged me, but mama bear won! He then disappeared and I didn;t see him or his wife again. reserved 6 chairs and went over by the hot tub

ps..here is our pool day last wednesday.. this was about 12 noon


here was my room..it is the red balcony between the 2 green (in the shadow)

We did put in a request to be close to the Timon elevators. If we don't get it that's ok. Just happy to be there. It's been 4 years since we have visited the World.

Lounge location

Hi, all:
Confused as usual. We have CL and our TA asked for a room near elevator. So, we would like a King bed, but most important -- we don't want to walk 1/4 mile each way back and forth to the lounge. I cannot tell from the map the location and we really cannot walk too much. I've been reading about the long, long walk some folks have from their room to the club lounge. Can someone suggest a more centrally located room that is still CL? As mentioned in previous posts, we will spend most if not all our time at the property and the lounge looks like a good place to hang out between sightings from our balcony.

Thanks for your help. This is an awesome group.
Jennie
