We enjoyed everything and the resort is much quieter and "seemed" much closer to the animals....probably because it was more relaxed. My DD3 and DS1 loved the pool and splash area. They also ran a shuttle back and forth between the two buildings at least every 10 minutes so we had no problem making activities or meals at Jambo. It was, by a small measure, my favorite stay at Disney. Easy parking, bus service was quick and reliable (my main concern) and my young kids LOVED watching the animals. You will enjoy both....but think you'll be really happy with Kidani unless you are looking for more "action". Have a great trip!
Hearing your comments makes me even more excited to try Kidani. Thanks!

We have stayed at Jambo house in the past and loved it!!! This June we are giving Kidani a try! At first I was a little nervous about the lack of QS location, but then realized I'm rarely at the resort to actually eat. The most we would actually us the QS for is to refill our mugs and you can do that at the pool and gift shop at Kidani! I can attest that one thing that appeals to me most is that the busses stop and drop of at Kidani first. There were many time when we stayed at Jambo that the busses would be completely full by the time they got to us. And after a long day in the parks I'm glad we will be the first stop! 22 more days!!! Here's hoping the next 3 weeks go quickly!

It probably goes without saying, but the extra bathroom in a 1-bdrm means there is also an extra in the 2-bdrm (2 baths at Jambo / 3 baths at Kidani).

We are staying there this fall in a lock-off 2-bdrm. The dedicated 2-bdrms have a balcony that goes all the way across. The lock-off has 1 large and 1 small balcony. I booked the lock-off because my in-laws are coming and then it is like they have a studio attached to our 1-bdrm. They will also have a kitchenette, so they'll have their own coffee maker. My DH and I need one to ourselves!
