I check in on Dec 1st at Kidani 2BR, already on list but I have 3 question's that hopefully some of you can answer.

1. I know there's 1 pack n' play already in a 2BR, can I request another?

2. The coffee maker filters, is it just the old fashion filters? Are they supplied?

3. Washer/Dryer, how much detergent is supplied? Will the Pods work?

Thank you

If you booked through DVC you will only get filters on the first day and then cleaning dat. If you booked with cash you'll get them every day. Yes, plain old fashioned filters. Unless they changed the coffee makers very recently.

When I was in a 1BR in June it was just one single use box of detergent. Yes the pods will work, that's exactly what I brought too.

I have no idea about a pack n play but since you can request them for other rooms I'm sure you can request a second one with no problem.

I noticed they do sell the filters in the shop if you run out. But we asked for more and they gave us loads!

That picture wasn't from the room, that was from the observation area. We were over there for the marshmallow roast and the three giraffes walked over super close to everyone. It was awesome. In general though we had great animal viewing from the fourth floor room we did have, but nowhere nearly that close!

CL level question

I just got back from a visit to BW CL and I was amazed at the differences between BW and BC CL. So I was wondering does AKL CL offer water that we can take to the parks?

The villa coffee makers all use a 12 cup basket filter.

Unfortunately no. They didn't have water to go. If you want something for the room I think they offered a pitcher to take some of the filtered water they have. The filtered water was fine to drink, but obviously not as convenient as bottled water. That to us was the only thing the BC CL was better for. Otherwise we liked the AKL CL much more.

just back

Hi everyone, we are back from our 10 day stay at Jambo House. We had an amazing time. We had booked a standard view room, and were upgraded at check in to a pool view, with a bunk bed. Our daughter was so excited about the bunk bed (who knew!) We had the first room down the hallway, so right off the elevators. It was perfect--i was so prepared to have a room far down the hallway, that we actually walked past the room at first and had to double back to find it.

We had booked a split stay, checking in on Thursday night, then checking out and back in on Friday to take advantage of Free Dining. When we checked in on Thursday night, our cast member was so great, confirming for us that we would not have to switch rooms, so we could settle in and not worry about having to move in the morning.

We had no problems at all with the busses--most mornings we left well before park openings and beat the crowds. Very rarely did we wait more than 5 minutes for a bus, and they were never crowded. We did find that coming home, if we came back after the park closed, we might have to wait for another bus, but we totally expected that, so it was no big deal. The only night i wished i didn't have to deal with the bus was the night we went to MNSSHP--my husband caught a cold while in Disney and ended up leaving before the party started. So, my daughter and I stayed for the party, and stayed later than i expected. She fell asleep on the bus and carrying her 40 lbs of dead weight from the bus drop off up to our room was not easy. I was so happy to get to our room!

My daughter loved going to the overlooks to check out the animals, and ended up chatting away with the guides there. They always took the time to talk with her and help her with her writers workshop journal she needed to do for school while she was at Disney.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It was so peaceful and serene, it really felt like a vacation from our vacation when we got back from the parks.

Thanks everyone for all the answers to the questions I had while planning. We had such a great time!
