Hello eveyone

I haven't been on this thread in a while but I have a curious question. We are staying at Jambo on rented points in a standard studio and when I did online check in at 60 days it said we could check one request for our room. I had no expectations, since we are staying in a standard room, so I just checked the box for a 5th floor room lol. What exactly does that mean?

What were some of the other options? Your standard studio will be on the 5th floor, so I find it a big odd that they would list that as an option.

I will say that the best way to make requests (for DVC) is through Member Services. Since you're renting, the "owner" of those points would have to make the request(s) for you.

Also of note: any requests already made (DVC or not) will be overridden if you make requests during online check-in. So if the owner had previously made any requests (i.e., near lobby), those would now be gone. I do online check-in to make sure my credit card is attached to the reservation and to let them know of my estimated arrival/departure times - nothing more.

okay I went back to our online ressie page to see what the other request were: (1) room on 5th floor (2) room near transportation (3) room on Kudu Trail Section.

Since we are renting pts. we really had no requests and not too worried about it. I just thought it was interesting to see that there was a spot to make a request and just checked a box lol. Kind of interested to know what the kudu trail section is though? What do you think....should I change my request since apparently we will be on the 5th floor regardless lol?

Yes, you will be on the 5th floor. Near transportation would put you on the Zebra Trail/Giraffe Trail side - closer to pool, restaurants, buses.

Kudu Trail MIGHT get you a reclassified savanna view -- one of the rooms that has a view of the Savanna, but wasn't worthy of costing the points of a true Savanna view. The downside is that you could end up with quite a long walk to your room!

I've stayed in a Standard Jambo villa twice and both times my room was right on the lobby with a view of the pool -- I couldn't have had a more convenient location!

But wherever your room is, you're at AKL & WDW so it's ALL good!!!
