    I don't remember what the number was but it was way down the hall.

    Jambo was great, and we loved it. Don't think too much about which room you hope to get because it wouldn't be guaranteed anyway.

    There are only 6 GV's at Jambo so much is just going to depend on what's vacant at the time you check in.

    Some of the GV's are at the end of the wings and none are right by the lobby. From what I found in research is that the GV near the pool is the HA GV (5483). All of them seem to have similar though slightly different views of the savannahs. I did request one closer to the lobby (5284) and happened to get it but a trade off is that we could hear noise and see the service/HVAC area for the Kidani. It wasn't terribly intrusive but it was visible. Here's a picture of what I'm describing.

    And here's a link to a map from DVCNews that shows the room numbers:

    Thanks, I hadn't thought about the service area noise. We have stayed out on the other wing end and I think I will request the wing you stayed on except on the end, long walk, or the one we stayed in before, another long walk.

    Thanks to all, for the answers.
