    Hi There! I have done online check-in and now I am wondering where do I request 2 queen beds instead of 1 king. I just saw the first page (very nice!) and didn't realize all of the bed options. We will be in a Jambo Deluxe studio, we rented points. Do I have to call and add it to the reservation? 4 weeks from today!!!

    I know, I keep thinking that. Oh, we are so excited.

    I will try to give an update. The kids are very excited.

    If you have a studio, you will have one queen bed and a sleeper sofa. No choice of beds available, so no need to request anything.

    We can wait... I'm 85% sure it will happen (we just don't know how long my husband's strike will be so I need to find out if I should go ahead and book since you have to pay it 100% in advance or wait until it is over).

    hope the strike does not last too long.

    I am waiting for this sequestration to be over.

    One Week till Kidani! We'd do the Mickey Dance, except the family is down with a tummy bug. Up side, it's not flu or strep. It seems to be a 24 hour thing that is passing through our neighborhood.

    Makes me want to give everyone a bleach bath and burn all our clothes to start new...~laugh~. Can't wait for some Florida sunshine! Just have to survive the Autotrain with three kids, first,

    I should add that we're 1/26-2/9 at Kidani. Half in two studios, and the second half in a 2bd standard view.

    For those that have done both, why do you prefer Kidani over Jambo? We stayed in Jambo last time and loved it! We are just two adults so we don't need another bathroom or even more room, and when we went over and visited we were underwhelmed by the entrance compared to Jambo. Wondering which we should request for next time since I'm wondering what we are missing. Thanks! :thumbsup2

    My husband and I are big Jambo fans. We looked at kidani/dvc. Weren't too impressed. But, we don't cook, and have no kids.:)

    Jambo! I love the extra space and the newness of the Kidani rooms, but all the good stuff is over at Jambo!! ;)

    I only book Kidani if: (1) we need the extra bathroom or (2) there are no rooms available to Jambo! :flower3:

    Thank you both! I think we will just stay at Jambo again... we did love it, and while we do cook at home, we arent there enough to want to do it on vacation! We also don't have kids, so Jambo it is. :goodvibes

    This is my first post to the board. We are so excited that we are coming to AKL end of July/early Aug. This is our 3rd trip to Disney (WL 2009, BC 2012). We booked CL room. I am hoping they will have a bunk bed for the kids. Once we tried club level last year, that was the way to go. How is the bus transportation in real time to the other parks?
    I have to say, staying at BC last summer, it was not great. SO crowded and the bus and boat from BC stopped at other locations, making the trip even longer. The fact that BC had boat service didn't make it any more desirable because of the many stops. So going in, I am not as concerned that AKL has only bus, but does it "feel" like it takes a long time to get to MK, Hollywood, etc?
