    To us, it didn't really. Waiting for a bus sometimes going back to AKL took forever though .

    Ahh, ok thanks. Is the sleeper sofa a full or queen? As opposed to a twin?

    I am happy to hear everyone loves Jambo so much. I really cannot wait!!!

    Laura, I definitely agree with you about Jambo. We stayed at Kidani in October. It was nice to explore a new resort, but the atmosphere at Jambo can't be beat.

    The only ones it feels long to me is MK and DTD, both about 20 minutes. The great thing is there's no other stops when you're at Jambo House except for the DTD bus which goes to Kidani before leaving. I have no complaints about the bus service.

    You're going to love CL, it is wonderful :cloud9:

    Then this is the "real" deal... no chatting! I find the names of the threads confusing, I am sorry to say.

    I've found at the end of the day/park closing, getting back to any resort takes a long time. No matter how hard they try, several thousand people all headed to the same handful of places is going to go slow.

    We've taken to either leaving about 30 minutes before park close or waiting an hour after to go to the bus stop. I figure I would rather wait in a park for that hour than standing in line for the bus. We pull up some bench with a treat and wait it out. We've found over the years a lot of the shops will stay open after the official closing time so you wouldn't have problems getting ice cream or popcorn or something. And the cast members don't bother you until after a good hour or so.

    Are guests allowed to use the pools at Jambo and Kidani? Or just the one where you're staying?

    We just checked out and had a wonderful stay! Only downside was that the Jambo pool was under construction & closed for the last few days of our stay - disappointing since we didn't expect it and could hear the construction from our pool-view room, but everything else about the stay was fantastic! Love AKL!!

    You can use either as long as it is not up to capacity.
