    Just heard from someone in another thread (when discussing room/location specifics) that the AKL-Jambo House smoking area may have moved. Specifically, the one behind the bar may have been moved to a spot behind the hot tub closest to the health club.

    They said they noted this when visiting about 3 weeks ago.

    All the maps I can find, including the one on Disney's own site, indicate the areas are still in the previous positions (behind the pool bar, near the Jiko/Boma entrance, and between the bus stop and the lobby). Has anyone seen/heard otherwise?

    Thanks!

    they are corret. we were there in aug. there are only 2. the one in thef ront, and the one back behind the hot tub. as you exit the bldg. near boma/jiko and face the pool, you walk to the right, al the way back.

    Did you happen to notice if the maps, on site, were updated to reflect the change?

    The ones on the Disney web site definitely are not.

    We just got back on Saturday. I can't find my resort map but PPs are correct that there are only 2 smoking sections. The one in front is a little off to the right as you are walking down to the bus stop. The other one is back behind the hot tub, go to the left for the playground and the right for the smoking benches. The one in front is completely exposed to the weather and the one in the back has some tree covering. I can tell you that both are a pretty good hike from the Zebra Trail where we stayed. I didn't dare try to smoke anywhere else (esp our balcony overlooking the savanna). Met a lot of really nice people from all over the world :)

    I didn't know where to post this.

    My dad is big cigar smoker. Is there anywhere in WDW or IOA that I can buy him a souvenir cigar?

    I think your best bet would be city walk, if you are over at Islands of Adventure. there may be a cigar bar there, at least I think there used to be. aks this question over on the Universal boards. I'll bet Maccraven has the answer. she knows a lot about universal

    There is a Sosa Family Cigars shop in DTD...it's close to Raglan Road. I've never been in there but it would be a lot easier to get to than going to Universal. Good luck! :tink:

    lisa., even tho it may seem like it sometimes, cigarettes are not illegal!!!;) they cannot and will not take your cigarettes.

    I have brought cigs in my fanny pack and my carry on, on the plane, and cartons in my checked bag.

    jan. will be 2 years since hubby nebo and i quit!!! (on the sme day! and we haven't killed each other!) (yet)

    anyway, I was amazed at how much those stupid dorky fanny packs fit!

    I would squeeze in , sometime 2 packs of cigs, a lighter, my glasses, a brush, some money my tickets. etc etc.

    I dont' care who thinks I'm dorky. I already know that I am!!! so what?

    at music there is a DSA between the lobbyy and the calypso pool (toward the left, facing the lobby). there is a dsa between the piano pool and the jazz section.. there is a DSA picninc bench in the country section.. none in the rock section.. and though it doesn't show it on the map, there was one in the little fenced in park area in the boardwalk section.
