Jambo House Villas are now Open With Limited Amenities
I recently did an online chat with Member Services and found that the Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas – Jambo House are now OPEN! However, there will not be much available while you are staying there.
While talking to Member Services today they shared that the only amenity that would be open would be the Uzima Pool. No shopping and dining will be available at Jambo House. I was encouraged to check back frequently on the My Disney Experience App for the most up-to-date information.
Guests will need to board the internal shuttle to Kidani Village to access dining and shopping.
Front Desk Closed
Along with dining and shopping being closed, there will be no Cast Members at the front desk. Guests are encouraged to do Mobile Check-In through the My Disney Experience App. If guests are wishing to visit the front desk while staying at Jambo House Villas they must travel to Kidani Village to speak with a Cast Member.
