Default Jambo House partial opening on July 10

On May 31, I booked a 3-night stay at Jambo House for September. Today (June 1), the DVC website is showing no availability at Jambo House for the rest of 2020.

Any idea what's going on?

Thanks!

There is a rumor on another site that Jambo House is in the running to be used for the NBA teams and staff. Not sure how true it is but thatís what is being posted.

Thanks. It would be a nicer stay for them than Coronado Springs Resort, which is what I've heard is being considered.

Unless those teams and staff are also DVC owners, Iím not okay with them taking our rooms. Just me, but I donít like it.

I'm with you. We're going in late September and wanted Jambo because it's our favorite pool, a great place to relax in the heat and a large pool for social distancing.

I'll see what they switch us to before passing final judgement.

I have a reservation for early November. 4 days in a standard view studio and 2 days in a club level studio. I will be sorely peeved if they take away my club level studio.

Yea I’m with you - I have 7 nights in a club room this November as well. Not sure how they’ll handle that? Can they kick you out and how will they handle this. Curious what would be a comparable room? I mean the views at Kindani are arguably better, but the club benefits are generally why we stay in the club rooms. Guess we’ll wait and see.

Given that Jambo has the better amenities, Iím not cool with them closing it down to DVC guests. 8 donít mind shutting down the rooms and switching DVC guests to Kidani, but I think the lobby, lounge, dining, pool, and shop should be open, especially since either reduced park time, resorts are more important.

If itís an NBA restart and amenities are sealed off, totally not cool.

The uncertainty over Jambo status made it easy to cancel our August ressie.
