Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House Reopening July 10th

In what we hope is the last in our series of articles surrounding Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House, or as we’ve named it, #JAMBOGATE – Disney has announced the reopening dates for Select Non-DVC Walt Disney World Resorts. 

According to this announcement, Jambo House will reopen on July 10th, 2020, as part of Walt Disney World’s phased reopening. This concludes (hopefully) three long weeks of speculation surrounding plans for the resort.  

Also important to note as part of this announcement are the planned reopening dates of the hotel side of many of the mixed-use Disney Vacation Club Properties. 

DVC Members with affected reservations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House, prior to July 10th, are encouraged to contact Member Services at (800) 800-9800 if they have questions about their upcoming travel plans.

All Disney Vacation Club Resorts at Walt Disney World will reopen on Monday, June 22nd. With the resort side of these properties closed, guests may be in for a treat with lower crowds at the resort pools and recreational areas.  This news, however, also likely confirms the closure of Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts until at least August 24th.

Stay tuned this week for updates from Pete and the team as they cover the reopening of the Disney Vacation Club properties from Bay Lake Tower!

As always, be sure to also follow along on DVC Fan, the DVC Fan Facebook Group, and The DIS for more news and information as it becomes available.

  • Confused, Wednesday AKL-Jambo House wasn’t opening, now it is opening! Inquiring minds are confused!

    • It is not opening today with the other DVC properties, however no information was given until now regarding when the resort would reopen.

  • Will the Kilimanjaro Club Concierge services still be available? We have an upcoming reservation but don’t want to use the extra points if Disney has suspended club level services.
