    We are coming to Disney Animal Kingdom lodge jambo house on July 1 2023. My sons birthday and day after the July 2nd daughter in-laws birthday. Anyway to set up door to welcome them on their birthday? We have never done this. We have reservations and them

    Jambo, Tammy!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney! How wonderful that you are working on the "mane event" for your son's and daughter-in-law's birthdays at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House Villas. They will feel like a king and queen staying at this wonderfully immersive Resort, where animals are free to roam around all day and free to do it all their own way in the savannah.  It's also so wonderful that you want to give them a great big roar to celebrate their special day!

    Tammy, you can order a special gift pack to be delivered to their room using Disney Floral & Gifts.  Now, I do need to tell you and the rest of the kingdom that beginning Aug. 27, 2023, Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort have the option to begin placing their orders through a new vendor, Florida Fresh Floral.  However, because your visit is before this change takes place on August 27th, you can continue to go through Disney Floral & Gifts to place your order.  

    I just did this for my very own twin cubs' birthday and for my husband for Father's Day, where he was treated like a king, also at Jambo House.  It is very simple to do.  I recommend perusing the site for either a gift basket, treat package, balloons or flowers that seems to be the right fit.  The options range and there are some with banners and even one with specialty beers so your son won't have to go down to the local watering hole.  You can even add cupcakes and plushies, and make it as modest or as grand as you like.  You can place the order online to be delivered on your requested date to your hotel.  If there is no alcohol in the gift, it can be delivered right to the room and if there is, they will contact you to come to the lobby to retrieve the gift and show valid ID.

    If you do not see exactly what you want online, you can call the Dream Maker Team at Disney Floral & Gifts who can assist you. In fact, I wanted to add a little extra grub to my cubs' gift baskets and the Dream Maker Team was able to add items I didn't see on the website.  They are like your own personal Rafiki to help and guide you on your selection.  

    On the day of delivery, if your package doesn't arrive as expected, be sure and check with the Front Desk. Sometimes these get sent to Kidani Village instead or are in a backroom.  I recommend letting the Front Desk team know on your arrival you are expecting this special delivery for your son and daughter-in-law.  

    I hope this helps you, Tammy! If you have any further questions about your upcoming Disney vacation, trek back here and see me. All you've got to do is look left, then you've got to look right. I'll be right here, standing in the spotlight!

    Asante Sana,
