    Exactly which of the 3 resorts at Animal Kingdom, sleeps 5, 2 bathrooms and washer & dryer. Normally we stay in the 1 bedroom villa at Bay Lake so I am looking for a comparable room to that?

    Howdy Teresa!

    You will want to reserve a 1-Bedroom Villa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. Bay Lake Tower is one of our Disney Vacation Club Home Resorts and we stayed at Kidani Village this past May so I can tell you that without a doubt, Kidani Village meets the requirements you have set for your Villa. (I have never stayed at Jambo House but per a Cast Member at Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Jambo House 1-Bedroom Villas do not have the additional bathroom.)

    The 1-Bedroom Villas at Kidani Village include 1 king bed and 1 queen-size sleeper sofa as well as 1 twin-size sleeper chair. They sleep up to 5 and include 2 full bathrooms and a washer and dryer (just like Bay Lake Tower).

    Are you Disney Vacation Club Members?  If so, fabulous!!  I'm so glad you are thinking about maximizing your Membership by enjoying other DVC Resorts!!  If not, you might want to consider it based on your travel habits.  Disney Vacation Club puts the world at your doorsteps with access to hundreds of resorts worldwide.  You also have access to the great Disney Vacation Clubs, such as Bay Lake Tower, which you are already familiar with.  If you need more information, visit the Disney Vacation Club website or call a Guide at (800) 500-3990.  There is no high pressure sales.  They will simply provide you with the information you need regarding a DVC Membership so that you can make the best decision for your family.

    As you continue planning your vacation, please let me know if you need any further information.  You are going to love Animal Kingdom Lodge!  It is truly magnificent!  It's a vacation in a vacation!!  

    Thanks so much for your question and have a magical day!!
