    which hotel is better villas at wilderness lodge or jambo house family of 5, 2 adult 2 teens 1 toddler.

    Welcome Home Manuel!

    This is such a tough question! Both The Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House are completely immersive experiences. Both offer lobbies of jaw-dropping beauty, Both are tranquil escapes after a busy day exploring the thrills of the theme parks. 

    A major advantage to a stay at The Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is boat transportation to Disney's Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Contemporary Resort, providing quick access to the monorail for a transfer to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. So selecting this location would allow easy access to all of the entertainment and dining venues in the Magic Kingdom Park area.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House has the obvious benefit of stunning animals living, eating, and playing just beyond of your windows. Your toddler might love the sights from your private balcony while you will enjoy a quiet morning sipping your coffee just feet away from Zebras. There is nothing like it!

    With this said, considering the exciting construction projects currently underway at the Villas at Disney's Widerness Lodge, if the view from your Disney Vacation Club Villa is more important to you than a quick ride to Magic Kingdom Park, I would chose Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House. 

    Come back and visit with any additional questions, Manuel!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
