    Hubby and I would like to start planning our 2022 WDW stay, but we only want to stay at Jambo House. When will it be open?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Jeanie! It's great to see you hEAR again planning ahead for 2022!

    Jeanie, like you, I am always in some stage of planning a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth so I appreciate this question. 

    Jeanie, anytime I'm able to talk about Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, my mind quickly pulls up the soundtrack to the Lion King as we all first watched the sun peeking above the horizon. This resort, with its amazing animals and cultural immersion, truly embodies all that special about the Walt Disney World Resort and I understand your desire to call Jambo House your home away from home. 

    Jeanie, unfortunately at this time we don't yet have a projected date when all of the offerings at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge will open up and welcome guests. If a stay at Jambo House is all that your heart desires, my best recommendation would be to keep a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog as Simba's trusty advisor, Zazu, will often fly announcements over to that platform first.

    Jeanie, if you find yourself considering booking Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village, I will share that my family and I stayed here just this past August and loved this side of the resort. We adore dining at Sanaa and were so happy to still see the Cast Members at the animal overlooks, answering questions and interacting with guests. 

    Jeanie, whenever you're able to return to the Magic and wherever you decide to stay, I wish you a trip worthy of the title, King of the Jungle. If you have any additional questions, I hope you'll come on back and see us here at planDisney. 

    Hakuna Matata!
