    My reservation for a family of 5 is for a 2 bedroom lock-off at AKL Jambo House. One BR has a king bed and the other a queen bed and a sleeper sofa. Would I be able to request that the sleeper sofa in the queen room be replaced with another queen bed?

    Hello Valerie!

    As the mother of four, I know all about the need for flexible sleeping arrangements. My teenagers definitely do not enjoy sharing a sleeping space with each other! One of the many reasons we became Disney Vacation Club Members was that we wanted more room for everyone to be able to spread out and relax.

    All of the 2 Bedroom Villas at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas -Jambo House are the lock-off style. As you mentioned, the second bedroom will have both a queen-sized bed and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. Switching out the sleeper sofa for a regular bed is not something that can be accommodated. Have you considered booking a dedicated 2 Bedroom Villa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village? The dedicated style 2 Bedroom Villas would have two beds in the second bedroom rather than the sleeper sofa and would solve that problem for you. I’m not sure when you are traveling so I can’t check availability for you, but if your trip is still a few months in the future, you might still find availability at Kidani Village.

    Pro Tip: Since you are staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas, make sure you head down to The Mara quick-service for a bite, and try my favorite dessert, Zebra Domes. These little bites of deliciousness can only be found at this resort and they are a must-do for me on every stay!

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions before your visit, Valerie, we are here to help!
