Resort Rooms

Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House is the larger of the two Animal Kingdom Lodge resorts and is the perfect place for traveling groups of all sizes, having standard resort rooms that can accommodate 2 or 4 guests, 1 bedroom villas that sleep up to 5 adults, 2 bedroom villas that sleep up to 8 adults and 3 bedroom grand villas that can sleep up to 12 guests.
