in case this hasnt been mentioned, akl jambo house is fully unavailable for booking until further notice, confirmed by two member services reps i spoke to at dvc today. the website hasnt allowed any jambo house rooms to be booked for the past few days FOR THE ENTIRE REMAINDER OF 2020, which seems crazy at the moment. a cast member confirmed today that jambo house will not be opening with the rest of the dvc resorts on 6/22. i dont know anything else. i did hear the nba was confirmed for coronado springs. not sure where MLS is staying. taking up dvc rooms would be really ****ty though since the inventory of points is already being flooded by people being able to bank points that would have otherwise expired. dvc members should be getting pretty irritated at this point, but maybe they arent because a significant portion are nervous to travel this year. who knows.
1. At this point, it could simply be that Jambo is not opening up with the rest, and that they don’t have an opening date yet.
2. I don’t have the figures for the number of points that Disney own at AKL, but is also possible that Disney’s share does mean they can take all the rooms (or all the remaining rooms) at Jambo using their points.
If either 1 or 2 is the explanation, it sucks for members who would prefer to stay at Jambo rather than Kidani but I think it would be legally permitted.
If however the figures don’t stack up, then it would contravene the terms of ownership and I think there are AKL owners who would seriously consider a legal challenge.
