What a week for Disney news, huh? A few menu cuts, Disneyland delays reopening, and now this!? Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House has just been removed from the official listing of reopening resorts. Thus, withdrawing their formerly announced reopening for July 10th, 2020.

The resort has also been eliminated from the listing of resorts accepting reservations for 2021.

Why, you ask? We haven’t the slightest idea. An official statement has yet to be made regarding the sudden change or plans. However, in all fairness, Disney did previously state that their dates could always change. So, there’s that.

No Reopening Date or 2021 Availability

  • All-Star Resorts (Movies, Music & Sports)
  • Disney’s Port Orleans Resort (French Quarter & Riverside)
  • Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (except for DVC)

While Jambo House may not be reopening at this time, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Villas remains available. So, don’t despair! You can still bid the giraffes a hearty ‘JAMBO!’ from afar.
