As the Walt Disney World Resort continues to relax pandemic-era protocols — most recently ending its mask mandate for fully vaccinated Guests — more of the Resort is opening. More restaurants, as well as hotels, are opening up at the Most Magical Place on Earth.
On June 15, Disney World announced that the popular Jambo House rooms at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge would be reopening soon and Guests could begin making reservations for Jambo House as early as tomorrow!
As you may know, the Disney Vacation Club villas at Animal Kingdom Lodge have been reopened and Kidani Village has been welcoming Guests. But now, we know that the regular hotel rooms will be reopening this summer.
Disney released the following statement regarding the reopening:
