    Arriving to AKL-Kidani Village (first time renting DVC points for a Deluxe!) on the morning of 9/27 before check-in time. Is there a locker room/showers near the pool that I can use if I want to indulge in a morning swim?

    Hiya, Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by planDisney! 

    Jennifer, I'm so excited to hear you'll be staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village. My family and I just returned from a stay at this property and can't wait to book another trip! If time allows in your schedule, make sure to stop by Sanaa for a quick-service style breakfast in the morning or a table-service experience for lunch or dinner. With its gorgeous view and amazing food, Sanaa has become one of my favorite spots to grab a bite to eat... and if you're lucky, you might just be able to enjoy your meal with a very tall new friend. 

    Since you're hoping to start your day with a morning swim, you'll be happy to know there is a restroom located in the pool area near the entrance to the fitness center. As part of the phased reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort, the showers within the restrooms are currently unavailable, but you're still welcome to the use the restroom to change for your swim. On my visit, both the pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village and Jambo House opened at 9:00 AM, but make sure to check the hours upon your arrival. 

    Jennifer, I hope this helps as you are looking ahead to your upcoming visit! Please make sure to come back and see us here at planDisney with any other questions you might have. 

    And remember, as my friends Timon and Pumba would say,
