    We are arriving on an early morning flight and will be at our resort (Animal Kingdom) well before noon. Can we use the pool and facilities while we wait for our room ? I am planning to check in online prior to arrival.

    Hello Vera!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  When arriving at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, since you will have done online check-in,  you will be directed to the appropriate counter where you will pick up your information packet, room keys, etc.   If you are very, very lucky, your room may be ready for you, but likely you will have to wait.  In that case, you will be sent a text with your room number when it becomes available.  In the meantime, you are welcome to leave your bags or luggage if you have it, with Bell Services, and you may then utilize all of the facilities at the resort or even head off to one of the theme parks if you'd like.  There are changing facilities and towels at the pool, so be sure to pack your swimsuits in your carry-on bags.

    I hope you find this information helpful and would be happy to answer any more questions you have while planning your Walt Disney World vacation.  Have a magical day!
