    Hi, I'll be staying at AKL in December. Can AKL guests use Kidani amenities, including the pool? I'm not a DVC member.

    Jambo Blanche!

    You are in for a wild vacation at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! You must be very excited.

    I'm thrilled to share with you that as a Guest at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, you will have access to both Uzima Pool, located just outside your Lodge, as well as the impressive and fun Samawati Springs Pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. Keep in mind that you will need to wear your MagicBand for access because there is a locked gate to enter the area.

    Be sure to bring your sunscreen, because I believe you will be spending quite a bit of time enjoying these two incredible swimming pools! 

    Come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions, Blanche. We love to help.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
