    I have a reservation for the Animal Kingdom Lodge checking in on April 23rd. Do you know if the pool will be completed at Kidani?

    Hi there, Linda!

    Welcome to planDisney - thanks so much for stopping by with your question about the Samawati Springs Pool located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. This unique Resort is one of my absolute favorites - it truly is unlike any other place at Walt Disney World Resort!

    I can confirm with you that this pool is currently temporarily unavailable due to refurbishment, and the scheduled refurbishment period is "through" April 2022. I also called and spoke to a Cast Member, but they didn't have any additional information for us. I've experienced a lot of refurbishments during my Disney planning and travels, and I can tell you that things don't always go according to plan. I've seen some projects wrap up much earlier than scheduled (let's hope for this), and some that end up taking just a bit more pixie dust than originally planned.

    I know this pool is a special place, and that you'll be a bit bummed if it is still unavailable during your stay. No matter what, you will still have access to the Uzima Springs Pool at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House. If you're planning to spend a lot of time at the pool, I would suggest asking a Cast Member at the Front Desk if you can be located in a Guest Room with a shorter walking distance to the Uzima Springs Pool. Or, you could always decide to spend a day at North America's largest wave pool at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park!

    I know this isn't the specific answer you wanted, but I hope these ideas can help you plan for any scenario. Have a magical trip!
