    When is Samawati pool closed for refurbishment?

    Hi Brenda! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village will be here in no time at all! I absolutely LOVE this Disney Resort hotel, mostly thanks to the quiet calm that it offers. It feels like it is a world away from the busy theme parks when really it is right around the corner. And of course, waking up to a giraffe right outside your room is pretty spectacular!

    The current information on the Walt Disney World website states that the Samawati Springs Pool will be closed for refurbishment from January 2022 through April 2022. During the refurbishment period, Guests can enjoy Uzima Springs Pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House. Since it looks like your trip is planned for next month, you should be all set to enjoy it!

    Make sure you have a meal (or two!) at Sanaa during your stay. There is nothing quite like eating a delicious and unique meal as animals graze the savanna right outside the window! Even the Sanaa Kuamsha Breakfast is a treat and one of our favorite meals during our last stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village.

    I hope this helps, Brenda! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
