    We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge and my girls love to swim; I saw one pool mentioned in the description and then there was mention of another with a bigger slide. Is the pool with the bigger slide for villa guests only?

    Hi Angie!

    Animal Kingdom Lodge and Port Orleans are the only two resorts on property that, in a sense, allow pool hopping between different sections of the same resort.  At Animal Kingdom Lodge, you can enjoy the main pool at Jambo House and the pool at Kidani Village.  Likewise, at Port Orleans, guests staying in Riverside can use the pool at French Quarter, and the opposite is also true.

    Pool hopping is not allowed between different resorts and you will see that clearly at various places on the internet.  However, in your case, Jambo House and Kidani Village are seen as part of the same resort:  Animal Kingdom Lodge.  I reconfirmed this with the resort directly this evening.

    Enjoy planning and have a magical vacation!
