    When staying at The Animal Kingdom Villas if you arrive before the 4:00 check in time, are you allowed to use the pools?

    Hi Heather,

    I love Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village.  Both are beautifully decorated, and being able to look out of a window at your resort and see animals such as giraffes and zebras is amazing!  They also both have wonderful pool areas.

    Absolutely you can take a dip in the pool if you arrive before check-in time.  I suggest that you do check-in at the front desk whenever you arrive just to see if your villa is ready.  If it is not, you can store your luggage at Bell Services and head over to the pool.  Since you plan to swim when you arrive, be sure that your swim gear is easily accessible in your luggage.  If you are using Disney's Magical Express transportation from Orlando International Airport, be sure to pack your swim gear in your carry-on bags, as your luggage may arrive at your resort after you do.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Heather.  Have a great time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
