    We will be staying at the Animal Kingdom Villas. Can my children bring small pool toys, or floating tubes/chairs to keep them occupied in the pool?

    Hi Brittany,

    You have chosen a great resort for hanging out at the pool!  At Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House, you can head to Uzima Pool, with a zero-depth entry and fun waterslide. Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village features Samawati Springs Pool. At Samawati Springs Pool, there is nearby Uwanja Camp, which is a great water play area for children. Either way, the pools at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are amazing.

    My family and I like to spend part of our Walt Disney World vacations relaxing by the pool. We find that this is a great way to relax as a family. We do always take small pool toys with us. We have small diving toys and small balls that are soft in texture for playing catch. You may find that if the pool is crowded, lifeguards may ask you not to use certain toys for safety.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Brittany. Have a wonderful time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions!
