    We are staying at OKW with our DVC points. We plan to spend a day at AKL, (we have dinning reservations). Can we pool hop? I noticed in a previous question is was stated that AKL were on the prohibited list, but checking the list I do not see any AKL on it

    "Welcome Home," Jamie! Thanks for coming back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm excited to see that your Magical vacation is THIS MONTH!

    As a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member, I love that you're taking advantage of the Member Benefits like pool hopping! I am happy to see that both pools at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Jambo House and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village are not on the excluded list. Since the list indicates it's subject to change, I would recommend double-checking this page right before you leave. 

    Jamie, I took a similar trip where our "home" base was Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, but then we dined at Sanaa and enjoyed spending time at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Beyond relaxing poolside, I encourage you to check out the Recreation Calendar posted in the lobby. My husband and I were able to Meet a Savanna Guide and talk about the animals! We were amazed at how many free offerings were available. While I can't guarantee what offerings will be posted on the day you're visiting, I recommend taking a look. 

    Jamie, I hope this helps as you are gearing up and starting to pack for your upcoming trip. Best wishes for an unforgettable vacation. Come back and see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions!
