    I will be traveling to Disney the first week of April and staying at AKL. Just wondering what the pool hours are for this resort.

    Hi Jennifer. Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's so nice to see you again!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is my daughter's favorite Disney Resort hotel! It's majestic! The magic of Disney combined with the grandeur of incredible animals! Oh! I'm so excited for you! 

    You are going to love the pools at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! You will feel as if you are in a tropical oasis! From zero-depth entry points to amazing water slides - there is something for everyone! I checked with a Cast Member and during the month of April, the pools will be open from 10:00 am - 8:00 pm so you will have plenty of time to enjoy some fun in the sun! The hours are subject to change so be sure to confirm the times when you arrive.

    Make sure you pop into Zawadi Marketplace while you are enjoying your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. You will find everything from sundries and snacks to Disney merchandise and fantastic African-themed art and souvenirs. This is one of my favorite shops at Walt Disney World Resort because it not only features many of my favorite Disney souvenirs but also themed items I can take home to help me remember my magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I'm so excited for you! Thanks for sharing your question with us and let us know if you need any other tips or information as you plan your vacation. 

    Your will be at Walt Disney World Resort before you know it! Enjoy every magical moment!
