    Can I use the villa pool at Animal Kingdom lodge if I am staying in the regular hotel?

    Hi Mary!

    This is a controversial subject as pool hopping is generally not allowed.  However, in this case both Jambo House and Kidani Village are considered to be two parts of the same resort:  Animal Kingdom Lodge.  Several panelists have had no problems using both pools before. 

    I also called the Animal Kingdom Lodge recently and was told that guests staying at Jambo House, which has both regular guest rooms and Disney Vacation Club rooms, can use any of the amenities at either Jambo House or the new Kidani Village. That includes the Samawati Springs Pool and the children interactive water-play area called Uwanja Camp at Kidani Village. This is a standing policy and had nothing to do with the recent refurbishment of the main pool at Jambo House.

    Both Jambo House and Kidani Village have great pools. Enjoy planning your trip and write back if you have any more questions!
