I've found at the end of the day/park closing, getting back to any resort takes a long time. No matter how hard they try, several thousand people all headed to the same handful of places is going to go slow.

We've taken to either leaving about 30 minutes before park close or waiting an hour after to go to the bus stop. I figure I would rather wait in a park for that hour than standing in line for the bus. We pull up some bench with a treat and wait it out. We've found over the years a lot of the shops will stay open after the official closing time so you wouldn't have problems getting ice cream or popcorn or something. And the cast members don't bother you until after a good hour or so.

Are guests allowed to use the pools at Jambo and Kidani? Or just the one where you're staying?

We just checked out and had a wonderful stay! Only downside was that the Jambo pool was under construction & closed for the last few days of our stay - disappointing since we didn't expect it and could hear the construction from our pool-view room, but everything else about the stay was fantastic! Love AKL!!

You can use either as long as it is not up to capacity.

That shouldn't happen in January, right?
I'm bummed the boys won't have the slide at Jambo, so I was thinking of making one trip over for the pool.

Best way to get there in bathing suits???

they have a van/golf cart that runs between them. But the walk is very easy!

I am sure with the closure of the Jambo Slide, they will make concessions
