We have done kidani and bwv with at the time 1 yo or 18 month old

Kidani wins hands down. Tons more going on in the water play area. Plus the zero entry was great.

Bwv. Think round pool with a foot or two deep and that was it. we made it work and he had fun but he enjoyed kidani much more

We are checking out BLT this year.

Dont forget to grab a life jacket for your kid.

It is definitely smaller. and it is not very deep - another words it was build for toddlers and kids - not adults

think the deep part is like 3' - it does have zero entry - the HC entrance (which is not needed because of zero entry) - is what the little kids use for a slide and the lifeguards let them. So the bigger slide is not the only one.

really think your little one would love BLT - although Kidani is nice too.

now you might be disappointed in the pool at BLT - but it was not designed for adults or it would be deeper.

now if you want to swim go to the CR - it is nice and deep!

I would say definitely SSR. The paddock pool has a nice zero entry area where your little one can sit and play in the water. Plus the water play area has nice little spots where he can sit and play.

Our daughter also loved the splash pad at BLT. There were plenty of chairs too to sit and watch and the view of bay lake was gorgeous!!!

It's July and it's a small pool. And the only pool at Kidani, plus guests are permitted to come over from Jambo House. It is busy.

Most of the pools are packed, as are the water parks.

WE were at Kidani in early August last year. It is small and very packed. Not a lot of chairs either...glad we tried it but probably won't go back. The one thing we did like was the movies by the pool at night. Pool is small enough to offer a great view. Ok... all this talk makes me want to blow off Aulani and go to WDW!

Is the pool at BLT bigger than Kidani's pool?
