    We are arriving 2 weeks today :banana::banana::banana: and doing a split stay. Although it would be great if our rooms our ready when we arrive I am not planning on that. DD will want to hit the pool first thing. Do all the the pools have a place to change? Thanks:)

    No lockers, but there is a restroom area where you can change.

    If you tell us the resort, those that have stayed there can help you. They are all a bit different.

    OK, I've stayed at both. WL was quite a few years ago. I don't remember anything close to the pool. Hopefully, someone with a more current stay can help.

    BC has a bathroom in a very wet area near the main pool. I wouldn't change here, you'd get wet. There is a bathroom inside the building sortof near the restaurant. You can change here, but it's just a bathroom, not a locker room. There is a health club w/ locker rooms. I'm not sure what the policy is for resort guests.

    Now if you were staying at AKL, they have a wonderful locker room w/ nice showers near the pool. :lovestruc With so many people taking late flights, they really need more locker rooms in the pool areas.

    Enjoy your trip.

    I believe guests of BC can use the health club and lockers at no charge.

    I don't remember WL having lockers. Just bathrooms off the lobby, but they also have a health club(Sturdy Branches) in The Villas, and think guests can use that too for changing.

    I know the locker area/bathroom by the pool at some resorts requires a key card to prevent pool hopping so you will need to check in and get your KTTW cards.

    Which resorts require such a key card? I am familir with the locker area/bathrooms located at the AKL and the GF and neither of them require a key card for access.

    AKL Jambo pool restrooms do have keyed locks but they seem to randomly be off or on. We've had both situations in the same trip.

    That's odd. I have stayed at AKL several times and used the restrooms by the pool numerous times. I have never had to use a key card to access the restrooms.
