    When will Art of Animation Big Blue Pool be closed?

    Hello, Dianna,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Isn't it wonderful knowing Walt Disney World is Returning to a World of Magic? And for me, one of the most magical spots is Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  When my family visits the resort, we feel as if we have stepped right into a beloved Disney film!  I love that we can visit the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, the savannas of Africa, Radiator Springs, and even the mysterious world found under the sea. 

    I spoke to a cast member to check on the status of the pools at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. The resort is currently scheduled to open on August 12, 2020; and at this time, they are unsure which pool or pools will be open.   Prior to the closure of Walt Disney World, there had been a renovation scheduled for the Big Blue Pool in the fall of 2020.  There are no current updates on the status of this renovation.  As we get closer to the opening date of the resort, I'd encourage you to check the Disney's Art of Animation Resort home page and the Disney Parks Blog for news and updates. 

    If you are visiting in the near future, I'd encourage you to take a look at the Disney Resort Hotels: Know Before You Go to know the extra health and safety features Walt Disney World is providing guests.   You will also want to make sure and make your theme park reservations beforehand through the Disney Park Pass system.   

    Wishing you a wonderful trip!  Please let us know if you have any further questions. -Kara
