    We're DVC members and just booked a stay at Beach Club in January 2025. I noticed that Stormalong Bay will be closed then and only the quiet-pools are open. Stormalong was our favorite thing about Beach Club. Will DVC Pool be back by 2025?

    Hey there, Francis! Welcome to planDisney. I’m so glad you stopped by with your vacation planning question. You’ve got a friend in me, and I’m here to help find the information you’re looking for to make your next Disney Vacation Club adventure as magical as can be. 

    Disney’s Beach Club Villas is one of our family’s favorite DVC resorts, too. We’ve spent many a happy afternoon floating along the lazy river of Stormalong Bay and planning which enormous sundae to savor at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. And the location really can’t be beat! Being able to walk to EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf makes this resort such a great choice. 

    All of the DVC resorts are on a regular schedule of refurbishments to keep things in tip-top shape–and unfortunately, sometimes these renovations interfere with our best-laid vacation plans! We are also visiting Walt Disney World Resort next January and the scheduled Stormalong Bay closure is on my mind as we decide where to stay. I recently spoke with Member Services who confirmed that Guests at the Beach Club will be able to access the three leisure pools at the Beach Club and Disney's Yacht Club Resort--the Admiral, Tidal, and Dunes Cove pools--throughout the renovations. 

    Francis, I wonder if you meant to inquire whether pool hopping for DVC Members is returning in 2025. The Cast Members I spoke with were unable to confirm if Guests at the Beach Club would have access to Luna Park Pool at Disney’s Boardwalk Villas (or other DVC feature pools) while Stormalong Bay is closed. 

    If you choose to try a different DVC resort to guarantee access to a feature pool for your stay, our family loves the Uzima Pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House and the Samawati Springs Pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village

    I hope this information is helpful in planning your 2025 trip "Home", Francis! Thanks for visiting planDisney and please don't hesitate to reach out again if we can help with any other questions. 

    Stay Magical!
