    Hello to all. My family and I are staying at the Grand Floridian DVC Villas 7/26-7/29 and we're wondering if the Beach Pool hours are going to be extended due to Courtyard Pool being exclusively for the NBA guests during that time? Thanks.

    Magical greetings to you, Andrea! 

    It’s a great day to see you here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    I am so excited to hEAR you and your team are returning home to The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The elegance of this Resort hotel is unparalleled; with extra space to spread out and just-like-home amenities, not to mention, you’re just a monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom Park! Speaking of Magic Kingdom, I heard Cinderella was getting ready to play basketball but needed a timeout because her Coach was a pumpkin!  

    Andrea, the Beach Pool, which is located near the white-sand shore of Seven Seas Lagoon, is spectacular! My little Mouseketeers and I love the waterslide as it slam dunks us into the pool! I needed an assist so I spoke with a Cast Member who told me Feature Pools such as the Beach Pool will operate with reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing. As of right now, the magic maker told me the hours are set for 9:00 p.m. until the buzzer goes off. If it does change, the hours will be posted for Guests to see.  

    I’m net joking when I tell you about how excited I am to return to the magic, myself, Andrea. I encourage you to keep checking the Walt Disney World Resort Operations page for all the current updates for your upcoming vacation!

    Andrea, I hoop you have the most splash-tacular time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
