    Hi, I'm coming to stay at the Yacht Club in 41 days for 3 weeks (so excited!) and was just wondering if you could tell me the likely opening hours for Stormalong Bay then, the last week of October through to the middle of November.

    Thanks for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Charlotte!

    Three whole weeks at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort sounds like a dream come true! You will absolutely love this amazing Walt Disney World Resort hotel and all of its amenities, but I think Stormalong Bay is the best pool in all of Walt Disney World Resort

    You’ll be happy to hear that Stormalong Bay should continue its current hours of operation (from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m.) during your visit. Of course, hours are always subject to change without notice (and Stormalong Bay may close for inclement weather), but I’m sure you’ll have lots of opportunities to take advantage of all it has to offer during your three-week stay. Personally, I love the lazy river and the sandy-bottom pool the best (and I think the whole area is downright magical after the sun goes down). Take some time to wander around and explore the area, though. There’s a great gazebo upstairs with a pool table (and a great view of the fireworks from Disney’s Hollywood Studios), as well as lots of spots to soak up some sun or just curl up with a good book. 

    Make sure you wear your MagicBand when you head to the pool, as you’ll need it to enter the area. There’s no need to worry about towels, though, as they’re provided free of charge at poolside. Do make sure you grab some sunscreen, though, if you’ll be enjoying Stormalong Bay during the day. Should you need to purchase some, it’s available at the sundries shop adjacent to The Market and Ale & Compass.

    Enjoy your Magical vacation, Charlotte! Please let us know if there are any other questions we can answer prior to your arrival.
