    I'm taking my family to WDW in late November 2018! Is there a hot tub at Saratoga Springs (for my parents)? Is the splash pad at SS heated for my toddler? Is planning to go in the pool realistic for this this time of year?

    Hi Rita,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for bringing us your question. I love visiting Walt Disney World with my extended family, and I just know you are going to have an amazing time together, especially in November, when holiday magic is in the air.

    Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is a wonderful location for a family vacation, with so many fabulous amenities around the resort and Disney Springs a quick walk or boat ride away. It sounds like your family likes to vacation just like mine, with lots of pool and hot tub time! Your parents will be able to enjoy the hot tub at either the High Rock Spring Pool or the Paddock Pool. Both pools have fantastic water play areas for your toddler, and I confirmed with a Cast Member that the splash areas are heated just like the pool water – year-round, to between 80 and 84 degrees. 

    Rita, while I don’t have Elsa’s weather-control powers, I can tell you that I was at Walt Disney World in late November last year, and the weather was gorgeous. I regretted not bringing my swimsuit, and seriously considered buying one! There were lots of people splashing and having a blast in the pool every day I was there. Of course, weather is unpredictable, so there’s a chance you’ll find it’s cool during your visit, but my family will swim in any weather at Disney!

    Have fun making magical memories with your family, Rita. How wonderful to be able to enjoy festive holiday fun and then return to your resort for a little pool and sun time! Sounds perfectly dreamy to me.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
