    Hello! Do you know when the Beach Club will be closed in January 2025? We are looking to book over marathon weekend!

    Hello Nicole!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you stopped by with a question for us today. Let's sink our toes in the sand, grab a refreshing beverage, and dig into the details together.

    Stormalong Bay is an experience like no other, featuring a sand-bottomed pool, lazy river, multiple whirlpool spas, and one of the highest waterslides on property. I've had the pleasure of splashing down there twice before and was equally thrilled floating along in my inner tube as I was zipping down the slide. As you know, this aquatic wonderland is scheduled for a lengthy refurbishment next year. I've factored the closure into my own family's summer vacation plans, so I fully appreciate why you'd like to squeeze in a last-minute soak before the refurbishment, if possible. 

    I reached out to a Cast Member regarding the start date for this maintenance period but unfortunately, they did not have a specific date for me to mark on my calendar aside from January 2025. I know this might make planning your Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend more difficult, but please know that the leisure pools at Disney's Beach Club Resort as well as those at its sister property Disney's Yacht Club Resort will remain available for guest enjoyment during this time. This won't be the same sand-bottomed experience, but you'll still be able to cool off and float along as you rest those post-race legs. 

    I recommend grabbing a celebratory cocktail from Hurricane Hanna's Waterside Bar and Grill or maybe even a milkshake from the to-go window at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop to further enhance the relaxation. If you're really up for a challenge grab a few friends to tackle the Kitchen Sink. You'll need to replenish your calories after all that running!

    Nicole, I'm sorry I don't have more specific details for you today but feel free to come back and see us again as your visit nears. I'm hopeful we'll get more information on the pool's maintenance as it's set to begin.

    Wishing you sun, fun, and many magical miles next year!

    Magic and memories,
