    I would like to know if all resort pools have fences around them with restricted hours. the fence at all star music last year was a disappointment since we always drank our coffee beside it before venturing into the parks

    Hi there, Sharon! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Sharon, I love nothing more than a peaceful cup of coffee in the morning, especially at Walt Disney World Resort, where I can relax and soak up the sunshine while I caffeinate. 

    To the best of my knowledge, each pool at the Walt Disney World Resort is fenced and has published operating hours that vary by season. 

    Sharon, even if you are up before the pool areas are officially open, most resorts have some amazing coffee drinking spots.  If you are interested in staying at a value resort, both Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort have some benches that look out towards Hourglass Lake. This is such an amazing spot to finish your coffee before you meander over to the Disney Skyliner to be whisked away for a magical day at the parks. If you are interested in staying in a Moderate resort, I love relaxing on the beach at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort before I start my day. Additionally, each Deluxe and Deluxe Villa resort has rooms with balconies, which you can easily turn into your own personal cafe, thanks to the in-room coffee maker stocked with Joffrey's coffee. 

    I hope that this helped, Sharon. Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help you select a resort or if we can answer any other questions as you plan your magical vacation. 

    See you real soon!
