    Are life jackets currently available at Disney Contemporary resort swimming pools?

    Welcome to planDisney, Cynthia!

    In just a few short short weeks, you'll be soaking up the magic at Walt Disney World Resort and enjoying all The World's Most Magical Celebration has to offer. Picture yourself standing right in the middle of Main Street, U.S.A looking down toward Cinderella Castle, gearing up for a fun-filled day at Magic Kingdom Park. Do you feel the excitement building? I bet you're counting down the days until you're on your way.

    I think the first things that come to mind when people think of Walt Disney World Resort are the four AMAZING theme parks on property. While the theme parks are definitely a huge part of vacationing here, Walt Disney World Resort also boasts more than 20 top-notch Disney Resorts Collection hotels. Each of these Resort hotels has its own unique theming and assortment of on-site amenities, recreational activities and dining options.

    Disney's Contemporary Resort is the perfect place to stay during the 50th Anniversary Celebration, because it is one of the original Walt Disney World Resort hotels. This means Disney's Contemporary Resort just celebrated its own 50th birthday in October 2021 too! For this momentous occasion, not only did the Resort's lobby just receive a stunning makeover featuring even more Mary Blair inspired flair, but the Resort rooms are receiving an "incredible" makeover as well. With its close proximity and walkway to Magic Kingdom Park, on-site Resort Monorail station, delicious dining offerings, and Resort amenities and recreational activities, I think you will love every second at your magical home away from home.

    I'm glad you stopped by with this oh-so important question about life jackets. I know your little one must be eager to dive in at the Resort's Feature Pool & water play area or one of the other pools on property, but I also know your momma heart needs to know they're as safe as can be. I am happy to report that life jackets are provided at all Disney Resorts Collection hotels, including Disney's Contemporary Resort. Plus, subject to availability and pool hours, lifeguards are present as well. This means you can relax knowing your child is safe, and your little one can splash the day away.

    Don't forget to stop by the Front Desk at your Resort hotel upon arrival to ask for an activities guide to see what other fun recreational offerings they have. You might even be able to enjoy a Movies Under the Stars night and watch a Disney film together as a family.

    I hope this puts your mind at ease, Cynthia, and I hope you enjoy every moment of your magical vacation, whether it's spent poolside or flying off to Neverland.

    Just keep swimming,
