    I am a long time visitor throughout my childhood, being 23 now, i am still unsure about something regarding the pools. After the life guards are gone for the night are the pools closed? or just ‘use at your own risk’? We are planning our next trip!

    Hiya Angela! Welcome to planDisney! It's great to have you stop by!

    As many times as I have visited the Walt Disney World Resort, there are always new things that I learn each and every trip. This is one of the reasons why I love coming back time after time, there is just so much to experience while you are there. My family recently tried out the Winter Summerland Miniature Golf for the first time and I'm so happy that we did! We found a fun, family activity to do outside of the parks and resorts!

    Speaking of fun activities, my daughters love swimming at the Disney Resorts Hotels every time we visit. Most resorts will have a feature pool that is usually close to the main lobby. There will also be a few smaller pools throughout the resort if Guests prefer a quieter experience. The feature pools will usually have lifeguards and Cast Members that are monitoring the Guests that are swimming. There will be posted pool hours here and Guests will not be able to use these pools once they are closed.

    The leisurely pools are usually spread out throughout the resorts to give easier access for Guests not staying close to the main building. They are also typically much less crowded, which some Guests prefer. These pools will usually not have lifeguards but may have designated pool hours. If so, a Cast Member will come by to lock the gates at closing time and unlock them when the pool reopens in the morning. You may find a few of these leisurely pools at certain resorts that are 24 hours, but that will be dependent upon the resort. Hours are subject to change at any time, so your best bet will be to check with the resort upon arrival.

    Angela, I hope this information helps you plan for your upcoming stay! With a September visit, you should get plenty of pool time during your trip!

    Happy planning!
