    Do we need to take beach towels to a resort for use at the pools?

    Hi Rhonda,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted to answer this question because pool time is one of my favorite times when we vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    You can certainly bring your own beach towels but there are towels at the pool area for Walt Disney World resort hotel guests. We hit the pool, grab our pool towels and then find some chairs. If you do bring your own towels, it might be easier to spot your pool chairs in a sea of pool chairs because my experience has been that the pool towels provided are a standard white. 

    I am so glad to hear that you are planning for pool time. My family loves to hit the parks in the morning and then head back to the resort for pool time in the afternoon. During our last trip in July, the sun was fierce. Even though we reapplied sunscreen regularly, one of our daughters still looked like she was on the verge of getting a sunburn on her cheeks. Since we often go in the summer, I am accustomed to the summer heat, but on this last trip, I was a little surprised at the intensity of the sun while we were there. If you forget your sunscreen, they do sell it on property.

    Rhonda, I hope you have a safe journey and a trip filled with unexpected pixie dust!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
