    Hi, We will are planning a family vacation at Pop Century in May 2020. I understand that the main pool in the 60’s section will be closed for refurbishment during winter months per the Disney website. Will this pool refurbishment be complete by May 2020?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marisa!

    I’m so happy to hear you’re planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort in May 2020. I stayed at Disney’s Pop Century Resort with a bunch of my best friends, and we had such a great time! You are going to love exploring this resort, with its larger-than-life icons from the various decades. Plus, the all-new Disney Skyliner is such a fun way to travel, and you’ll have a stop right at your resort. You’ve made a great choice!

    The Hippy Dippy Pool will close for refurbishment in winter 2020, and is expected to re-open in early spring 2020. At this time, we don’t have confirmed dates, and I can’t say for sure if the pool will have reopened by the time of your visit. Your best bet is to keep an eye on the Recreation section of Disney’s Pop Century Resort’s webpage for updates. I also always recommend reading the Disney Parks Blog as you count down to your visit, as they share the latest news about new experiences, tasty treats, and other planning tips. 

    The Bowling Pool and Computer Pool will both be open during the refurbishment, and they’re great fun. My family often uses whichever pool is closest to our room to save our precious steps for theme park adventuring, and I know you’ll enjoy these other pool options. As they say at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, surf’s up, dude - so be sure to bring your bathing suits and get ready to cool off and have a splash-tastic time!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
