    Are the resort pools open?

    Hi Mike, 

    Thank you for sending your question to us here at planDisney, we appreciate it!  I am currently dreaming of spending time at one of the many Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Pools instead of being at here at home dealing with our cold Canadian winter.  

    During the phased re-opening of Walt Disney World Resort, many of the amenities and recreation offerings are still available to resort guests.  Currently, all of the feature pools as well as leisure pools are open, but may be operating with slightly reduced hours. I would recommend asking at the Front Desk when you check in what the current pool hours are, in order to better plan your days. 

    While enjoying the pool at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can rest assured that there are additional safety measures in place for guests.  Masks are required when walking around the pool area and while you are seated.  The tables and chairs have been spread out to allow for safe distances between parties as well.  Recreational activities such as trivia are still being offered, but some activities are temporarily suspended given the enhanced safety protocols.  

    I am also happy to inform you that Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park will be reopening in early March, and tickets are available for purchase now.  You could also upgrade your existing Theme Park Tickets to include the Park Hopper Plus option that will give you additional visits to Walt Disney World Resort Experiences including Water Parks.  If your family enjoys spending time at the pools, visiting Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park adds even more fun to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  My daughter loves all of the different water slides and we could spend hours in Cross Country Creek, the lazy river.  

    I hope you have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort, Mike.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
