    Hi! Is there any status on the update to the pool at Disneys Caribbean beach resort? We have a trip scheduled for early April and the pool with the water slides was one of the reasons we selected that location. Thanks!

    Hey Howdy Hey Katie and welcome to planDisney!

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is an amazing resort for so many reasons. The resort itself is beautiful and just walking around exploring the resort is a great way to spend some time enjoying the scenery. Transportation to the theme parks has got to be one of the big perks when staying at the Caribbean Beach. Disney Skyliner is such a unique and fun way to get around, it is an attraction itself outside the parks! Thank you for your question about construction updates for the main pool. I will be happy to give you a little more information on what to expect. 

    Fuentes Del Morro Pool at the Caribbean Beach Resort is an amazing way to spend some time. Earlier this year, Disney announced routine maintenance to this pool beginning in January and continuing through late March of 2024. At this time, Disney does not have any official updates on the status of the maintenance outside of this timeline. I would expect if anything were to change, you may hear over the next couple of weeks. 

    I will say that routine maintenance of pools typically happens in the cooler months and Disney makes every effort to have all the pools ready to go as the temperatures start heating up in Florida in the springtime. I would hope since this maintenance is expected, that the timeline stays true and the pool would open up by the end of this month. 

    For some reason, if the pool is not open during your stay, you still have several options for ways to spend some time. The Caribbean Beach resort is a large resort with 5 leisure pools onsite. It can be a fun time to check each one out and enjoy the water in different pools. Since you will be staying onsite, you will have the privilege of swimming at any one of the pools at this resort. Your other option will be doing a little resort hopping. 

    If you are looking for alternative ways to spend an afternoon or evening, checking out the local resorts is a fun way to spend some time. You can take a relaxing stroll over to Disney's Riviera Resort and stop by Le Petit Cafe for a tasty treat you can enjoy in the relaxing library right next to it. You can then take a relaxing ride on Disney Skyliner over Disney's Pop Century and Disney's Art of Animation Resorts. You can take a stroll around Hour Glass Lake and stop in Everything POP Shopping and Dinning for a Tye-Dye Cheesecake. Food at the resorts and Resort Transportation can be just as much of an attraction as you will find in the parks!

    I am sorry I cannot give you a more solid answer on when exactly the pool will be open. Keep checking back online or through your My Disney Experience app towards the end of the month. When maintenance is finished, usually the warning will be taken down. I hope you will have the opportunity to experience the pool during your upcoming trip. My fingers are crossed that maintenance will be finished soon. Please feel free to stop back if you have any further questions, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
