    We are going to be staying at Fort Wilderness in February and the Meadows swimming hole is closed for refurbishment. Could we go to another resort and use their swimming pool or water activities?

    Hiya Deb,

    Welcome to planDisney. While it may feel like your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will never get here, before you know it, you will be on your way to The World's Most Magical Celebration! There are so many exciting things for you to enjoy, including one of our family's favorites - the new thrill attraction at EPCOT, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. We love teaming up with Star Lord and the Guardians to race through space and save the galaxy. It is a definite must-do! 

    Great choice on The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort. We love the rustic feel of the cabins set amongst all the trees. It is the perfect place to start the morning with a cup of coffee while listening to the birds, or end your day with a bonfire and S'mores. You can also enjoy a hike along the trails, canoeing, fishing, visiting with the horses or an evening at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. I know refurbishments are a necessary part of keeping the theme parks and resorts in tip-top shape, but it is disappointing when one of your favorite attractions, restaurants or swimmin' holes is out of service during your visit. You are correct that the Meadow Swimmin' Pool will be closed from early January through early April 2023. While you are not able to use the swimming pool at a neighboring Disney Resorts Collection, the water play area and Meadow Snack Bar and the Wilderness Swimmin' Pool at Fort Wilderness Resort will still be open and available for your enjoyment. 

    Wishing you a splashin' great time! If I can help with any further planning questions, please stop back and see me

    With pixie dust,
