    We are staying at pop century in Nov, I believe their main pool may be going under refurbishment at that time. Will we be permitted to use the pool at AOA? Thanks!

    Greetings Colleen! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your planning question. We are always happy to help.

    How totally tubular that you have an upcoming stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort. It is my favorite value resort at Walt Disney World, and I have enjoyed many radical vacations here. I know you will enjoy the recent refurbished rooms here which feature queen-size beds, updated flooring, and new fixtures. The Disney Skyliner is another fantastic recent addition to this resort; I felt like Jasmine soaring on a magic carpet when I experienced this unique and efficient new transportation system. Happy flying!

    I did a little investigating for you, and it looks like the Hippy Dippy Pool will be undergoing a refurbishment beginning winter 2020. The Cast Member with whom I spoke could not mention a specific date, but it is quite possible that you will be able to slide in for a quick dip before the feature pool is closed for scheduled maintenance. Early November is not necessarily considered "winter," and I encourage you to check back closer to your travel dates for an updated operating schedule. I'll cross my fingers you'll get to enjoy the main pool during your vacation. If it works out, have a cool drink at Petals Pool Bar for me!

    If the Hippy Dippy Pool is not open, during your stay you can still make a splash at the Bowling Pool and Computer Pool; Movies Under the Stars will be offered in an alternate location. The pools at Disney's Art of Animation Resort are only available to guests of that resort. 

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning your adventure to the Most Magical Place on Earth. If there is anything else we can do as your trip approaches, please come back and see us again.

    Enjoy your stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort!
