    We are staying at All Star Movies and just got a notice that the main pool is closed during our stay. I get there is the Duck Pond but its not the same and we can use another pool but its not Fantasia. Will we get a discount,we booked in November 23

    Hi Aaron,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. I'm happy to assist!

    Disney's All-Star Movies Resort is my favorite of the All-Stars for its adorable character theming. I stayed there on a quick trip with my daughter last year and we loved snapping photos with the 101 Dalmatians TV prop as well as the magical Fantasia brooms during our stay. On the opposite end of the resort grounds, you'll find larger-than-life Toy Story character figures like Buzz Lightyear and Woody. These also make great photo backdrops and will have you feeling transported into your favorite Disney movies.

    We didn't have time for a dip in the Fantasia pool on our last visit, but I can understand why you wouldn't want to miss it during your trip. Initially, this pool was scheduled for a refurbishment between January and April 2024, but that was pushed back a year with the current refurbishment scheduled from January 2025 to April 2025. You indicated an arrival date of March 2024 so if that's accurate, you shouldn't miss a minute of the fun swimming alongside Sorcerer Mickey.

    If your vacation is booked for March 2025, you can either keep your existing reservation as planned or contact a Cast Member by phone to modify it to another available resort. I don't believe a discount would be available for the pool refurbishment since it was announced in advance, and an alternate pool will still be available for guest use during that time. 

    I'd recommend checking out Disney's Art of Animation Resort if you decide to modify your existing reservation. The Big Blue Pool there is the largest on property and also features adorable movie theming from Finding Nemo. The Hippy Dippy Pool at Disney's Pop Century Resort is another fun option and is even shaped like a groovy flower. I loved soaking up some sun with a poolside beverage when we stayed there last summer. Both of these are considered Value Resorts and are located along the Disney Skyliner route making them convenient for visits to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.

    I hope this clears up any confusion, Aaron. If we can answer any further questions or offer more recommendations please come back and let us know.

    Magic and memories!
