    What time are pools open in September?

    Hi Krys,

    Welcome to planDisney! You are ahead of the game; one of the best-kept secrets of Walt Disney World Resort are the incredible pools at the Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotels. Whenever I visit, I try my hardest to schedule at least a half day devoted to resting by the pool in my itinerary. It is a "must" for an incredible vacation.

    I'm not sure which resort hotel you are staying at, Krys, so I'm not able to tell you precisely the hours for the pools at your resort hotel. Typically most resort hotel pools open around 10 am, but some can open much earlier, closer to 7 am. For example, one of my favorite pools Stormalong Bay at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, opens from 10 am-11 pm currently, but the "smaller" Tidal Pool opens beginning at 7 am. These hours are subject to change, so in my experience, the best way to confirm the pool times is upon arrival for your stay. The activities calendar in the lobby also lists the pool hours, which will be accurate for the week. They will also be able to alert you if, for some reason, the hours differ from what you were anticipating.

    I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful, Krys. As you continue making plans for your upcoming vacation, don't hesitate to stop by and ask any additional questions.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
