    I am traveling with my family (7 adjusts & 7 children) and staying at the Contemporary Garden resort. I just read the Feature pool will be closed while we are there. I have $6k invested in hotel rooms. What will options be for pools?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kathy! We're glad you stopped by for a visit!

    I'm a big fan of Disney history, so Disney's Contemporary Resort holds a special place in my heart. It is one of the original resorts that opened at Walt Disney World in 1971. I bet that Guests thought the A-frame structure looked pretty futuristic back then- and I think it still does! On your way to the Monorail, make sure to spend some time in the Grand Canyon Concourse, where you'll find a 90-foot-tall mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair.

    I called the resort today and confirmed that from January 9, 2023, through early April 2023, the Feature Pool and whirlpool spas at the Contemporary will be closed for refurbishment. However, Guests are welcome to use the water play area and Bay Cove Pool at neighboring Bay Lake Tower. As a Disney Vacation Club member, I've had the chance to swim in this pool many times, and I really enjoy it. The pool overlooks Bay Lake, and it has a 148-foot-long waterslide and a zero-depth entry. Sometimes I'll even indulge in a drink from the Cove Bar while relaxing in the whirlpool spa!

    But as lovely as the pools are, I think the dining at this resort is even better! Both Steakhouse 71 and California Grill sit at the top of my list, so I recommend trying to get a dining reservation at either one. My friend, Lisa, has some good tips for making reservations for a large party, and you can click here to read her answer.

    We hope to see ya real soon, Kathy!
