    Is it true that the Art of Animation hotel pools no longer have character's voices and music playing underwater?

    Hi Donna,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question about The Big Blue Pool at Disney's Art of Animation Resort hotel.  If you haven't stayed at this Resort before you are in for a real treat!  From the immersive room decor to the detailed outdoor courtyards filled with sculptures of your beloved pals,  you will feel like you are living in some of your favorite animated movies. 

    At the time of this writing, you are correct there is not underwater music or characters speaking in The Big Blue Pool.  However, the Big Blue Pool is scheduled to temporarily close while it undergoes refurbishment beginning in January, 2021 and will reopen sometime in April, 2021 so it's possible this may change again when it reopens.  But never fear, there is still so much to see and do poolside!  From the zero depth entry of The Big Blue Pool to the nearby Schoolyard Sprayground with its pop-up jets and gushing water, your family is guaranteed to have a "splashingly" good time.

    Have a Magical vacation Donna!  If we can help you with any further vacation planning questions, please be sure to stop by and see us again.  We are Disney fans, just like yourself, and love helping others plan their next Magical Adventure!
