    We will be visiting Disney World January 2018 and staying at the Contemporary. Will the pools at the resort be open, and are they heated?

    Welcome Home, Amy!

    Thank you for diving into the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am thrilled to answer your great question about the pools at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. With just a few short months until your magical vacation, I hope you will continue to visit the Moms Panel with any other questions you may have!

    The pools at all Disney Resort hotels, including those at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, remain open during normal operating hours all year round! If weather dips below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, it is up to the Cast Members in charge of Resort hotel management to decide if they will close the pools or keep them open. However, this rarely occurs in Central Florida. Having visited many times in January (it is my favorite month to visit), I have yet to see a Disney Resort hotel pool close due to cold weather. You will be happy to know that all Disney Resort hotel pools are heated to 82 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the entire year!

    Amy, I wish you a splash-tacular Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I hope you enjoy staying and swimming at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

    Just Keep Swimming,
