Between September 3 and November 27, the Silver Creek Springs pool, kiddie pool, and spas will be closed due to a major refurbishment project. If you plan on staying at that resort during that time, you will still be able to use the Hidden Springs leisure pool (located next to the Disney Vacation Club wing). The main pools at both Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and Disney's Contemporary Resort will also be available. Continue to read for additional information.
As in the case of Guests staying at Disney’s Polynesian Resort, also those staying at Disney's Wilderness Lodge are being offered complimentary water park tickets while that pool is under refurbishment.
Disney Vacation Club Member will still be able to pool hop to other resorts during their stay. That said, if you are a member, you will still have to adhere to the established guidelines:
Disney Vacation Club Members staying at a DVC Resort at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disney's Vero Beach Resort are permitted to use other Disney Vacation Club and WDW Resort hotel pools (in addition to the pool(s) at the Resort where they are staying) if those pools are not at capacity. If the pool they are visiting reaches capacity, they may be asked to leave in order to accommodate Guests of that Resort hotel. They must present their current "Disney Vacation Club Member" designation on it to use other Resort hotel pools.
NOTE: Pool hopping is NOT available at any time at Stormalong Bay and the leisure pools at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, the pools at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and the pools at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Contemporary Resort (Including Bay Lake Tower).
