We have more details about the saga of the BoardWalk Inn clown pool!
Officially called the Lunar Park Pool at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, this Walt Disney World Resort pool has become famous (or rather, infamous?) for the larger-than-life clown waterslide. Recently, Disney announced that the pool would undergo some refurbishments — and the giant clown head was removed.

Now, we have some more details, thanks to reporter Brook Geiger McDonald, who shared the following statement from Disney:
“We look forward to Mickey and his pals clowning around at Luna Park Pool. Guests will enjoy the same great ride down Keister Coaster slide with a brand-new look.”

So, what does this mean? Is the clown coming back? In the statement above, Disney clearly indicates that the pool will be reimagined — and Mickey and friends will be “clowning around” as part of the pool’s new look. We don’t yet know if clowns will be part of the pool in one way or another, but we’re certainly eager to find out.
Luna Park Pool at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort may look a little funny as work takes place on the Keister Coaster waterslide. We expect the waterslide to be available again before the end of 2020—though dates are subject to change. Work in the pool area will continue through the end of this year. Luna Park Pool, as well as 2 leisure pools at this Resort hotel, will remain open during this refurbishment.
We’ll be sure to report back as soon as we find out any more information about the Luna Park Pool at Disney’s BoardWalk, as the construction is estimated to be finished before the end of 2020. But for now, it doesn’t look like the infamous clown will be making a comeback.
