Walt Disney World Resort continues to share updates regarding theme park and Disney Resort hotel operations. The most recent update pertains to the refurbishments of the swimming pools at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
Here’s the latest Disney World hotel refurbishment news that you should know when booking your next Disney trip in advance.
Disney has shared that the Contemporary Feature Pool at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and the Meadow Swimmin’ Pool at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground are set to undergo refurbishments in 2023. As Guests are planning their vacations very far in advance, this is good to keep in mind, especially when it comes to using the swimming pools or hearing construction taking place.
In case you aren’t familiar, there are dozens of Resorts at Walt Disney World Resort located in Orlando, Florida. Both Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground are located near Magic Kingdom, along with Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Due to their close proximity to Magic Kingdom and easy transportation, these are very popular Disney Resorts for families, specifically.
Below is the latest update shared by Disney:
In an effort to continually enhance the Guest experience here at Walt Disney World Resort, we refresh our offerings from time to time.
The Contemporary Feature Pool at Disney’s Contemporary Resort will be unavailable in winter 2023 while it undergoes maintenance work. As an alternative, Guests staying at this Disney Resort hotel may enjoy the Bay Pool, leisure pool at the Contemporary Resort.
Additionally, the Meadow Swimmin’ Pool at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will be unavailable beginning January through April 2023 while it undergoes maintenance work. As an alternative, Guests staying at this Disney Resort hotel may enjoy the Wilderness Swimmin’ pool.
During this time, it is possible that Guests may see or hear construction, but noise should not be heard from Guest rooms, Guest cabins and campsites between dusk and 9 a.m.
There is also a lot of construction currently taking place at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. If you visit this summer, you will see tarps covering several areas of the hotel as Disney continues refurbishments. The rooms at the Resort are currently being rethemed to The Incredibles.
