In a Reddit post, one concerned Guest asked if anyone knew why the pool closed at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge last night. The user asked if anyone knew what was going on, saying, “Anybody know what happened at the Wilderness Lodge pool tonight? The pool was closed a few hours early tonight and theres a few cops and leaders in the pool area”.

In the comment sections, one user who claims they were listening in on the emergency call stated the following:

Near drowning. Call came in at 9:13 to OCSO, but Reedy Creek FD doesn’t have their radio or logs available to the public, so that’s all I know. I’m a local emergency stringer/photographer (fancy way of saying I like fire trucks) so I track stuff like that closely. As I’m typing this, OCSO is still showing it as an active call, so it was more than likely a pediatric victim. Pediatric anything = much longer investigation since foul play/negligence are always possibilities. The Floridays’ Resort pool on I-Drive has calls like this often enough that it has a reputation with firefighters. Like it’s a monthly thing that Station 56 gets a drowning call there.

This is the only information we have regarding this situation at the moment, but once more is revealed we will continue to add more to our story. We hope that all Guests are safe and healthy and if the above statement is true, that the Guest in question is able to once again enjoy their vacation.
