Several Disney Resorts Schedule Lengthy Maintenance Downtime

Making plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort in the near future? Take note that scheduled downtime will be taking place at several Disney Resort hotels.

Refurbishment is necessary to keep the Disney Parks and Resorts in pristine condition. 2022, for example, was met with a lengthy refurbishment of Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, with more closure time likely inevitable for the popular roller coaster.

And while we highly recommend staying at a Disney Resort Hotel to take advantage of the perk of Early Theme Park Entry (and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours for Deluxe Resort Guests), it’s important to note future downtown closures that may rain on your parade.

Disney is attempting to give its Resort Guests plenty of time to plan ahead, as it has announced three of its Disney Resort feature pools will be closed for routine maintenance from January 2024 through April 2024.

The Disney Resort pools with the four-month downtime include Fantasia Pool at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, Fuentes del Morro Pool at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and Doubloon Lagoon at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter, with the announcements noted below.

As you prepare your Walt Disney World Resort 2024 plans, if having a nice feature pool as your Disney World hotel is a must-have on your list for a Disney vacation, these may be the Resorts to avoid staying at between January and April 2024.
