There are a lot of reasons to love Disney World hotels. They have great theming and decorations, some of the best Disney food can be found at certain hotels, and staying there gets you extra perks like the free Disney transportation to and from the parks.
Another benefit is that most of the Disney World hotels have really fun, themed pools that can help you cool off after a hot day in the parks. But if you’re staying at one Disney World value resort, you might see a hiccup in your big Disney pool plans.
Two of the pools at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort are closing temporarily in 2022 for some refurbishments.
The Flippin’ Fins Pool (located in the Little Mermaid section of this hotel) will be closed from early January 2022 through late February 2022. During its closure, the Big Blue Pool and the Cozy Cone Pool (both located at Art of Animation as well, just in different sections) will be available for guests to use instead.
Once the Flippin’ Fins Pool reopens (in late February 2022), the Cozy Cone Pool in the Cars section of Art of Animation will close for its own refurbishments. It’s expected to be closed through mid-April 2022.
During this time, the Big Blue Pool and Flippin’ Fins Pool will both be open for guests to use.
So if you’re staying at Art of Animation Resort soon, you will still have two pools to choose from, no matter which section you stay in. If the pool in your room’s section is closed, it might just be a longer walk to get to the other ones.
