Beach Club- are ducks in pools a prob?
 
Know that stormalong bay is considered the premiere pool on property. Was reading there are lots of ducks in the pools. Is this true? Since pool isn't same as a lake ( pool not having constant current) kind of concerns me if true, but hadn't heard much about it until recently. Beach clubs vets- experience/thoughts?

They are around but it doesn't bother me in the slightest. Here at home we sometimes will have migrating ducks take a break in our backyard pool. They are a part of the bug control habitat - The Circle of Life - as Rafiki would say.

I stay at ycbc all the time and yes there are ducks but never enough of a problem for me not to enjoy SAB and I have only seen one or two in the pool and the lifeguards shoo them out. I blame the people that do not read the signs about NOT feeding wildlife.

Yes, there are ducks in the BC pools, and in other pools on property. The ducks are really cute (especially with their ducklings) swimming in the pools, until you see the mother duck poo in the pool. I am not a fan of swimming with the ducks anymore!

The water in the pools are always running through a filter and the water is chlorinated, so ducks in a pools does not bother me.

If it did bother me; I would never swim in a pool because there are always people swimming in a pool.

As a kid we would have to fish the Copperheads out of the pool before we went swimming, most were dead. So a couple of ducks in a pool doesn't bother me.

Agree. When we lived in Alabama we had a greenbelt behind our house. We always had to check the bottom of the pool and the skimmer for snakes and other wildlife before jumping in. So a resort pool occupied by a couple of ducks? Unless the water looks like a science experiment, doesn't bother me at all.

The ducks are not leaving anything worse in the pool that some kids do.

I have seen ducks in every pool in Disney at one time or another.


At SAB most often the ducks swim in the roped off area near Hannahs. They should be left alone. I have seen kids chase and try to play with the ducklings. Parents tell your kids to leave them alone.

I have found that the squrrills on the deck are much more annoyingand agessive .

Most importanly don't feed the animals.Whne you finish your food throw it in can.

We stayed there in September, spent a lot of time at Stormalong Bay, there were ducks around alot, in the water, crawling under my lounge chair, but they were never bothersome. We thought they were cute, and I cant say I never saw ducks in the pools at Pop Century, AoA, and Kidani Village.

Not a problem. They generally swim away if you approach them. They are really cute to watch.

Ducks are probably not as big a problem as toddlers with swim diapers on.

so toddlers should not be able to use the pools at wdw? Swim diapers serve the purpose of protecting both the bathing suit and the pool water from the child's excrement.

As long as it stay solid.

Just pointing out that worrying about the ducks is rather pointless.

Thx all for the feedback. Seeing ducks at the other pools hasn't ever bothered me, didnt even register, just seemed like comments have indicated there are more than avg at SAB for some reason? Glad to know that it isn't an overwhelming issue. Look forward to checking it out for ourselves this spring!
