I am not the OP, but I read on Tikiman's site that it was to be closed from 2/18-2/28.

Sorry to hijack, but are they actually going to renovate the pool (as in add a hot tub, more effective water heating, etc.) or just do the normal periodic maintenance?

I read somewhere that it was an acid wash/regular maintenance

Oh well, I had hoped they'd finally put in a hot tub, which I think is a very strange omission for an otherwise awesome pool that is supposed to feature thermal activity.

Thanks for the info.

I'm hearing tentatively September for a hot tub and major repair. That being said, I've also heard this several times over the past few years and each time it gets postponed so as far as I'm concerned it's not something to worry about yet.

This current closure that keeps getting discussed with these varying February and March dates is supposed to be some kind of acid washing of the deck and/or basic maintenance. A closure of less than 2 weeks will never be anything more than some kind of maintenance.

Count me in as somebody else who's watching closely for live reports of the pool status.

Yep, it's just a short regular maintenance/cleaning closure. The hot tub installation keeps getting talked about and seems like a go and then halts. The people I know there have really gotten to the point that they will believe it when they see it rather than having any certainty about it.

Just put a hot tub at the very top of the volcano. Relaxing, stays with the theme and best hot tub view in DW!

I would add that a "water elevator", like one resort has in Hawaii, would be an excellent way to get to the hot tub (and the slide entrance) in this case. I doubt WDW would pay for such a thing, but I can dream, right?

Switched to CR for our 3/8 trip - they couldn't give 100% confirmation to my agent that it would not be closed then - too risky! If we arrive and it is open --- meaning if I call a day or two before, think I can switch? Even I had to pay the $50 change fee, I wouldn't mind. We didn't have to pay the change fee to switch to CR.

If they have vacancies, sure you can switch, but you'll have to pay the difference for the price of the resort, which is probably considerably more than $50.
