WE were at WDW for Thankgiving 2010. It was 86 degrees in the daytime. I wished we had our swimsuits.

It's generally still 70-80 in November. Nights will get cool though.

The Fountains now has two pools -- the heated one Weegl describes, and then the big "Wakoola Springs" pool, which is not heated. When we were there in May a few years back, the kids were fun with the unheated pool when it came to the slides, but found the "water play area" too cold. The heated pool was, not surprisingly, pretty busy a lot of the time! About on par with most Disney resort pools, actually. Meaning that those northerners who were happy with the unheated pool pretty much had it to themselves.

I hope I don't jinx our next trip by saying this, but...... We have swam every November trip we have taken. It might not have been "hot" but we swam or hot tubed or hot hubed and swam.

To add, I have never worn pants on any November trip, a sweatshirt or flannel (I'm a fashion victim) but not pants.

Your best time to swim is definitely mid afternoon in November and of course depending on the high that day. Definitely take your swimming gear. Morning and evening swims probably would be chilly.

Any water coming out of a pipe (such as a water slide) is not heated water. It will be cold water even if the rest of the pool is heated.

Well, the water in the pool is heated and the water slide takes water from the pool and recirculates, not fresh water, so it should be heated to begin with but probably feels cooler once it is isolated. Resort pools are usually only heated to 78 to 82 degrees and on cooler days may not reach the maximum temperature (especially Jan/Feb). Depends on the weather, which varies in November.

We have been a couple of times in November and have swam each day. DS even likes to swim at night then too.
