My letter from Disney states the pool will be closed starting on 1/2... disapointing, since we check in on 1/5 and this means no slide for the kids. All DS wants to do at the pool is go down the slide over and over again... I hope SAB becomes an option.

I read on another thread that there's a typo on the letter. Should be 1/28. The bakery is 1/2.

I just opened our letter today, we were so upset. Although the clown freaks me out, my 3 kids (3 to 11) love the slide. I've been looking to move to another resort, can still get kidani for our week, but DH really wants to stay here. This is our first trip that we are "scheduling" a pool day, which will be difficult if there's no pool! Hope SAB comes through...

This would make sense, but they notified me (going 1/19) that the pool would be closed for our stay. Unless whoever sent the letter had the dates wrong, then that would explain a lot. I read somewhere recently that the pool with the slide at SAB will be closed until the end of January, and that in that time guests can use Luna Park Pool. So maybe it really isn't closing until SAB is refurbished. However, that's REALLY wrong if Yacht & Beach Club guests can use the Boardwalk pool and not vise versa.

As I wrote in the other thread on this subject, I will be surprised if guests at BWI/BWV are not allowed to use SAB. In Feb/Mar 2011, when the Luna Park slide was being refurbished, a similar accommodation was made.

Agree. We were there quite a few years ago when this happened and we were allowed to use SAB. I will be very surprised if it isn't an option.

If the Stormalong Bay slide is closed 1/16 to 1/25, it makes sense that the Luna Park closes on 1/28, not 1/2. If they allow YC/BC guest to go to Luna Park to use that slide during the closure like they usually do, the reverse should also happen.

I check in at BWV on 7 Jan and my letter definitely states that Luna Park Pool will close from 2 January. Is this looking like it's a mistake then?

Just read thread better, and it does look like it!

I just called downstairs to the Front Desk and spoke to Piper who confirmed that the pool will be closed on January 28. Always conflicting information.

I called back and spoke to Danny who called Recreation. The pool will close on January 28 and guest will be able to use Storm Along Bay.

Thanks for the update. I just hope the weather is nice enough to take advantage of SAB. We may stroll over if we have pool weather. Looks like the pool will close during the middle of my stay (Jan. 23-Feb. 2)

We were left a message at our door at VWL that the slide at the Silver Creek Springs pool will be closed starting Jan 7 until sometime until the end of the month. In the mean time WL and VWL guests can use the slide at the Contemporary pool (but not BLT).
