Be there a week from Sunday!

With a WDW virgin in tow! Can't wait to show her all things Disney and show her what has made me such a Disney geek.

I've been to SOG twice before (2011 & 2013), both times in February. The "heated" pools felt quite chilly . Can anyone comment on the warmth of the new pool?

Talking How warm in renovated Magnolia Pool?

We were there in mid-December and it was what I would call "very warm". There were usually kids in the pool until closing at 10PM. I always thought both of the pools were heated, but after this visit, most guests said there was a world of difference in temperature between the mill pond or "Mickey" pool and the Magnolia pool. The hot tub thankfully continues to be about 105º. The only downside is that it now closes at 10PM, and there is no way around that. The pool /hot tub area is now fenced, and the gates are locked at 10PM. The good news for folks with small children is that the pool now has lifeguards.

We were there in December also. I felt that both pools were fairly warm. I asked one of the lifeguards at the Magnolia Pool if the "Mickey Pool" would also have lifeguards once it had been resurfaced and had the slide added. He told me that the Mickey Pool would also have lifeguards when it was completed. I wonder if that pool will also close at 10:00pm?

The hotel says both pools are heated to 80 degrees

Last time we were there the pool heater or whatever they call it wasn't working. Hopefully next week it will be.

I have the same questions and worries. Most concerned about FP that ran out early before FP+ (Soarin, Toy Story Mania, etc)- wondering if these will even be available at all.
