Pools heated

Hi there

Curious about pools at wdw, are they heated and if not, anyone been in February, is it quite cold? Mind you, we're from a pretty cold part of Canada so anything above 70 c is great!
Were looking at Caribbean beach or pop century

Yes, all the Pools are heated
We have been in February and have had very enjoyable swim time, even went to a Waterpark
Just be sure to have plenty of towels to bundle up in once you get out of the water
A very nice reason to choose a Moderate over a Value Resort in the Winter months is that they and the Deluxe Resorts, have Hot Tubs too

They refer to them as heated but I think it's only to 70 degrees - as in not hot not even really warm IMO.

We've been in the water in January and February but then again it has been really warm or even hot weatherwise on some of our trips. When we've gone and it's been cool / cold I've stuck my foot in the water and said "no"
Can't wait to go to WDW again in 2015 - In January and May (SWW)!

we stayed at the WL this past February and went swimming when the air temperature was 75 or higher. The pool temperature felt great.

We were there this past October and the pool water felt cold to me . The weather was nice and hot in the middle of the day and cooled off at night.

All of the pools are supposed to be heated to 82 - but they usually feel pretty cool.

we stayed at the Poly in sept a few years ago, and no way that pool was heated. It was even too cold for the kids most days.
