Are the Resort Pools Heated at Walt Disney World?

Walt Disney World vacations usually center around the hustle and bustle of the theme parks and experiencing everything they have to offer. But, if relaxing is more your speed, the resorts at Walt Disney World have you covered with amenities intended to offer a break from the theme parks.

Taking some time to sit by the pool or going for a swim can be a great way to recharge your batteries before heading back to the parks. Thankfully, every resort at Walt Disney World has at least one pool area (most resorts have multiple!) for guests to enjoy.

The pools are obviously great during the usual Florida heat, but are the pools heated during the cooler months?

Yes, every pool at Walt Disney World is heated!

All of the pools at Walt Disney World are heated to a temperature of about 82 degrees. Guests are welcome to take a dip even during the cooler winter months when outdoor temperatures drop. This is the same reported temperature of the pools at Disneyland Resort hotels.

We personally took advantage of the heated pools during one of our winter stays at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Despite it being January and the outdoor temperatures hovering around 60 and 70 degrees at their highest, we braved the weather and took a swim in Stormalong Bay. It’s one of the best – if not the very best – pools in Walt Disney World. How could we resist?

The water was warm, but we did encounter some cool spots. That’s fairly expected in a pool the size of Stormalong Bay. We only felt cold when we were getting out and trying to dry off. Otherwise it was a pleasant January swim.

Summarized, don’t rule out a swim if you’re visiting Walt Disney World during the winter. All of the pools are heated and, generally, everything is pretty comfortable until you have to get out.
