Big Blue Pool at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort to Close in 2021 for Refurbishment
Originally, the Big Blue Pool at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort at Walt Disney World was sucheduled to close for a refurbishment in September of this year and reopen this December. However, like everything else in 2020, the refuribshment was delayed due to COVID-19. Disney still plans to move forward with this refurbishment but dates have just been pushed back to 2021.
The Big Blue Pool at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will now close from January 11, 2021 until “early” April 2021. While the pool is closed for the extended refurbishment, Guests are invited to enjoy the other pools at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort including the Flippin’ Fins Pool, Cozy Cone Pool, and the Schoolyard Sprayground.
During the refurbishment at the Big Blue Pool in 2021, Guests staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort might hear or see construction at the Resort. However, noise will not be heard from Guest rooms between dusk and 9:00 am.
As you most likely know, the Big Blue Pool is just one of several construction projects going on at the Walt Disney World Resort. Many projects were stalled during the extended COVID-19 closure but have since resumed. However, there are rumors circulating that some projects including the Tron Coaster at the Magic Kingdom and the Guardians of the Galaxy Coaster at EPCOT. These rides were both set to open in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in 2021 but some are saying that they will not open until 2022 now.
