Disney Gives Hint At Retheming of Luna Park Pool at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn
When it comes to Walt Disney World’s incredible resorts, there’s a whole lot to love. However, one of the things that has long divided visitors is whether the Luna Park Pool area at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn is positively delightful or utterly terrifying.
I’ve long been a fan of the pool area at the Boardwalk for its turn of the century Coney Island-esque charm. Who doesn’t want to saddle up to a bar shaped like a merry-go-round? However, when it comes to the clown shaped pool slide you either love it or hate it!
With scary clowns rising to prominence over the last several years, the waterslide that deposits you out of a clowns mouth does take on a slightly ominous tone. Therefore its not surprising that said clown has now been removed from the pool area and Luna Park is now undergoing a refurbishment.
So what will the updated area look like? Disney has given a few insights which appeared in a recent tweet from writer Brooke Geiger McDonald:
Here’s a statement from Disney on the fate of the Boardwalk clown slide 🤡:
“We look forward to Mickey and his pals clowning around at Luna Park Pool. Guests will enjoy the same great ride down Keister Coaster slide with a brand-new look.” #WaltDisneyWorld pic.twitter.com/hiLxY90Q5z

As you can see from the image above, Disney World opted to keep the wooden coaster structure of the waterslide but the clown is gone. Though Disney isn’t giving too much away, they did say in their statement, “We look forward to Mickey and his pals clowning around at Luna Park Pool.” Though they are deliberately keeping things a bit vague, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the pool area incorporating some of your favorite Disney friends!
We’d love a little Mickey & Friends theming to this pool area but hope that the area still retains its carnival-esque theming. This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely. Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for further Walt Disney World news and updates!
