Old Key West Pool Maintenance in Early 2017

In January and February 2017, one the signature amenities at Disney's Old Key West Resort will not be available to guests.  

Old Key West Resort pool

The main pool and sandcastle slide at Disney's Old Key West Resort will be closed for refurbishment in early 2017.  The closure is scheduled to begin toward the start of January and run through the end of February.  

Old Key West has three quiet pools which will be available to guests during the closure.  Disney Vacation Club members may also pool hop to nearby Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa or any other eligible location.  

Note that at least one member with a vacation scheduled for December 2016 was notified of the closure by Disney Vacation Club, which has generated some confusion.  Whenever possible, pool renovations are planned for the cold winter months of January - March, following the end of the busy holiday season.  Officially the refurbishment is scheduled to commence in January 2017.

In spring 2017 crews will begin wholesale renovations on guest rooms at Old Key West, a project expected to last 2 years.

I know that someone whose stay there starts at the end of December just got the dreaded letter about the pool closure. I kind of wish I knew for sure since we have a stay there scheduled for early January. I kind of figured that Guy would want the pool since we're going for Marathon weekend and being in water helps the muscles (or so I hear). But he still sees OKW as the most "running-friendly" resort, so he said he'd being a couple straws to make his own jacuzzi, and off we'll go.

Are there hot tubs at the quiet pools at OKW? Guy could use one of them if need be as only the main pool is being renovated.

The jacuzzis at the smaller pools are just fine. I enjoyed both the South Point & Turtle Pond pool/jacuzzis quite a bit earlier this month. They were noticeably more peaceful than the main pool area.

So good to know, thanks! I honestly didn't know whether there were jacuzzis at the smaller pools, and neither did Guy when I asked him yesterday.
