Stormalong Bay Refurbishment Estimate Grows Longer

Beach Club Villas

Disney is now estimating that refurbishment of the feature pool at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts will last one month longer than originally projected. 

Stormalong Bay

In August 2023, Walt Disney World revealed that the Stormalong Bay feature pool at the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts would close for refurbishment from January to May, 2025. That estimate has since been extended by a month, with the refurb now projected to last to the end of June 2025. 

Disney often closes small portions of the pool for refurbishment, particularly during the winter months. However this is the first time in more than a decade that the entire complex will close for up to a half-year. 

During the closure, the resort's three leisure pools will remain available to guests. This includes the Dunes Cove Pool located near the Disney Vacation Club villa wing, the Tidal Pool on the Beach Club side near the shores of Crescent Lake and the Admiral Pool over at Disney's Yacht Club Resort

Walt Disney World recently announced that throughout 2025, all guests staying at Disney owned-and-operated resorts would receive complimentary admission to either Disney's Blizzard Beach or Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park on their arrival day. All Disney Vacation Club members qualify for this perk when using their points, including individuals booked at Disney's Beach Club Villas during the pool refurbishment.
