This announcement clarifies why Disney had previously announced the closure of the Yacht and Beach Club’s feature pool- Stormalong Bay.
The announcement of Stormalong Bay was previously reported here.
Blue fencing, similar to that which has been installed at the Grand Floridian, is being installed around the feature pool. Leaving many who have Beach Club Villa reservations upset about there upcoming & current stays. Beach Club Villa guests are being offered the Boardwalk pool- which does not hold the same reputation comparably to the highly loved Stormalong Bay.
The Yacht Club Resort is set to reopen to the public on August 24th, which is the predicted date of Stormalong Bay being opened as well. However Disney has not announced an official date for the feature pools reopening, yet.
