Hello, I will be in Disney 2/17-2/24 which is Presidents day week. We are staying at FW and I am working on putting together touring plans so I know what ADR’s to shoot for when they open up in a couple of weeks. A big part of the enjoyment for my kids is hitting the pools/spray area so I am trying to “plan” that into my touring. Ideally I would like to RD a park and then stay till late afternoon, early evening and then head to the pool alternated with a day where we don’t go to the park until 1ish and stay till closing, allowing kids to catch up on sleep and hit the pools before we go the park. I have only stayed at a Disney resort in the summer on previous trips when pools hours were typically 9am till 11pm. I am assuming the hours will be shorted in February? So I guess what I’m getting at is would it be reasonable to expect the pools to be open by 10am? and not close till 8pm? or is this wishful thinking? I am trying to avoid afternoon breaks and the extra travel time associated with them. Any time ideas from others past trips would be appreciated.
2nd question is a quick one. I want to make a BBB reservation for my daughter on the 5th day of our trip. Does this work like ADR’s that I could book 180+5 or do I need to wait until exactly 180 days out?
Thanks for your assistance.
