Silver Creek Springs Pool Reopens with a New Fence

We have exciting news!

The Silver Creek Springs Pool has reopened after being closed since September 3, and it’s sporting an all-new fence around the pool area!

New Fence at Silver Springs Pool

We think this new fence means you’ll might have to eventually use your MagicBand to enter the pool area – much like the Big Blue Pool at the Art of Animation! Disney is slowly fencing in all resort pools (the Grand Floridian’s pool also features a fence now) and if a MagicBand is required, it should stop guests from “pool hopping.” The fence also allows the pools to stay open for 24 hours.

We also spotted a construction area near the pool and it looks like it might be for an all-new “splash zone” for the kids. We don’t have any official word on if it really is a splash zone, but take a look at the photo and you be the judge!

Splash Zone at Silver Springs Pool?

The pool area looks great with the new fence and gates – and we love the mama bear and her cub featured on the gates!
