Resort pools are a huge draw for guests and little ones in the group, even if it’s cold out. Water slides in hotel pools give the resort bonus points, that’s for sure. Just like attractions, these slides and pool areas need to undergo refurbishment. The water slide at the Lava Pool will be closing for maintenance in January and reopening in February. Thankfully there’s plenty to do at the resort, like dining at Ohana, hanging out at the Oasis Pool, and walking on the sandy beach.
