Throughout the property’s closure, Walt Disney World officials performed all kinds of maintenance to ensure that the hotel buildings and their surrounding grounds were in exceptional condition for Guests.

Now, however, it looks like there’s still more work to do, as a new building permit has been filed for a “concrete repair” on the French Quarter’s Blue Doubloon pool.

Although the extent of the concrete repair is not known, it is certainly possible that it will close the pool to guests. If repairs need to be done inside the pool, for example, it may need to be drained while the work is completed by the contractor, Faden Builders, Inc.

Disney’s official description of the French Quarter pool reads:

Parade around this Mardi Gras-themed pool where King Neptune rides a giant sea serpent. Scale “Scales”, as he is affectionately nicknamed, and slide down his tongue for a splash landing. Jazz-loving alligators and flip-flop water features add more poolside panache, while a hot tub and the nearby Mardi Grogs pool bar keep the good times rolling.
