Though each of the pools at Disney is amazing in their own way, there are a handful that stand out to us as being truly something special. If swimming is high up on your Disney vacation priority list, you may want to book a stay at one of the resorts hosting our 7 favorite Walt Disney World Resort Pools.
7. Big Blue Pool
This is the most overrated pool at Walt Disney World. Art of Animation Resort‘s Feature Pool is often touted for its size (the largest at any Walt Disney World resort hotel), the underwater music, and its fun Finding Nemo decor. However be ready for the crowds.
6. Fuentes del Morro Pool
here’s nothing better than for your kids to spend the day with Captain Jack and his gang at the theme parks and then getting to retire back to the Disney Caribbean Beach Resort for a dip in a pool that looks like something straight out of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Designed to resemble a Spanish fort, this area features a 102 zero-entry pool with dueling water slides and most importantly water cannons that you can fire away! For adults looking to relax there’s also a pool bar and two hot tubs.
5. Bowling Pin Pool
Located at Pop Century Resort, this underrated pool at a value resort may seem like an odd choice. However, as many guests are budget conscious, value resorts are popular resort destinations with some really great pools. Pop Century’s bowling pin pool is literally shaped like a bowling pin, a feature which both adults and kids find to be really cool!
4. The Beach Pool
The Beach Pool at the Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa overlooks Seven Seas Lagoon and features a 181-foot-long waterslide, while the Courtyard Pool is located behind the main building of the resort and offers a quieter atmosphere. Both pools are zero-entry, which resembles walking into the water at the beach.
3. Luna Park Pool
This pool at the Disney Boardwalk Inn has a carnival, circus theme with an awesome slide called the Keister Coaster. This is a great pool for kids; but adults are also known to enjoy it too! Many guests say that this pool is one of the best things about the Boardwalk Inn so be sure to consider it on your next trip.
2. Lava Pool
Located at the Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Set at the foot of an inactive volcano, this pool area wins in the ambiance department. Think towering volcano, waterfalls, and a 142 foot waterslide. There’s also a zero depth entry to the pool and a lounge that serves light bites and drinks.
1. Stormalong Bay
This pool, located at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, is like a mini-water park! The pool is gigantic 3 acre complex with a sand-bottom which is a big hit with guests. There is also a lazy river and a waterslide resembling a fallen ship’s mast! t also has an excellent 230-foot ‘shipwrecked’ water slide, ample lounging space, a surplus of bridges and areas to explore, and an excellent poolside bar.
