The Walt Disney World Resorts are equipped with some amazing amenities and fun ways to keep your family entertained while on vacation. They aren’t just a place to sleep! In fact, many guests choose their Walt Disney World Resort based on the swimming pool. Yes, the Walt Disney World Resort pool is often a deciding factor when it comes time to choose a resort. They are just that awesome! One thing I love about the Walt Disney World Resort pools is that there are multiple pools at each resort. So if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing pool, you can certainly find one! Or, if you want to let your kids enjoy the water slide and pool side games, that is where the main feature pool is important! Today I am going to share the Five Best Walt Disney World Resort Pools with you!
Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort. Stormalong Bay is, in the opinion of many, the BEST pool at Walt Disney World. It is equipped with a waterslide, resembling a ship mast. The sand-bottom pool also adds a special touch to the “Beach Club” theming. Plus, it is unique in that it has a lazy river. There literally is not another pool at Walt Disney World like this one! Guests staying at the Yacht & Beach Club are in a for a huge treat with Stormalong Bay, and should definitely plan a pool day into their Disney itinerary!
Nana Volcano Pool at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. The Nanea Volcano Pool recently underwent a refurbishment at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. The pool itself did not change. However, there is now a larger pool deck area, and the volcano structure around the amazing waterslide has been rebuilt. Unique to this pool is a hot tub with an infinity edge. How relaxing is that?! The best aspect of the Nanea Volcano Pool is the Kiki Tikis Splash Play Area. This is perfect for young children to get wet and splash around in a safe place!
Fuentes del Morro Pool at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. The Fuentes del Morro Pool at Caribbean Beach is fantastically fun. Of the moderate resorts, I really think this is the best pool in that category. First, it has two waterslides. One of them is 82-feet long, and you have to climb up a spiral staircase to get to the top of it! It is also very kid friendly. It has a zero-entry area for little ones. Also, the wading pool is huge! It is equipped with an aqua play area, squirt hoses, and three kid-sized slides. I like this one because it is very accommodating for families with children of various ages.
Big Blue Pool at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. At Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, you really can’t go wrong with any of the pools. However, the Big Blue Pool is the main feature pool, and next to Stormalong Bay, is definitely at the top of the list for best pools at Walt Disney World. It is the largest, as far as square footage, of the pools at Walt Disney World. Keep in mind that the pool does require you to scan your MagicBand when you enter. You are greeted by Nemo and his friends in the big blue. The pool area in general is a great place to hang out with your family. There are ping pong tables, a Nemo themed playground area, and a kids splash play area. This pool is truly a themed, immersive experience…..you can hear the Finding Nemo soundtrack when you are swimming under the water!
Beach Pool at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The Beach Pool has undergone some wonderful refurbishment in the last few years. It overlooks the Seven Seas Lagoon, and you definitely feel as if you are on a serene beach. The zero entry area is wonderful, and the large slide is perfect for the older kids, and adults in your family. In recent years, they have added an Alice in Wonderland themed water play area for young children in the pool area. One unique aspect is the walking bridge in the pool area. It makes a great family photo spot!
