1. Stormalong Bay
Disney’s Beach and Yacht Club Resorts
Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Beach and Yacht Club Resorts is probably the most popular pool on property. And with good reason! This three acre pool features a life-sized shipwreck replica with a 230-foot-long waterslide, lazy river, and elevated tanning deck. Kids will love the sandy beach play area as well as the Shipwreck Pool with a miniature waterslide.
2. Cozy Cone Pool
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
While the Big Blue Pool gets top billing, we love the Cozy Cone Pool. It’s often less crowded and you can relax in a cone-shaped cabanas! Inspired by the Disney Pixar film Cars, the kid friendly, 74,740-gallon pool is surrounded by life-sized models of Cars characters like Doc, Sally, Mater, and Lightning McQueen.
3. Lava Pool
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
The Lava Pool was revamped a few years ago and it is better than ever. The zero-depth entry pool features a volcano with a 142 foot-long waterslide, plenty of seating on the pool deck, and an endless hot tub looks over Seven Seas Lagoon with views of the nightly fireworks at Magic Kingdom. There is also a great spot for kids called Kiki Tikis Splash play area. It features two slides, wading pools, water jets and waterfalls.
4. Doubloon Lagoon
Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter
It’s Mardi Gras everyday at Port Orleans French Quarter and the party extends to the resorts pool. This pool features as 51-foot-long snaking sea serpent slide, a fun water play area for kids, whirlpool spa, and one of our favorite pool bars, Mardi Grogs.
5. Samawati Springs Pool & Uwanja Camp
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village
The Samawati Springs Pool features a 128-foot waterslide and is zero-depth-entry. And of course there is a nearby bar, the Maji Pool Bar , to grab food and drinks.
But what really sets this pool apart is the Uwanja Camp, a water playground with 3 distinct areas for kids. At Observation Station, children 4 years of age and younger can climb through cargo crates, unscramble animal images and frolic through a gently bubbling geyser and shallow cistern pool—while their parents watch from nearby. At Departure Zone, a leaky water tower and sneaky African irises squirt children 5 to 7 years of age, while at Base Camp, kids 8 years of age and up can douse each other with water cannons.
5. Copper Creek Springs Pool
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
One of the most beautiful pools on property, the Copper Creek Springs Pool is surrounded by nature and features a 67-foot waterslide built into rocks and hot and cold whirlpool spas. There is also a children’s play area and you can grab a meal or a drink at the new Geyser Point Bar & Grill.
7. Bowling Pool
Disney’s Pop Century Resort
Staying at a value resort doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun at a great pool. While Pop Century has a great main pool, the Hippy Dippy Pool, we love heading over to the 50’s section to visit the Bowling Pool. Shaped like a giant bowling pin, this 144,352-gallon pool is often less crowded than the main pool. It makes it a little more relaxing and the themeing and giant icons make it fun for kids.
8. Beach Pool
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Overlooking Seven Seas Lagoon, this pool features natural springs-themed setting, with cascading waterfalls and zero-depth entry similar to that of a beach. Kids will love the the 181-foot-long waterslide and the Alice in Wonderland themed water play area. To add a little luxury to your day at the pool, cabanas are also available to rent.
9. The Feature Pool
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
The Feature Pool at Disney’s Contemporary Resort doesn’t get much love but it’s a great spot to relax. Located on the Bay Lake side of the resort, you can also enjoy the beach, marina, and gorgeous views. Kids will love the 17-foot-high, curving waterslide and water play area. Poolside cabanas are available to rent by the hour or day, and feature a flat-screen TV and mini fridge.
10. Luna Park Pool
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
We get it. Giant clowns aren’t for everyone but this pool is a lot of fun! Luna Park is themed after a 1920’s amusement park and has a 200-foot-long roller coaster themed waterslide. Kids can cool off in the water play area and adults can enjoy the whirlpool spas and Leaping Horse Libations.
