When it comes to choosing a Disney resort, everyone has different criteria. But almost everyone can agree that a great pool is high on the list. Here are our top 10 Disney pools to help you narrow down your choices.

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.

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.

“My 13-year-old son has been going to the Disney Parks since he was 10 months old. He’s been on at least one Disney Parks trip per year since then, sometimes more. Because of that, he often prefers that we hang out at the resort and resort pool rather than the parks. For today’s post, I asked him what his favorite pools are at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World and these were his picks.” – Kimberly


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.


The Best Disney Pools for Kids

“But you know Disney doesn’t do “any old” anything very well. So unsurprisingly, the swimming pool at your Disney resort hotel – usually pools, plural, if we’re honest – is going to be cool. It doesn’t matter if you’re staying in the least expensive Value room or the most expensive Deluxe, you and your kiddos won’t have to swim in a boring rectangular hole in the ground.” – Jennifer


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.
