Top 5 Pools at Walt Disney World Resorts

We absolutely love the pools at WDW resorts. With each resort comes a uniquely themed pool that makes vacationing in the hot Florida sun heavenly. Below, is a list of what we believe are the top 5 pools at Walt Disney World in a variety of budgets (moderate, value and deluxe category). 

Disney’s Beach and Yacht Club “Stormalong Bay”

Located in between Disney’s Beach Club and Yacht Club, this pool is absolutely incredible. This huge (750,000 gallon) pool includes a lazy river, 3 hot tubs and a one of the highest hotel water slides at Walt Disney World.

Best and most unique of all, this amazing pool is sand-bottomed! Kids (and adult kids lol) can spend hours and hours here swimming, sliding and playing with the pool beach sand.  A life-size shipwreck replica is the feature of this pool and can be seen along Disney’s Boardwalk. 

Coronado Springs – “The Lost City of Cibola Pool”

This pool has one of the most gorgeous centerpieces. The beautiful Mayan ruins theme includes a huge 50 foot pyramid where you can take the most incredible photos.

With the largest hot tub on Walt Disney World Resort property, you can be sure to get a chance to get in and unwind. The whole pool area is great for active families as there is plenty to do for everyone

Polynesian Village- “Lava Pool”

A massive volcano ties the theme together in this awesome deluxe category resort pool. With poolside views of the Magic Kingdom this one is hard to beat.

The beautiful waterfall located in the center of the pool makes you really feel as if you have transported to a far away island.

We love that Disney Imagineers added a welcoming hot tub as an addition to the great pool. Perfect for those afternoon evenings. Oh and Bruce’s favorite, you don’t need to travel far to grab a bite to eat poolside 😉

Art of Animation- “The Big Blue Pool”

This unique pool is zero entry (walk right in) and is the largest pool in all of Walt Disney World Resort. The adorable Finding Nemo theme is perfect for pool side ambiance.

The most incredible part of this pool are the underwater speakers! You can literally listen to all your favorite Disney songs. Outstanding! 

Caribbean Beach Resort – “Fuentes del Morro Pool”

This pool themed like a Spanish Fortress has the rich feel of old world St. Augustine Florida. The water cannons and shipwreck decor make your pirate dreams come true.
With 2 water slides, there is enough room for all to have a blast. This pool includes two 12-person spa pools and a nearby Banana Cabana pool bar which will make all your island dreams come true 😉
