The Walt Disney World Resort is over 43 square miles of parks, rides, shows, restaurants, shops, recreation and more! With so many fun things to see and do its important to still carve out time to take breaks, relax and refresh! The best way to do that on a hot florida day is taking a dip in your resort’s pool. All of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels have multiple pools, each with it’s own theme and distinctive features that make it stand out.
Here are my top 3 picks for the best pools at Walt Disney World!
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Disney’s flagship resort the Grand Floridian is modeled in the spirit of a Victorian beach hotel. Here is where classic elegance meets modern luxury. Just like the rest of the resort the Grand Floridian’s pool does an incredible job of immersing you into a turn of the century beach paradise that will instantly transport you into vacation mode! The resort’s main pool, the Beach Pool features a gently sloping entry just like a natural beach would. The massive pool is also home to a 181-foot long waterslide! Relax on a poolside lounge chair or rent a plush cabana. From the pool area, you can enjoy gorgeous views of the white sand beaches leading to the Seven Seas Lagoon. Taking a break by the pool here is sure to put you in that vacation state of mind!
Disney’s Yacht Club Resort / Disney’s Beach Club Resort
Stormalong Bay is Disney’s largest pool on property. This water wonderland is over 3 acres in size! Stormalong Bay is shared between Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort. This expansive pool features a sand-bottom that will truly make you feel like you are in the ocean. This resort area has amazing attention to detail, on the shores of Crescent Lake sits a replica of a wrecked ship. From atop the ship’s mast guests can take a ride down a 230-foot long waterslide! Stormalong Bay is also home to a lazy river, the only lazy river at a Disney World hotel! Guests will also find 3 whirlpool spas, the perfect place to unwind after a fun-filled day in the parks! There is something for everyone in this water park retreat!
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
The Copper Creek Springs pool at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is one of the most creative pool designs! From the moment you enter the resorts main lobby you will be intrigued by a small gyser that periodically bubbles up. Upon further inspection of the lobby’s breathtaking water feature you will see that the gyser actually connects outside and flows into a tranquil river. If you follow the stream outside you will see where the river then leads to a breathtaking waterfall. The perfect backdrop for a family picture might I add! From there the waterfall flows into yet another river. This one leads down to the resorts main pool and creates the illusion that the river water is actually filling the pool! It is an incredible effect and very picturesque! The pool is one of the biggest on property and features a 67-foot waterslide. Surrounding this main pool guests will find hot tubs themed in the shape of natural hot springs to fit with the resort’s theming! On the opposite side of the pool guests will see another illusion effect that simulates the pool water connecting back into another stream that flows into Bay Lake! The theming here is top notch!
