Vacations at Walt Disney World usually include a lot of time on-the-go as you explore the theme parks. During your runDisney racecation, you may be spending a little more time relaxing than usual. That may mean spending more time at the pool!
Here is a look at a few of the best pools at the Walt Disney World Resort hotels!
Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort
Stormalong Bay is such a great pool area, it could almost be called a water park! There are close to 3 acres to explore, including a sand-bottomed pool, water slide and even a lazy river. Even the littlest swimmers have their own play area, including their own water slide.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
The Nanea Volcano Pool continues the theme of the Seven Seas. With a water slide, poolside cabanas and a view of Cinderella Castle, the magic is all around. If you are looking for more relaxation, head to the Polynesian East Pool and enjoy the sounds of the islands.
(Note: The main pool area is under construction through spring 2015, and construction will follow after in the quiet pool area.)
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
Nestled in the serenity of the pines, the Silver Creek Springs Pool offers one-of-a-kind views. The pool actually starts as part of the Creek inside the resort! Enjoy a trip down the water slide, or follow the smaller kids to their own pool area. If you want a quieter feel, head toward the villas and enjoy the Hidden Springs Pool.
Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter
Doubloon Lagoon is the only pool that includes a water slide shaped like a sea serpent! The feel of Mardi Gras continues throughout the pool area, including the kiddie pool, poolside bar and whirlpool. Guests of both Port Orleans resorts can enjoy this pool, as well as the pool at Riverside.
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
The Big Blue Pool offers something that no other pool does – underwater speakers! Dive in and listen to familiar sounds from your Finding Nemo friends. Along with this zero-entry pool, there is a splash and play area for the smallest swimmers. The resort also includes two more pools, themed after Cars and the Little Mermaid.
No matter what Walt Disney World Resort you stay at, the pool continues the theme of the resort. This allows for a unique experience every time! Be sure to take in the surroundings near the pool areas, from playgrounds to music. There are a lot of ways to relax and enjoy the pool during your runDisney vacation!
