7 Best Disney World Pools – Ranked
Here are a few tips before we get into the list.
Every Disney resort hotel has one large feature pool, and most offer at least one additional “quiet” pool (or leisure pool). The feature pools are themed while most of the smaller quiet pools are not.
Many pools have lush landscaping, interesting decorative features, and kid’s splash zones. Some have hot tubs, saltwater, sandy bottoms, or a lazy river.
Waterslides are found at all Disney Moderate Resorts and Disney Deluxe Resorts but NOT at Disney Value Resorts.
Pool hopping isn’t allowed. You have to be staying at the resort to use the pool.
You may notice that most of the pools on our list are zero-entry pools. This means they provide a beach-like entry that gradually slopes down into the water, becoming deeper with each step. Zero-entry gives children, the elderly, and those with mobility issues easy access to the pool.
Disney’s hotel pools (and Disney water parks) are all heated to around 82 degrees and are open all year. Orlando experiences summer-like weather for most of the year but you can certainly enjoy the pools during cooler months as well (December, January, and February).
