These are just a few of the iconic pools you can find on your Disney World vacation! Disney World pools are always an important part of any Disney Resort. I know you want to soak up the Florida sun during your vacation! When picking your Disney Resort, you may focus your attention on finding a great pool for your whole family. The Jones family have been to all of the Disney Resort pools and I highlighted our favs!

Best Overall Disney World Pool – Stormalong Bay

Stormalong Bay

Hands down, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort is picked for the best pool at the Walt Disney World Resort, year after year. This 3 acre pool area includes a pool with real sand and a tube area where you can just relax in a tube and bask in the sun.  This pool also has the best waterslide at Disney World. The waterslide is a huge pirate ship!

If the pool area gets too busy, you can even relax in a chair or hammock on the beach overlooking a beautiful lake. In the evening, you can enjoy a swim in the pool and then a campfire singalong or movies on the sandy beach.  This pool area has fun for everyone, which makes Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort the most popular pool at Disney World.

Best Disney World Pool for Adults – Polynesian Resort

Polynesian Village Resort Pool

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort pool was recently renovated and now includes a child’s water play area! This was a good pool before the renovations and now it’s a fantastic pool!

Sitting right on the Seven Seas Lagoon, you can sit by the pool while enjoying magnificent views of Cinderella Castle, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and even the Electrical Water Pageant at night. The Electrical Water Pageant is the longest running parade on any Disney property!

With the addition of the new kids water play area and the refurbishment of the water slide inside a volcano, this makes a great pool for the kids to occupy themselves while mom and dad relax and enjoy the scenery. Definitely a top pick for the adults on your Disney World vacation. As an added bonus, Trader Sams is right next to the pool, so you can get that signature adult drink and cup that you’ve always wanted.
