One of the benefits of using an Enchanted Destinations travel agent to help you plan your trip is the knowledge that we have about the resorts. When a customer tells us that they are interested in having a great pool at their Disney resort – we can help them choose the perfect place to create magical memories.
Here is a countdown list of our Top 7 Pools at DisneyWorld!
#7 Big Blue Pool – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
The Big Blue Pool is not only the largest pool (with 308,527 gallons of saltwater) at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort but it’s also the largest pool on Disney World property! And it’s one of Disney’s most unique pools.
The Big Blue Pool is inspired by the Finding Nemo movie and, not surprisingly, is located in the Finding Nemo section of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.
Music is piped in under the water (so you’ll hear it whether you are under or above the surface of the water).
Big Blue Pool Features:
- Zero-entry, saltwater pool
- 308,527 gallons of water, heated.
- Kid’s splash zone
- Drop Off Pool Bar

The Lost City of Cibola is a large pool set amidst the ruins of a Mayan temple. There’s a 50-foot pyramid structure right at the center of the pool area and a 123-foot waterslide for kids (and adults) to enjoy. The sprawling pool complex, known as “the Dig Site,” includes the largest hot tub at Disney (for up to 22 people), Siesta’s pool bar, a volleyball court, and a kid’s pool.

#5️ Uzima Springs Pool – Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
Uzima Springs Pool is the feature pool at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. This zero-entry pool utilizes 234,980-gallons of water. While it does have a modest-sized waterslide, the pool’s enchanting African-inspired setting is what really makes it stand out. Uzima Springs Pool is surrounded by palm trees and canopy trees. It’s so close to the Animal Kingdom Savannah that you actually see the flamingos – and some of the other animals – from the pool!

- 11,000 sq ft tropical oasis
- zero-depth entry point
- 67-foot-long waterslide
- Uzima Springs Pool Bar
#4️ Beach Pool – Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
We love this Alice in Wonderland theme pool that features cascading waterfalls and rock walls. There are great views of the Seven Seas Lagoon from the pool area. If you are willing to splurge, you can even rent a cabana for the day. Talk about doing it up in Grand Floridian fashion!
The pool area includes a fun aquatic play area for the kids.
The Courtyard Pool is a Grand Floridian’s quieter pool. The heated, zero-entry leisure pool is located behind the resort’s main building and offers a serene swimming experience.
Beach Pool Features:
- 181 ft waterslide
- Kid’s zone
- Beautiful setting w/ waterfalls and views of the Lagoon
#3️ Fuentes del Morro Pool – Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
The Fuentes del Morro pool is modeled after a Spanish citadel but just looks like a battle scene from the Pirates of the Caribbean . Spouting water cannons and a stucco fortress wall set the scene for this delightful Caribbean Beach Resort pool.
Like many on the list, this is a zero-entry pool for easy access.

- 2 slides (larger is 82-ft tall)
