Choosing a Disney Resort can be a hard decision. How do you choose, price, location, pools? There are 31 different Disney resorts to choose from and you normally just choose one so here is one way to narrow down your list, choose by pool!

I think the pool is an important factor on your Disney trip because it’s offers you and your family a nice relaxing place to come back to in the middle of the day or for a late night swim.

This pool was always my childhood favorite. The pool features sand on the bottom and it was an absolute novelty to me and still is! From atop the mast of a life-sized shipwreck replica, you can zip down a 230-foot-long waterslide, one of the highest hotel slides at Walt Disney World Resort.

Yes! Pools are such an important part of picking out at a hotel at Disney World. It gets so hot you will find that you and your family will spend a fair amount of time at the Disney resort pool.
