We were so kindly invited by the Petras family to join them for a swim tonight at the Beach Club Resort. It's main pool, Stormalong Bay (AKA arguably the most sought after pool on Walt Disney World property) has not reopened with the rest of the resort. So we swam at the Luna Park Pool (AKA the clown pool) at the Boardwalk instead. We got to talking... Is Stormalong Bay really the best Disney pool? In our opinion... It's actually not. It's absolutely great, but just not number one. Here's our top five list!
1. Wilderness Lodge Copper Creek Springs Pool
Come on! This pool has a constant stream that flows from the lobby spring, into a river, over a water fall, into the pool, and out into Bay Lake. It also has a fun slide and a kick butt view of the main resort building. The best!
2. Port Orleans Riverside Ol' Man Island
This pool is close to my heart because I grew up staying at this resort. But! The theming really is top notch. The pool is humongous and there's so many areas to have fun. Also, hammocks! Actually, the whole, tree shaded surrounding area is awesome.
3. Polynesian Lava Pool
Not only is the volcano such a cool pool centerpiece, you can stare at Cinderella Castle and eat a Dole Whip while you swim! Deserves a top three spot, no question.
4. Grand Floridian Quiet Pool
The zero entry, monorail view, and pool bar menu won us over with this one! This pool is consistently empty. We love the waterfall and slide. And! The view of Seven Seas Lagoon is the cherry on top.
5. Yacht and Beach Club's Stormalong Bay
Okay! This pool does deserve a spot on the top five list... It's just not number one! The sand on the bottom of the pool and the slide are so unique. There's areas for play and for relaxation (a lazy river!!!). Basically, this pool is huge and super fun. There's no denying it!
Honorable mention: Typhoon Lagoon's wave pool! It's not a resort pool, but a pool on Disney property that makes us so happy!
