Stormalong Bay is arguably the best pool at Walt Disney world. Located at the Yacht & Beach Club, it's a mini water park and a great break from the parks.

My family loves our trips to Disney World and we really enjoy experiencing all of the resorts on Walt Disney World property.  One of the things that Disney does really well are the pool areas at the resorts.  We’ve stayed at several and have never been disappointed with the pool areas. While the pool at Caribbean Beach was our favorite for quite a while, we recently stayed at the Yacht Club and had a chance to experience Stormalong Bay – and now we have a new favorite. We were beyond impressed by the Stormalong Bay pool “complex” and it’s without a doubt the best pool at any of the resorts on the Disney property.

But what’s all the fuss about?

Stormalong Bay is basically a mini-water park in it’s own right. I mentioned above that it’s a “complex” and with its several different areas including a beach, a lazy river and one of Disney World’s longest water slides – it truly is.  The pool is filled with 750,000-gallons of water and spans 3 acres!

One of the coolest features of this pool is the fact that the bottom of the pool is a layer of sand. There is a shallow beach area with a depth of 2-feet, for kids to splash, wade, and build sandcastles. Hurricane Hannah’s, the pool bar right next to the sandy beach area serves kids meals in little green pails (complete with shovels), so the kids can use those to play in the sand…..when they are done eating of course.

The 150-foot water slide is one of the highlights of Stormalong Bay. Just look for the giant shipwreck!  The slide begins across the walking path from the pool and guests will slide over the walkway below and end up coming out in the main pool on the other side. Keep in mind that you do have to exit the main pool area to access the slide’s entrance, so if you have little ones you will probably want to go with them over to the slide. As you walk up to the shipwreck area there is also a kiddie slide and a smaller pool, which are much quieter for people that need a quiet break from the main pool.

And then there is the lazy river. Relax and enjoy floating along the water path on one of the inner tubes provided. The lazy river is located right in the center of the complex and there are plenty of chairs around the area for you to use as base camp. The water depth in the lazy river area is about 8-feet, so if you have little ones, be sure to take advantage of the floatation vests that are provided by each Disney resort pool.

Like all of the Disney Resort pools, Stormalong Bay offers numerous activities throughout the day. Things like trivia contests, rubber duck races, dance parties and hula hoop contests. These activities are run by cast members and my kids have always liked participating in them. These activities are a great way to occupy the kids while you relax and watch.

When you’re done in the pool, Beaches and Cream Soda Shop is right there, so you can stop in for one of the best burgers in Disney to end your day.

Stormalong Bay is only open only to guests at the Yacht Club, Beach Club, and Beach Club Villas. Cast members are posted at the pool entrances and they WILL check your Magic Bands to make sure you’re staying there. Once they confirm that you are a resort guest, you will be given a wristband, so you can come and go all day. Oh and complimentary towels are provided at all pools.

There is also an elevated tanning deck and 3 whirlpool spas at Stormalong Bay.  It’s a really impressive complex of pools and every member of your family can find a place to cool off and have some fun at Stormalong Bay.
