Pool Fun at the Disney Contemporary Resort

Excitement surrounds you from all corners of the Contemporary Resort at Disney World. Just think about it, on one side you can see the Magic Kingdom in all of its wonder, but on the other side, you have access to a large Pool with so many fun things to do. The Pool at the Disney Contemporary is huge and unique in shape with multiple circular-type pools running together, giving you different sections to enjoy. Two hot tubs are located around the pool, and one of these is built right on the edge so the adults can keep an eye on the kids playing. Everyone in the family will enjoy the 135-foot water slide that starts nearly two stories up and glides down to a splash area in the main pool. For the little ones, a splash pad adds hours of safe fun. As you walk past the pool, you can step directly into the white sandy beach overlooking the beauty of Bay Lake.

The Bay Lake Pool is a perfectly circular pool designed for all ages but requested to be a more quiet area for the adults to enjoy some time away from the excitement of the family pool. The Bullseye Pool is perched beside the Bay Lake, has a couple of cabanas and plenty of seating on the sundeck to read and take in the Florida sunshine.

Oh the fun it will be to take out your very own Water Craft on the Bay Lake. Enjoy taking your kids on a pedal boat or if you are looking for a little more speed, the searay raycers might be a better choice. Try out para-sailing or get up on a pair of water skis for a while. Just about any sport, you can imagine in the water can be done on the bay lake.


Being pampered is so much fun, and renting one of the Cabanas located around the pools at the Contemporary Resort could be just what you are looking for. You don't usually have the opportunity to indulge, so why not look into one of the Cabanas during your trip. Just keep in mind that there are only a few to choose from so you might want to get it booked early to make sure you get one.

Hot Tubs

Two (2) Hot Tubs are available at the Contemporary Hotel in Orlando Fl. One is located right in the center of the main pool but is camouflaged by streams of water to obscure it from the view of the main pool to some degree. The second Hot Tub is located near the Water Slide. Go ahead, take a soak and rest those weary bones for a while.

The Sand Bar

The Sand Bar is also the perfect place to get your adult beverage and sip it while watching the kids in the pool
