Volcano Pool with Water Slide

What a great themed Pool at the Disney Polynesian Resort. The towering 40 foot Volcano can be seen from various locations around the Polynesian Resort calling for you to join in the fun. Seeing the Disney Polynesian Pool pictures, you see the amazing design and layout in this South Pacific themed pool area. Tropical flowers and plants encompass the Pool location making it feel as if you are truly on a Hawaiian Island. The family pool is the Nanea Volcano Pool and is located just behind the Great Ceremonial House where you check-in. Viewing the incredible family pool for the first time, you can’t help but notice the 40 foot Volcano overlooking the pool area. The Nanea Volcano is used to complete the South Pacific Island theme of the resort but built inside is a 142-foot tube water slide that offers hours of fun. Lifeguards are on duty at the Family Pool during the day giving you some peace of mind as you lounge by the side of the pool. For a full pampering by the pool, you can rent one of the cabanas and be in a more private setting and be taken care of all day long.

For a quieter lounge around the pool, head over to the Oasis Pool located on the other side of the Samoa building beside the Lava Pool. This oval-shaped pool does not have any water slides or water fun areas so it will likely be much more serene than the Volcano Pool. Gentle sloping edges make for easy entry and exit from the pool and there are 3 cabanas located on the edge for rent.

  • Quieter Pool

  • Zero Entry Access
