Pools & Water Slides at Fort Wilderness Campground

Adventure is around every turn at the Campground that makes up Disney’s Fort Wilderness, and a big attraction for the families are the two (2) pool areas. For Family play time, the Meadows Pool is the place to be with a large, outdoor heated pool, 67-foot corkscrew water slide and a hot tub for the adults. Plenty of seating for all and a Snack Bar with great options for lunch so you don’t have to leave the Meadows Pool when you get hungry. Also, at the Meadows Pool, smaller kids will have a blast at the Splash Zone with zero-entry access and two (2) smaller water slides just for them. A quieter pool is located away from all of the recreation at the Resort and is a great place for the adults to have some downtime.
