Disney’s Art of Animation Resort offers a real treat for guests who enjoy swimming and water play. The Big Blue Pool is the single largest hotel pool at Walt Disney World with over 308,527 gallons of water! This swimming pool complex is conveniently located just outside of the lobby, Animation Hall and surrounded by the popular Finding Nemo Family Suites.
The Big Blue Pool is themed after the Disney•Pixar movie Finding Nemo. Your family will be totally immersed into the storyline of the film as the popular characters of Crush, Nemo, the jellyfish and other ocean creatures are everywhere!
This under-the-sea adventure pool offers much more than what you would expect at a Value Resort. Some of the family-friendly features of this pool include a sloping, zero-entry and underwater speakers where you can actually hear Disney songs and audio from Finding Nemo. The pool is open year-round and is heated to 82 degrees. You must be staying at Art of Animation in order to use Big Blue Pool. Lifeguards are on duty and cast members lead out in a wide variety of poolside games throughout the day.
Behind the Big Blue Pool is Schoolyard Sprayground. This is a fantastic interactive water play area for younger children with fun pop-up water jets and fountains. Squirt’s Righteous Reef dry playground is right next door with more set pieces and characters from the film.
The Drop off Pool Bar is beside the pool complex where you can enjoy beverages and snacks. There is even a refillable mug station! Poolside movies under-the-stars are shown nightly with entertainment for the entire family. Be sure to check out the Recreation Calendar to learn what activities are being held each day.
Don’t miss a cool dip in the Big Blue Pool during your next stay at Art of Animation Resort during your Walt Disney World vacation!
