Take time out of your busy, rush rush rush, theme park schedule when visiting Walt Disney World to enjoy the pool land recreational activities offered at all of the Disney All-Star Resorts. Each resort – Music, Movies and Sports – offers themed activities and pools for guests wishing to relax and enjoy Florida’s weather. There are a lot of different recreational activities offered at the All-Star resorts, you may have to take an entire day to enjoy it all.
All of the pools are open daily from 7 a.m. until midnight with lifeguards on during the day. For winter swimming the pools are heated to 82 degrees, if you dare to get in the water when the air temperatures are in the 50s. Brrr!
For jobbing and walking enthusiasts there is a jogging trail that circles around all three of the resorts. The trail is approximately one mile long. Trail maps are available at the front desk at all three resorts.
The sports resort is home to Game Point Arcade which offers video and pinball games where guests can earn tickets to redeem for prizes. The playground is located between the Surf’s Up! And Touchdown! Buildings. The main pool is themed around the beach and surfing and holds more than 240,000 gallons of water. It looks like a giant wave and is surrounded by surfboards and dunes. The other pool, Grand Slam Pool, is shaped like a baseball diamond with Goofy in the center of the pool as the pitcher.
The All-Star Music Resort offers Movie Under the Stars featuring Disney movies held on select nights by the pool. Just like the Sports Resort the arcade, Note’able Games, offers a variety of pinball and video games where you can earn prizes. The Calypso Pool is the main pool at the Music Resort featuring the Three Caballeros – Donald Duck, Jose Carioca and Panchito – in the center of the pool. The second pool at this resort is in the shape of a grand piano and holds more than 100,000 gallons of water.
The newest of the All-Star resorts, Movies, is themed around many of our favorite Disney films, including Toy Story, Might Ducks and Fantasia. The Reel Fun Arcade offers video games, pinball games and prizes. The main pool is themed after Fantasia complete with the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Mickey Mouse, who stands a top of a wall of water. The other pool is designed after a hockey rink featuring the Mighty Ducks.
