Stormalong Bay (Hours: 10am to 10pm with seasonal adjustments)
Stormalong Bay is a sprawling three-acre pool complex shared by guests at the Beach Club, Yacht Club and Beach Club Villas. The complex has several distinct features including Sinking Sands, a shallow zero-entry wading pool for young children, a lazy river for those who simply wish to float on tubes enjoying the sun, and a dramatic slide originating from a sunken ship on the shore of Crescent Lake. Nearby Hurricane Hanna's serves alcoholic beverages and a selection of quick service foods.
Access to Stormalong Bay is restricted to guests staying at the Yacht Club, Beach Club and Beach Club Villas only. The policy is strictly enforced by use of wristbands issued to guests as they arrive. Each guest visiting should bring along their Key to the World Card (room key) as proof they are presently staying at an eligible resort.
Towels are provided. Lounge chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Life jackets may be borrowed (free) from stand near the pool. Tubes and other floatation devices are available for a fee.
Leisure Pools (Hours: 10am to 10pm)
Two Leisure Pools (a.k.a. Quiet Pools) are available at the resort. The Villa Pool is located in a courtyard boarded by the resort wing housing the DVC villa accommodations. The Beach Pool is adjacent to Crescent Lake near the walkway to Epcot.
Towels and lounge chairs are also available. Lifeguards are not present at the Leisure Pools.
