Okay- So, I’m not gonna try and gloss this one over- I’m not sure that I actually took a snap of the Grand Floridians main pool with the 141-foot slide, that is just ah-may-zing (My
I was pretty excited to see the kids play here and snap some
My boys, ages 4 & 5 found this splash pad very entertaining, even though we had just come from staying several nights at Disney’s Polynesian Village & Resort, and their zero-entry Lava Pool and Splash Pad is nothing short of like having a water park attached to your resort. One key aspect of this splash pad that may help in making a deciding factor in which resort to stay at (based at least in part on pool), is that if your kids are toddlers up through about 6 years old, this splash pad gives you way more visual points to keep an eye on your littles. Several times my husband and I would lose “sight” of our two up by the enclosed water slide that’s on the Polynesian’s splash pad. We would have to send our 15-year-old up numerous times to check their status, as we just couldn’t see them. A few times they would actually stop themselves inside the enclosed slide at the Polynesian’s Lava pool splash pad just for fun, prompting a miffed lifeguard to reprimand them, and us to make them sit for a time out.
As you can tell from my pictures, you can see all the way around the splash pad at the Grand Floridian, making it a perfect choice for families with smaller children. Its also much more calm here, as its clear that this splash pad is geared more towards younger children, and the older kids stick to the main pools 141-foot long slide, that’s just right on the other side of the gate. Grab a couple of tropical drinks from Beaches Pool Bar & Grill (I recommend the Pina Colava for frozen & the Poolside Iced Tea for on the rocks), and grab a comfy canopy bed. You can truly feel your troubles melt away as you watch your kids have the time of their lives at the most magical place on Earth!
