The Grand Floridian Resort has two large pools. You can spend time in the
Beach Pool on the shores of the Seven Seas Lagoon, splashing under the
waterfall or on the slide, or choose to take a quiet swim in the Courtyard
Pool. Near the Courtyard Pool is a hot tub for relaxing soaks,
and a kiddie pool for little guest's enjoyment.
The Beach Pool has seasonal hours.
The Courtyard Pool is open 24 hours.
The Courtyard Pool
is a large free form pool that is open
24 hours a day. There are lifeguards on duty
until evening, but guests are free to swim at their own risk
after the lifeguards leave for the night. There is a pool house
serving drinks and snacks. Towels are available here for guests use
at the pool. There is often a ping pong table set up on the deck. This
is also where you'll find the hot tub. You can relax in the hot tub
while watching the little ones splash in the kiddie pool. The
Courtyard Pool is known as the "quiet pool". There isn't as
much action at this pool compared to the activities at the
Beach Pool. If you're looking for a nice
peaceful place to lounge or swim,
this is it.
