THE MAIN FUENTES DEL MORRO POOL AT DISNEY’S CARIBBEAN BEACH RESORT

Review The Fuentes del Morro Pool at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort from yourfirstvisit.netThe main Fuentes del Morro pool at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is the best pool among the Disney World moderates resorts–only the main pool at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort comes close.

Here’s what Disney says about it on its website:

“Make a splash at this zero-entry pirate’s paradise, themed like a colonial Spanish fortress. Swashbuckling adventurers can zip by on one of 2 waterslides—including one measuring 102 feet long—and feel the spray of man-of-war-cannons. Little ones can cavort at the shipwreck play area, complete with mini slides, a crow’s nest and a barrel of laughs that dispenses a drenching downpour.

Two 12-person spa pools provide relaxation after a long day on the high seas, as do tropical drinks from the nearby Banana Cabana pool bar.”

The pool is distinguished by the best theming among the moderates, the second-best kids play area after that at Port Orleans French Quarter, and propinquity to dining.

During the refurb to Caribbean Beach that began in May 2017, the old pool bar has been replaced by this ugly trailer.

The first thing you’ll see is paired fort buildings “defending” the “channel” into the pool.

…and most of the lounge chairs–Caribbean Beach lost more than a quarter of its rooms to the refurb, so the pool is not as over-pressed as it used to be.

Part of the pool has a zero entry area.

There’s two water slides here, one more than a hundred feet long–you can see the end of it in the background of the image above.
