THE MAIN FUENTES DEL MORRO POOL AT DISNEY’S CARIBBEAN BEACH RESORT
The main Fuentes del Morro pool at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is the best pool among the Disney World moderate 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.
In October 2018, the pool bar Banana Cabana re-opened. The bar menu is here.
The first thing you’ll see is paired fort buildings “defending” the “channel” into the pool.
To the right is one of two hot tubs…
…and most of the lounge chairs–Caribbean Beach lost more than a quarter of its rooms to the completed-in-2018 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.
Here’s another view of the pool and of the shorter waterslide.

THE SMALLER POOLS AT DISNEY’S CARIBBEAN BEACH RESORT
Each village has its own smaller pool, all similar.
These are typically closer, quieter and less crowded than the main pool. More on them is in the discussion of the villages at Caribbean Beach, here.
Note that the new next-door Disney Riviera Resort will have some attractive pools. Unlike the dining and shops here, which will be open to all, I expect that these will be restricted to Riviera guests.
