THE POOLS, BEACHES AND WATERFRONT AT DISNEY’S CONTEMPORARY RESORT

There’s two pools, a kids water play area, a hot tub, and extensive beaches at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. All are found on the Bay Lake side of the Contemporary tower.

Water Play Disney's Contemporary Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

On the far side of the slide is this kids water play area. My last few visits it has not been active.

Hot Tub Disney's Contemporary Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Also here is a small hot tub.

Other Pool at Disney's Contemporary Resort from yourfirstvisit.net
A second good-sized pool just steps away from the main pool seems to perch over Bay Lake.

Pool Cabana Disney's Contemporary Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

Cabanas are available for rent at both pools.

Neither pool has special kid-appeal, but this simpler second pool tends to see more adults, and the main pool, with its slide, more families.

There’s also a lot of beach here…

Beach Garden Wing Disney's Contemporary Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

…some of it tucked behind the South Garden Wing.  When we were little, my sister and I loved this secluded beach.

Movies by the Pool at Disney's Contemporary Resort from yourfirstvisit.net
At night, movies are shown either on the beach or near the main pool.
