    What are the rules for pool toys in WDW pools?

    Hi Gary!

    The incredibly themed pools at all of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels are not only a great way to relax and cool down during your magical adventures at the Walt Disney World Resort, but they are also a great place for kids (and kids at heart) to play!

    Although there are some restrictions, many pool toys are allowed, as long as they are being used safely and under adult supervision.  Water and swim rings, beach balls, "Nerf" balls, and other plastic pool toys are allowed, as long as they are not a distraction to the lifeguards on duty or a danger to other Guests.  That being said, the use of toys like hard frisbees, water squirting toys, snorkels, and fins are not allowed in the pools.  Flotation devices that are either secured or not secured to the swimmer are also allowed, but note that for the safety of all Guests, rafts and oversized floats that may block the lifeguard's view of the water are not permitted.  Also note that goggles and swim masks are allowed in the pools, but they can't be worn while enjoying the water slides.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask any Cast Member or lifeguard!

    Although the perfectly pixie-dusted pools are an amazing benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, make sure you check out all of the other benefits that will help you make the most of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  There are also plenty of other recreational activities throughout the Walt Disney World Resort like arcades, campfires, Movies Under the Stars, and so much more for you to enjoy!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
