    We've stayed at Grand Flor before and loved how the "wade-in" section of the pool there is SOOO toddler friendly. Do all resort pools have that same "wade-in" feature? We want to try a different hotel this year, but need that kind of po

    Hi Jessica,

    I agree with you - I love the "beach entry" or "zero-depth entry" pools.  They are great for little ones!

    While not all of the resorts at Walt Disney World have zero-depth entry pools, many of them do. Resorts with zero-depth entry pools include Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Resort, and Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  

    Many of these pool areas include great other activities for little ones.  For example, the Big Blue Pool at Disney's Art of Animation Resort makes you feel like you are Nemo under the sea.  Nearby, Schoolyard Sprayground is an interactive water play area for little ones.  Stormalong Bay is the pool area shared by Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.  At this sand-bottomed pool, young ones can dig in the sand and then wade into the water. 

    Whichever resort you choose, you'll have a great time.  Happy swimming!
