Before you decide which Disney World Resort is suitable for your upcoming vacation, you might consider a few extras. One of those extras that your kids will likely appreciate is if the pool has a water slide.
In total, there are 17 Walt Disney World Resorts with water slides. But, unfortunately, that doesn’t make your decision any easier, does it?
Below is a list of each Disney World Resort with a water slide. After that, we’ll take a closer look at each one. These slides range from family-friendly to fast and thrilling or somewhere in between.
So grab your favorite poolside refreshment and pretend you’re already sitting in the Florida sunshine. Imagine relaxing by the pool while the kids are thoroughly entertained.
At that point, you’re in full-on vacation mode. At least, I hope.

Water Slide at Disney’s Grand Floridian
Grand Floridian’s Beach Pool features a 181′ long water slide. You’ll climb a staircase to access the top of this slide that mimics a natural spring. This is a fun slide that’s fairly mild and a lot of fun for most ages.

Water Slide at Disney’s Polynesian
Next, Disney’s Polynesian has a unique slide at the Lava Pool. This waterslide is 142′ long. You’ll have to climb a staircase up the volcano to access it.
This slide is relatively popular and weaves its way around the rock formation before splashing into the pool. It even goes under this little footbridge.

Water Slide at Disney’s Contemporary
The Feature Pool water slide at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is relatively simple, with minimal twists and turns. It’s also perfect for younger children since it’s only 17′.
Water Slide at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
Over at the Wilderness Lodge, the Copper Creek Springs pool has a 67′ water slide. This slide doesn’t require climbing a large staircase to access, making it kid-friendly. You can tell from the picture below that this slide offers a mild slope.
Water Slides at Animal Kingdom Lodge
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge also has a kid-friendly water slide that’s 67′ long. You’ll find this slide at the Uzima Springs Pool at Jambo House.
It’s a relatively mild slide and doesn’t require climbing too many stairs.
Down at Kidani Village, the Samawati Springs Pool has 128′ waterslide. I think this is one of the best slides at Disney World.
While this slide is still reasonably mild, you’ll have to walk up to the top of the recreation area to access it. So the slide’s entrance is a good deal away from the pool.
Water Slide at Disney’s Boardwalk
Disney’s Boardwalk Inn has one of the most incredible water slides on the property, the Keister Coaster. That’s right, this water slide at the Luna Park Pool is designed to look like a classic wooden roller coaster! It’s 200′ in length!
While the kids love this water slide, you’ll want to know it has a pretty long staircase to climb.

Water Slide at Disney’s Beach at Yacht Club
And perhaps the best water slide in all of Disney Resorts is the Flying Jib water slide at Disney’s Beach Club. It comes in at a whopping 230′ long.
This slide shoots out from the shipwreck at the Beach Club, goes over the walkway, and dumps guests back out in Stormalong Bay. To access the slide, you exit the pool area and cross the walkway to the ship.
From there, you’ll climb a spiral staircase up to the top.
Get ready for the ride of your life! Parents, this slide is a lot of fun. However, it’s much faster than you probably anticipate.
In addition to having such a unique slide, Stormalong Bay comes in at the top of our list of the best pools at Disney World. We have an entire article for the pool if you want to learn more.
Water Slide at Disney’s Swan and Dolphin
Next door to Beach and Yacht Club sits Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort. You’ll find a fun and family-friendly water slide at the resort’s Grotto Pool.
Parents, the setup at this pool makes it easy for you to stay in the water and wait for your children at the bottom of the slide. Everything is in plain sight except the very top of the slide entry.
Water Slide at Disney’s Caribbean Beach
Moving on, we’ll take a quick look at the waterslide at the Fuentes del Morro pool at Disney’s Caribbean Beach. Actually, this pool has two water slides! One is 102 feet long and sits at the top of a lookout tower.
Most of this slide goes through a tunnel, so you can’t see it from the outside.
The second waterslide is milder and is a good fit for younger children.

Water Slide at Disney’s Riviera Resort
Residing next door to Caribbean Beach is Disney’s Riviera Resort. This resort offers a beautiful feature pool with an incredible waterslide.
Riviera’s slide is inside a tower. You’ll have to climb a spiral staircase inside the tower to reach the top of this slide.
At the top, there is a platform with traffic light control. When the light turns green, it’s your turn.
The cool thing about this water slide is that it wraps around the tower you just climbed. What kid doesn’t love a twisty slide?

Water Slide at Disney’s Coronado Springs
Our next stop is Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort to check out the Jaguar Slide! This slide is part of the Lost City of Cibola Pool at The Dig Site.
Coronado Springs has a pretty unique pool area. The pool sits at the foot of a giant Mayan pyramid!
As for the Jaguar slide, it’s 123′ feet long! You’ll find the staircase to access the slide on the far side of the pyramid!
Water Slide at Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside
Perhaps, one of the coolest Disney Resort waterslides is the one at Port Orleans French Quarter. This gentle slide is perfect for children and is shaped like a sea serpent.
And here’s a look at the top of the slide at Port Orleans Riverside Resort. This slide has a staircase that leads up to the top. It will drop you down at Ol’ Man Island before you know it.

Water Slide at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
Since Saratoga Springs is such a large resort, there are two feature pools with waterslides. Here is a look at the slide located at The Paddock Pool.
And below, we have a glimpse of the waterslide located at the High Rock Springs pool.
Water Slide at Disney’s Old Key West
Those planning a stay at Old Key West are in for a treat. The water slide is inside a faux sandcastle! You’ll twist and turn down this fun slide before dropping into the Sand Castle Pool.
