Welcome to this month’s Magical Blogorail Green loop. Today we are discussing the best Disney resort pools.
When my family went to Walt Disney World this spring, we stayed at the Pop Century Resort for the first time. Actually, this was our first time ever staying at a value resort. We chose a value resort so that we could afford to stay longer, but I worried that the pool wouldn’t be as interesting as the pools at the moderate resorts. After all, when you have young children, the hotel pool is extremely important. It turns out that I worried for nothing, because the Hippy Dippy Pool at Pop Century is awesome!
The Pop Century Resort has three pools. The Bowling Pool is shaped like a bowling pin and is located in the 1950’s section of the resort and the Computer Pool is shaped like a computer and is in the 1990’s section. But the biggest pool is the Hippy Dippy Pool, which is located right behind Classic Hall in the 1960’s section.
The Hippy Dippy Pool is shaped like a flower and fits perfectly with the theme of the 1960’s section. Like all of the pools at the value resorts, it does not have a slide. This was the fact that had me worried ahead of time. I wondered if my boys would have fun in a pool without any special features. After only five minutes in the pool, it was obvious that my boys were having the time of their lives.
There are two features of the Hippy Dippy Pool that my boys really loved. First, it may not have a slide, but it has four huge flower shaped water jets around the pool that are lots of fun.
Second, the way the pool is designed is perfect for young children who are too old for a kiddie pool. Unlike most pools that have a shallow end that gradually gets deeper as you move toward the other end, the Hippy Dippy Pool is 3 feet, 6 inches deep all the way around the pool and gets deeper (4 feet, 9 inches) as you move toward the center. In other words, you can climb into the pool from anywhere and still be in shallow water.
So, if you are looking for a value resort at Walt Disney World with a pool your kids will love, you should give Pop Century Resort and the Hippy Dippy Pool a try!
