Are you practically a fish? Then you’ll love all the Disney Fantasy pools aboard your next Disney Cruise.
With so much to see and do on a Disney Cruise, sometimes you need a break from the almost endless activities that the Disney Fantasy has to offer. In addition to the entertainment, restaurants, and meet and greets, the Disney Fantasy also features several unique pools for you and your family to enjoy.
So just how many pools are on the Disney Fantasy? There are eight pools on the Disney Fantasy, including options with water slides and even an adults-only swimmin’ hole.
Given the ever-changing situation with COVID-19, some of the experiences described below may be different or unavailable during your cruise. Visit the Disney Cruise Line website for the latest information on the Disney Fantasy pools and other activities.
The AquaDuck is unique to the Disney Fantasy and her sister the Disney Dream. Dubbed as a “water coaster,” the AquaDuck, located on Deck 12, takes riders on a journey through 765 feet of a partially enclosed/partially open waterslide.
Riders board a two-person raft for a thrilling ride around the ship, including through the Forward Funnel, before gently splashing down and exiting your raft. For added fun, ride at night to see multicolored lights along your journey.
Satellite Falls on the Disney Fantasy is the perfect spot to relax and cool off during your Disney Cruise.
Wade in the water while enjoying a gentle rain curtain, then soak up some sun (or moon) on the Satellite Sun Deck just a few steps away. Whether you’re enjoying the water or relaxing in a lounge chair, you’ll be treated to stunning ocean views on the top deck.
Nemo’s Reef on Deck 11 is made exclusively for young children to enjoy. The enclosed 1,500-foot play area features fountains and splash pads surrounded by colorful figures of Nemo and his friends.
Little minnows even have their own water slide, so they won’t feel like they’re missing out on riding one of the larger slides.
Quiet Cove Pool
The Quiet Cove Pool is an adult’s only spot on Deck 11 where cruises can relax sans children. There are plush lounge chairs surrounding the pool and additional seating built into the pool itself.
Enjoy live music poolside or indulge in complimentary snacks at the nearby Cove Café throughout the day and night (until they close).
M-I-C yourself enjoying this family-friendly pool on Deck 11 featuring Mickey’s iconic face and a one-deck-high slide for kids ages 4 to 14.
Lounge chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and they can quickly fill-up as the day progresses as this is among hte most popular Disney Fantasy pools. Children younger than 16 must have adult supervision at Mickey’s Pool.
The “Number One Duck” (at least according to him) has his own pool on Deck 11. It’s a great alternative if you can’t find a spot at Mickey’s Pool.
Cast Members lead activities throughout the day for children—and children at heart—to enjoy. As with Mickey’s Pool, seating may be limited, and children younger than 16 must have adult supervision.
Huey, Dewey, and Louie are in charge of the mischief at the AquaLab on Deck 12 of the Disney Fantasy near the entrance to the AquaDuck.
The play zone features paint cans, showerheads, and geysers for little ones, randomly leaking pipes to plug, wheels and levers that pretend to control the AquaDuck, and Donald’s leaky boat, the Ducky Dinghy.
There’s also a wading pool where kids can cool off.
According to Disney, the Funnel Puddle pool on the Disney Fantasy proves “a little water goes a long way.”
Guests can pass the time sitting or splashing in the pool’s central fountain. Soak up some sun and enjoy the ocean breeze in this pool on Deck 12.
As with the other pools, you’ll want to check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App for operating hours.
