Disney Coronado Springs Pool – What is So Good About It?


Sharing is caring!

Disney Coronado Springs Pool

The Disney Coronado Springs pool is found at the Dig Site location of the resort. This whole area is themed to create the idea of a archeological find of a Mayan Kingdom. That explains the huge Mayan Temple theme of the Coronado Springs Pool!

The Disney Coronado Springs Pool is a very generous size at 120 by 90 feet. It can get busy in the summer time, but generally it feels large enough. The pool is dominated by the 50 foot Mayan style pyramid at the back.

It is an incredibly impressive focal point of the swimming pool.  At the front of the Pyramid of the Sun, there are stone steps rising up to the top. Water runs slowly down from the top of the pyramid. This is only for decoration as you can’t walk up the steps of the pyramid!

Disney Coronado Springs Pool Water Slide

The most exciting feature of the Disney Coronado Springs Pool is the Jaguar Water Slide. The kids will love the 123 foot long, 16,2 foot high water slide. You access the water slide towards the right of the back of the Coronado Springs Pool.The slide is partially open and partially covered and a jaguar figure spits water at you as you pass!

The one problem with the water slide is that you can’t see your children once they have started to climb the stairs. They disappear for quite a while and then the next you can see them is when they splash into the water.

There is a life guard on duty at Disney Coronado Springs Pool when the slide is open. However, I never liked the lack of visibility when my kids were younger. You can walk up the stairs with them and view them going down the slide if this is a concern for you.


Disney Coronado Hot Tub

The Coronado Hot Tub is the largest of any on Disney resort property. This is somewhat surprising considering that Coronado Springs is a moderate resort. In theory it has a capacity of 22 people.

However, I would certainly not enjoy being in there with 21 fellow guests! The Coronado Hot Tub is not themed in any way. It is a relaxing place to be – unless filled to near capacity!
