There's something for the whole family at the three-acre, beachside water wonderland, Stormalong Bay, offering aqua experiences for all temperatures and temperaments, from swirling waters to placid pools. Thrill-seekers can explore a life-size shipwreck replica, before braving the 230-foot-long waterslide, one of the highest at Walt Disney World Resorts. More languid guests can laze in the lagoons, catch the currents in the sand-bottomed pool or ride the lazy river by inner tube. For smaller children, there are two kids' pools and a mini-waterslide.
For outdoor fun, families can roast marshmallows around the campfire, before settling down to enjoy screenings of popular Disney films under the stars. Canoes and motorboats are rentable for memorable water adventures, while dockside or guided fishing excursions can be arranged. Guests can enjoy volleyball or tennis, before renting bikes to explore woodland or lakeside trails. The magical Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course is perfect for families or novice golfers, with five whimsical scenes featuring tutu-clad hippos, marching broomsticks and pirouetting ostriches
