Pools

Luna Park is the name of the feature pool, which includes a water slide made to look like a classic wooden roller coaster. Personally, I feel as though the big clown face takes away from the charm of this resort.

You can also walk to Epcot or Hollywood Studios, although the walk to Hollywood Studios is a pretty great distance, in my opinion.
