Disney Cruise Line Recreational Activities & Pools

Just because you're on a cruise ship, doesn't mean you can't keep up with your workouts!  All the Disney ships are equipped with top of the line recreational areas.  There are pools for every age group - from the Mickey Pool and splash zones for the littlest ones, to the Quiet Cove Pool for adults only.  Every kind of sport you can imagine is available - basketball, shuffleboard, ping pong, soccer, volleyball, and even golf!  If you just want a traditional workout, visit the Fitness Center and check out the weight machines and ellipticals.  Aerobic and yoga classes are offered and personal trainers are available if you need a little guidance. 

Disney Cruise Line Pools

The pools are located on Deck 9 on the Magic & Wonder and Deck 11 on the Dream & Fantasy. All are surrounded by lounge chairs, with tables and chairs around the perimeter. At each pool there's a nearby bar area.

Mickey's Pool (Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy)

Designed for the littler Mouseketeers, this pool features Mickey's famous profile, with a continuous filtration system that is designed for the swim diaper set. There's a great slide for the kids that's in the shape of Mickey's arm. The area under Mickey's hand has fountains and splash areas for toddlers to enjoy.

AquaLab (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Fantasy)

The 1,800-square-foot space offers several interactive features. Kids can jump around the pop jets, geysers and bubblers. The infants/toddlers splash area has been re-themed around Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Donald's nephews. The Twist N' Spout water slide sends guests twisting back and forth across the ship in 250 feet of twists and turns. This slide is for guests between 38 and 64 inches tall.

Goofy's Pool (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder)

Centrally located this is the family pool. On the bottom is a picture of Goofy and there are two large hot tubs for Mom and Dad to enjoy while keeping a watchful eye on the kids. The pool can be covered and will be closed during some deck parties.

Donald's Family Pool (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy)

This family pool is located midship. It has a maximum depth of 5 feet, making it perfect for adults and children alike.  Lounge chairs surround the pool and cast members offer activities here throughout the day.  This pool is conveniently located near the Mickey Pool so families can enjoy fun in the sun together!

Quiet Cove Pool

This pool and surrounding area is adults only, ages 18 and up. There are two oversized whirlpool spas at one end of the pool making this the perfect spot to relax. On the Wonder there are cascading waterfalls into the pool. On both the Magic and Wonder, Signals, the poolside bar, is a great place to get the cocktail of the day or other tropical libation.  On the Dream, the Cove Bar is an elegant swim-up bar.  Enjoy your cocktails without even getting out of the water!

Quiet Cove Pool

Nemo's Reef (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy)

This children's water play area is next to the Mickey Pool.  This 1,500 square foot area is surrounded by glass with a limited number of entrances to prevent kids from "escaping."  It is shaded from the sun and is handicapped accessible.  Nemo's Reef features Nemo, Dory and Marlin characters that spray water, a mini-size Mr. Ray water slide, and several other interactive features.

AquaDuck (Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy)

The AquaDuck is the first ever water coaster at sea featuring 250 yards of transparent tubing that sends you twisting and turning over the top decks and out over the sea. This coaster is 765 feet long and features a 4 deck drop.  Riders must be 42" tall to ride with someone else, 54" to ride alone.  If a rider is under 7 years old, they must ride with someone 14 years of age or older.

Disney Cruise Line Sports


These spacious courts are also used as an outdoor activity area for the kid's clubs.

Basketball on a disney cruise


What's a cruise ship without a shuffleboard? Not one to break tradition, this popular game is available on both the Magic and the Wonder.

Ping Pong

Have you ever played ping pong on a cruise ship? Bring your sense of humor since the movement of the ship can sometimes send you scurrying after your "perfect serve"!


Want to work off last night's dessert? Put on your Nikes and head to the track which is 1/3 of a mile around. Some of the space is enclosed, but for the most part you'll have incredible views while you enjoy your jogging on the Disney Cruise.

Goofy's Sports Deck

The Disney Dream and Fantasy has an all-new open air sports deck.  This innovative complex is located on Deck 13 and has activities for all ages while you enjoy the views of the sea.

  • Miniature Golf:  This 9-hole course was designed by Goofy and his son, Max, so you may find yourself trying to golf with a crooked club!
  • Virtual Sports Simulators:  Don't want to play actual sports?  How about virtual ones?  Digital sports simulators provide virtual games such as soccer, golf, tennis and basketball. 
  • Sports Courts:  The full-size basketball court can be changed to a mini soccer field or volleyball court. Two mini-sized courts are available for the younger kids to play soccer or basketball.
  • Other activities: Ping Pong, Foosball tables, and a Walking Track around the Sports Deck. The walking track is .4 miles per lap - 8 laps equal a 5K race.
