Boardwalk Resort Pools and Recreation
The themed main pool area here is Luna Park. Found on Disney's BoardWalk Villas side of the resort, Luna Park has a large pool, with a 200-foot water slide. This slide, the Keister Coaster, is fashioned after an old time wooden roller coaster. Two elephants shower guests as they pass by in the pool. A Jacuzzi is part of the pool area. Inner tubes and pool noodles are available to rent and lifeguards are on duty here. There are two quiet pools, one at the outer edge of Disney's BoardWalk Inn by the Rose Courtyard, and the other is on the Disney's BoardWalk Villas side by Community Hall. Adjacent to the pool area is the children's play area, Luna Park Crazy House.
For those who like to work out, Muscles and Bustles Health Club offers free weights, Life Fitness, Stairmaster and Cybex exercise equipment. Use of the facilities for Disney Vacation Club members and resort guests is complimentary. Located on the first floor by the Luna Park pool, the operating hours are from 6:30a.m. Until 7:00p.m. daily.

If tennis is your game, two lit surfaced tennis courts, located near Disney's BoardWalk Villas, are free to resort guests. Equipment and tennis lessons are available for a fee. Two, four and six-seater Surrey bikes can be rented and a pedal around the picturesque promenade is great fun.
