Best Walt Disney World Resort Playgrounds

by Shannon

If your kids are anything like mine, they LOVE playgrounds (even on vacation!). My kiddos are toddler and preschooler age (2 and 4) and I always consider whether a hotel has a playground when traveling! Playgrounds are a great way to burn energy (especially on non-park days) and my kids would spend hours playing at the resort playgrounds if we let them!

Fortunately, there are lots of Walt Disney World resorts that offer playgrounds on property! Here’s a full list of where you can find them!

Walt Disney World Resort Playgrounds

  • Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort
  • Disney’s All-Star Music Resort
  • Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

  • Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
  • Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
  • Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
  • Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
  • Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Favorite Disney World Resort Playgrounds

Saratoga Springs Resort Playground

This one is my personal favorite for the theming alone! Plus you have a beautiful view of Disney Springs from here (and can walk between the two!). My kids LOVE this one!

Port Orleans Riverside & French Quarter Playgrounds

You can visit either playground when staying at the Port Orleans resorts!

French Quarter:

Riverside:

Animal Kingdom Lodge Playground

I love that you can walk and see the Savanna just a few steps from here!

Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House Playground

This is adjacent to their water play area and it is a FAVORITE in our house! This is our home DVC resort, we love staying and playing here!

Old Key West Resort Playground

This entire playground is sand! My little guy loved that.

Boardwalk Villas Playground

A smaller playset for extra little ones is available here!

Caribbean Beach Resort Playground

Theres a nearby sandy area with hammocks too!

Art of Animation Resort Playground

This one’s theming is obviously amazing! There are slides hidden inside the reef!

This is great! Thank you! Do you have to be a guest at the specific hotel to use the playground like you do the pools?

Are the playgrounds open to everyone? Or only if you are staying at that resort? Thanks!
