5 Ways to Make Your Pool Just Like a Disney Pool
Summer is in full swing and everyone is enjoying their time outside in the sun. While some are heading to their favorite neighborhood hot spots or even their own backyard, hopefully some of these warm days are being spent lounging and swimming in the pool. While everyone loves a good game of Marco Polo, waterproof speakers and dives off the deep end, there are many ways to jazz up the beloved pool days. Our favorite way? By Disney-fying the pool with some Disney pool gear and swag, of course.
There are so many ways to add Disney pool gear into the summer mix, whether it’s our favorite Disney tunes, themed attire or even festive pool accessories. Below, our five favorite ways to spice up our backyard fun. Grab your swim trunks and hit the water before Elsa decides to freeze our pools and speed up summer.
Just Keep… Floating
In the words of Dory from Finding Nemo, just keep swimming… except why swim when you can float? One way to add some extra flare and Disney pool gear is to top off the pool with some fan-favorite Disney character floats. For all our princess’ out there, try these adorable Disney Princess Floats, or for those who are speedy like Lightning McQueen try racing around the pool in this themed Cars pool tube. Or for our little ones learning to swim, they can also join in the fun with toddler-size floats like this Frozen toddler pool ring.
All the Disney Attire
How does one really incorporate themed Disney pool gear? Obviously by wearing it! Show off your favorite characters in a whole new way. Maybe you want to pretend you’re a mermaid and hit the pool wearing this adorable Ariel inspired 2-piece suit. Or maybe you’re a huge fan of The Incredibles, and you’ll love these Incredibles swim trunks. Already have a suit? No worries, sport a Tangled themed pool bag or Minnie Mouse inspired goggles to really up your Disney game.
