The Drop Off Pool Bar is a Quick Service dining location. This means that no dining reservations are needed to stop by for a drink or a quick snack. This is the perfect location to grab lunch during a relaxing pool day or unwind with a cocktail after a long day at the Disney Parks.


This bar will take you under the sea with theming inspired by the iconic film Finding Nemo. The Drop Off has a backsplash of blue ocean tiles with coral and sea life designs. Even the sign is made of a school of fish as a nod to the beloved movie. This all flows right into the grand theming and design of The Big Blue Pool, where you can find even more sea life and iconic characters like Crush, the sea turtle.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
