Over 100 televisions line the walls of this sports-themed eatery.  Live broadcasts are featured nightly including special guests from the sports world and audience participation segments.  The cuisine is typical sports-bar fare:  wings, chicken strips and burgers.

Arguably the finest seafood served on Walt Disney World property can be found at the Flying Fish Cafe.  The menu changes frequently to suit the season and the catch.  Steak and pasta dishes are available, but this place is all about the seafood.

A "trattoria" is an italian restaurant serving simple food.  "Al forno" is italian for "food baked in an oven."

Trattoria al Forno features Neopolitan-style pizza baked in wood-burning ovens with fresh mozzarella made daily.  Other dishes highlight cuisine from Italy's various regions.  Wines are 100% Italian from historic regions including Tuscany, Veneto and Piedmont.  Over 60 selections are available by the bottle and 25 wines by the glass.  Signature cocktails, Italian beers and sodas are also available.

Luna Park (Hours: 10am to 10pm with seasonal adjustments; slide only open when lifeguards on duty)

The Luna Park pool complex upholds the New Jersey boardwalk theme of the resort with its rollercoaster-like slide.  Keister Coaster is a 200-foot waterslide designed as a nod to the old wooden rollercoasters, right down to the faux clown's head which ultimately deposits guests into the pool.  Also featured within the complex are the Leaping Libations pool bar, a separate swimming area for infants and toddlers, and a whirlpool spa.

Towels are provided.  Lounge chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Life jackets may be borrowed (free) from the Community Hall.


Leisure Pools (Hours:  10am to 10pm)

Two Leisure Pools (a.k.a. Quiet Pools) are available at the resort.  Despite the name, all guests are welcome to enjoy these swimming holes.  One is located right in the heart of the Villa comples, while the other is on the Inn side of the resort.

Towels and lounge chairs are also available.  Lifeguards are not present at the Leisure Pools.
