best value pool?
 
Hi everyone! We have a room only PIN that expires today :scared1: and I have been running the numbers all morning (sshh...I am supposed to be working:rolleyes1) and I think we can make it work for a 5 night in late Sept if we stay at a value. We have only stayed onsite for 1 night and now that the kids (twins age 8) are older I really want a trip in the bubble. I think it will be a wash price wise with a condo at windsor hills but of course less space. I have convinced myself that if there is a free dining option it will be worth it to stay onsite. Anyway:confused3 I would like to know what you think is the best value pool?

Appreciate the help!

All Stars Music has great pool activities all afternoon that I think your kids would enjoy.

The main pool at Art of Animation is brand new and is beautiful. Two highlights are a zero entry area and music that plays underwater. I've also stayed at pop century and thought the pools there were large and fun too.

I think all pools have afternoon activities. At least the ones I have been to.

I vote for AOA too! I think it would be a super fun place to stay! Zero entry is always a plus to me because I like to just sit in the shallows and sunbathe!

Unfortunately, you are correct. They all do. All day long. :furious:

The last few years they have offered FREE dining in Sept. Maybe you'll get lucky too!!

Just want to point out that you will not be able to use both a PIN and free dining. You can't double up on discounts. But I'm sure that FD would be a much better deal for you.

Really? Maybe just cause I'm a mom, but I can totally relax at the pools with people there. lol

One of my favorite pools is Boardwalk's main one with the clown slide.

AsMU has two really nice pools. One with fountains that my little one loves.

We did it! We are booked at POP for 6 nights in Sept. I am so excited I cannot even contain myself :dance3: We aren't going to tell the kids because it is going to require serious financial focus to make it happen but we think we can do it. The last time we were in WDW was 4 years ago. Last time we were there we stayed at Windsor hills for a week and 1 night at POP. I didn't like it after having a 3 bedroom townhouse and the kids had so much stuff. I'm hoping that because we won't have a stroller, car seats, naps, etc. we will enjoy being in the bubble - even if its less space. Anyway, a bit of a ramble...maybe I should start a PTR? ;) Thanks for your help and hopefully we will get free dining and be able to take advantage of that instead which would be AWESOME :goodvibes
