Leaving Stormalong Bay out, who has the best pool.
 
We have 5 nights booked at WLV, but the way our airline flies, Friday to Friday, we need to book to more nights somewhere. My DSinL wants to book somewhere with a really good pool for my DN7, WL pool is okay, no complaints, but it is kinda plain compared to some. We can't stay at Beach Club and have stayed at BWV, so my question is: not considering Stormalong Bay, which resort has the best pool, things that a 7 year old would like. Thanks, Dena

My kids can't get enough of the volcano pool at the Poly. :woohoo:

My boys love the volcano slide too, but I think their favorite is the clown slide at the BW.

Our favorite is the volcano pool at the Poly, which we actually like better than SAB.

Others may think I am crazy, but I think your 7 yr. old niece would really enjoy the pool(s) at Pop Century, not to say, she would really have fun at the resort. It is absolutely great for kids, and the adults would enjoy it as well. The pools at the Boardwalk and at The Polynesian are nice as well, but I think she would enjoy Pop Century the best. You may even save a little bit of money!

We really liked the Dig Site pool at CSR. The slide there is AWESOME, the pool is huge, they do fun afternoon activities with the kids, lots of tables/loungers, nice poolside bar that also serves food, a playground right off the pool area, and very nice restroom/shower facilities. Whole family really enjoyed it :thumbsup2 They also do the movies and marshmallow roast in the evenings and there is an arcade too but we did not take advantage of those while staying at CSR.

My vote after SAB would be either CSR or POly :beach:

New pool at GF is beautiful along with the Alice in wonderland splash area. Looks great for little kids.

My pool loving 9 year old would rate them in this order..

1. Port Orleans Riverside and Coronado Springs (tied)
2. Animal Kingdom Lodge
3.Old Key West
4. Poly.

He felt the Poly pool slide was too small and the pool was too crowded when we were there. I personally would have loved the pool but again, there was just no room.

I'd say the Volcano pool at the Poly, not only for the kids, but also for the parents. The lush tropical setting, with lots of shade if you want it, and lots of sun around the sand beach, if you want that is as well. Very well designed. You just have to get there early, because the best lounge chair locations get taken pretty quickly.

We are big Stormalong Bay fans because of the slide, but my kids were also very happy at CSR and the Digsite Pool.

The best are probably BWI, Poly, POFQ, POR CBR And CSR.

My DD loves the AKL pool..large and zero entry.. Nice slide and it's very relaxing when the bamboo sways and creaks

Csr pool is fun, as is dolphin. Also, I assume you know this, but yacht club also has access to sab.

I would say CSR. I like the Polynesian but always felt crowded at the Volcano Pool. We finally just stopped going to that pool and used the quiet pool instead.
I also like the pool area at POR. But, the pool slides at the moderates tend to be shorter/smaller than at the deluxe resorts. So, be advised as to that.
