Are the resort pools chlorine or salt water?

I was just wondering if the Disney resort pools are chlorine or salt water. My girls have some issues with chlorine pools so I wanted to know how to prepare.

POLY is definitely chlorine and I would suppose all the others are as well.

No saltwater. You might want to call ahead or explore further because I don't believe they use chlorine. Last time I inquired about the chemicals I think they said they used bromine.

Disney uses bromine, not chlorine, in all of its pools. It's pretty similar to chlorine, but is more stable and, importantly to my family that wears lots of brightly colored clothing, does not bleach the way chlorine does.

The exception to the rule is Disney's Art of Animation Resort, they are saltwater filtration.

I would say that they're a combination of chlorine and pee.
