The Poly pool is too small for the number of people staying at the Poly. Personally, I have felt that at times it was too crowded to get into. However, my DD loves that pool and the volcano slide. A plus is that you can see Cinderella's castle at the MK from the Poly pool. The main pool at AKL is very large and never feels crowded. The Kidani pool is smaller, but still an ok size and the splash area at Kidani is great!

I love the idea of a split stay, and getting to experience both resorts.
This is all new to me, so any info is greatly appreciated, thank-you!!
We do splits all the time, mostly on room-only reservations. You can get a package with the DDP for one resort, but doing it for both would require that you buy a ticket (even just a one-day one) at the 2nd resort. Some people do a package for part of the trip and then pay OOP for dining on the other half. When we do a split, we generally like to end up at the resort with the larger room so we don't feel like we downgraded somehow (so we did AKL first, Poly 2nd).

And others that we will do while in the parks.
What we did was do all MK/Epcot days while at the Poly (including most monorail dining), and do all AKL/DHS/AK days when staying at AKL. So Chef M and 'Ohana at the Poly. Boma when at AKL. And T-Rex and Cape May really wouldn't make a difference -- you would have to use the bus system to get to either of them from AKL or the Poly. (Cape May is easy to get to from Epcot or DHS though).
