Resort Pools with Water slides?

I have a friend that wants to go down and wants a resort with a water slide. Which resorts have them and which one is the best? Thanks!

All of the moderate and deluxe resort pools have slides. You will get a lot of answers as to which one is the best as it's all a matter of preference. With that said, we've stayed at CBR, WL, AKL, BC, Poly, and GF and the volcano pool/slide at the Poly is our favorite.

Stormalong Bay at Beach/Yacht Club is the best pool on Disney property. Not sure the slide is that much better than others, but the rest of the pool complex is awesome.

The other slides are all pretty similar. All have their fans. Personally, I like the one at Coronado Springs. My kids loved the slide at AKL, but it was pretty unspectacular - they just liked that it was a slide.

The slide at the Beach Club is probably the best one at a Disney resort. Followed by the one at the Boardwalk, if you don't mind the scary clown face.

If a moderate is more your thing, the slide at CSR is the longest of those.

The slide at Stormalong Bay at Beach Club/Yacht Club is cool, but it's a pain in the neck if your kids on the younger end. If you take a look at it on Google or Bing maps, you'll see that the stairs to get up to the slide are totally in a different place than the pool, and you have to cross the main sidewalk to get to it. It's probably great for older kids who are old enough to do it on their own.

Coronado is the best of the moderate resorts.
