That's not a bad view.

Except, you paid for a pool view, and I don't see ANY pool in that picture

They should have refunded you.

I paid for a pool view room at AKL once, too. We were on ground floor behind a thick wall of bushes (with cig butts, gum wrappers etc underneath). The noise was awful...we could HEAR the pool noise and Mara's outdoor seating area, but no way could we SEE the pool. When I called to request a change, I was told that we had paid for pool ACCESS, not an actual VIEW of the pool...it took a while to convince the CM that we were not getting what we had reserved and she finally grudgingly moved us.

I definitely would have gotten my money back for that one.

Sorry, I realized that after I posted it & I was too tired to delete it.

I think pee in the toilet constitutes a bad view! LOL!

Wow the dead tree is uggggly!

There might be a pool under there somewhere, but you certainly couldn't see it from your window.

I always get a standard view so I've overlooked parking lots and gardens I've never paid extra for a water view, what Disney considers a water view is comical.

However for out upcoming trip we are doing a MK view from the tower at CR, it will be the first time we pay for a view.

My guess is that people probably don't take pictures of bad views.

We had a view of the smokehouse once, at WL. I don't think we took a photo.

Yes you are correct, it was room 6048 at The Dolphin. We kept the shades closed the entire stay! The sound of construction vehicles backing up (beep...beep...beep...) woke us propmtly at 6am every morning. Off to the far right is part of the Beach Club/Yacht Club I think.
