So the resorts are ok with you lugging a cooler down to the pool full of booze? That sounds like the way to go!

Oh for sure we do lots of that as well. We are ME riders so we can't bring our own, but we love We Go Shop and they always bring us the goodies we need

We use a soft sided cooler and nobody has ever said anything to us. I think there is a policy about glass though.

I've always thought the Uzima Springs pool bar at the Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House was the best bar on property based on the requirements of the poster. Maji Pool bar over at Kidani Village isn't too bad either.

44 trips and no problems.....no glass, beer in cans.....transfer wine and alcohol to plastic containers and our drink mugs......grab a handful of ice from cooler, splash on the booze, sit back and enjoy.....we use can coozies on the beer to just be civil......never rowdy or over the top but rather pad my wallet than Disney's,...........cooler is a soft side, collapsable....medium sized....convenient!

Kidani Village, Polynesian (drinks only, no food), Hurricane Hanna's (take the drink down to the beach area), Gurgling Suitcase (the above post is right, it's not just a bar, it's like your living room away from home). I don't like Wilderness Lodge's pool bar although I love the indoor lounge. And I don't rent a car or check luggage, so no lugging my own booze.

Another vote for the Gurgling Suitcase, friendly bartenders and clients.

great thread. I do wish the CR had a better pool bar. It's mostly just a counter for take out drinks. The pool bar was nicer at BLT, but seemed to be located in the back of the pool area, almost as an after though.

like the past several posters, I began brining my own booze down a few years ago. A couple 1 liter bottles of Bacardi in my suitcase, and a resort mug to fill with coke has served me well. I also use ME and have never had a problem with the bottles packed in my suit case either arriving or leaving. I did make it up to the Top of the World lounge a few times though my last visit and bought beer. The ambiance and views up there are certainly worth the price of a few drinks.

Will be staying at both POR/AKL for our honeymoon. Glad to know AKL has a great bar at Jambo and Kinadi!

Leaping Horse Libations at the BWV is my favorite of them all! The bartenders are like our friends, as we have been going there for years (80+ trips).

I am not a fan of the Gurgling Suitcase at all, though I realize it has many fans. I sat there one day listening to the bartender and a customer complain about "Yankees," and I don't mean the baseball team. Not cool. And the bar area is way too small. I know they have picnic tables outside, but that isn't a bar. JMHO

Trout Pass is a good one, too. I love the theme. Friendly bartenders there, also.

I have also enjoyed the pool bar ar ASMu.

I like the pool bar at CSR. However we mostly make our own drinks, unless I want a mojito then I visit the bar.

I like both Petals at Pop and Banana Cabana at CBR - both are open till midnite I believe. The pool bar at Kidani closes at 9 and there is no where else at Kidani to get drinks at night

That actually leads me to another question...

Do you know where I can get a listing of the pool bar hours at?
