Please list all disney hotels with at least 1 water slide

I really cannot afford the water park option, so I want to book a disney hotel with just some water slides. I don't care about price. Just list hotels you know that have water slides on disney property, and also tell me how many water slides they have and, how scary they are. If you have been to two or more hotels with water slides please compare and contrast the water slides and also the hotels itself. If you haven't been to any hotel but have a friend or someone that has been, please list it to. Please give me some hotels here.

Hello! There is also one at the Poly. Not too scary but it does go through the volcano so can be a little dark for newbies. My DD8 loves it!

There is also a slide at SAB at BC/YC.

Hope this helps!

The Value resorts DON'T have slides, but all the Moderate and Deluxe hotels do. Each of the Mod and Deluxe hotels will have one slide a piece.

But really, you say you can't afford waterpark tickets, but you don't care about the price of the hotel? You'll come out ahead financially booking a value resort and paying for either one day waterpark tickets or the WPF&M option. The WPF&M option is $57+tax per ticket. But upgrading from a value to a deluxe hotel could be a difference of a couple hundred dollars per night.

Beach Club/Yacht Club. They have Stormalong Bay. It was the "water park" before there were water parks. It's really nice and the only pool Disney doesn't allow pool hopping. More details and pics here:

Stormalong Bay is probably the best resort pool at WDW, but BC/YC was opened in 1990. Typhoon Lagoon was opened in 1989. And River Country, WDW's first waterpark, was opened in 1976.

In addition to the good info you've already got on this thread, don't forget to look at this page that links to info on each of the resorts.

Wait a minute, Stormalong Bay is the only Disney pool that doesn't allow pool hopping? You might want to re-think that along with the "water park before there were water parks" statement.

Thanks for catching that! I was so thrown by the "waterpark before there were waterparks" comment that I misread the next line as just "Disney's resorts don't allow pool hopping". All Disney resort pools do not allow pool hopping, with only a few exceptions for sister resorts and DVC members. But even DVC members are limited as to what pools they can hop to.

This.

As PP have stated, the Moderates and Deluxes have one slide a piece. Contrary to what some poster think, NONE of the pools allow pool hopping except for POR/POFQ *unless* you are a DVC member an can pool hop amongst the DVC properties.

Danny K -- If you have park hopper tickets, it only costs $22+tax for the water parks option. You get as many water park entries as there are days on your tickets. This is much cheaper that a moderate or deluxe hotel, which would cost that or much more per day.

The Caribbean Beach Resort has two water slides at their main pool. Neither are super scary and I've seen younger kids, teens and adults going down both. The pool was redone just a few years ago and is now zero entry and has a pirate/fort theme.

All resorts have at least 1 water slide except for the value resorts. None of them are scary IMHO, except if you consider a very short time in an enclosed tube scary (CBR, Poly, OWK, maybe a few more).

IMHO the funniest slides are at CSR, POR and SSR. BC/YC and Boardwalk have long slides but I don't care for those for various reasons.
