I love this post. It mouse level wasn't as high in the Cats area.

We stayed at All Stars last year and there was none of this, some fun afternoon games but no loud music so presuming it's a new thing? Going to POR next year think my children will love it (well DD will not sure about DS 15 lol) but think i'll be requesting a room by a quiet pool just in case

I agree it is most annoying. It was sooo loud at the Poly last year that I complained and they turned the music way down so you could barely hear it. The bartenders said they coudnt stand it either and hoped more would complain so they would get rid of it. It never failed that they would wheel that giant speaker right next to our table and get ready to blare it. I complained every day. LOL

I like kids, but I agree that there is no need to have the poolside music and activities blaring for hours. An hour at most seems reasonable.
An adults only resort wouldn't guarantee a relaxing atmosphere. There would always be the adults who want to party at the pool - all night long. There have been times when we have been at the "quiet" pool (unthemed) and had tons of noise from other guests (adults) taking over the pool with their boom boxes and parties.

I'm totally with you on this one. We stayed at WL last year and had an inside courtyard view. Well, with the view came the noise. We could even hear it in the room. The pool area there is already so small that it was anything but relaxing. I think perhaps games and music for an hour or two a day or even alternating between a game and then no music but 6 hours of it was horrible.
It's easy to say, "go to the quiet pool" but I like the outside bar for a drink or snack, the waterslide and larger size of the main pools - I guess we can't have it all!

I imagine that if a guest took a boom box poolside and started yelling at people thru a karaoke machine, imploring them to dance to the music and what-not, the resort would quickly respond and ask them to cease...

I find the all day Pool activities annoying. Once a day for maybe an hour or so is ok. Personally I like relaxing around the pool and enjoying the atmospheric music and resort sounds.

Soo true!!! Drunk loud adults at all hours- morning, noon and night!!! I can't stand that.

Also, the poster who commented on WL courtyard rooms, it can be true and that totally stinks. We stayed courtyard once and never again. On top of the noise level it just felt sooo un private.

Pool activities don't bother me for some reason. I'm 30 with no kiddos yet. I actually laugh at the young, cheey cm's on the mic running them. I can sleep through anything!!! Hahahhaa!! We were just akl in october and i laid out for a few hours during games and just zoned it out. You could wear earbuds. It's Disney, it's kinda par for the course kwim?

I've probably stayed at the Poly 300 nights, most in the Samoa building facing the volcano pool and I've never seen an obnoxious drunk adult. I've never seen them at GF, WL, CR either. I'd take a drunk adult over 3 hours of blaring music any day. LOL

You have a point. But, I still think an adults only resort would do very well.

Biggest two for drunk adults for us were Poly and CSR!

Until the guests who wanted to bring their new infant child with them. Or the guests who are dying to stay there, but they have a 10 yr old and since Disney requires a 10 yr old to buy an "adult" ticket, they should be able to stay there.

We stayed at the Beach Club last year in late October and the Yacht Club this past October and it seemed like the pool activities at SAB had been amped up a bit.

Last year, things didn't really get noisy until late afternoon and we actually enjoyed watching the kids enjoy the pool party and the lifeguards doing that Cha Cha Slide dance every day. This year, it seemed like the pool was loud much earlier and for much longer. We were by the pool around 11:00 am and they already had the loud music playing. I can't remember if there was someone who seemed to be a DJ or if it was just Top 40 music playing but the music was basically blaring. It was pretty loud. Then they kept getting on the microphone announcing that they would be starting games soon for at least a half hour to 45 minutes. When the games started, they kept the music blaring behind the yelling CMs. It was just too much.

I can't be sure but I seem to remember that last year they had the games without loud music in the background and no dance party style music until the actual pool party. Like I said, I don't mind the actual pool party or even the games, I just don't think we need resort music playing, Top 40 music blaring at the same time AND CMs yelling instructions to games on the microphone all at once.
