Best pool?

We have always stayed at value resorts, but we want to try a mod or even a deluxe (if we get a good discount). My kids will be 10 and 7 and love to swim, especially water slides. The two pools I know about are the Polynesian and the Beach Club. What other pools would be great? In case we can't afford a deluxe, which mod has the best pool? If there is already a thread on this, can someone give me a link? Thanks!

I would say that CSR has a great swimming pool in the mod category.

Between CSR, POFQ, and POR, I think Coronado has the best pool. I don't have experience at Caribbean Beach (although ill be there in 2 weeks!), so I can't include that one in my comparison. I thought the Mayan temple feature pool was really cool. POFQ was nice, but I didn't think there was as much room on the patio for chairs, etc. (could be that it was just a bit more crowded when we were there) I also thought the POFQ pool was more shaded... I was actually cold there! This would probably feel great in the hot summer months, but in October it was too chilly for me.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

I agree. CSR does have the best mod pool by far but it doesn't stop there. Its waaay better than a lot of the deluxes too. Best pool with best slide I think goes to BWV though.

Unless of course your have a fear of C L O W N S....lol

My kids love the pool and slide at CSR. We *all* like the slide - it's so fun!

I agree, CSR has the best pool, especially at night when it's all lit up! Of the Deluxe resorts, YC/BC definitely, it's a mini-waterpark!

THIS is why I will never stay at BWI LOL!! It's a shame, if it weren't for the nightmare pool, it would be top of my list!!

Another vote for CSR for the best mod pool. My kids LOVE Stormalong Bay at YC/BC, but the CSR pool comes in a close second.

Are adults allowed to go down the slide at CBR? Bit of a chicken but I'd like to try and build my courage a bit.

Out of the deluxes, our favorite is the volcano pool at the Poly and we've stayed at WL, AKL, Poly, BC, & GF. The only mod we've stayed at is CBR and we enjoyed that pool as well (and it has since been redone).

Love the Luna Park Pool. He's not a scary clown

The CSR pool looks awesome. (Great pics Ilivetogo!)

Best pool on property is SAB at BC/YC, second place Volcano pool at Poly, IMO. Also love the pool at AKL.
