Best waterslide at resorts?

Not a fan of the water parks but considering split stay if a good waterslide is included...have tried CR, Poly, and AKL...the Boardwalk one looks the longest, as long as I do not look at the clown I think I would like it, any others that are worth a whirl?

Storm Along Bay at the Yacht and Beach Club has the best slide.

Definitely Stormalong Bay at BC/YC. For a moderate, CSR.

My kids did not care for the Boardwalk slide, but we did love the Boardwalk resort.

Worth noting that the slide at SAB is separate from the main pool complex and you have to cross the public walkway to get to it. Not a problem for adults but may be an issue if travelling with kids.

We're in the minority as we like the Poly the best. We did like the slide at SAB and thought it was fun, but it's not our favorite. We've never stayed at BWI, but that one looks fun to me too .

Port Orleans Riverside has a nice slide, it is sorta long. Never tried the other ones.

Coronado Springs has a great slide! I think it's the longest of the Mods and maybe 2nd longest of any of the resorts. FUN!

. This is a fun slide. The Coronado slide is well themed too.

Everything about storm along bay is great.

The animal kingdom lodge and Kidani are not great.

No question that SAB at BC/YC is our favorite pool, and our three boys rank the Jib Slide highest of all the resort slides they've tried (and they've tried many -see signature below!) But even though SAB is my favorite pool, I'd rank the BWI slide as my favorite slide (as long as I'm on it, and not looking at the clown!) It's a long slide, it's close to the pool and it's OPEN all the way down - no enclosed tunnels.

We haven't stayed at BWI (scary clown slide ) but SAB & Poly slides are pretty good. Although I did find the SAB slide stung my back. Maybe the seams?

Our family's favorite resort slide is at Bay Lake Tower. It's a great slide, and with younger kids we like the fact that they are always in our sight when walking to it.
