Seeing the castle while swimming and maybe some fireworks is a huge plus to the Volcano pool. However IMO, the downside is how packed that pool area seems to be a lot of the time. I saw someone on here describe it once as a "bowl of people soup" and it made me laugh because that is exactly what we experienced. Could have just been when we were there, but there was barely room to swim. AKL gets my vote because it's much larger and there is room to spread out.

I love the AKL pool, it's huge, it has zero entry, and it's surrounded by so many tropical plants. The hot tubs at AKL are hot hot hot, perfect for soaking your tired self after a long day.

The Poly volcano pool has a great theme, and it within view of the castle, but it's kind of small. I do not think there are hot tubs there...

I would pick AKL over the Poly if the pool was the main deciding factor.

Take the boys over to Kidani Village pool area, they have a sizeable children's play area.
