My favorite is Uzima Springs at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. It's lush and well themed, has several spas, zero entry and a large size, a great bar, lots of tables to eat at, and is right by the flamingos. It's beautiful and secluded, and without a doubt my favorite. I love using the hotel pools and this one is my favorite!

Here are a couple of articles that we've published on Disney Pools:

Storm Along Bay is not so good. In fact the Beach Club is not so great. Stay away, you're not missing anything. crossfingers

We haven't spent a ton of time at the pools, but the ones that we have explored, I have very much enjoyed. At Port Orleans and Coronado Springs, we just did the quiet pools. I'm a big fan of the sandcastle waterslide at OKW and I like the Paddock Pool at SSR. It has one side that's zero entry and a pretty fun waterslide. I thought that the slide at BLT looked cool, but it makes you hit the water really fast. On a night that was a little bit chilly, that was not appreciated! The main pool at Wilderness Lodge was under construction that last time we were there, so we missed out on that. We swam at Boardwalk, but a storm swept through before we had a chance to try the clown's mouth slide.

I really liked the Big Blue Pool at AoA. Though the rumor is that the lifeguards do not seem to feel the same way. It is supposedly the hardest of all the pools to patrol.

I love the waterslide at Boardwalk. We went on that a lot last time. It was my fiance's first time on a waterslide and he loved it. And my little Cousin kept harassing us to go on it. The bar here is also very cool with the old theme of the New Jersey Boardwalk and the High Diving Horses (haha horse lover can you tell?) The quit pool is nice too as there is usually not a lot of people and last time we went they had a movie showing on a big screen while you swam. The night we went it was Wall-E but unfortunately my fiance was absent minded and got distracted by the movie and forgot to remove his cell phone from his pocket, needless to say phones don't stand up to an hour long swim..... eek

While not a Disney owned Resort I have also been the Swan and Dolphin Pools (they share a pool) there is a neat slide there. And there is a wall with a over hand that has water pouring off of it. This pool seemed pretty busy most of the time as it was for both of the hotels though.

Wilderness Lodge is my favorite Resort. Though the pool seems like it could be better. The slide isn't that thrilling as its pretty small, but I do love how pretty it is and all the water from the main lobby runs down into or appears to anyway, not sure if it really does. But its super cool. The DVC pool is the pool I have lots of memories at though. My grandparents had a DVC at this Resort and the room we always got over looked this pool! So they could sit on the deck and watch me swimming around and keep an eye on me without coming down. It was pretty awesome.

I have stayed at Saratoga Springs and the Poly but don't ever remember doing the pools there.

We did the pool main pool at Saratoga. It was fine but I thought the pools we've seen at Moderates were better. That being said, they had a really short, barely inclined water slide that my two year old could go on by herself. She loved it so much I'm pretty sure she would have been happy to skip the rest of the day's activities and just continue going on it over and over.

The Uzima at AK gets my vote, I love that pool, so big and so relaxing, especially of an evening when it really quietens down and all you can hear are the crickets and the animals. Bliss.
