Which Resort has the Best Pool? - Not including Stormalong Bay

We're looking for a resort to stay at with a great pool next year, so I'm wondering which WDW resorts really shine when it comes to their pools. Obviously Yacht & Beach Club's Stormalong Bay is amazing, but assuming that is not an option, which pools give you the most bang for your buck?

The Boardwalk's Luna Park has the"Keister Coaster". This slide looks like an old fashioned wood roller coaster. I'm not wild about clowns but it fits with the "Carnival" theme there.

Coronado Springs has a great main pool area. They recently started a campfire, nightly movies and a bunch of other activities throughout the day.

I have only been to mods and Pop Century, but I believe that Riverside has the best. CBR has lots of slides, but not much else. POR is much more... Visually interesting, I guess.

We like Caribbean Beach. Slides, a great kids' play area, and fabulous hot tubs Smile

I have seen every pool at Disney World. To me the resort pool that looks the best is Beach and Yacht Club pool. However! Every thing is relative. Would you prefer a quiet pool for adult relaxation or a loud, busy pool for kids. Jan and I always liked the old Meddows pool at Ft. Wilderness but a couple of years they turned it into a big 'kiddie ' pool. Kind of ruined it for us.

I love AKL Jambo's to be honest. There are a couple hot tubs that are pretty private... especially at night. And I believe its open 24 hours so you can swim whenever as well. There arent any fancy slide (there is one), but its a huge pool, and with the tubs... I love them.

I loved AKL's pool. I love the zero entry or whatever it's called. I don't remember a slide but I am sure that there was one somewhere...

Did you go to Kidani or Jambo? Jambo's is hidden in a way over in a corner.

The Volcano pool at the Poly is pretty neat. Has a nice water slide, but no hot tubs.

I still don't get that! Wish they'd put one in. I'm not sure why I feel that way, since I never stay there. I guess I just want you and Scrappy to have a hottub!
