    I'm travelling with 2 children under 3. Which resorts have the best splash pads and toddler pools? Does every resort have an area suitable for my kids? Are you allowed to stay at one resort but venture out and try the pool at another?


    So I find that pretty much every resort at Disney has created a pool experience that is going to be good for kids of most any age. However, if I had to pick, here are my "all stars" for the toddler splash areas;

    Value Resorts: These are all essentially identical in this area and have kiddie pools that exactly what you are asking about.

    Moderates: A fairly new pirate ship-themed kid area at the feature pool at Caribbean Beach Resort is particularly ideal for what you are looking for.

    Deluxe: Most of the pools in this class have kiddie pool areas, as well as horizon entries that should serve your purpose.  But if I had to pick the best of the bunch, Stormalong Bay (which is shared by the Yacht and Beach Club resorts) has a lot of horizon entry areas that would be good for toddlers, with supervision of course.

    To answer your final question, no, pool hopping is no longer allowed. Some pools were getting too crowded and it was not fair to guests of those particular resorts. But you should find that at ANY Disney resort you have pretty great pools to visit right there in your own resort!

    Have a magical vacation!
