    What resort has the best pools (kids 7-5-3) and close to monorail that can handle our family of 5? Thanks for your help

    All three monorail resorts can accommodate a party of 5:  The Contemporary, The Grand Floridian, and The Polynesian.  The Contemporary has a large pool with a twisty, elevated pool, but I think of it as just a pool - no special theming.  The Grand Floridian has two pools and a spa.  The newer pool has a waterfall, slide, and zero-entry access next to the Seven Seas Lagoon.  The Polynesian also has two pools, but no spa.  The newer pool is themed around a volcano with a waterfall, a slide inside the volcano, music played under the water, zero-entry access next to the Seven Seas Lagoon.  I think this has the richest theming since the water winds its way throughout the grounds from the Great Ceremonial House to the pool.  However, it can become crowded since it is a bit small.  I must say there is something spectacular about swimming in the pool watching the fireworks in the Magic Kingdom!  I included a link to each of the resorts where you can take a virtual tour of each resort and its pool to see which one best fits your family's likes and needs.
