With all the talk of pool hopping, I was wondering if anyone has actually seen what happens when a person/family is caught in the act? I don't agree with pool hopping, and would never do it. Just curious about what happens to those who do? Also, who is charged with policing this?

The people in charge would have to be lifeguards because they are the ones who will check the guests KTTW cards either when they arrvie to get towels, or while they are sitting down at the pool chairs. That is what has happened when I stayed at the Contemporary. Last month when I stayed at the Polynesian we got the towels ourselves and no one came up to my family and I asking to see our KTTW cards. Of course that could have happened when we were not at the pool.

I saw security guards walking through the pool area, checking resort IDs at the WL pool a couple of years ago. They even came down to the beach, where I was sitting, to check IDs. I did see them ask a family that could not produce IDs to leave the pool, and the guard stood nearby while the family packed up their things and left.

Slightly off topic, but I don't get the whole idea of pool-hopping. I enjoy a nice pool as much as the next person but to waste my precious vacation time pool-hopping makes no sense to me. :confused3 I don't think I've ever seen anyone check IDs at the PO resorts but I don't use the pool that much.

I've seen people asked to leave SAB, the Polynesian pool, and the BW pool. As another poster stated, either security or a lifeguard will ask for ID's, and then ask the party to leave if they don't have them. They will linger near them to make sure they do leave.

One cold January morning, DH and I wandered down to the theme pool at the GF and were asked for ID--we were in street clothes with no bag that we might have bathing suits in. We were staying at the hotel, so no biggie, but they were obviously enforcing the rules, and there wasn't even anyone in the pool!

We've been asked to show ID's everytime at SAB and once at the Contemporary when we were pool hopping from OKW ( rules for DVC members permit that at certain resorts during non-peak times). They checked other people at the Contemporary too but I know they were "looking" at my family of 8 since the girl at the towel counter kept staring at us, even after my husband had shown her all our KTTW cards with "DVC Member" and explained the rules. I guess she still thought she should report us. The manager who came around didn't say a word as of course we were allowed and I just smiled at the girl at the counter to indicate I knew who decided we needed intense scrutiny. I've known a family that was kicked out of SAB before they were doing so much enforcing at that resort. They were kindly asked to pack up and leave and they did so. They were s/a Ft. Wilderness campground and I guess didn't like the pool there. I guess I'm a "rules person" and am glad this one is enforced. It's not fair to the people paying to stay in a particular resort, which presumably could be for the purpose of enjoying that specific pool and to have it too crowded with either guests not s/a that resort or local folks. Knowing how Disney does things I'd think they'd always allow a guest to pack up their dignity along with their belongings and would think the "best" about the guest. Perhaps they didn't know pool hopping wasn't allowed, for instance or perphaps they needed a gentle reminder. I don't know what would happen if someone refused to leave. I also don't know what what they do with disruptive guests as I've never really witnessed an argument or confrontation over behavior.---Kathy

We were at TL a few months ago, and I overheard a man telling the people he was with that he had friends who lived in the area who specifically went to the Disney resorts to swim in the pools-they didn't even visit the parks:sad2:

I've stayed no higher than mod level on several visits. Never had anyone so much as look sideways at me(of course I was at my own resort, so...). I just wonder what kind of flags would go off ? If you walk into the area, place your stuff on a chair and get into the pool without looking like Inspector Clouseau skulking onto the scene... I wonder what sets party A apart from Party B ?

Because some of the pools on Disney property are in high demand, i.e. StormAlong Bay, guests of both Yacht and Beach Club are issued colored wristbands when they enter the pool area. They have to show their room key to get it. when lifeguards notice that someone is in the pool without the wristband, they are asked to leave.

Allison
01-16-2008, 07:53 AM
The lifeguard simply explained only guests of the resort could swim there and told them they wouldn't be able to stay.

Last August at SAB over at the Beach club. The cm simply politely told a couple that they would have to get wrist bands. When they said they weren't guest at the YC/BC, the cm just said the pool unfortunately was reserved for hotel guest. He did recommend the quiet pool to them. I think in the summer they probably enforce more due to the crowds.

I have never seen it enforced but I have to agree with the other poster why would you pool hop if you have your own pool. Kind of wierd to me.

01-16-2008, 08:20 AM
I think its great the they are enforcing the rules!!! Question though, can you still go look around at the pools at resorts you are not staying at? On our off days, we sometimes resort hop to look around at all there is to see, but never in a million years would I think to use another resorts pool. Gosh, I'd be way too embarrassed about getting caught. My Disney time is too precious to me to risk being kicked off property(not sure if they do that or not, but still)totally not worth it IMO:sad2:

We stayed at GF last September. We spent quite a bit of time in the pools, both the courtyard one and beach one. We were never asked for room keys and saw no enforcement whatsoever.

Well here's a senario....We are staying at CSR for 4 nights. Then we're checking out and checking in at ASMo. The day we check out of CRS is our planned "pool day". Anyone think we'll have a problem swimming at CRS pool that day?

just kept your keys (ID) - they are good until midnight on your check out day. So you shouldn't have any problems.

We just back from the BC and I was chatting with the lifegaurd wile the kids swam. He said SAB is the most strict as far as pool hopping goes. But he said the rules are only enforced until about 5:00pm, that because thats when you get most of the traffic from people walking over from epcot,mgm....etc.

I think this is true, because I have to admit that I pool-hopped once in my life (a long time ago). I was staying at Dolphin and was really curious about SAB, so I figured I would try it. It was a misty June day after 5 (I know the time because I was on a school trip and it was after sessions were over). No one looked at me at all, but the pool was very slow because of the weather...

I have to say though I was so stressed about getting caught that I did not even really enjoy it...

Anyway, of course now that I am grown and realize how selfish poolhopping is, I would never do it again and I have learned my lesson.

OOooh, my sister and I got busted once! This was about 11/12 years ago when I was probably 16. We honestly didn't know there was a rule against it. We LOVED the WL, stayed there the first couple of years it was open and just HAD to go back. They asked us to show our key card and we were told we had to leave.

That was the second thing we got in trouble for that day. The first was walking from the TTC to the WL! Didn't know that was against the rules either. No sidewalks, no walking. Imagine the security guard as we strolled up the drive to the WL. Hey, now that I think about it, he was probably the one who called someone to check that we weren't pool hopping!!!

I saw a woman being asked to leave the Grand Floridian pool while I was there. She thought that she should have been allowed to swim there since she was paying big bucks to stay on the monorail line she should be allowed to swim in all of the pools at the monorail resorts.

Curiousity question here - how do they know which resort you are from? I am looking at my key to the world card from POR and nowhere on it does it say the resort. Of course, nobody asked for an ID because pool hopping is not a big problem at the mods. Does it say it on the deluxe ones or am I missing something here?:confused3

Before you got the towels you had to tell them how many you wanted and they would put the number you asked for along with a check mark beside your name. So I thought that was good and intresting idea.

I guess we are going to have to rearrange our plans for our upcoming trip. We were going to use one of our afternoons to rent watercraft at Poly for a few hours, use a CS credit there and then let our boys use the waterslide for a bit while we tried our first dole whips, but I guess that would not be allowed. Never really thought of it as pool hopping, just part of the disney magic :lovestruc

I think this is a common misconception for people who aren't that familiar with WDW. Pool hopping actually used to be allowed if you were staying anywhere onsite when I was a little kid. The restriction got put into place as more resorts popped up.

This person stated that they were going to change their plans, so I'm not sure I see the need for the sarcasm. JMHO and if I'm misinterpreting your comment & you meant no sarcasm, I apologize. :goodvibes

When I was at the Boardwalk in May '06 I saw a family kicked out of the pool. They looked so embarrassed, I felt sorry for them. I overheard them saying they had just wanted to take a break from the park and wanted to let their sons try the clown slide.

Jan '05 we saw two different groups kicked out of the pool at WL. My son had taken my GD out to the pool, while I was in the laundry room, doing laundry. The lifegards asked everyone for room keys and neither my son nor my GD had theirs, so my son came to the laundry room to get mine. I walked back out with him and showed the lifeguard my room key, but he still insisted on seeing my son's and GD's, saying that just because I was staying there didn't mean they were. I had to run back upstairs to get their room keys. When I got back, my son and GD told me I had missed all the fireworks. Apparently one of the poolhopping dad's got really irate and started yelling at the lifeguards, a manager was called, and he became even more irate when the manager supported his lifeguards. He started yelling that as much as he was paying for this WDW vacation his family should be allowed to swim wherever he d_ _mn well pleased. They were escorted out by security still yelling.

Ok, on another note.... does that mean that since we are not staying at Poly that we cant rent the water craft??? Just curious because we were looking forward to that and possibly the fishing there. Something to do thats a little more laid back since we are staying at WDW for 9 days :yay:

That is fully allowed. We always hop over to the Poly and rent watercrafts, grab lunch and sometimes drinks while we get a hair wrap etc and have a realx day---We have this planned for our upcoming trip----just we don't use thier pool.

I've seen then ask families to leave at the Poly a few times. One family was staying at the Wilderness Lodge. I don't know where the others were staying though. They were all quite embarrassed though.

No one checked our room cards or even asked at the POR/POFQ pools when we were there the first week of April.

We're heading to CBR the last week of Sept., a week after the main pool reopens. I kind of hope they check IDs. I was concerned it would be really crowded since it will be new. However, it is a slow time of year and not really on the way to anything.

SAB & SoG are the only two places I've seen them do that. Having said that we've never even tried the pools at Poly & CR even though we've stayed there. If I opt for a pool day I prefer to go to the water parks. SAB is like a water park though!

ElizabethB

Well said BamaFan! Enough already with the self-appointed pool police. Relax folks. It's a vacation! We've stayed at nearly every hotel on property, except the values. We don't pool hop. We've never seen people asked to leave the pool. We've never seen hotel keys checked by anyone. We haven't yet stayed at Beach Club, but have that planned for a couple of months from now. I do expect to see some enforcement there, based on what I've read on various threads.

As far as AKL, GF, CSR, BWI, BWV, Swolphin, CR, we've never seen anyone checking room keys. It just doesn't seem like that big of a problem. I once saw a family take the boat over to GF from MK. They all had on their suits and were carrying their swim gear, so they were no doubt planning a swim at GF. So what. When we stayed at GF, the Beach pool was a bit crowded at times, but that didn't reduce our enjoyment. There was hardly ever a soul in the courtyard pool. And this was during free dining.

Sorry, I just can't get that worked up about it.

I guess it all depends on your experience. I've been at the Polynesian a couple times during the summer and even once in the fall when you could barely fit in the pool, nevermind find a chair. I'd wager they weren't all Polynesian guests either b/c the resort (food court, buses, etc.) didn't seem overly crowded. Just my opinion, of course, but I would appreciate them enforcing it so I can relax and enjoy the amenities of the resort I chose to stay at.

they only do it at BW when asked by a guest or the pool is overly crowded - lifeguard decision then I think.

Polyn and SALB (BC/yC/BCV) get done often - besides now you have to be staying there to even get in the pool - the wrist thing.

the moderates on the whole don't.

the only one I would think that might would be the CSR - but again until someone complaints they won't.

DVC members have pool hopping priviledge but only if they follow the rules. SALB and AKL pools are out.

I would be so embarassed if I did something like that and got caught. Especially if my DD was there. I am not one to go to the pools while I am at Disney, so it wouldnt even matter to me, but I can how that should be enforced. They wouldnt want everyone from all the resorts at one pool.

spiceycat
04-23-2008, 11:07 AM
you would be surprised at how many guests from Epcot came over to SALB to pool hop.

once BC/YC (no BCV then) started to try to stop it - not given pool towels without room ID - these nuts just came to the quiet pool and took the towels.

we were at the quiet pool at the time - there were at least 3 groups of them doing this then. considering we were only at the pool an hour - you can image the problem.

so I definitely understand the fence and gates at SALB. It was necessary.

of course these guys probably now go to BW....or D&S.

they were staying off property.

I have to admit I was tempted to hop to CSR. Don't start lecturing me please :goodvibes , I'm not going to - I just love that pool and would love to take my kids over to see it. (We can't stay there because we have 3 kids).

I never understand comments like these. I don't understand why people should be expected to pay for what they want if that is required. Why are some people entitled to just walk all over the guests who pay to stay there or the guests who use the mug as the program requirements exist or the guests who actually stay at WDW resorts so they can use the EMH park time. Why are people so up in arms about the guests who follow the rules and not the ones who think they are entitled to anything they want?

If you are a guest of the BC/YC/BCV, you are entitled to swim at SAB. If you are not, you are not supposed to swim there. And if I am a guest there and I can't get a seat by the pool because non-guests decided they are entitled to my chair, that's wrong. Same for Polynesian pool, BWV pool, any resort pool. I have been a guest at BCV and found SAB to be completely filled with people, so that it was difficult to get a chair, even one for me and my family.

Swim at your own pool. Buy a new mug each time you visit. Leave the park if you are not a resort guest and EMH is happening. Leave the park if you are required to buy a hard ticket to a special event and you don't have one.

We always carry only one card to the pool. It's too easy to lose them. Will we have a problem with that? I leave the kids in the pool sometimes to go look in the shops or just roam the grounds.

No, clearly you didn't understand the comment at all. I wasn't condoning the actions, I was laughing and poking fun at those who spend their time obsessing over them. Leave the police work to Disney and enjoy your vacation.

My oldest niece and I were given the stink-eye from a lifguard at SAB. We were transfering from the Poly to the Beach Club, and she and I were just walking around the pool deck, fully clothed. The lifeguards kept looking at us, but we didn't even have a bag with us.:confused3 I wondered if they expected us to jump in fully clothed.:rolleyes:

I am glad they enforce this rule. The cool pool areas are a big part of why we vacation at the deluxe resorts when we can. Why should someone else get the privilige of using those pools for free?

Atchley
04-23-2008, 03:58 PM
Okay, I have never pool hopped and never intend to, but I have a question. The lifeguard requests to see my KTTW card, which I am more than happy to show him, but how does he know that it is for that resort? It has been a couple of years since I have been and I don't remember much about the cards. Do they actually state the name of the resort that you are staying at on them? I just don't remember that much about the cards.:confused3

I have a question... as someone who would never want to be asked to leave and deal with any embarrassing moments that I can somehow prevent... hahaha

We are going to AKL in September for a week. My nephews are coming down for one day/night from college for my oldest son's birthday. We are doing MNSSHP together as well as dinner. They are staying at one of the values, Music I think, and I am sure at one point the 4 boys are going to want to swim. Any ideas on this situation?

If I were you, I would ask at the resort. Officially, no they are not supposed to swim too, but often if the pool crowd levels are low they will grant you permission. (And it's THEIR word that counts.;) ) Now if you are asking the "Unofficial Pool Hopper Stoppers" here, you should prepare yourself for a good flaming. :rotfl:

I think this thread has run its course. It isn't a debate. Disney has rules that state who is allowed to use the pools. If a lifeguard or a CM says it is ok to swim there then fine.
