View Full Version : Pool Hopping as a DVC member

03-22-2010, 11:04 PM
Hello everyone. I have a question about how pool hopping works as a DVC member. We are heading down for a 16 day trip. The first 3 days will be at OKW and we are planning to use this time to acclimate to the heat, time change, and relax. We are not hitting any parks until day 4 when we move to BLT. My hubby has booked some golf and I was thinking about taking our 4yo son pool hopping as swimming is just as important to him as the parks. :lmao:

I was thinking about CBR for the pirate play area as he loves pirates. Where else do you think he would enjoy? He loves toddler slides but not the larger slides. I know we can not go to Stormalong Bay. Are there other pools that we can not hop to?

Sorry to bring up a heated topic just want to plan a few relaxing and water filled days with my son. :goodvibes

No pools at all at YC/BC/BCV as well as the others already mentioned.

Plus their are black out times around the holidays.

POFQ has a fun pool for little kids - the Sea Serpent slide is fun.

CSR has a neat pool. The Dig Site is cool.

Thanks guys.

We stayed at SSR last year so I think a trip back to visit that pool is a must. We were also debating POR and FQ since they are accessible by boat? Is that correct?

It is now a longer boat ride as you have to go to DTD and change boats ... then come all the way back past OKW to get to PORS or FQ.

The slides our kids have loved are PO both resorts,SSR, CBS, CSR and the Poly. BW isn't too bad if you don't mind the clown slide (mine didn't care) and WL has a nice slide too.
