Hello, heading to WDW in 1 week. We are DVC members, staying at BLT. Are we allowed to use the Poly pool or can we only hop to DVC resorts? Thanks for the info:)

DVC resorts and then with restrictions. Some do not allow pool hopping at all, so check before you try to use the pool even at DVC.

From the website:

Whenever you are staying on your Membership at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, Disney's Beach Club Villas, Disney's BoardWalk Villas, Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, Disney's Vero Beach Resort, or The Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, you and any Guests staying with you, are permitted to use most of the other Disney Vacation Club and Walt Disney World Resort hotel pools (in addition to the pool at the resort hotel at which you are staying) if they are not at capacity

Be sure to check black out dates and the "no pool hopping allowed pools." You can't hop to SAB or any of the BC/YC/BCV pools if you're not staying at BCV. You can't hop to BLT, Contemporary or the pools at either Kidani or Jambo unless you're at the respective resorts.

Bobbiwoz, thats how I understood it also that all resorts are an option if not blacked out. Has anyone hopped to Poly out there??

I haven't hopped to the Poly, but people here have reported doing so in the past. A few years ago, when our grandchildrem were very young, we hopped to PO Riverside and that was the first slide our DGC went on! It's such a cute pool, we all enjoyed ourselves!:goodvibes

Are we allowed to use the Poly pool or can we only hop to DVC resorts?

the first responder was mistaken.

you are allowed to use the poly pool 1) provided you are not staying during a blackout period and 2) provided that the poly pool is not packed to capacity.

be sure to take your DVC member card, though.

I agree - take your blue DVC member card and your ID (key - it should have DVC on it also)

the block off for your time is March 31 - April 14 - which I think you will miss - so pool hopping is fine.

You can hop to the Contemporary. Just not to BLT.
