How many really pool hop?
With all the talk about SSR not allowing pool hopping, I was wondering how many people really do pool hop? I know the DW & DD & I never have time to go to the other resorts to swin, even when we are at WDW for 7 days. :earsboy: Is it possible that pool hopping is not a big deal for alot of DVC members. pirate:

We've never pool hopped and I can't imagine that we ever will. Unless we are traveling with my youngest brother's family (which includes two small boys), we don't even use the resort's pools.

I posted a poll on this issue back in June. Click here for the results, or to vote.

Thanks WDWguru for the poll that you had posted in June, I just find it funny that some people make such a big deal on pool hopping and from the looks of your poll not many people do go hopping! pirate:

We enjoy the pools at the resort we are staying. When we visit other resorts during a trip, it is to enjoy the theming, meals or boating.

If I was going to travel elsewhere to swim I would use a water park.

Before the BCV's were built and we were staying at the BWV, we would walk over to SAB and pool hop to there. Now that we no longer can do that, we no longer pool hop. We bought at the BCV so we could continue using SAB from time to time.

Our first trip home was very recently while the BW pool slide was closed and they allowed us to hop over to SAB. We gave it a try to check out the pool and see if we'd want to stay over there (as the reason to try and get into BCV in my mind is the pool). Cool pool. But we only hopped once and I don't think we'd do so again.

I pool hopped once but it was so much trouble to drag the suits all over, and change out of the wet suits in the bathroom that I never did it again. It is so much easier to just go up to your room and shower before changing into clean clothing. But we wanted to check out the new Poly pool. I didn't like to, too crowded and small.
I plan my trips according to who will be with me. I don't swim, just get into the pool to cool off and relax so the pools are no biggie to me but I prefer my home resort quiet pool at WLV.
When I brought my family we stayed at BCV so they could experience SAB.
My boys love the pools at OKW. they are very quiet, usually they are the only ones there.
And as I stated before, if I am going with my friend we stay at WLV because I prefer the pool there. Peggie

We like to swim at the Polynesian. We always rent boats there and eat lunch, and in the middle of all that, we swim for perhaps one hour. I doubt that we are causing the pool to burst with over-capacity. We really enjoy this privelege, though, and would be sad if it was taken away. If they made DVC at the Poly, I'd be right there!

We have only pool hopped once from BWV to SAB just before BCV's opened. Really do not plan on it again. We've better things to do in the Orlando/WDW area than to pool hop at WDW resorts.

We pool hop once in a while. We combine the "hopping" with other activities, like Animal Kingdom in the morning followed by a "hop" to Coronado Springs for an hour or two on the way back to our home resort. We never leave our home resort just to pool hop.

If we want to "pool hop"...........we go to "Blizzard Beach".::yes::

timC 10-31-2003 08:46 PM

Once... We pool hopped to SAB. It was the month before they removed it from the list. Our one and only great pool hop adventure in 4 years.

I do regularly plan a pool hop day, but always end up at a putt-putt golf, or rent a boat, or DtD.

Honestly, if we want a big pool hop adventure we usually just go to TL.

We have pool hopped a couple of times. With our de-emphasis on commando touring in the parks, we find that doing things like pool hopping is a nice way to visit other resorts that we've never stayed at.

It wouldn't crush us if they ended it, but it's a nice, no cost perk for DVC members to get.
