Swim and relax at AK lodge for break?

If we are staying at the Poly Club level can we just go to AK...swim, eat take a break then go back to AK instead of going back to the Poly?

No. Pool use is limited to guests staying at that particular resort.

No, you cannot. If you want to use those facilities, how about a split stay? there is no pool hopping allowed.

I guess I am weird, but this concept always confuses me. Why would you want to even if you could? You have to lug your pool stuff to the park in the morning, change in a tiny bathroom stall twice, and then lug your wet swimsuits through the parks the rest of the day. That just seems like a PITA to me.

Yes, they do check. We've been asked to show room keys at WL, BW, YC, and AKL. I once asked the life guard who was checking, how they could tell if you were staying at that resort or not. He pointed to something on my WL room key and said each resort had it's own code. We did see people getting kicked out of the pool at WL and BW, so apparently some people do try to pool hop. At YC I couldn't even get into the pool area at Storm Along Bay without showing my room key.

This.
I am looking forward to pool hopping when I go to Universal (where it's encouraged), but, it looks like I can walk from one to the other....

Take your beach shoes, or "hopping" between pools on that pavement will have a totally different meaning.

It is quite a hike from RPR to PBH, I am not sure I would walk that far to use another pool. We like the pool at PBH the best - maybe take the boat over to check it out.

Also with AK's shorter hours, it takes a big hunk of time out of the day.

That's weird because I thought it was only BC and BLT where DVC's members couldn't pool hop? Other than that, DVC members can pool hop at any WDW resort. In fact this past January,we were staying offsite and we went to Boma for dinner and afterwards we went to the front desk, showed our DVC cards and asked if we could swim. They said no problem and we went swimming.
