Do you pool hop?

With all the discussion going on surrounding pool hopping recently, I thought it was time for a poll on the topic. Personally, DH and I have never hopped and I can't imagine a circumstance where we would. Seems like a huge pain to me to travel to another resort to swim, then have to get back all wet, or find a place to change clothes. Just wondering if we're in the minority.

Please restrict your answers here ONLY to your personal experience. The idea is to get a feel for how many people actually do use this perk, perhaps to give some relevance to the other discussions, not to justify whether or not the perk should continue.

We never have, but I'd still like to keep the priveledge at all the pools except SAB where crowding is prohibative.

We currently stick with the pool at the resort where we are staying, but that's been BCV and BWV and the pools are pretty nice. I might feel differently if the pool at my home resort wasn't as desirable.

I agree with WDWguru. We enjoy other resorts during our visits but that is generally for a meal or just to enjoy the theming.

We used to pool hop from BWV to SAB when it was allowed. Going from BWV to SAB was very easy via the Friendship boats. The only other resort I have pool hopped from is OKW.

Now OKW seems to be a place many want to pool hop TO with the castle slide. I don't pool hop to or from anywhere. I prefer the quiet pools anyway.

We have started pool hopping now that the boys are a bit older. We really love the pool and gated play area at CBR. So for us, that's our pool hop of choice.

Not regularly.

Pool hopped to the Poly once when our DVC friends were staying there while we were staying BCV. All the kids had a great time. We would do that again.

Pool hopped to CBR once, while staying at BCV. BIG MISTAKE! NEVER AGAIN!

We have as well-but in the summer when at MK-its a nice break and we wear swimwear anyway in that heat. Otherwise we have done less and less, esp since we are at BCV/SAB the majority of our nights.

We used to pool-hop to SAB when it was allowed. Now we would likely go to zero entry pools, since we have a toddler.

We actually just added on at BCV so we'd have access to SAB in the future.

Overall, though, I'd hate to see this perk end.

In ten years we've "pool hopped" just once, but I put that in quotations on purpose.

That one time, we were staying at BWV , but the pool was closed for refurbishment. DVC had a special launch going beetween BCV and BC (This is before BCV) just for using the SAB pool. It was a pontoon boat similar to the ones they have at OKW for going to DD, and was being used strictly to ferry guests from BWV to the BC Pool.

That made it very easy. But I'm not sure if technically it was pool hopping or not since for that trip, SAB was the designated pool for BWV guests.

No; don't have the time nor inclination to pool hop.

Voted Never,

But that doesn't mean Never Will. We are already starting to spend less time in the parks and more time at the resorts. I can picture on our OKW trips spending time over at the VWL pool, not because the pool itself is the draw, the resort in general is just a great place to kick back. Personally, I don't think PH will be around in a few years, but I hope I'm wrong.
