not responding to anyone in particular.

if the pools are crowded at AOA, and those guests decide to stroll over to pop to use those pools, it is not fair at all to the pop century guests, who do not have the option of "either/or".

now I personally think they should have been"sister resorts" all along. (like the POR resorts, or the All Star resorts.) but they aren't . It costs more to stay at the AOA suites and a bit more at the LM standard rooms, so they have exclusive rights to that pool.

therefore, the same should apply in reverse. and it does.

if I am staying at pop and I overhear that guests at a coveted table with an umbrella are staying at AOA, you better believe I will be letting the lifeguards know.

it is rude to take tables and loungers at a resort at which you are not paying to stay.

I apologize in advance because I'm not a huge WDW buff. But don't the pools have check ins where you can't get past the gate without zapping your Magic Band or something? What is to stop people from getting in the pools?

Also, we will be doing the pirate adventure at GF but staying at a different resort. I see on WDW's site that GF has a kids wet playground and assume that's GF visitors only. Do they have any other playgrounds? Or is it all right to use that wet play area? (As in, does it count as "pool area") Thanks!

Staying in AKL's Jambo using DVC points. Am I allowed to use Kidani's pool? I searched this thread and it's giving me conflicting information. TIA.

Kidani Village and Jambo House are all AKL/AKV. It's one resort. You can use either pool.

I am curious about this too. I have seen this spray ground & it's adorable, can you use it if you are staying in a regular room at the GF?

That's part of the pool at the GF and GFV. So all guests of the resort can use the water play area. Not a guest? Sorry, no.

Walking on Ploynesian Beach

We are staying at All Stars Sports, but we were thinking about going to the Polynesian, so that my DD can walk along the beach there. She would love to see the ocean, but there's just no way we can head to the coast from WDW. Will there be a problem in doing this?

You will have no problem in doing this, although there is currently a lot of DVC construction going on at the Poly. You can take a boat over from MK or the resort monorail. The beach is usually a great place to watch the MK fireworks, although as I say there is an awful lot of construction there at the moment.

there is also a beach at the contemporary. resort, and you canwalk from the MK to the CR.

there is a beach at Fort Wilderness or at WIlderness Lodge. you can take a boat from MK to ieth one.. myae you could make a night of it at Fort wilderness with the chip and dale campfire and then the beach?

at any of the bay lake/seven seas lagoon resorts, you can see the Electrical Water Pagaent from the beach. a cute little lit up boat parade with music.

so if you were at Ft. wilderness you could so the campfire and the electrical water pagaent.

if you were at poly , you could see both

.the electrical water pagaent and wishes, but! construction
you can NOT see the MK fireworks from ft. wilderness of wilderness lodge. you can see the MK fireworks from the 4th floor observatory at CR, but I don't think you can see the water pagaent from there.

I forget what time the pagaent shows up at each lake resort. sorry. someone here will know.

Yes, you CAN see the MK fireworks from FW beach!! It's not our 'cup of tea' as we only like to be in the MK park to get the full effects, but there are 'lots' of people that view the fireworks each night there. We stay there a lot and have seen them ourselves from there, but as at the other places 'outside' the park, they're not the same.
