AoA/POP

Are AoA and Pop sister resorts like french quarter and riverside? can we walk over the bridge from Pop and eat in the cafe, swim in the pools, play in the parks?

They are not sister resorts. You can use everything but the pool.

The Big Blue pool is really cool. The underwater speakers are pretty neat too.

Here is a video I took of the Nemo pool:
http://youtu.be/Sov9jQCmZoA

and the Cars wing and pool:
http://youtu.be/bEHo_97ABwc

The gate around the Nemo pool is opened by a AOA key card. But most of the several gates around the pool were already propped open when I went for a swim. So if you really wanted to you could probably get in to check out the pool and go for a swim. No guarantees though. "Pool hopping" is apparently frowned upon but when I'm paying for a vacation I don't really care.

awesome video of the pool area! was the little playland (nemo slide but not in water) inside or outside of the gated pool? My DD would love that! Geez, i booked AoA first but moved to POP because of discounted rooms. It was almost $200 cheaper for me to get a preferred pool room at POP than a LM room at AoA. That pool looks amazing though! Gosh, now I'm considering changing back. Ugh, decisions!

The only thing they share are the bridge and the pond (lake).

Thanks! I think it was outside but most of the gates were propped open during the day anyways.
