There's been conflicting info given out by CMs and DVC guides on that. I don't think a definite answer has actually been given yet.

Are VWL and WL guests allowed access to both? AKL and Kidani?
If they are, I would assume that's the policy, and it would be the same for CR/BLT, no?

mom2aredhead That makes sense...I dont know the answer to either of those though...maybe someone here will...

It would be nice to have that 3rd pool option at the CR...the main pool they have is nice but certainly not as nice as the one at the GF or Poly...not sure though after the renovation???

The answer to that question is yes, and so you'd think the same would apply to CR/BLT -- that makes perfect sense, but that's not what many DVC guides are telling DVC members. When we inquired about BLT, the guide told us that only BLT guests would be allowed to use the pool there. I've also read here where several people were told the same thing. So I guess we won't know until Disney makes it official, one way or the other.

pixie, is it guides that are saying that or just the people that staff the booths?

Hi all!

Has anyone been in the last week or so to give us a pool renovation update? I know it is open, but last I read a lot of the fences were still up. Just wondering how the landscaping, kid area etc, is coming...

Also, does anyone have a more recent private dining menu? AllEarsNet's is close to 2 years old and I was curious if it changed? (Specifically wondering about breakfast choices and the chocolate monorail...)

Thanks again!!!!!

Hi Blue! I was told by a DVC CM that yes, all CR guest can utilize all of the resort - DVC pool included. With the only exception being the DVC lounge (wishes viewing area), which at that point they didn't know how that was going to be handled since it can't accommodate everyone staying in the BLT.

The new pool complex at BLT looks like a waterpark from the concept photos.

Just wanted to say congrats on the upgrade!

No way!! Is that who runs the Contempo Grounds (or whatever it's called )

I'll have to check that out. I can now do "Monorail Coffee Stops" How fun!

We might bump into you, my DH and DS5 can LIVE in the CR arcade. I can never get them out of there. They collect those stupid game tickets like crazy all week. I leave them there for hours.

Have fun. It's a fun resort for boys!

Our guide told us that, and then I read other posts on the DVC board where other guides had also told their clients that. Not sure about the people at the booths in the parks.

I hope so, too! It just wouldn't make sense to make BLT the exception when guests at BC/BCV, WL/VWL and AK/AKL have access to each other's pools.

Thanks for the answer. The guides are usually reliable. Ours has never led us astray.

The CMs in the booths and at desks in resorts are not as reliable unfortunately.

crazy4wdw posted this link a day or two ago - the most recent pics of the pool renovation i've seen:

http://www.mousesteps.com/index.php?...1&limitstart=2

from those pics, it looks like the renovation is definitely a major project and not simply a "freshening up" of the area. a few pages back, a poster mentioned he saw what appeared to be extensive plumbing going into one of the sections - which lends itself to the theory of a kids splash zone being part of the renovation.

hope this helps.
