I have never once received an email, even a general one, from them.

I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed for a GP promotion.

For a long long time, I didn't receive on email from Disney. I changed my email address and then changed my profile on the Disney site and I started getting them again. Not as frequently as I did before but at least I'm getting one every now and then.

Well my Sister in Law got a pin, we are going the same week, but different hotels. However, they let us both use the pin since we are technically going together. We were able to get 25% off POFQ. We're still hoping for something better, but at least it's something. I was also able to get our flights for about $300 less than I spent in September!

Now to start thinking about ADRs!

We were booked at the AoA in a Little Mermaid room but then got nervous because of the size of the room and our length of stay. I was also told by two different castmembers that the Little Mermaid rooms would be exempt from any special offers because they are booking without any discounts.

You can stay where you are comfortable as a family and just take some time to go to the new resort and explore and use the pool, etc?

We are currently booked at Coronado Springs which is a new resort for us as we are Caribbean Beach lovers all the way. I'm hoping to visit a couple of resorts during our upcoming trip but won't be using their pools as it's against Disney policy.

Nothing will light up the DIS boards more than pool hoppping... About the only thing as close is re-using refillable mugs at another resort or even worse, on another trip to WDW.

This past visit it rained so much on a MK day, we hopped on the monorail and toured Poly, Contemporary, and Grand Floridian!!! It was really nice to relax in their bars / Lobbies and take in the atmosphere.

We also always have lunch at Sanaa and enjoy the AKL for a bit.

What a great idea! We've visited the Poly, Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Wilderness Lodge and Saratoga Springs. For our 2013 trip, we will be having dinner at the Poly and breakfast at the Wilderness Lodge. I'm also going to book dinner at the AKL and am looking for one other resort restaurant to dine in.

So where does Disney have a policy about pools?

There are very few exceptions to "pool hopping". DVC members are allowed to visit and use all Disney resort pools with, I believe, the exception of Stormalong Bay. Guests of the Port Orleans resorts are allowed to use the two main pools on the Port Orleans properties. I am also pretty sure that the All Star guests can use any of the pools on the All Star resort properties. Other than that, I believe that's all that are allowed. I'm sure somebody can come along and correct me if I missed another exception to the "pool hopping" rule.

Just found the link to the thread which explains the use of pools:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2450438

I try not to get into the whole "pool hopping" debate because, often times, it results in threads getting closed.
