Pool hopping

Does Disney allow pool hopping? Friends are staying on property and just asked if they allow pool hopping at other resorts. I know DVC does on a limited basis but not sure about non DVC resorts. THX

I'll answer "no," with an asterisk (*)

No hopping allowed unless it is at a sister resort (such as the All Stars). Where are they staying?

I think they are staying at POP, but not positive.

Pop is their only option.

You're welcome. If they were hoping to swim at AoA, let them know that that pool is gated, and you cannot get in without an AoA RFID key. A lot of people think POP and AoA are sister resorts, but they are not.

Pool hopping doesn't seem "fair" to me

It's not. That is why there are rules against it.

Good way of putting it! I like the "with an asterisk".

I agree....although I'm trying US/IOA for the first time and, evidently, they encourage pool hopping. Being that it'll be August and the parks aren't as big as WDW, I'm looking forward to checking out all the pools!
