You have to be a registered guest at the resort to swim at the resort. This topic is sore to people,(not to me though )

You thought wrong. Sorry.

WDW Pools are for the sole use of registered guests of that resort.

Not entirely true.... We have stayed at Beach Club and spoke with Front desk. In which they provided a visitors pass for my brother, his wife, and my niece. They were staying at pop at the time. This may have been unusual practice, however it doesn't hurt to ask.

This is not usual practice. Perhaps it was during slow season.

I can understand if family wasn't paying to stay onWDW property but if they are why would it be a big deal?

Because each resort is separate from all of the others. You are paying for a say at a particular resort, and you are only allowed to use the amenities of that specific resort. Disney's rules.

If you want to all swim together you either need to stay at the same resort, or spend a day at one of the waterparks.

Because, they're not paying to stay there. The pools have a capacity limit. Beach Club's pool is tight as is with the Yacht, Beach Club and Villas. If they start letting people in from other resorts, it becomes overcrowded.

Its frustrating when you pay BIG money to stay at Deluxe resorts and cant get a chair by the pool or the beach and you know there are "visitors"

What happened at the Poly 4th of July was ridiculous and I would have spoken to management! The resort was over run with visitors, the whole beach was covered with ppl, ppl who were carrying chairs from ppl patios, from the pool. It caused horrendous lines at the Capt Cooks..

While I frequent resorts to eat or shop (like GF) I dont understand why ppl (not you OP you have family at resorts) dont just book the resort they want to swim at?

while I normally have an issue with visitors swimming if you get permission from the resort thats totally different but that is VERY rare.. Especially in summer, spring or christmas seasons..

The only thing Disney has a rule against visitors using are the pools. Visitors are free to hang out on the beaches and eat at the restaurants. Lifeguards should definitely be asking for IDs for those people at the pool, but the beaches are fair game for anyone to use. Disney doesn't say only guests of the resort can use the beach chairs or be on the beach.

If you are paying $150 a night to stay at CBR with their far less engaging pool, why would it be okay to use the pool attached to the room costing several hundred per night? Deluxe prices are higher because of the higher and better amenities... You can't pay less but benefit from the more expensive luxuries.

If you ask and and they give you a pass, feel free. But I wouldn't expect it.

I am just trying to spend some time with my family not trying to win one over on Disney! I have stayed at Ak villas before with my parents personally I like CB pool and am happy with their amenities. Didn't expect people to be so
