We will pool hop occasionally since we go in the summer and often want to go for a swim to cool off and put a break in the day at the parks. Often, we also rent a boat as well, and since we are usually pretty hot after that, a quick swim helps. We will usually pick a pool close to whatever park we are at. Most of the pools have showers and lockers, or allow you to use the health club for that. We don't find it a hassle at all, and the kids enjoy seeing the different pools. We do this about once or twice over the two week period we are there. We spend most of our swim time at our resort pool (usually OKW or SSR) and the water parks.

This is an old thread, and I see from the poll that I voted never. Well having DGC, that changed, we did enjoy swimming at the Port Orleans Riverside pool one time, and if we had the chance to do it again sometime, we will!

We do not have the time or desire to pool hop. When we are not at the parks, we enjoy all that the resort we are staying at have to offer.

Never. It just seems too much trouble. We just go to the pool in our resort.

I lost where I saw it but..is SSR disallowing pool hopping or is it a rumor? I thought BCV was the only resort that didn't allow at this point.

HMMMMM... if they are thinking of blocking it, it must be good! maybe I should go check out their pool when we go to OUR NEW HOME RESORT, OKW, in may!!!

ps.could someone direct me to how to put an okw logo on my sigature?

No. I enjoy visiting the other resorts for meals and their theming as well but have never used their pools.

We PH every visit and usually to multiple pools in one day. We have started at the Cont., moved on to the Poly, then to GF (which is really lame) and then finish the day at WL. Now this is a whole day of entertainment for our family. Works great to ride the monorail. Eat lunch at the Poly and dinner at WL. We have been to every pool except All Stars. For us, we just don't spend that much time in the parks after 10 years. A 10 day vacation puts us in the parks 3 days, both water parks once and a the rest is around some pool. But that's what make DVC so great, we can do what WE want and others can do what they want.

Although I am really bummed about our trip this year. Spring Break is always the first week of April and of course this happens to be the week after Easter too. We will not be able to pool hop. Luckily my DB and DSIL will be at Boardwalk and I believe they can have us come swim. We will definitely be taking them up on it.
