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?

The other places you cannot pool hop are AKV and BLT and I assume not the Contemporary pool since BLT is connected to that hotel now.

There are pools and water parks at Disney???




We never go swimming and pool hopping just seems to be a lot of trouble. However. I would mind not being able to resort hop.

We never do, because we use the pool as "down time." Traveling to another resort to swim and coming back wet doesn't sound fun. We don't even use the pool at our resort every trip.

You can pool hop to the CR, just not at BLT.

Never. Seems pointless and too much work. All the DVC resorts have great pools.

Wow, this is an old thread. Things have changed for us. My original vote of "Never" would now be "Almost every trip." We do enjoy the invitation to Pool Hop.

we're far too lazy to expend the effort to pool hop...we're of the stay where you want to swim frame of mind

Hmmm....so you can no longer pool hop to SSR?

Is there a list somewhere of pools you can hop to? I went on dvcmember.com but couldn't find that in the benefits guide or when I did a search.

What are the rules behind pool hopping - is it you have to be staying at a DVC resort and a DVC member correct?

I voted never. My daughter and I keep talking about pool hopping just because we can. But we never seem to find the time. Last fall my husband and I stayed at Bay Lake and did visit the Contemporary pool one day. So if that counts, I guess I have pool hopped once!

We have never pool hopped. However, now that we'll be staying at BLT for the second time, we are seriously thinking about doing the monorail pool hop to Poly and GF.

In order to pool hop, you must be staying on a reservation through DVC at a DVC resort. You must be the member or a guest staying with the member at the DVC resort. You cannot pool hop to a resort you are not staying at if you are not staying on a reservation through MS. It's not a member perk; it's a member perk if you are staying at a DVC resort on a reservation through MS. So if you pay cash to DRC, you cannot pool hop. If you rent a reservation from another member, you cannot pool hop because you don't own the reservation. If you are a DVC member staying offsite, you cannot pool hop.

Plus pool hopping cannot be blacked out for the special holiday season.

We have never tried it because like other posts, we usually go to the pool to relax a bit and don't stay too long. This trip we are staying at BLT and think that it would be fun to check out the volcano pool (and get a dole whip) and check out the GF pool as well. We are staying eight nights and only doing each park once, DQX2, and each water park in the evenings so will have time to fit these in.

I can not imagine travelling to another resort to use their pool when I can be in the pool where I am staying in a matter of minutes. For me, it just does'nt make sense for Disney to inconvenience guests staying at a resort and allow people who are not even staying at that resort to come and use that pool.

Our thinking is that we are on vacation and have all the time in the world. But we are the same people who use our DVC to vacation, not to visit the parks everyday. Maybe 3 of the 10 at most.
