Pool Hop to???

We're gonna pool hop one day next month. I'm taking my Mom and girls. I was thinking either the Poly (Mom has never been to this pool, but the girls went to swim there last month and it was a hit), BW (girls have been there, Mom never has) or Coronado Springs (we stayed here years ago, youngest wasn't even born yet, Mom has seen the pool, but I think my oldest would enjoy it now). Or any other pools???

Anyway, why not do a poll I thought!

We only have one day to pool hop cause there is a pool hopping restriction the day after we arrive for the rest of our stay. Girls are 7 and 4.

Thanks!

I will always have a soft spot for The Poly, so that's what I voted for.

Have fun!

MG

PS- I seem to recall that you were also visiting VB. Is that still happening?

Hey MG!

We're leaving for VB this coming Sunday with the in-laws.
In June I'm taking my Mom and girls to SSR. We're doing a non park trip! We plan on going to BB and TL and doing stuff at the resorts. I'm trying to come up with some fun stuff for us to do. My Mom doesn't want to go to the parks. She says she is burned out!

On the resort board I asked about changing rooms at Coronado and was told I would need a room key??? When we pool hopped to the Poly we had no problems. We called prior to going and everyone was nice there.

The Caribbean Beach Resort also has a very cool pool. You might want to try that one.

I'd hop to the GF. The pool is similar to the one at the Poly only it usually seems a little less crowded IMO. Plus they have a very nice changing area with showers at the GF's pool.

CSR from what I hear has a great pool too but not so sure about changing areas

Have fun!

Thanks everyone.

On the resort board someone else mentioned that even POR FQ has room key activated bathrooms.

I wonder why it is hard to use a moderate bathroom, but the deluxe bathrooms are open???

We have hopped to CSR several times and the changing area is fine, showers and all. Didn't need a key just went in and really enjoyed the margaritas.

I wonder if I'm getting that info cause they look down on DVCers pool hopping???

I've yet to recall a bathroom near a WDW pool that was locked and needed a key. Now I've seen signs that after hours you need your key, but I don't think I've ever come across one during the day that wasn't open. Anyone?

Shan...we stayed at FQ last june over a wknd and the bathroom by the Dabloon lagoon pool was open but as you mentioned, had the key entry for after hrs. I don't think they'd lock the bathrooms at any resort pools during regular hrs. I've yet to see any locked during daytime hrs anyway

I voted for the Poly. I just love that resort. Have a Mai Tai for me if you go there.

Oh, and I read (in the Allearsnet newsletter I think?) there is a new store at the Poly with wood carvings from Bali. It looked like a clothes shop, but the few pics of the wood carvings were really cool. One of my hobbies is woodworking, and recently I've been carving tiki's. (Another new hobby is the Ouija Board, but that's another story for another post). If you get chance to snap a few pictures of the carvings, I'd love to see them! I'm sure I'll get there next year to check it out in person.

Why don't you ask the Ouija board which pool? Or is your planchette malfunctioning again? (how embarassing).

Yes, and my wife is not happy about it at all! I brought it to Madame Leota's Planchette Repair shop. I knew something was amiss when it said the Eagles would win the Superbowl.
