While I have never swam at the Dig Site, I can tell you at other Disney resort pools, they did not allow us to have snorkels at the main pool that has lifeguards. We did take balls to throw and dive sticks and even small toy boats in both the main and the non-lifeguard pools. We have never tried to take a noodle or larger inflatable in a Disney pool so I can't comment on that. Thanks to all who are posting reviews, I like to read all the pros and cons. Funny but I've never found housekeeping at Disney to be all that great so it doesn't put me off when a resort gets comments about it (unless it is atrocious). As for Pepper Market, we won't be eating there at all and after the comments, I'm glad. If we were on the dining plan, I'd consider it since it sounds like a good use of a counter service credit but we aren't. I'm glad to hear the good reviews on Cafe Rix as that will be a place we will go a couple times while we are there. Thanks again everyone for your help in planning!
