    Yes, for us it's only 3 more weeks and I can hardly wait.
    I love to relax on the little wooded hill in the front there. Yes, I agree-lots of cars turn around at the gate and I often wondered why. Are they lost? If so, there are lots of lost people on the island.
    And the dolphins swimming around the little inlet there, out by the pier, or playing among the boats in the marina is always a thrill. I can well understand why they might buy on the spot.

    On our way home from a trip this summer we took a detour and stopped at HH. Ddddddddrove up to the gate and told them we were members and would just like to look around. No problem - they just let us in. We went up to the front desk and they gave us a map and explained that even if we couldn't use the shuttle we could walk to the Beach House . We didn't because I have issues with my feet and that day they were really bad but we did walk to the pool and snack bar area and had a nice look around. Didn't ask to see any rooms but everyone was very pleasant and helpful.

    There have been reports of people being turned away at the gate. One can always park at the marina and walk across to explore the resort though one cannot pool hop.

    I called the resort when I was considering buying and they said I could come look around. I ended up buying sight-unseen, but they were friendly on the phone and I was not even a DVC member at the time.

    Non-DVC members (and DVC members who are not staying on-site using points or cash through MS) are not entitled to pool hop unless arrangements have been made due to another resort's pool being out of service. For example, if SAB is undergoing maintenance, guests (DVC & non-DVC) are often allowed to pool hop to the Boardwalk pools.

    It's up to the resort to enforce rules re use of the pools. Enforcement at the BWV is spotty based on my experience, especially if the pool is not overly crowded.

    There will always be low life people who crash pools, violate the PH rules, etc. I think BCV and VB do a much better job than the rest in this area than the rest though I doubt HH has much of a problem other than the occasional owner who wants to visit to see the resort anyway.

    Disney officially does not allow non-DVC guests to use other resort pools. If the pool becomes crowded at all, they will do a room key check and be asked to leave.
