chaoslobster: you may use the pools and any other ammenities of the resort you are staying at the full day of check in and until midnight the day of check out. so, if you want to arrive at the Poly at 6 am on check in day you can use the pool, and continue to use it until midnight the day of check out. but, for $600, you could stay in the little mermaid rooms at the Art or animation for longer than one night. they do have handicapped rooms, some on the 1st floor, and the Nemo pool is zero entry. with a room only discount, you could stay a lot more nights at the Carribbean beach (heck, even without a discount). they have a zero entry pool. it is a Moderate resort. and quite lovely.
