Does anyone know if you can pool hop to Beach Club if that is your home resort, but you are unable to get a reservation there?

    From the DVC member website:
    How it Works

    Swim, slide, splash, play and lounge—with several unique pool options to suit your style.
    When staying on your Membership at any Disney Vacation Club Resort at Walt Disney World Resort or at Disney's Vero Beach Resort, you and any Guests staying with you are permitted to take advantage of complimentary alternative pool use, which provides access to:
    • The pool or pools at the Disney Vacation Club Resort where you are staying
    • Select pools at Disney Vacation Club Resorts
    • Select pools at Walt Disney World Resort hotels
    Note: Capacity limits and blockout dates apply. To find out about pool-access availability, please check with a host or hostess at the front desk of the Resort you wish to visit.
    You must present your MagicBand or valid Disney Vacation Club Membership Card to use the other Resort hotel pools.

    Know Before You Go

    View details about capacity limits, blockout dates, excluded pools and more.
    Capacity Limitations
    If the pool you are visiting reaches capacity, you may be asked to leave in order to accommodate Guests of that Resort hotel. Please check with a host or hostess at the front desk of the Resort you wish to visit before you go to find out about pool-access availability.
    Blockout Dates
    Resort hotel pools may become unavailable from time to time due to capacity limitations. Due to the high occupancy that is expected, you and your overnight guests may not pool hop during the following dates:
    • December 20, 2019 through January 2, 2020
    • May 22, 2020 through May 25, 2020
    • June 28, 2020 through July 6, 2020
    • September 4, 2020 through September 7, 2020
    • November 23, 2020 through November 28, 2020
    • December 18, 2020 through January 2, 2021
    As a reminder, please be mindful of the limited number of pool chairs available, and refrain from leaving towels or personal items on unoccupied pool chairs.

    So the answer is yes, sometimes?
    The verbiage in the quote @Deb & Bill posted explicitly says "Pool hopping is not available at the following pools at any time—with no exceptions to this policy: Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort – Stormalong Bay" - so the answer is no. They are pretty strict about this, with a CM manning the gate requiring MB scans to enter the pool complex.

    Dohh, ty. I stopped reading at Beach Club Villas and thought that was the only Beach Club exclusion. Makes sense or everybody would go there. Know I would.

    Your fractional DVC ownership only gives you use rights to the property while you are using those points at that property. It's not a general access ownership.
