Membership has its privileges, but there are certain blackout dates for members when resort occupancy is high. There are also pools even DVC members cannot ever pool hop in while they are staying at another resort.
- Uzima Pool and Samawati Springs Pools at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
- Bay Cove Pool at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- the leisure pool at Disney’s Beach Club Villas
- Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts
- the pool at the Disneyland Resort in California
Vacationers pay a ton of money to go to Disney World. The nicer resort you stay in, the more money you will pay. It’s morally unethical to swim in a resort pool you did not pay to swim in. It’s also embarrassing if you get caught there illegally, so don’t take the risk. Let the people who paid for those pool privileges enjoy them.
For the people who paid for DVC privileges, you will really enjoy the pool hopping option. The summer after we joined the DVC, we used our new points to stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. I’ll be honest, I was so broke from paying that membership down-payment, we decided not to charge park tickets on our Disney Visa. We used a set of one day tickets from a prior trip, and we spent the next five days pool hopping. I called it the GREAT 2008 DISNEY POOL TOUR. It was absolutely, positively fabulous. It was so great, it took the sting out of my DVC bill each month.
Without a DVC membership, you can tour the resorts and decide which pools you like, and then save your money for accommodations there. That way, no one has to call the Cheapskate Princess for bail money.
