    Hello, we have family staying at another resort and wanted them to join us for a pool day, what is the currently policy for yacht club pools? Can we pay a day fee?

    Welcome to planDisney, Stephanie!

    How exciting that you'll be staying at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. This hotel is located a short stroll from EPCOT and offers a New England charm with a healthy sprinkle of nautical touches. Whether you're sipping your morning coffee as you gaze at Crescent Lake or enjoying an evening cocktail at the Ale & Compass Lounge, you'll get a taste of Disney heaven. This hotel also has convenient access to Disney Skyliner and Disney's BoardWalk. There are so many wonderful food options available too (I recommend Yachtsman Steakhouse). The main pool area, Stormalong Bay, is probably the best pool on property. 

    But "let's get down to business." Unfortunately, Stephanie, the pools at each Disney hotel are reserved exclusively for the Guests staying at that particular hotel. Therefore, unless the person you have in mind is staying at Disney's Yacht Club Resort or Disney's Beach Club Resort (these hotels share pools), I'm afraid they won't be able to use the hotel pool. You also can't purchase day passes to use the pools either. I know that's not the answer you wanted to hear, Stephanie. However, this policy actually prevents these pools from getting overcrowded and makes for a better experience for hotel Guests. It's one of the reasons you'll be able to really enjoy the pools at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. However, your family is allowed to visit your hotel, eat at the restaurants, shop at the store, etc. 

    I hope that's clarifying, Stephanie. Have a wonderful trip!
