    Hello, Two questions: I am a DVC member, and I am thinking about taking advantage of the pool hopping privileges. Can I pool hop at all Disney resorts, or just DVC pools? Also, if I take a cab fro BCV to AKV for dinner, are there usually cabs out front?

    Hi, Jennifer!  As a Disney Vacation Club Member, you may pool hop to any of the Walt Disney World resort swimming pools - whether or not they are DVC resorts.  There are, however, several exceptions to this perk.  According to the Disney Vacation Club information:

    Pool hopping is not available at Bay Cove Pool at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Uzima Pool and Samawati Springs Pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, and Stormalong Bay and the leisure pools at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts. In addition, this restriction includes the leisure pools at these two resort hotels. There are no exceptions to this policy.

    Also, keep in mind that there are blackout dates associated with pool hopping.  Check your dates before you go, but in general, the blackout dates are around peak vacation times.  You won't be able to, for example, use the pool hopping perk during the Christmas holidays or for a period of time during the summer.

    Taxi cabs are readily available at the resorts.  You just need to go outside, and one will be brought up from the cab stand area.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
