    Hil! Our 1st trip as DVC members to DW is May 25-30. Still learning all I can about the benefits of our membership. Are members allowed to Pool hop? If yes which Pools & how does it work? Home resort is Saratoga Springs & we are so excited! Thank

    Hi Melinda,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so excited for you to be taking your first trip at Disney Vacation Club Members!  The words "Welcome Home" take on a whole new meaning when you arrive at Walt Disney World as Disney Vacation Club members.

    Yes, as a Disney Vacation Club member, one of the great benefits is that you and any guests staying with you can pool hop and try out the pools at various Walt Disney World resorts.  It is a really fun way to check out the other resorts!  I would be sure to have your Magic Bands with you to indicate that you are a current Walt Disney World Resort guest, as well as your Disney Vacation Club member card.  You can never pool hop to the following pools: Bay Cove Pool at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Uzima Pool and Samawati Springs Pool at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Stormalong Bay at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, the leisure pool at Disney's Beach Club Villas, and the pools at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.

    If a pool reaches capacity, you may be unable to pool hop so that the pool is available for guests of that resort.  There are also blackout dates when you cannot pool hop due to anticipated high occupancy.  May 23 through 26, 2014 are blackout dates, so if you want to pool hop, you should plan this for later in your vacation.

    If you would like to read the full information on pool hopping,  you can visit the Disney Vacation Club Member Website.  After you log in, go to the tab for "Membership Magic" and select "Perks" from the drop-down menu.  On this screen, choose "Recreation & Relaxation," and you will find information on pool hopping.

    Have a wonderful time planning your first Disney Vacation Club trip, Melinda!  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
