    I'm a DVC member and will be staying at OKW in September. I would like to have friends we met on our DCL cruise last November, join us for a day at our resort. Will they be able to use the pool while there visiting us?

    Hi Anthony! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. How magical to have new-found friends after a Disney Cruise Line vacation! Your friends are absolutely welcome to visit you during your stay at Disney's Old Key West Resort. If they are arriving via Disney transportation you don't need to inform anyone about your plans. On the other hand, if your guests will be driving, you will need to make arrangements for parking with the front desk.

    As for using the resort pool, that's a bit tricky to answer and really depends on the discretion of the resort. Officially Disney policy states that only registered resort guests may use the pool. With MagicBands issued for all resort guests, it's very easy to spot non-registered guests. To have your friends join you and avoid issues, you will need to get permission from the front desk. When you check-in let the cast member know about your plans and perhaps they can issue a temporary pass for your guests. Please note this is entirely at the discretion of the resort so this may not always be possible. You definitely want to double check before making promises.

    I hope that helps answer your question. Sending Pixie Dust wishes your way that everything works out with your planning!
