    If our party stays one group at Pop Century and one at the Art of Animation, are the pools interchangeable for the guests? Also is it a long walk to each over the bridge? Thanks

    Hi Diane!

    I'm so happy to hear that you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World!  You will love Art of Animation resort,  it features Disney's imagineering at its finest!  
    Art of Animation has 3 pools (The Big Blue, The Cozy Cone and Flippin Fins) that are intended for guest use only, each of these pools are gated and require a guest room key to access.  While the 3 pools at POP Century are not gated, they are also intended for guest use only.  "Pool Hopping" is a hot topic issue among many guests and while you may see it happening it is against Disney's policy.  I like to play by the rules so I just stick to using the pools at the resort where I am staying.
    The walk from POP Century to Art of Animation is a very pleasant walk and doesn't take that much time at all.  The resorts are connected by bridge, since Art of Animation was originally intended to be a resort featuring the earlier years of the 20th century, and is only a 5 to 10 minute walk between the two resorts food courts.  If you are staying at POP Century, I highly recommend taking a walk over to tour of Art of Animation.  I hope this helps and please let us know if you have any more questions!

    Best Wishes,
