    I read that you could use pools at hotels that were similar, (ie. port orleans French quarters guests at port orleans riverside). We are staying at pop century in October. Can we visit any other hotel pools?

    Hi, Amber!  In Disney terms, this is called "pool hopping", and generally, it is not permitted.  The exceptions to that rule include, as you mention, guests staying at Port Orleans French Quarter may use the resort pool at Port Orleans Riverside - and vice versa.  If you are staying at an All Star resort, you may use the pools at any of the All Star resorts.  Members of Disney Vacation Club may use the pools at most of the other Disney Vacation Club resorts (there are blackout dates and some exclusions).

    The resorts that allow pool hopping are kind of like "sister" resorts - they are in very close proximity to each other.  Guests of those resorts can usually walk between each other to access the pools.  Pop Century stands on it's own, and there aren't any resorts that allow park hopping with Pop Century.  

    My gang loves the Pop Century Hippy Dippy Pool!  I hope your family feels the same way!
