    We're staying at the Pop Century, but I was wondering if we can also use the pool at the Art of Animation since it's nearby? I wasn't sure if you had to swipe your MagicBand to get into the pool area. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Diana!

    My family really enjoys Disney's Pop Century Resort, with its larger than life Disney icons and whimsical flair theming. When we stay there, we usually take a stroll on the Generation Gap Bridge, over Hourglass Lake, to visit Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Pool hopping, however, is strictly prohibited, as pools are for the exclusive use of that resort's Guests.

    Since you are staying at Disney's Pop Century Resort, you will not be permitted to use the pool at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. There are a few exceptions to this rule of complementary alternative pool use. For example, if the pool at a Disney Resort hotel is undergoing a refurbishment, Disney will arrange for pool privileges at another Disney Resort hotel nearby.

    In addition, pool hopping is generally allowed between Disney's Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter and Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside. Likewise, Guests staying at any of the All-Star Disney Resort hotels may pool hop between them. For example, Guests staying at Disney's All-Star Music Resort, can enjoy the pools at both Disney's All-Star Movies Resort and Disney's All-Star Sports Resort too.

    It is permitted to take advantage of complimentary alternative pool use when staying on Membership at any of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts. However, the privilege can exclude peak periods and blackout dates. At such times, Disney reserves the right to restrict pool access only to Guests staying at a specific resort hotel.

    All the above being said, Disney's Pop Century Resort, has Hippy Dippy Pool, Bowling Pool and Computer Pool. These are perfect for the entire family to splash around, or just relax under a shady palm tree, on a sunny Florida afternoon.

    Wishing you a splash-tastic time at the Walt Disney World Resort!
