    We are visiting Disney in June and staying at the Port Orleans-Riverside. The last two nights we're moving to the Polynesian. We're traveling with another family who will be at the Port Orleans. Can they visit us at Polynesian to swim and eat?

    Howdy, Christine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! It is so much fun to share your Disney experiences with family friends! You all are going to have a TIGGER-ific time!

    The past few years, Walt Disney World has tried to enforce the guideline that only guests staying a particular Disney resort can use the pool. These guidelines are meant to keep the pool traffic down so that guests staying there can truly enjoy the pool. HOWEVER, I have some MAGICAL news for you! I just spoke to a very helpful Cast Member, and she said that you can add day-guests to your reservation. When the other family comes over to visit you at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, please inform them to tell the Cast Member at the guard gate that they are here as day-guests of your family. It will be important to give your last name to the Cast Member working the guard gate. Once they park, please go the registration desk and add them to your reservation as a day-guest. You will then be free to enjoy the pool and eat with your friends! Don't you just love happy endings!?

    If you have other questions, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
