Trending over on the DVC Boards this previous week was a dialogue surrounding the latest elimination of pool hopping privileges at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. In studying by way of this, I shortly started to query what number of members at the moment make the most of this profit and why Disney would restrict its availability at sure resorts.
For these unfamiliar with this perk of Disney Trip Membership possession, members are allowed to go to a wide range of swimming pools across the Walt Disney World Resort throughout their keep. This isn’t thought of a Membership Further and is out there to each direct and resale DVC homeowners.

In latest historical past, nevertheless, this “profit” has develop into topic to capability limitations, blockout dates throughout peak seasons, and a steadily rising lists of swimming pools the place pool hopping shouldn’t be accessible. These excluded swimming pools embrace:
Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Modern Resort – Bay Cove PoolDisney’s Artwork of Animation Resort – poolsDisney’s Seaside Membership Villas – leisure poolDisney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – poolsDisney’s Polynesian Village Resort – The Lava Pool and leisure poolDisney’s Wilderness Lodge – Boulder Ridge Cove Pool and The Copper Creek Springs PoolDisney’s Yacht Membership Resort and Disney’s Seaside Membership Resort – Stormalong BayDisney’s Polynesian Resort
Whereas I’m positive there are numerous who’ve utilized and loved this profit, I personally have by no means been drawn to the thought of pool hopping. With every DVC resort having its personal distinctive pool to get pleasure from throughout ones keep, the thought of packing up for the day and touring throughout property (particularly with Disney Transportation) doesn’t sound like a soothing method to spend a relaxation day away from the parks.

If Disney’s rising restrictions are any indicator of issues to return, I’d count on that the times of pool hopping could also be numbered. With the pool choices which can be at the moment beneath development at Disney’s Riviera Resort, this can seemingly instantly be part of the checklist of excluded choices when open in December 2019.
Share with me within the feedback under whether or not you will have pool hopped throughout a DVC keep and whether or not you consider it’s nonetheless a priceless good thing about possession!
