    I've heard through the grapevine (unofficial of course) that the WDW resort is considering locking off all pools so that only resort guests with room key cards can gain access to the pool.

    I know we very often see people leaving the BWV area in wet suits with beach towels wrapped around themselves headed for the parking lot... implication is that they are staying elsewhere and using the BWV pool.

    I know Stormalong Bay has had its access controlled for some time. Had to do it as that place was overrun with non-paying visitors.

    So? What do you think? An idea who's time has come, or overkill and not necessary?

    Well I'm very for having rules and procedures and if people don't adhere to them then there need to be repurcussions. Lock them all out I say! After you've flogged them of course:tongue: :wiggle:

    Flog them and then put them in a locked viewing area forcing them to watch the guests enjoying the pool. :evil:

    I don't want this to be cruel punishment, so I will allow them to have sunscreen.

    We've never tried to use a pool at a resort at which we were not staying. However, I think this is a good idea.

    I love It's a Small World. :yes: It was Herself's Da's favorite attraction, as well as Mama's so it has special meaning for us. Also, when the Boy was a wee little boy, he loved the music there. Soooo, all that to say, banishment to It's a Small World is not a punishment to us! :D


    I'm with you John. We've never even cared to use another pool. I know with DVC there are some resorts that we can pool hop to, but honestly who wants all the hassle? :unsure:

    In some ways, I'm not too bothered by a WDW resort guest using a WDW resort pool, however I do understand that Stormalong Bay would be mobbed.

    It's the non-WDW guests that use the pools that kind of irk me. I don't much give too hoots (or even three) what others do with their time, or what personal choices a person makes for her/himself so don't pay too much attention to that kind of stuff.

    But, given all the issues WDW seems to be having, something should be done. Keeping the pools only for guests staying at that resort seems the only really reasonable way. Flogging not withstanding, of course.

    I suspected it happened but never gave it much thought really, however if the resorts got too crowded then I can see it becoming a problem and it's not really fair to those guests if they can't enjoy the pools they've paid for. So yep... hang them and flog them and leave them to dry out in the sun.... heathens! Oh and can I use the taser on them too.... while they're still all wet?

    I have looked on longingly at Stormalong Bay though..... :(

    Not exactly the same but we tried the Riverside pool when we stayed at the French Quarter. And you are right, not really worth the hastle is it? I mean the pool at our place was very nice. The kids wanted to go all Huck Finn.

    This will mean an end to the ducks in the pool at the Wilderness Lodge then. Not once have I seen them towelling off and heading for their room

    This probably means then that all the ducks will move to Memphis and hang out at the Peabody Hotel there.
