    I just got back from Poly, the pools were never rammed with people. A couple times I did a walk by of the quiet pool and there were only a handful of families in there.

    How do they check who belongs at a pool and who doesn't? When we went to the pool no one where blinked an eye about who was there and who wasn't. Or do they only check during busy periods?

    Some pools are gated and require a magic band scan to open the gate; at other resorts, CMs can walk around and scan guests' magic bands.

    I was at the Poly and our pool was like that with the gate.

    Interesting they scan bands while in the pool.

    Quick question, are you still allowed to bring your own pool floats to the quiet pools? Or is that not allowed now? Thanks in advance!

    I don't think they actually say no, but they tend to take up a lot of space in the pool. If there is a lifeguard near by at all, you won't be able to use your own float. Check the sign at the pool when you arrive to make sure.

    We are thinking of touring the resorts and not pool hopping but pool bar hopping! Is this allowed or are the pool bars in the gated areas?
