    9 days until our first trip; any last minute advice for visiting? We have parks, meals, and lodging already planned. Staying at Port Orleans- will we be able to go to other hotels to swim and/or visit?


    There are always a million things that you can think of, but there are two that I would focus on;

    1. Do the Online Check-In. Just  click on "My Vacations" and you will see it there. This will save you time when you arrive and get you jump started in the magic and fun!
    2. Relax. This vacation has probably had more planning for you than any other past vacation. But now is the time for your vacation to be a VACATION! Relax, get ready to have fun, and let the magic sweep over you.
    As to your other question, yes and no. Yes, you can visit other hotels. Visiting other resorts and taking in their themes, restaurants, and other fun is a really great part of a vacation. However no, you cannot use their pools. Too many people were flooding into select pools in the past and making it impossible for guests of those particular resorts to get to use their own pool, so now pool-hopping is not allowed. But the pools at Port Orleans are great, so you will have plenty of fun there!

    Have a magical vacation!
