    Heading to POR January 27-February 3rd. Curious to know what the hours for Ol Man Island and the quiet pools are? Also are there cabanas to rent there? What is their pricing? Thanks!

    Hi Kathryn!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside is one of my family's favorite resort hotels on Walt Disney World Resort property. I love the relaxed, rustic charm of the resort, the dining options, and the awesome pools. The rooms really feel like a home away from home, and that makes a difference when on vacation!

    Depending on the time of year, pool hours at Port Orleans - Riverside vary and are always subject to change. Typical pool hours are from 9:00am to 10:00pm, but you'll want to make sure to check the Resort Recreation Calendar once you arrive to be sure of the exact hours of operation (you'll receive a copy in your Welcome Packet when you check in at the resort). If you'd like to call and ask any questions regarding the pool hours before your visit, you can reach Port Orleans - Riverside by calling (407) 934-6000. At this time, cabana rentals are only available for rental at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    Moms Panel Tip: If you have an opportunity to try the cornbread at Boatwright's Dining Hall during your vacation, do it - it's AMAZING. I asked for (and received) the recipe on one of our last visits!

    I hope this helps with your planning. Please let us know if you have any further questions before your Walt Disney World vacation. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
