    Are the leisure pools at Port Orleans Riverside heated?

    Hi Justine,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    How lovely that you are planning a vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort in January and are interested in staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside.  I have a special place in my heart for this Disney Resort and its nearby sister Resort, Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter.   These two Resorts are just a short stroll away from each other along the Sassagoula River and whenever my husband and I stay there, we make a point to enjoy a leisurely walk from one Resort to the other during our stay. 

    You will be happy to know that all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotel pools are heated year-round to a balmy 82 degrees.  I have visited during some cold months and having heated pools really makes all the difference.  At Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, there is one main pool called Ol' Man Island and 5 other leisure pools nestled among the Alligator Bayou and Magnolia Bend sections.

    Since you will be visiting in mid-January, I hope that you will be able to visit the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.  Although next year's exact dates haven't been released yet, last year it began in mid-January so I'll send some Pixie Dust your way and hope that you will be visiting while the festival is taking place.

    Thank you so much for stopping by planDisney with your vacation planning question.  As you continue with your planning, please bring all of your questions to us right here at planDisney where we are always excited to help you plan your next Magical adventure.

    See Ya Real Soon,
