    We'll be staying at POR. Are there lifejackets available @ the pool? Also, is the waterslide appropriate for a 5 yo who can swim with a lifejacket?

    Hi there Lora,

    I just spent a week at Port Orleans Riverside last month, and I have to say this resort is quickly becoming one of my favorites!  Ol' Man Island, the resort's main pool and recreation area is always a big hit with my 5-year old daughter as she can find plenty of things to keep her busy.

    Children's life vests are available at the pool and marina for your child's safety and can be used for the entire length of stay!  You can even take them to the water parks!  I think your 5-year old will love the water slide in The Swimmin' Hole Pool!  The slide is perfect for smaller children, as it is gradual and not super steep or fast! She wanted to "go" over and over again... we had a hard time getting her to leave each day!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
