    We are staying at the PO-Riverside from Feb22-Mar2. Just found out the Ol Man pool is closed for rehab while we are there. is it better to switch to another resort given that we have a 4 yr old and a 9 month old? Will the french quarter have a kids pool?

    Hi Ilona,

    Yes the Ol' Man pool (the main pool with slides etc) is going to be closed for refurbishment during your stay until 28th February. Obviously you're welcome to switch resorts if available but Port Orleans Riverside has 5 other pools throughout the resort for your use. They are quiet pools without any slides or lifeguards but whenever my family have stayed at POR we've actually preferred them.

    You are also more than welcome to use the fantastic Doubloon Lagoon pool over at Port Orleans French Quarter, this is a great pool for young children with a huge sea serpent slide. There is a boat you can catch for the short ride from POR to POFQ.

    Have a great trip,
