All Stars Music ?s - pool lift and room locations

Spoke with someone at the desk at All Stars Music. They have installed a pool lift! This is wonderful for us. Last time we went there and my son wanted to get in the pool (with the three caballeros) it took us and several other vacationers to get him back out! :-) We stayed there one more time with no pool time before moving to the Caribbean Beach. Would like to try to save a few bucks this time. (We are doing the wheelchair accessible Wild Africa Trek. Yay!)
Does anyone have a photo of the lift - I want to start thinking about safe transfer methods.
My son is a big man and I want to see how far away from the water the chair swings, etc. The one at a local pool here is old and doesn't really provide a comfortable stance for me to transfer him.
Also does anyone know if there are roll-in showers in all of the sections?

It's like combining the teacups with a roller coaster

I do have pictures of the pool lifts, but will need to load them tomorrow.

Each resort does have roll in showers in multiple sections of the resort.
