No, the OP is right, there is only one pool-view category room in Parterre (well, two, in the same location one above the other). Most of the Pool View Royal Rooms are in Oak.

According to andres sight portorleans.org there are only 2 pool view rooms in Parterra. The rest are river view, garden view or standard. The pool is situated in such a way that Oak has more pool view and only one corner of Parterra could have an actual view of the pool.

No height requirement. They let the kids wear life vests on the slide as well. Parents were going up with their child then coming back down 1 st to play catch.

The pool was around 3 ft. My DD is around 40 and just turned 4, 3 days after we returned this Thursday and could touch. I got both kids vests. It is free to rent them for the week. Don't lug the puddle jumper. You just go to boat rental desk and show them your card. You keep it in your room and return it when your trip is over. They did have a kiddie pool as well but the kids seemed to all be in the big pool. It was empty whenever we walked by or went swimming. We didn't try it out because my daughter swims.

I'm glad they have a kiddie pool as my youngest is not yet 3 and I wasn't sure if there was one age could just stand and has a little splash in.

Hi we will be getting to Por to check in around 7-7:30 am. October trip. I understand my room
Probably Won't be ready and they will take my bags for us to go on...I have an ADR at Cape May at 9am (have a car rented). Last trip was POP and checking in at 3pm was crazy long wait. I would think most aren't checking in at 7:30am so we won't be waiting crazy long. What do you think? I keep thinking that 9am breakfast might have to be moved.

Anywhere between about 250 yards and 500 yards, depending on what room you are in.

I think you'll be ok, especially if you do online check in. I don't think it will take you more than an hour to check in. As long as you are on your way to BC before 8:30, I think you'll be fine.

Andre, I am impressed - yards, that is pretty good!

We are here!! Arrived around 2:00, and were able to check right in - no line and had not done online check in. And we got our request for connecting rooms with my parents, corner room in Oak Manor! The girls are in love with our Royal Room!! Took a walk around the resort - everything is beautiful! Went to DTD to get our PP+ and have dinner, now kids are asleep and my parents arrive any minute on ME! Excited to head to HS tomorrow :-) Thanks to Andre and everyone on here for all the tips!!

I'm not even sure how online check in works. I will have to figure out how many days before I can do that since I won't be around a computer for a week before we even get to Disney. We are offsite before our Disney trip starts. Hubby figures we will be at POR by 7. It was planned to be an early morning with breakfast at 9am. We just need to check in first.

Online check in can be done up to 60 days before check-in as long as you are in the USA. I think it's still 10 days if you live in the United Kingdom.
