Not sure what camer Kurby was using but I just got a small handheld - the Kodak playsport and it's waterproof up to 10ft. It's the size of a cellphone - can't wait to bring it on our trip in Oct.

come out of the lobby and wonder left over the bridge to grandmothers house we go.... oops wrong story LOL

over the bridge (You'll see that HUGE red water wheel attached to the side of the building) once over the bridge keep walking but remember to talk your shoes off cause you'll walk right into the pool

It's right next to the swimming pool - if it was anywhere else you'd land on the ground with a bump.

The pool is located on Ol' Man Island, which is just over the bridge from the food court.

After seeing some pics of Riverside, we decided next year to upgrade from value to POR. Really looking forward to it. Really want AB section... but we need a W/C accessible room and I read there are only 22 in the whole resort, so keeping fingers crossed.

Contact Disney in advance and speak with their special assistance folks who will be able to get a room pre-allocated for you on medical grounds. I can't remeber the number off the top of my head, but I know it's on the Resort Info page on my website.

[Just looked it up for you: 1-407-939-7807]
