I saw a Youtube video and it looked like there were two big slides at the main pool and two small ones by the pirate boat. Is that correct or is it just one at the big pool? And can parents go down the big slide too?

There are 2 larger slides for kids and adults at the main pool, as well as a zero entry area for the little ones. the childs area with the pirate ship and dumping station has 2 smaller slides and many climbing areas and zero entry area. We just returned from there and loved the main pool area. There is also a hot tub at the main pool

The food court and pool are not at the front of the resort, so there is a bus you can catch that's very close to the food court. You do not need to go back to your island.

thank you. One more question, if we eat breakfast at OPR, do we need to go back to our island bus stop, I was reading on this thread that the park busses don't stop at the front. tia

There is a bus stop at Old Port Royale. No need to go back to your island to catch the bus.

Well thank you! Although this is a trip for just ME! I'm going for a conference for 3 of the days so the other 3 days are for me to tour WDW my way. I'm a little bummed because I'll be there over Mother's Day...alone. It's bittersweet because I love to spend it with my kids (although DH always stresses about the day) but it's a really awesome mom's day gift to enjoy WDW MY WAY

Lucky! How is the online check-in process now? Still the same, or has it changed any? (I haven't used it since May 2011.)

I am hoping for Jamaica 45 as well! I threw in 44 in case 45 is full. We last used online check in two years ago. From what I remember, it is about the same. The only issue was that it wouldn't take my request for Jamaica, so I had to call. We plan on arriving really early in the AM and are hoping that our room is ready when we get there so we can freshen up after driving all night. The kids will have (hopefully) slept all night and I'm sure will be anxious to head out to the parks When we went two years ago, we had just been hammered by a snow storm and our flight was severely delayed. We missed a whole day in the parks and were bummed We had other family members who were meeting us there mid week. Low and behold, Maryland go hit with another whopper. Flights were cancelled for the remainder of the week. They decided to drive and said it wasn't too bad so we thought we'd try it this time

Here come the questions

I have literally traveled the world over but as I get older I get more concerned about my safety. I will be traveling alone and have reserved the cheapest room available. Is there any particular location I should request? I usually request anything but a 'ground floor' room when I travel alone but is there anything else? Or maybe I'm safer at Disney than the local Hampton Inns in a 'regular' city?

Thanks!
