    I am sure they are. Is there some reason they aren't allowed at pools? My husbands goggles are prescription so he can still see while swimming lol.

    When we were there in June we used them every day! We went to Target and bought some while we were down there. They sold them in the gift shops at the resorts, but they are just the ones that cover your eyes. And our kids just HAD to have the ones that cover their nose too. They are kind of expensive at the resorts so if you can bring your own from home I would definitely do that!

    I don't know the "official" policy but my DD used a full mask all 7 days of our last trip to POR.

    They can be worn in the pools, but they cannot be worn down the slides. My kids swim very well but hate water in their faces and always have goggles on. They were asked to remove them when going down the slides at SSR, BC, and OKW.

    As long as they don't cover the nose, they are allowed.

    There is no problem with goggles. My son is a keen swimmer and always wears goggles.

    You must have been at a leisure pool without a life guard. Life guards want to see your nose and mouth.

    My kids could use them at the POP pools, but were not allowed at the wave pool at TL. The lifeguard said it was an injury risk.

    Nope, main pool at ole' man island. She had to take it off to use the slide only. The rest of the time she wore the mask. We never set foot in a quiet pool.

    My kids have used their eyes and nose goggles at AKL, POFQ, WL, and Poly. THe only time they had to be off was going down the slides.
