Is it warm enough at the end of February to swim? We normally travel in the summer months, but I'm planning on running the Princess Half in February so we are doing a family vacation then! I think my girls would be disappointed if they could not avail of the pools!

Depends on your luck, and how hardy you are. It might be mid/upper 70s during the middle of the day, or it might be 40s-50s. The water is heated of course, but the air isn't...


(Riverside Feb 2010. It was chilly, but we Brits weren't put off!)

Yikes! It will be a test as to how hardy we can be! Thanks

Great work on the website, by the way!

Those rooms are indicated with red room numbers on my floorplan maps. I'd suggest calling the special assistance line on 1-407-939-7807 and see what they can get set up for you to make life easier.

I am in one of those Florida Special rooms right now and will definitely recommend it. I love the extra security of the grab bar when getting in and out of the tub. The wardrobe for hanging clothes is also nice - I like it better than the bar in the bathroom that you usually hang clothes on.

Could you maybe get a few photos before you leave? I didn't know they had those extra wardrobes in the Florida Special rooms too, only in the two types of wheelchair-accessible rooms (both of which feature the 'open-plan' bathroom/wash area, with the toilet, sink and bath or roll-in shower within one room).

Do you know if you can get detergent or softener near the machines? Would prefer not to risk packing it if possible but if its a fortune we will bring from home.

Thanks :-)

Most laundry rooms have a vending machine that spits out those little boxes of soap. Usually takes quarters. Change machine should be in the laundry room for washers and detergent.
