What floaties are allowed in the pool?

We are staying at POP and I am curious if any floaties are allowed. I have a pop up infant floatie. I don't want to bring it a long if I won't be able to use it. Thanks

it varies .Usually they allow SMALL rings, arm floaties, noodles and life jackets. They do not allow " LARGE rings, inner tubes, rafts, floating lounge chairs.They may or may not allow the infant float.It depends on how busy the pool is.The lifeguards need to see the bottom of all areas of the pools at all times.larger floats obstruct views and cast shadows making it difficult.Sometimes they allow the infant floats, sometimes they don't

We've used arm floaties and inflatable rings evertime we stay at Pop. We have also seen other people bring noodles.

I've never seen large black tubes or raft loungers. But, anything small and personal size seems to be fair game.

Our kids used arm floaties at POR in 2007... but that was the last year they needed them. I saw kids w/ them at WL and BC w/in the last 2 years also. BC I saw tubes... they have to be clear, though. We rented one for the day to do the lazy river but some people brought their own.

BC tends to go back and forth on whether they will let you use your own.When I was there in Sept 08, the lifeguards were saying you could not use from home even if they are clear.
