    My five year old son takes swimming lessons and only needs 1 back float to swim. Can he wear a back float in the pool? Or does it have to be a full life jacket?

    Hi Melissa,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! If you are asking about the Disney Resort Hotel pools, each resort offers a limited supply of life jackets, though not required to wear. They are first come, first served, so if it is important to you to have your son in a life jacket, you can always bring one from home. As long as it is a personal water device your son wears, it will be permitted in the pools. (noodles, for example, would not be permitted!)

    You will find the Disney Resort Hotels to offer family-friendly recreation and pool areas, created just perfectly for little ones!

    Have a wonderful time, Melissa, and don't forget your sunscreen!
