MGM POOLS: best locations to sit?

We heading to MGM Skylofts in a couple of weeks. My question is: Which part of the pool (child friendly!) is the shadiest, or has the most umbrellas (for diaphanous son), with good access to the water? i looked for a map of the pool, but couldn't find one. Will the river be running during the week in June? thanks....

I'm sure the river will be running next month.

re:shade, actually I would say near the river. There are a few areas that are shaded by structures ( that the river winds under/near ). Best thing is to wander around and see, much of the MGM pool area is sunny, but I'm sure you'll be able to find something.

There are shirts that block the UV rays for kids that you wear in the water - I know they sell them at Target, can't think of their name.

thanks for posting so lightning quick! i'll remember to pack a couple of "sunshirts" .... but, what do you mean about the river not being kid friendly? is it really fast? is it faster than the one at Mandalay Bay? (which just coasts, and my son is a really good swimmer)... also, do you all know where the pool is in relation to the Skyloft area? which doors are the closest to the pool? which towers they are in? since i've never been to this hotel, i'd like to get my bearings via map.

Hi- Go to the MGM website and click on amenities, a list will come up with info about the pools, and there is a link to a map of the pool complex.

I think what the previous poster meant was the river is more of a "adult" party atmosphere, at least it was when I was there last.

Why don't you just get there and look? It depends on the time of day since the sun tends to move across the sky.

Another question about MGM pools/river...

Can you take your own inflatable ring or do you have to hire from MGM?
