For parties that include time in the pool:

  • Kids should come to the party with their swimsuit on under their clothes
  • Before entering the pool, children will need to pass a three- to five-minute swim test, or be within arm’s reach of a supervising adult while in the pool
  • Regular diapers may not be worn in the pool—swim diaper and plastic pants are required for children who aren’t potty trained
  • Additional requirements may apply
