Just back from POR...
 
I posted this on the POR thread but I wanted people that may be on the fence about POR to see our review of our FAVORITE resort:thumbsup2

We just got back and had a FANTASTIC time at POR-AB!:thumbsup2 We booked a preferred room and at check in we were told that we could have a room in building 18 now or wait and have a room in building 15. We had been up since 3am so we took the room that was ready!:laughing:

The room was VERY clean! I even checked the tops of the mirrors...:blush: no dust! LOL!

The main pool heater was broken during our stay so it was COLD....but the quiet pools were perfect.

Bus service was GREAT!! We never waited more than 10 mins going to and from places.

The boat service was another story:rolleyes2 It took us more than a hour to get back from DTD because there was an issue with boat captains and shift changes:confused3 We missed our ADR at Boatwrights because of the delay.

They were able to take us late but our DD melted half way through dinner and I took her back to the room. My DH and son stayed and finished dinner. It was DELISH! They brought my dessert back to the room for me!:lovestruc

We have stayed at POR many times and we have always loved it. This time was no different and we will be back! We booked a bounceback offer for OCT.

GREAT Staff, GREAT Atmosphere, GREAT Vacation....can't ask for more!:goodvibes:thumbsup2:goodvibes

Did your bounceback offer include "free dining" for Oct.?

No... just 35% off Deluxe or 30% off Mod rooms.

We are 2 adults, a teen and a toodler... the room was fine for us but honestly with the stroller and the luggage trying to squeeze 2 playpens or pack and plays would be almost impossible... I just do not think there is enough floor space even if you pile the luggage under the window.

Alligator Bayou - Fold Down Bed
 
Do you think the fold down bed in Allegator Bayou rooms is as big as the previous roll away or pullman bed?

We stayed at POR back in 2010 and the third bed was perfect for my DD, but she is three years older now and probably a foot taller (around 4'9").

The DS and DD don't like sleeping in the same bed, so we will need three beds to work with our group.

Thanks!

We never used the older style roll away they had but the new fold down bed was larger than I thought it would be and my teen who is about 5'2 fit just fine on it. He had to sleep on the other queen because the 2 year old called dibs on the "alligator" bed! LOL;)

Fantastic - that was what I was hoping for. We love the POR and when I had a look at the new beds, I thought it was only going to get better!

Thanks!:cool1:
