Photos for renovated AB room at POR?

Hi, my family and I are debating over staying at POR or POFQ, and we know that some AB rooms were recently renovated. So I was just wondering if anyone knew what the new rooms looked like and if they could show some pictures, that would help us to decide. Thanks!

Okay, the photos are kind of rustic looking. I'm really having second thoughts about POR now. Shower curtains with fish???

I was so worried about the rustic look....I kept saying I am not sure I want a bed with trees as the headboard.....However, we LOVED Port Orleans!! It was a great resort!

We just got back from POR in January and loved it, its not so much rustic as it is cottage feeling and I am not an outdoor person at all. If you liked the Princess and the Frog you can't help but fall in love with the room it has so many touches of Disney magic.

Yeah, kinda gross-looking. I definitely agree ...

I think they're cute. Seriously considering staying here next time we go. Of course, my DH is a fisherman. He's not really into Disney, but this decor may "buffer" that.

Thanks for showing the air mattress. My DS is too big for the murphy, but doesn't want to sleep with DD.

Thanks for posting the pictures, especially the air mattress. I have 3 kids who do not like sharing a bed.

definitely not gross-looking, just a different theme/feel to them! some people like that! i personally have requested an AB room for my february stay. i prefer them over the magnolia bend rooms, which to me look a bit stuffy, something you'd see in an old grandparent's house LOL. some people are into cottagey-rustic, others like the classier (?) feel to the mansions! it all depends on your personal taste! considering all the rooms are newly renovated i would definitely not say they are gross!
