I'm trying to convince extended family to switch from windsor hills to POR for free dining. We have a family meeting tomorrow to decide. I will have to show them the wonderful pictures you all have posted. Maybe that will change their minds!

Last year when planning our trip, you originally had ressies for a TH in WH. Then the FD offer came out so we cancelled our ressie and stayed at POR with FD. So glad we did. Staying onsite is so nice and FD is awesome.

We stayed onsite with the dining plan (not free) out last trip and had a great time. There are 9 of us going this time (3 kids, 6 adults) and we initially thought staying at a vacation home would save us money. Now with the option of free dining, I have figured out we will only have to spend $100 more to stay onsite, and to me that is worth it. Hopefully the others will be easy to convince. Wish me luck!!!

So did the free food talk them into it?

I love this sight and am so excited about staying here. I am just mad I booked last August and reserved a waterview not realizing it wasn't a view of the river and forgetting we didn't have a balcony since we booked it in our room at the AKL last year. I didn't put one and one together. Now there are no non-waterview rooms. I wasted $260. after having to add my daughter which they forgot to put on last years reservation when she turned 3. I am so dumb.

Put in a request for a RIVER view rather than just a water view. It's not guaranteed, but if you do get a room overlooking the river the locations are great as they are generally much closer to the main building. Think of it as a semi-preferred location.

And even if you don't get a private balcony, the views are still very nice and because of the overall size of the resort the individual walkways are generally pretty quiet anyway, so people quite often sit outside their rooms to enjoy the view.
