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.

Thank you for sharing. We're staying at POR for the first time in September and can't wait.

Thanks so much for posting these. I'm especially glad to see the pictures of the air mattress. We have to travel with one of those so I'm glad to know that the newly refurbished rooms at Riverside will still accommodate one.

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.

I think it's cute too! The whole room just flows together. And my boys loved it! You're welcome! I looked around for pictures like the ones I took of the air mattress before we left on our trip and couldn't find any. I was worried it wouldn't fit... but it did. And so did our Britax B-Ready double stroller. So the rooms were roomy enough for us!
