Thanks for sharing!

I love the pics! We are leaving in 24 days and I just can't wait! Not just our first trip to POR but first trip to WDW! These photos make me feel very confident that we made a good choice!

It's a beautiful hotel! I love it. You made a great choice! I hope you have a great trip! You're smart to research the Dis... I happened upon it after my first trip, so I didn't know much. I still had a great time, but I didn't know anything at all.

My DH and I will be going back to POR in December -- our 10th stay!!!! We absolutely love POR and it sure looks like you do from all your great photos! We had only been there in November or December before our trip there this April when we went specifically to see how different the landscaping looked. It's nice to see how the resort looks in July now too! There is always something new to see on our walks around the resort and along the river down to French Quarter!

They had been working around one of the fountains, but it was done before we left.

Yes! I love the resort! It's beautiful. And so peaceful. I could go back in a heartbeat, but I would go back and stay at a Value resort too just to be at WDW.... But I'd also take a trip to POR/POFQ because I love them!
