Very cool, we were there in January. It was our first stay at the resort and we had a great stay. If you can swing it I recommend taking the carriage ride. DW and I did it and we had a nice time.

Congrats! POR is our fav moderate resort. Be sure to take some time to stroll around and enjoy the beautiful landscaping.
Bob Jackson puts on a fun show in the lounge. All ages love it. The Make your own pasta in the food court is a big hit with us.
Have you made all your ADRs yet?

You will love it there. Are you staying in mansions or bayou? We always stayed in bayou but last year we stayed in the mansions to get the refurbed rooms and now we like both! Have a great time.

I can't wait to see it, and even though it will be February we'll be swimming every day if the kids have anything to do with it!

I made 4 of our 6 table service ADR's today - Biergarten dinner, 1900 Park Fare character dinner, Akershus princess dinner and Tusker House character lunch. I'm having a problem filling the other 2 with somewhere we'd really like to eat. Be Our Guest is booked, as to be expected, as was Chef Mickey's and 'Ohana. Any suggestions for the other 2? My kids are 7 (boy), 5(girl) and 4(boy).
