Only two more months until we check in. I'm so excited can hardly wait!

Thank goodness Christmas is in the middle - a little something to keep me occupied and make the time pass. Although I am off the whole Christmas break - lots of time for the Dis .....

We're staying at POR for the 1st time in January. Since we're a fam of 5 we're in AB and I believe we have a garden view due to the S/P/D offer.

I'm having trouble with the map so would love some advice. I know we will want to be as close to everything as possible. I think we'll also probably try to take advantage of the boat to DTD quite a bit. Thoughts?? TIA!

I will be at POR in 10 days! Have a "garden view" room booked as that was least expensive room available when I booked, what should I expect? I'd like to stay in the mansion section based on pictures but I generally like to leave it to fate because I almost always find something to like about the room I'm given I have only been to values before (Pop and ASMu, with ASMu being the favorite of those two) and am looking forward to trying a moderate!!

On a side note, are breakfast foods any better than at the values?? We are picky about breakfast foods (BF specifically, always thought the breakfast food at the value resorts tasted like it was sitting under a heat lamp) and tend to drive out to a Denny's or IHOP while at Disney. I'd really like to eat at the resort though due to how much less time it would take!

I can't wait and am counting down the days!
