DH booked one on Valentine' s Day at the POR desk like 4 years ago! It was nice to see both resorts and our horse was one they used for the Headless Horseman in the MNSSHP! I thought that was very cool!

I had read on the WDW site that this was $45 per person, not per carriage ride. Do people know that to be true?

Also...I see that we are able to reserve carriage rides well in advance (like ADRs), but my question is - are reservations that far in advance really necessary? Unlike restaurant ADRs, I was hoping the horse-drawn carriage around POR could be something we check into no earlier than the day of our arrival. Do most people on these forums actually reserve these far in advance, or keep it to more of a spur-of-moment delight?

We just did the carriage ride in April for DH's birthday & we reserved it when we checked in. No problem got the time for that same might. We paid $45 for the 2 of us not per person for the half hour ride. We were staying at POR. We had the option of touring POR or POFQ & chose to see POFQ. The ride was amazing & Laurie was a fountain of information. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

We just did the carriage ride a little over a week ago. It was definitely $45 for the whole ride. We charged it to our room. I reserved ours a little over a month before we arrived and the times were open however we heard multiple people asking if times were available when we were there and they were all booked. Of course we were there during a super busy time so I suppose depending on when you are going that could change. To be safe I would book something in advance if it is something you really want to do. It was very relaxing and the grounds are beautiful.
