So I guess I am fine either way

We are getting so excited for this trip we can hardly stand it. It's only a month away but feels like an eternity right now!
I notice that you're in Canada; you may still be getting the old website, which doesn't have the same room request options as the new one.

My girlfriend and I are booked for May 24-June 2. She's never been to Disney, and I haven't been for probably 10 years. Very excited! I have gone through this whole thread, and will continue following it. Andre and Venom, you two are amazing!

Does anyone know how late the Campfire on de' Bayou runs in the winter? I see that it starts around 5:30pm but will we miss it if we don't get back to the resort until after 9pm or so?

Thanks!

I don't know exactly, but I would think that 9pm might be too late in winter. My guess is that it would run until sometime a little after the movie screening starts, but as I say I don't know for sure.

Any reviews lately from Boatwrights? I currently have a Dinner ADR there and not sure if we should keep it, or book something else? We will be in the MK that day and thought it would be convenient to eat Dinner after our break at POR.

Thanks again! Are there corner rooms in the mansions? Meaning, rooms with 2 windows?

Yes, big square mansions tend to have corners. There are several corner rooms in the immediate area you are looking for (see the floorplans on my website for details) but I wouldn't over-complicate your request too much, unless you are very specific that one request is just a "would also be nice if..." addon.

I hadn't eaten at Boatwright's for years, and we tried it again about three years ago and really liked it, and we tend to go back most visits now. OK it's not Victoria & Albert's or the California Grill, but we've really enjoyed our meals there.
