That would actually bring us to CBR ... wife thinks they look too Hokey / dated at the moment.

But I think talking about CBR is a little off topic from the POR thread ... still interesting stuff.

46 more days til POR !!!!!

Me too! I was apparently two weeks along when we booked. Ill be six and a half months when we go. Scary. I'm requesting mansions too. Hope yours goes well.

Yes, there are some on my site - but it looks basically the same as 14, 16, 17 and 18. Views vary from bayou to parking lot.

Good morning everyone.
This may sound weird, but we want to be near the parking lot. We don't need an accessible room but our daughter is disabled and we drive to the parks. I thought we'd have a better chance requesting 15 than 14 since it is more popular. We do have a preferred room booked. And good morning!

Yeah then check Andre's site: www.portorleans.org

He has pics from that building and parking lot pics looking at the buildings also.

So I've not really checked out this board in too much detail before, but hi everyone and hi Andre. I'm writing to tell you how amazing your site is - which is why I probably haven't really needed to use this board in any real detail before. Anyway, you should win an award for the best unofficial Disney resort site ever.

Have a magical day...

If I had a dream that I was staying at POR, does that mean someone is trying to tell me something?!

I think its too dark for my tastes, but it is very Poly-lite. I am sure the addition of the Murphy Bed will draw some folks away from POR who stay here simply because it is currently the only mod to sleep 5. CBR was never on my radar (even with the Pirate rooms) but if more folks head there, then there is more room for us at POR!!

I will say, that it looks like they will be getting wooden dividers (like CSR) to divide the sinks/bathroom area from the beds. Now THAT is nice and wish POR would have added that in their last refurb too...

I personally would love a river view but last year at POFQ while DD and were walking around the resort taking photos she bolted from me (she has autism) and ran down to the river's edge and almost fell in. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. She is very drawn to water and if we had a river view she would probably bolt every time the door was open. I might just go ahead and request Building 14 or 15, ground floor and near parking lot and just see what we are assigned. Thanks Venom!

Thank you for the info. Can I request a particular building? I booked standard but would like to be as close to the food court as possible.
