Cool, Thanks, I was not concerned until I saw someone got a response.

Well, I'm here now at POR. I decided to leave my room selection to Disney and am in Alligator Bayou.

The decor is very different than the Mansions where I usually stay but I kind of like it. I need to get my bearings better though. It took me 30 minutes last night to find my room from the bus stop after I got back from MK. I got all turned around and the nighttime lighting isn't enough for me. It was pretty comical.

It's also a bit of a hike to the food court so I decided against getting a refillable mug. I just bought some bottle drinks for my breaktime in the room.

I can't believe I got into Disney's wireless internet. Hopefully I'll be able to do so again later in the trip.

The resort is still nice as usual and I'm having fun despite all of the rain. Have poncho will play is my motto this trip!

If you got a package, I know that the refillable mugs are included now for each guest on the reservation. You can refill them....Down by the Riverside, Down by the Riverside....

Are they included with all packages? Or only if you have the dining plan?

Thanks!

Only if the dining plan is part of the package. Just room and tickets, no.

Aww... Bummer. That's kind of what I thought but the way the other person replied it almost sounded like it was for any package. I thought that was too good to be true, lol! Oh well!

Thank you for the great info. Now I have one more question. If I want to bring the kids to the kids club at the swan and dolphin, how do I get there from the Riverside? It seems to be the closest to the boardwalk where we can have dinner and a drink and not be to far from the kids. Thanks again!

SkywayGuy, another wow! Lol I apologize if I sound sexist, I'm just not accustomed to seeing that kind of organization skills in men outside of a workplace. But then again, I may just not have come into contact with any b/c I am a hardcore type A personality that plans & organizes to the point of obsession and there's only room for one of those in each house lol The men in my life have always been the "you wanna do what? How much is it going to cost? When? Ok, that sounds fun" type. Which is perfect for me!!!

I didn't think they were 'girly' at all really. Now, I was with a 5 year old girl but the colours are neutral and it's just very lovely. Go for it!

Question - DH & I always stay in a Preferred AB room. Has anyone stayed in a Riverview Room at Magnolia Bend? Are they nice, and pretty convenient to get to Ol Man Island and the food court, etc. or are they quite a hike? I've gotten spoiled by staying in Bldgs 14 & 18 in AB & they're so close to food court, bus & a quiet pool, but for a fall trip we were thinking about a different location. TIA for all your info!

Sorry - no pictures. The Bayou buildings all look identical from the outside. We were in room 1805 ground floor probably right in the middle of the building cuz it was close to the ice machine, etc. I really liked the room layout because it had good storage & a door on the bathroom vs. building 14 which had the curtains across the bathroom area. We really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the quiet pool too. Have fun!!

According to the map, and to whats posted at Portorleans.org, the riverviews are very close to Ol' man island.

Hopefully I can tell you for sure in 2 days 16 hours or so
