I feel exactly the same way about POFQ. I hate those faces. Looking at you from all directions. We are staying at POR for the first time and I hope it is all that I dream it will be. We have always stayed at Values. I am so excited. It is going to be the best vacay I have had in a while!

I think the pics are what have done me in as well!

Staying for first time at POR in a royal room standard view. Here is my question. Arriving really late around 1 am. How far of a walk approx will it be from front desk to room? With kids and all our luggage I'm hoping not too long. Thanks!

This is so pretty We are leaning toward staying here our next trip. We did stay here a long time ago when it was called Dixie Landings in the mansion section. We would like to try the AB this next time.

This is a photos thread, it might be best to check out the FAQ thread instead.

But it really is a "how long is a piece of string" question; it could be anything from as little as 300 yards up to 600+ yards from the front desk to your room door. It might be easier to drive round (if you have a car) and park behind your building and walk from there - or cheat and get Bell Services to take your luggage and ask if you can go with them on their pargo.

I agree about POFQ hanging faces ! What were they thinking when they did this resort ! That is one of the reasons I dont want to stay there .
