It was a decent sized round kiddie pool for a hotel. It is right by the main pool so you can do both.

Thanks
It reallu depends where you are. Andre has the distance perfected. From the river side of oak was about 3 mins. And from the parking lot behind oak the walk was about 5. Depends of course on how fast you walk. Nothing seemed that far honestly.

We rented from baby wheels. You just go to the bell services desk and ask for the stroller. They just gave it to my husband. Our room wasn't ready so we grabbed it and headed to the MK.

Royal Room Upgrades?

Since the Royal Rooms have come out and 2 mansion buildings are solely dedicated to these rooms now, have there been people getting surprise upgrades to Royal Rooms? I'd imagine this would / will happen during times those rooms are low in bookings?

Finally popping in to give my POR review. First I want to thank Andre and Venom for being so helpful in this thread.
We stayed from 4/27 to 5/3. I used Venom's fax template and sent my fax a few days before we arrived. I did mention that my daughter was turning 9 while we were there. I did online check in and upon arrival we found out that we had been upgraded to a Royal Room with a courtyard view in Panterre Place. It was gorgeous. The whole resort was beautiful from the lobby to the grounds and the rooms. The staff were all friendly and accommodating. We loved the food court usually just picking up a small bakery item in the morning but we did eat dinner there most nights and tried the make your own pasta station which was good but my fave was the make your own salad station.

The only complaint I have was the Mousekeeping. I had old food under the bed that stayed there the whole time and they never replenished our coffee cups or switched out the soaps. I did leave a 5 dollar tip every day. My only guess is that the resort is so large and there are only so many Mousekeepers to go around they must have to really hurry to get the job done. On the whole though we were really satisfied with our stay and really enjoyed being upgraded to a Royal Room!

Hey guys
My DH will have rent scooter while at WDW because of leg problems. During the night time where can the scooter stay? I think it will take uo to much space in our room. Maybe if we asked for a handicapped room. Any thoughts.

When free dining is offered, are the Royal Rooms excluded? I know that the Little Mermaid rooms are at AoA, so I suspect the Royal Rooms are as well due to their limited number and popularity but I wanted to double check. Thanks!!

Asking again

Does it matter which bus depot you leave from to get to MK before rope drop? Can't recall the pick up order, etc.....

When we were there a couple if weeks ago, the south depot (in front of main building) was the first pick-up to MK and the last drop-off when returning to POR. The west depot was the last pick-up and the first drop-off.
