Thanks for the pictures!

I had my mind made over POFQ for more than a year, but we save around $900 with the FD, and we have 2 other out-of-country trips planned within 8 months, so, it appeared wiser to look into cutting some expenses. I was quite sad.

BUT, with all the pictures you posted, I'm falling for POR!

Thanks a lot!

Take a look at the Riverside 360-degree Panoramas I just posted at www.portorleans.org/panoramas.php and tell me you don't now love Riverside....

This whole thread brings a smile to my face because three months ago, I was at WDW with my family and I walked those same pathways at POR.

I liked the food at Boatwright's, yet I respect your opinion.

LOVE this thread! We will be there in 68 days, cannot wait to see it all in person. Hope they still have the banana-stuffed French toast.

Sorry, but that was a Boatwright's breakfast item, and Boatwright's stopping serving breakfasts about four year ago. You can still get regular French Toast at the Riverside Mill food court though.

And I have been mourning that decision ever since. I used to look forward to breakfast at Boatwright's every trip. After the closing of the bars/improv at Pleasure Island, this is the Disney decision that hurt me the most.

Here are some pictures I took in late August on our first time staying at POR.

I am a little disappointed in myself for not capturing more areas of the resort after seeing so many great pictures on this thread.





















































continued in next post,,,,,

Thanks for all the lovely photos, I especially like this one. The clouds and the perfect reflection in the still water really make it special:

clearskies - Stunning photos! Thank you so much for sharing them! We are considering changing our upcoming trip from WL to POR. Looking at your photos makes me feel like we aren't "downgrading" at all!

Thank you all very much for your nice comments.

Andre,
that was my favorite pic as well and yes I had a couple of days where I was out strolling with my camera before sunrise. That is when I usually find the best colors in the sky. Well, sunset and immediately following as well but I am never at the resort at that time since we are usually out and about. The problem I have with the early morning pics is that as soon as my camera hits the thick August Florida humidity after being refrigerated in the room AC overnight my lenses instantly fog up and It take about a half hour for them to be ready for action.

Grammy Hammy, mickey1968, mum2four you will love the resort. It is very scenic. I hope you all have great trips. I am jealous.
