I swear, if I see a snake at POR I will have a heart attack. I know different people have seem them slither across the path, but what happens if they are slithering toward you?

I read somewhere that the snakes can be up to four feet long. I am deathly afraid of snakes. Luckily I've never seen one at any of the WDW resorts we've stayed at in the past, but I've seen more mention of snakes at POR than anywhere else. I'm not afraid of seeing an alligator and I think the little lizards are cute, but snakes......

I know, I know, it's Florida and it's to be expected, but I'm freaking out about the snake sightings.

I've seen people saying it both ways for at least a year now. It's why I was asking what kind of tags they got.

Disney does not talk about split stays. They see you as having two separate stays. So you might get two separate DME mailings depending on how it was done on their end.

On that note - POR runners... I usually run really early in the am. We live in CST so it is lighter earlier. I see that sunrise isn't until well after 7am in Orlando. Has anyone run the jogging path before sunrise? If so, did you feel it was safe? Seems a silly question to ask about Disney but you never know....
I believe the jogging path is just the asphalt walking path along the river. It's almost never empty entirely. If I had better night vision I would feel totally safe being out there. Fwiw we left for breakfast before 7am today and although the dregs of sunset were there, it was nicely light.

CSR was soooo quiet, we never heard anybody. We were on the back of the building, and we were also very close to everything. I'm toyin with a royal room, river view, but am afraid of getting put at the very end of Paterre so far away from everything.

What to do, what to do...

I thought I answered you earlier, whoops... My hubby and son have no problem with the royal rooms and don't find them girly in any way. Sure there are pictures of girls. But our house has those, too.

I can relate as well, I have two boys, and we stayed in a Royal room last time we were at POR, and they really didn't think it was too girly. The headboards were really special.

Hi I just wanted to let you know don't worry about getting the last building in Parterre Place. Our room was assigned there last year. It was really quite nice and very quiet. It is a short walk to the bridge to the main building. Bonus you are very close to French Quarter if you want to use their facilities. The Royal Room was very nice. I don't think it is to feminine at all.
Enjoy.
P.S. We are headed back to POR in August.

Two quick questions

Is the water wheel at the Mill back up and turning?

Does anyone have any pics of these glow in the dark sliders for the magic bands?

Thanks

Oct. 9- 4:15 PM- 6:45 PM
Oct. 10-17 10AM- 11 AM and 3:15- 6:45 PM
Oct. 18- 10 AM- 11 AM and 3:15 to closing
Oct. 19- 10 AM- 5:30 PM

There will be additional busses running during these times for roundtrip transportation to these resorts.
I am at POR now. I asked a CM at the registration area about this tonight. At first, she didn't know anything about it, then she looked it up on her computer. First, she said it was only affecting Key West, then she said it was affecting POR....same times mentioned here. So glad you told me, or I never would have known! Going there for dinner Thursday. I think we'll leave before 3 so we can do the boat....will shop before dinner.

So, we've got a 7:30 reservation 10/13 at Raglan Road - guessing we should take the bus and hopefully take the boat home. Thanks for the heads up!

Just wanted to pop my head up to say "Hi". I've been lurking for a couple of weeks to get to know the boards a bit. What a great thread this is! Will be staying at POR with my DH, DS8 and DS5, the last week of Feb. It is their first time there and my first time since I was 11. :-). Can't wait! Thanks for the info you have provided so far. :-)
