I'm all about the reason for the change in the first place: more steril. I'm willing to trade the colorfulness for the assurance that my ENTIRE bed will be clean and sterilized upon my arrival. And the runners make a nice accent!

Maybe it's just me, but that sounds more like a stay in hospital than a Disney vacation...

I'm with you. The ambience earound the resort is fine. I feel. Much safer getting into a clean bed where I can see if a bug is on it.exterminators are more costly then a disney trip.. There's more important issues to whine over then white bedding. I think smoking section right out the food court door is much worse then the white bedding. Who wants to smell that when they are getting morning coffee. Ewwww bad spot for a smoking section

I like this much better. The comforter had a nice design on it, but was still just a quilted comforter which seems to be rather cheap-looking to me. I like this much better. The splash of color/design on the runner is very nice. I'm more about the furniture and other decor in the room, anyway.

You're not the only one When we were there at the end of October, we thought it was blah. You can still have a mostly white spread but add some colored threading to it, just outlining the pattern might help. It would also be nice if the pattern was themed after the resort or Disney instead of of just straight lines, squares or diamond shapes. JMO

YES French Quarter has fridges. Sorry about the previous post. As you see I'm new but had the best time at FQ at the end of October.

I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Hey Andre, will you be posting Mardi Gras parade info.

I just realized I'll be at WDW on Mardi Gras (wouldn't you know my next trip I will not be at a PO resort). I would like to visit to see the parade of 'floats' but since I won't be there I'm not sure how to get the info. Will they have info up at the resort or is it in the activity schedule?

Just try to avoid MK on Mardi Gras. It was super crowded this year on that date. It was such a relief to be in EP and then AK the following 2 days; they were not busy at all.

I'm glad they are doing away with the bulky comforters. !we try to fold them up at the bottom of the bed, but during the night they invariably fall off the bed. a person going from the bed furthest from the bathroom TO the bathroom during the night ends up tripping on the darned thing on the floor at the foot of the closer bed. and I don't like the weight of it on my feet.

This aggrevated me no end on our trip...walking in to fill my mugs, here's a helping of smoke...

We witnessed many smokers not at DSA's the whole trip, so disrespectful. The worst was the old lady who refused to follow directions to smoke in DSA during the AAA fireworks viewing at MK. Her smoke drifted over towards us for the whole show, despite being asked by CM to move to the DSA...
