This thread has made me so excited to stay at POR. I was really torn cause I was staying my entire vacation at BWI on bounceback when the AP rates came out. I have wanted to try PO but didn't want to pay full price when I can get a room at the Swan/Dolphin for the same price. With the AP rate I decided to do a split stay. . .Now I am at POR for 5 nights and BWI for three nights. . .this has me VERY excited. . .and these pics have SOLD this place to me.

I'm staying here in October and I am SO excited I stayed there when it was still Dixie Landings a long time ago, but I don't remember it well at all. We should be in the AB section since we need the trundle bed, which, based on the pictures, I think I"ll like more than the mansions. Thanks for all the great pics! I can't wait!

Same here. It has gotten a few bad reviews which worried me at first. The good reviews outweigh the bad ones. Everyone has their own tastes. POR just doesn't suit some. I think it looks absolutely gorgeous. I don't know where they will put us, that's a part of the surprise for me. I know I will enjoy it no matter what.

POR is such a beautiful place, it would be nice if they did the photopass "private sessions" here. I have seen some of you on that thread! It seems they are only at deluxe resorts.

In one of your photos there appears to be some one in a kayak. Do they rent those?
