Thanks for all the beautiful pictures!

I'm so glad I found this thread!

I'm in the process of booking a second honeymoon at Port Orleans Riverside for November. We stayed at Dixie Landings for our original honeymoon 13 years ago. This will be our first "getaway" trip since our children were born over 8 years ago...so I can't wait!

These pictures remind me so much of our honeymoon and I can't wait to book this trip!

I just need building suggestions. We were in Alligator Bayou years ago...and I want to do that again, of course, but are there any AB rooms that are near a parking lot? I know it sounds crazy, but we actually need to be close to a parking lot because we are going to a trade show during our trip and have to drive to the Orlando Convention Center for several of the days.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Thank you everybody for posting such great pics! We're going Jan 1, 2009 and I feel I can't wait! POR looks sooo nice! That said, this is our first trip and I think we would be thrilled regardless of the resort.

The only shot I've got uploaded right now!:



Stayed there a few years back, but I recycle the shots in my gallery often and don't have any of those older shots still uploaded. I'll have to dig through and see if I've got any worth reuploading.

Beautiful grounds at Riverside...I need to make a point of going back there with intent to take more scenic photographs!

I'm so glad I found this thread today. We had to switch from POFQ to POR due to AP discount availablitiy, so I've been trying to convince myself that it was a wise decision. This thread has definitely put my mind at ease!!
I do have a question I'm hoping someone can answer. We don't take the buses, but prefer to drive to the parks. Are there parking lots behind each of the different buildings, or will we have to park in one central lot and then possibly have to walk a far distance to our room?

Each section has its own parking lots. You may be farther from your particular room just because it's such a big resort, but not from your building or section. You should be fine.

See my post #439 for the map and it shows parking. Like zackiedawg said, you should be fine.
