I apologize, I haven't read through all 30 pages. Are there any photos of king rooms at POR? And do they have kings in both AB and mansions?

[QUOTE=Flametamr;23379504]I'll contribute a couple of pics cause I like them but hated the resort. Just curious why you need to get excited when this will be your third time at POR ???

Hi
thinking of an Oct trip and have only stayed at the CBR (first time)
why did you hate the resort??

we are a family of three and are thinking that the boat to DTD etc will give us a completely different experience

curious to know

thanks

The boat goes to POFQ and DTD only. It is a bus to everything else. I have read the boat is a beautiful ride. Check out portorleans.org

I know this has been discussed but I am wondering- are there specific pros and cons between the mansions vs the other rooms? I understand its personal preference but there have to be some differences

seems like the other rooms are more rustic vs elegant in the mansions not sure either one is more less appealing to us, my 8 yr old DD thinks the word MANSION is clearly indicitive of a better time but what would we be giving up and what would make it that much better?

also- if you request mansion is it guareenteed?

thanks all

can't wait to come back!!

Everytime I book a trip to WDW I think I am going to try another resort and then it's just impossible. The one thing that really makes a difference for us is the quiet. It's just so quiet and I know the resort is full.

The other thing is the boat ride to DTD. What a way to travel. So very relaxing, something new to see with every ride.

In the AB section, on the second floor, I always feel like we are in a treehouse. So lush and green.

In January I booked POFQ I hope it is equally as beautiful.

This was our room 1756, and as you can see there is a king size bed.


This is room 1716 and it had a king size bed, but we did not like the location.

Por

Thanks everyone for the great pictures and info! We'll be staying at POR in November. Has anyone stayed during the middle of November? I am slightly worried about how cool the weather will be. Was last in WDW about 6 years ago in April and the weather was unseasonably cool then - froze to death at Typhoon Lagoon

Can't wait to get to POR!

I was wondering if anyone can tell me which buildings the handicapped rooms are in? I have one reserved with a roll in shower. Thanks for all the wonderful info and photos.

P.S. We are going Oct. 18-25

What was it about the location that you did not like? We requested a manor as it is our anniversary but you never know what you are going to get.

Nov. weather is beautiful during the day, but you will most likely need a sweater and jeans for the evening. Last year, mid Nov. we had great weather all week and then a cold front moved in the morning we were leaving, it was FREEZING! So you just never know?!
