Although I have been to POR numerous times, I never get tired of looking at photos! It's so beautiful - DH and I are really looking forward to seeing it again in 7 weeks!

Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to share these amazing photos!

River view from Alligator Bayou 14 or 27 is great, or river view from Oak Manor or especially Parterre Place with the water ferries and carriage rides going past at night.

Sorry I did not get back to you sooner, We did not like room 1716 because it was on the first floor and there was more traffic, more people used this walk way, we used it to get to our changed room 1756. 1756 was on the 2nd floor and out of the way, it had a very nice view.

If you would like to be close to the quiet pool and laundry. This would be a great spot. It does have a king size bed.

Were 1716 and 1756 both king beds? And both corner rooms with 2 windows? Are they considered Standard or Water / Preferred View?
Thx

Yes both 1716 and 1756 have king size beds and they are corner rooms. They are considered King size and I do believe that you pay extra for the king size bed.

Thanks everyone for posting these pictures! We leave in a little over 2 weeks, and I can't wait!! Even my husband who isn't really thrilled about this trip (first visit!) thinks that he might have a nice time relaxing at the resort now that he's seen all the pictures!

Grin, how many threads have we seen with messages in like that one?

I'd just make sure that you take the WDW booking line phone number with you, ready for when he asks for it half-way through your stay to book again for next year.
