Main pool at POR

I love this thread and am now forever addicted as we are booked to stay there in May. From the looks of this thread I made the right choice.
Does anyone have any photos of the main pool.
I had no problem finding the dragon slide at POFQ and I heard POR has a nice slide as well but I have yet to find a picture of it anywhere.
Anyone?

My DD (now 8) and I now have a tradition that on our first morning at about 5.30 we'll go "moon walking" (her phrase) around POR. It's so still and peaceful and the river is as calm as a millpond. We'll explore the resort, she'll dip her feet in the swimming pool, and we'll watch the dawn arrive as we walk around. It's really lovely.

Then you and your daughter see plenty of bunnies on your walks. I see you took that pic at the quiet pool next to Oak Manor. That's were my wife and I take the kids the last afternoon before we leave so they can swim and we wash clothes. I asked to be in Oak Manor for our stay next week. Can't wait.

Sure can. To save a bit of re-typing though, please see: www.portorleans.org?sub_rec_rentals.htm and www.portorleans.org?sub_rec_recreation.htm

Does anybody have any new pics? I just booked with the 40% code and I am so excited!!

It seems like CBR and CSR are the " Hot Resorts" right now. I guess because of their refurbs....But there has to be some POR lovers out there somewhere......

We loved POR! I would definitely recommend this resort. I am still working on getting my pictures organized...
The "make your own pasta" was great! Pool was fun, surrey bikes were...
interesting with a 9,6,4yo! Though, we laughed the whole time! The kiddos enjoyed the pirate cruise. For our ten night trip, the buses were awesome except one 11 am "ish'' trip to EpCot. Mousekeeping was efficient, kids loved the towel animals
Now to work on the photos...

We have stayed at CSR twice and will never return to CSR. Our last trip was 14 nights at POR and it is now our favorite resort. We prefer it to the POLY.
We have booked it for next year Sept 19- Oct 3, 2009. We will be staying the first 2 nights at the GF and then transferring to POR.

Leaving on Tuesday... Super Psyched

I leave on Tuesday for a girls-only trip. Staying at POR. Even though I have stayed here many times before, I always get excited looking at the pictures. Thank you to all those who have posted on this thread. I can't wait!

I am SO glad I ran across this thread. My DFi and I will be staying at POR for honeymoon and first trip ever to WDW May 17-22 . I had been reading other threads that had me a little nervous about staying here, but after seeing the pics I am getting so excited! Thanks for sharing all the lovely pics of POR.
