Anyone have any pictures, or can point me in the right direction, of the Christmas decorations at Riverside and FQ? What are these two resorts like at Christmas?

We're staying at the POR as part of a Grand Gathering. Will they put us in rooms in the same area? Also some rooms consist of 4 people and some of 5. I hope they dont split us up into different parts of the resort based on the number of people in the room. Has anyone had any experience with this?

I'd even pay the extra $15 (or whatever the charge is) a night to have the trundle bed in the room if it would guarantee that we would be close to the rest of the group. It will be so nice to sit and relax with friends/family after the kids go to sleep but if we all spread out we won't be able to do that.

If you all want to stay in the same section then that'd mean Alligator Bayou ideally, have you put that in your room requests? How many rooms have you got booked, and are they linked reservations (apart from your Grand Gathering).

If you want to fax the resort to confirm / reiterate your requests then I'd suggest doing so the number of days ahead that you have rooms booked - i.e. two days before your arrival for two rooms, three days for three rooms, and four days for anything greater. Just ask them for a close area of your choice rather than for adjoining rooms (it's more unlikely that four or five rooms right next door to each other would come up on the same day).

Port Orleans Riverside is my second home - I never get homesick when I'm there, but it does happen the other way around!

No Christmas decorations here, but still loved seeing this in Dec. as opposed to snow.
