We just got back from out stay at PORFQ and I walked around both French Quarter and Riverside and took lots of random pictures. I just posted them on Photobucket under the name astraltravel. Not sure how you access but go there and see if you can see all the pictures I took. Both PORs are gorgeous resorts. Like living in a garden. Let me know.

Thanks RNDMR!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures!! We are planning to visit the mouse and the world next April. Being a family a 5 we will be "forced" to stay at PORS for the Mod resorts... I am totally good with that... Now!! The resort looks great and very fun and festive. I cant wait. If only the August rates would leak out, I'd be happy! But what the hay - thats why we all are here on the boards... to live vicariously through others and plan til our heart's content! Ok, maybe that's just me!?

We'll be there from july 18-25...maybe we'll see some of you there!!
Wow! I can't wait to be at POR in August it looks like an amazing resort!!

Booked Late Sept for Free Dining!

Well, I did it! I booked the PORS for a week in late Spetmeber. We dont normally vacation that early in the year, but the Free Dining promo was too hard to pass up! I am hoping they will extend the free dining into late October like last year, so I can change my ressies but we will see. Late october would be better by far, but the HUGE savings is soo worth it!

I love POR! It doesn't matter to me that it is large. You will walk all day anyways.....a few extra steps will not hurt me.

Counting down!

Great pics everyone!

Wish me some pixie dust! My husband said if his July bonus is enough money we can book free dining at POR!!!! We haven't been to POR since 2007 and I would LOVE to stay there again!
