Thank you... We have already got it booked as an accessible room, just worried that there might not be an accessible room available at AB since there are so few of them. Wish I could find out which buildings have them. (We also booked standard view, while we would like to be close to the bus stops, its not as big of a deal as the cost to upgrade to preferred is.)

Give that number a call, they normally can request and block-out a specific room in advance for medical reasons, rather than just an "accessible" room.

It's worth trying anyway as there are also a number of rooms in the middle of the mansion buildings (next to the lifts) which are modified for disability access.

Here are a few pictures of POR from last week while we were there. I'm not a very good photographer and don't know how to use my camera properly so bare with me

There a lot of Mousekeeping pictures because we had an awesome Mousekeeper

We were in Bldg 16 room # 1656 it was also a connecting room.



View from balcony. I don't know why I didn't take a picture of the quiet pool which was directly in front of our room




Walking to the Foodcourt. It was about a 5 minute or less walk.




The trundle. I actually slept in in one night and it wasn't too bad!



Our silly Mousekeeper's tricks




The stuffy's were watching T.V. one day when we returned


Pooh made a hammack to watch T.V. :


A line up for the washroom



Star Wars figurine's looking out the window:

In just four days I should be arriving here:





Just thought I'd mention it...


And to celebrate, I've just added 1,500 new photos (such as the ones above) to the Photo Gallery at portorleans.org. I thought I'd better get around to uploading that lot before I come back with a ton more in a couple of weeks! LOL

Just booked our first POR stay tonight after landing a great deal with free dining, so great in fact that it turned out to be cheaper than the fabulous off-site deal we'd previously booked. Love seeing all of the pics - thanks so much for sharing!

Question for you all... where is the best place to stay for a family with two young children (5 and 7), that has fairly good access to the Sassagoula Steamboat Company but is also reasonably quiet? We'll have a car with us... I'm assuming parking is accessible from all areas, correct? We won't need access to the public transportation... plan on driving for the most part (which we learned we prefer over the last two trips), except for the occasional boat ride to Downtown Disney.

Thanks in advance for the help...

Might be worth checking out the main FAQ thread for Riverside. There's lots of info in the first post which might help you, including a map.

louisiannatigger I'll be there with my family the same time! We're going 11/28-12/5! I can't believe it's only 4 weeks away, and seeing these pics are definitely helping to kill the time, but adding to the excitement too! We were there in April 2008 and I just can't wait to get there again!!
