I've enjoyed the POR info. I'm a WL girl who got an incentive to stay at POR for two nights before transferring to WL for 9 days. SO excited to finally get to experience the holidays at Disney!!!

This is an awesome thread, as we will have to go here now (which I am totally psyched about) instead of BC due to finances.
I am on page 10 only so forgive me if this has been addressed.
Can anyone equate the worst walk here to the main building/pool here to anywhere at CBR or CSR (resorts I know). For example, if we do not get a preferred and end up the farthest away, is it as bad as walking from the Ranchos at CSR to Pepper Market, or is it more like Barbados to OPR at CBR. Just trying to get a feel for what I want to do here. Thanks.

Oh, I've been dying to know this too! I'm familiar with the distances at CBR and CSR and would like a comparison to POR.

We just got back yesterday, and even though we did not go to either the movie or to the campfire - both activities were going on when we were there. The movie was playing at building 90 and I think the campfire was right behind the main pool. There were many activities going on at the pool this time too, and I don't remember this going on in the past. The atmosphere was very fun!

When Disney first revealed October's free dining, we booked POFQ because we had never stayed there and we wanted a renovated room. But, since free dining didn't kick in until October 23rd, we had to make two reservations - a one-night room only for the 22nd, and the remainder with free dining from 23rd-30th.

Now, thanks to the Disboards, I just found out that Disney changed the free dining dates from Oct 23 to Oct 22, so I called to add the 22nd to my existing reservation and cancel my room-only reservation. However, the free dining on the 22nd wasn't available at POFQ, but it was at POR. So we going back to POR instead, with free dining the entire week!!!

Now I need to request a renovated room in either Acadian House or Magnolia Terrace, and we will have the perfect vacation booked. But if we don't get a renovated room, who cares? POR is our favorite resort!!
