These photos are amazing! I am running in the Princess 1/2 and am staying here Feb. 22-27. I am so so excited! I have a standard room (garden view) booked. Can't wait to see this resort myself. Just gorgeous!

The official POR thread on the resort boards and portorleans.org now has pics of the AB side of the refurb with the new murphy bed.

Miss the old decor/

AB new rooms with Murphy Beds seem to be a mish mash of styles.

Those pics of the refurbbed room are just regular, standard rooms in the mansions? They are beautiful!

Does anyone know if they are all finished?

The refurbs continue until next summer; you can check out the schedule on portorleans.org or the official POR thread under the resorts board.

Lovely picture, Andre! I'll be there in 2 days. Maybe I don't want to visit the Parks. I'll just hang out here!

Can a teenager fit on the trundle? My daughter is 15. She is 4'11. I can't tell from the picture.
