Thumbs up Port Orleans Riverside

WOW, GORGEOUS pictures, everyone!!!

Here is a link to my web page with all of my POR pictures, but I'll also post some here: http://www.brownfamilyvacations.com/html/POR2007.htm

The Main Lobby


Looking towards the Check-In area:


Inside the Check-In area:


Some various shots (I have a lot more on my page!):




Pool Bar:


I was there last May which was after the food-court rehab. On my site, I have a lot of pictures of the food court area and of the menus.

We usually stay at the Polynesian but this trip was just one of my girlfriends and I and I'm SO GLAD that I got the opportunity to stay at POR because I thought it was beautiful, very well themed (we stayed in Alligator Bayou and I loved it because it reminded me of my favorite parts of the Magic Kingdom, which is the entire left-hand side of the park!), very clean, very helpful CMs, etc.

I hope that everyone who's planning on staying here has as wonderful of a time that I did!!!

I have friends staying at POR (on my recommendation) this May, and this is a perfect site for them to get familiar with the resort. I just read the tip sheet on room location, awesome job!
Thanks, glad I could help. There's still quite a bit of work to be done, but it's coming together nicely now.

As the above poster mentioned, I've just completed a room location advice page on my www.portorleans.org site, including what I hope should be an easy to read map for working out room locations.

Please let me know if it helps, or if there's anything you think I should add/change.

Have a great stay at my favourite WDW resort.

Only 2 1/2 more years, so hopefully it will go fast! The resort is very peaceful and all these pictures want me to go back even more!!!
I see your kids are young. Why did they like it more then Movies? Is it a bigger room?

Sure does. It gets less attention than the French Quarter one which is a lot more visible, but although most of its run is concealed by the foliage the POR slide is actually twice as long and a bit faster than the POFQ one.
