Yes they do.



OK, to clarify that: after the current refurbishment program is complete, all of the older double beds will have been replaced with queens. At present, 4 out of the 16 Alligator Bayou buildings are done, with the rest due to be completed between April and August.

By the way, this is a photo thread, the main FAQ thread which will give you lots more info is at: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2851271.

Was wondering if it would be "allowed" for my husband and I to take some pictures in our wedding dress/suit on the grounds at the hotel? Was thinking about the gazebo in the pictures here. :-) We are renewing our vows while we are on vacation in Florida, but not at Disney world. I just think it would make for a few nice pictures to have. :-)

I think it'd be better to get someone to take them for you, kinda misses the point if you take it in turns to hold the camera.

But yes, you'll be fine, and it's a great location for such photos.

I was thinking as I read this it might be worth talking to the photo pass folks to see if they would be able to offer some assistance with this - however I don't know if they take photos at the resort but if they did.....

This quiet pool is in the Alligator Bayou section near building 34. I do have other shots and will have to find them. Thanks for the nice comments!

You are very welcome. You take great shots and would love to see your collection! Thanks for always sharing them They really do get everyone excited--no GPS needed! I think Riverside has the most pools of all the hotels???? Need my pool fix! I think I am the only one in my family concerned with the pool! Definitely a part of my vacation memories as a kid, I guess

My other quiet pool pics are on the other computer but I still owe you those shots. Here are a few more. I hope I haven't already shared these on this thread. I know I did on the other Riverside thread for planning. Anyways...

Any new pictures of the Royal Rooms? I'm staying there in June and would love to see some more pictures and hear the opinions of people who have stayed there.

POR royal room from stay march 23-25 2012

my granddaughter is in these but wasn't thinking in terms of posting when i took them...oops.


a jasmine element at the sink


showing off the interactive headboard. there's a button on the side and the lights twinkle and fireworks shoot off. it's a short play so it's not going 24/7


there's a letter from tiana waiting to welcome you that's part of the table


the t is for tiana and part of the letter shown above but i had to take a pic to tease my granddaughter (who calls me T). i told her it was proof i'm a real princess and they were obviously expecting me


jasmine element of floor...the magic carpet


the pics on the wall in background are of various disney princesses and are done so they look like they've been taken at various points around the resort...like all of us do lol. example one of them on front steps of one of the mansions, a pick at the old man island pool area etc... it incorporated the resort in a really cute way. the bedspread has crowns on it each depicting the different princesses


shower curtain gives a nod to the little mermaid with it's decoration


center of headboard but again had to show granddaughter it was just for me "T"


hidden mickey on the shower curtain


up close of the bedspread showing the evil queen's apple...i'm sure others will argue it represents snow white (sigh)


general pic of room. curtains were blue and gold and gave a royal feel. profile pics of each prince on the wall


cinderellas carriage on the coat rack


throne chairs were cute touch




the stool/bench for putting suitcases etc...on looks like the little foot stool dog from beauty and the beast. the mirror on the wall behind it as well as several elements in the room are the carved wood look like at snow whites adventures in mk.
