I think there are others further back in this thread, but here are some pics of a Royal Guest Room and Oak Manor.

Only time will tell.
So there are no King rooms in AB? I was hoping for a king room in building 18 on our trip in December.

Before they upgraded the rooms.... we stayed at AB last year and had a king room.... however it was also a HA room.

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.

Andre
Question. I requested and paid the surcharge for the KING room but I also requested building 18. I realize "requests" are just that.....requests. Does anyone know if building 18 even has King rooms? I am really enjoying your photos Andre and Mike.....what camera/lens are you using to take these beautiful shots?

Yes there are King Rooms in all sections of Port Orleans except for the Royal Guest Room buildings Oak Manor and Parterre Place.

The King Room category effectively 'trumps' all other options, so there are some King Rooms within Preferred Location buildings and even some with River Views (though not in 18, as none of the rooms in 18 are considered River View).

No, there is no boat to Epcot. It is about a 5 minute bus ride away from POR. There is a boat to DTD and that is maybe 15 minutes. And a much nicer ride than the bus.

I'd say MK is the farthest away at about a 17 minute bus ride.

ONLY a 17 minute bus ride? You just made my day. Granted I know there are pick up/drop offs when on a bus but I swear our travel agent said an hour to get from door to door from POR to the MK!


how about to the other parks? thanks again for your help

Yes, the actual ride on the bus is 17 minutes. However, your travel agent has a good point. If you have an ADR at one of the parks, allow an hour from your room to the ADR. Here's how/why getting to and ADR at Crystal Palace MK could take an hour

8:15A - Leave your room
8:20A - Arrive at bus stop just as a bus to MK is pulling away
8:40A - Get on the bus to MK
8:57A - Depart bus
9:07A - Make it through the Main Gate and bag check
9:15A - Arrive at your ADR

And actually, they request you check-in for an ADR 15 mintues before.

I only point this out because friends of ours were very late for an ADR one morning. We had just gotten back from a stay at CBR and they were going the next week. They asked how long the bus ride was to MK. I told them about 20 minutes. Well they didn't tell me they were asking because they had an ADR. The left their room at CBR at 8:20 for an 8:45 ADR at Crystal Palace and didn't get there until 9:15.

Your travel agent might have been giving you some worst case scenario! Or as Dansdad said, trying to get you used to the idea to leave in plenty of time for any dining reservations you have.

The trip from POR to MK (once all stops are picked up and its leaving the resort) is as someone said around 15-20 minutes. I'll add its a very pretty ride, they go the back way by Ft. Wildnerness and in the early evenings, we always see lots of deer. Its not a far ride at all since they do take that back route.

If you drive, this route doesn't work since you bypass the whole parking area. But the busses can take it and it saves time and again, gives a scenic route.

Epcot and DHS are even closer, AK is probably about the same as MK.
