Andre - Thanks for this awesome thread. I'm so excited to stay at this beautiful resort. Many thanks to all of the great picture takers too.

I have booked a garden view room and absolutely love the mansions, but also love convenience. Truth be told, I really would love to stay at a mansion. However, kids also like AB.

So, does it seem reasonable that for a room request (which I of course know how that goes, we're running 50-50 on that), I put on the first line Bldgs. 80 or 85 and on the second line I put Bldgs. 16 or 17.?

Sure - unless they are one of Hagrid's relatives anyway. Height might be a better gauge rather than age though.

Oh yeah. My boys are big for their ages. My 4 going on 5 year old (turns 5 on Halloween) is 46in tall and weighs 44lbs and my 6 going on 7 year old (turns 7 in Dec) is 48in tall and weighs 51lbs. My 4 year old slept on it, but my 6 year old laid on it too and he fit just fine.

I don't think I can post them directly as scrollable images here, so check them out at my POR Panoramas Page. Oh, and there are even extra versions using Apple's Quicktime format too, for all those "Flash-challenged" souls among us (I do wish Apple would stop sticking their head in the sand and get their act together!).

I'm really pleased with the results anyway - next trip I'm going to spend a bit more time out and about around the resort with my tripod I think.

They look great in full screen by the way, just right-click anywhere on the image and select Fullscreen - let me know what you think.

Hey Andre,

Just wanted to say thanks again. I'm re-reading this whole thread as I'm staying at POR for the first time in 5 days. I now have a larger monitor and I still enjoy looking at those! (And your whole website). Thanks again for all your hard work!

We arrive tomorrow and I am hoping for a mansion room too. I like the outside of Alligator Bayou, but not so much the inside. Oh well, I'll be happy no matter what though!

I'll take tons and tons of pictures to post on this thread, don't worry!
