Many thanks to PizzaMan and Andre for all of these beautiful pics! We are leaving soon for our first stay at POR and I'm beside myself excited! I even put one of these pics as my lock screen pic on my phone so I could look at it multiple times a day! (Pretty bad huh?)

My DH is usually like another lady's on here. Doesn't get excited until right before we leave. This year however he has actually shown more interest! I've still planned everything but he's at least shown a little more enthusiasm!

That one is the quiet pool between Oak Manor (which can be seen in the background) and Parterre Place. Here's another view of it, looking the other way toward Parterre:

Glad to hear your DH is excited about the trip! I hope you have a great time!

I'm really sad that we're going to miss this resort this time around. We thought we had extra friends of my children coming with us so my wife had a friend who got us a steal of a deal at Bonnet Creek. These pics are killing me.

I totally understand, Mike. I'm not sure where we'll be staying in August when we go (flights are SOOO pricey right now, AND no teal for our late August time we can go), but we will not be staying at POR. I know that I will be going back for a walk around, to take some pictures, and to eat the cheesecake!

Where do you plan on staying on that go around? I don't even think I will be able to make it over there to shoot photos this time around. We are on a time crunch and only have 3 days for the WDW part of our trip.

Oh no! I understand! I will head over to POR and take some pictures for you!

At this point we have one night in a LM room at AoA. Then it will be either Pop, All Star Music or maybe CBR. I am all for trying new resorts, because I always love where I stay! POR is just so beautiful though, that I have been telling myself that if we book preferred, then we'll be staying in Alligator Bayou, which is almost like a completely different resort.

Now to get back on the pictures (sorry about heading 1/2 off topic everyone!):

I found a tutorial to make "Fake HDR" pictures, so I tried it out on some of my POR pictures.
