I have stayed in BLGD 1 which is by the riverside of the resort. It is very quiet there. We were on the third floor.

Thanks for posting!

How are the crowds? Weather? Can't wait - we're going to be there in just 5 days!

I assume you are on a laptop computer? Is the plug in between the two beds or over by the round table (near the window)? Just curious as I'll be bringing my laptop as well!

Thanks for the update!

All Disney resorts have been non-smoking for nearly two years now, I rather doubt there will be any smells lingering now. Other than from any recent inconsiderate guests, of course - although Disney reserves the right to charge them a $250-$500 "room recovery" fee.

Hi!
We are facing the courtyard. I am happy for that. Very pretty view and quiet. Weather is perfect during the days, but a bit chilly by 8pm. I bought a Mickey hoodie yesterday, and DD has been wearing her sweater. No rain expected until Monday, and even then just 30% chance. 80 degrees and sunny so far.
My internet is on the table, not nightstand.
As for crowds, mornings are PERFECT, by 10 am crowds are getting bigger. We were at MK until late last night. Tons of Grads for Grad nights but dtill a walk onto Pirates and Stitch at 11pm.

Need to get some coffee- and beignets!!!
I'll look for my fellow Diser. Got my LGMH!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip! How are the crowds? Thinning out - I hope!!!

I'm very senstitive to extraneous noise and would like to try and avoid it if at all possible (i.e. away from pool, walkways, food court etc.)

Thanks!
We are back. Left early this morning. As for the the connection it is near the table and I was on my mom's HP laptop that did not fit in the wall safe. She just left it on the table the whole time and it was fine.

We were in Bldg 3 second floor and facing the walkway to the Main bldg and except for my crying DS1 at night it was pretty quiet. Actually the whole resort for being a busy week was so quiet and peaceful. Unlike the parks that were mobbed with people We actually took advantage of the early morning hours to MK.

It looks like the only place at Port Orleans area is Boatwrights.
Unfortunately, Boatwrights is no longer open for breakfast. I would assume then that morning coffee is not available, right?

We will be there the very end of may- specifically May 27-June 3rd to celebrate my daugther's 3rd birthday. We are getting SOOOOO excited!! When will you be there? If you only have 33 days, it doesn't seem that we'll be there at the same time.
