My thoughts exactly.

Sorry you didn't like it. We are staying there for the first time in Feb.

Just curious, did you book "garden view" or different one?

I think that people, myself included, read the "tone" of your post and got "up in arms" so-to-speak. And then the past posts were brought up, and it just made it worse.

You are absolutely right, you don't have to like it...we all have different likes, etc. Some of the problems could have been solved by some more research, and some by the website not having the post-refurb descriptions up for so long.

Anyway, try to enjoy the rest of your trip and enjoy AKV.

Well said! I cannot believe how people just jumped on this 18 yr old and started to pick everything apart. I guess it's nice to have enough downtime to go through and read every single post/thread someone has written to see if their current post is real or make believe, but really? No offense to those who did that, but why bother? Are there really that many "trolls" on this board?

I would also like to stick up for this person as it's quite obvious they do not like being called kiddo. Just because you call your kid kiddo doesn't mean you should continue to call this person kiddo after expressing the dislike for the term..it's rude and disrespectful.

For me, I cannot stand when people will call me honey (when it's done in a condescending way) and it bugs the daylights out of me. Instead of picking on eachother, being mean and trying to turn everyone without thousands of posts into a troll or someone trying to create an uproar, let's try to get along

Did you talk to the front desk about it? Wondering what their response is....

Fair enough. But just to be clear, I don't think people cared that you didn't like it - I think the problem they had was that you didn't like it for all the wrong reasons. Things you had complaints about were not any fault of POR's and would be experienced at the other resorts as well, so your review of POR was a little "unfair" so to speak.

That's all!

Exactly.

I have no problem with complaints, have made a fair number of them myself. But most if not all of the OP's complaints were not valid, and would have been avoided with a little research, or in the case of the hot-tub, by asking a CM.

Don't want to get in the middle but found it funny that when I saw my mom today she called me Kidd... and I'm close to doubling his age.
