She calmed down for the BBB appt but the lip was still quivering. Her fairy godmother in training found out what happened and told the manager of BBB. The manager went to talk to the manager of Cinderella's Round Table Restaurant & the 2 of them set up a time for princess to meet one on one with Cinderella before the restaurant open up for lunch. It was only for like 30 secs but it totally made her day. They knew we were going to 1900 Park Fare for dinner and they told Cinderella this and she whispered in princess ear "I will see you at dinner" time. Unfortunately I didnt have my camera on me ....silly me left it at the resort. I wrote a letter to Disney about the experience and thanking everyone!
This is such a beautiful story you brought a tear to my eye. How did you like 1900 Park Fare?

We have been to WDW many times and only stayed at CSR and CR. Our son has autism and doesn't like change but he saw video of the headboards in the RR and said we have to stay there. We have been wanting to try a new place but you never know how that will go over so we are really excited about staying here but had a few questions.

What all can you refill your mug with. CSR was very limited only a couple of soda options. I like sweet tea and DH likes hot chocolate didn't know if that or juice or anything was an option.

How is the water slide?

Also are the RR in the buildings that has elevators? Are the RR on all floors of the buildings?

Thanks for your help we are so excited about staying here

The Royal Rooms are located in Oak Manor and Parterre Place in the mansions section. They comprise all rooms in those 2 buildings and there are 4 categories to book from- Standard View, Garden View, Water View and River View. There are elevators in a central location in each building.

BTW, my DS has autism too. This will be DS and twin DD's first trip and we are staying in the Royal Rooms.

There are lots of refill choices, including multiple sodas (all Coca Cola products) hot and cold tea and hot chocolate. No juice (I wish they would add apple juice like some other resorts have done!) but there is fruit punch and still lemonade though. There's a full list at http://www.portorleans.org/mugs.php.

The water slide in the main pool is 90 ft long and quite fun, with some turns and very small dip but not too intense.

As has been said, all of the Royal buildings have elevators, but only in the central section of the building. so it could be quite a walk along the walkways from the elevators to one of the furthest rooms.

Sadly not, the maximum occupancy in the Royal Guest Rooms is four people. You could get an Alligator Bayou (non-Royal) room - or two Royal Rooms of course.

We were in an Oak Manor RGR. I have a lot of other pictures of the room, but they are very similar to what the previous poster just shared. If there is anything else you might like to see, just ask and I'll see if I have a picture!
Wow, beautiful photo. I'm getting more and more excited for our trip in September!

We would really rather stay in a princess room....even if we are packed in!!
Thanks for any advice!!
I never saw an answer to this question. I have the same question only I would like to know if there is room for the single air mattress in an AB Garden View room. We are 5 and I'm sure the trundle or the murphy bed would probably be a little small for my kids. We're fine with being a little cramped as long as we all get a good nights sleep.

Thanks.

Just booked my flights for our trip in October. Holy Cow , the flight for our family of 4 costs almost as much as the room and tickets! We could have gotten cheaper flights, but I thought direct would be best since the kids are so young. Oh well, thinking about relaxing by the pool and hanging out in our RGR makes it better

Does anyone know if they sell bottles of rum at POR? My wife and I like to have a mixed drink as we wind down our evening, and the last couple of years we've brought a bottle of rum with us. I noticed at POP last year that they sell bottles in the gift shop. Anyone know if POR does the same? Would be nice to save us from packing one.

I noticed they do sell liquor at the gift shop behind the counter. I just did not look to see what kind they had. I brought my own.
