I just looked at a new updated dinner menu for Boatwright's and I'm sad to say it doesn't excite me too much. I had planned on eating there our first resort night then catching the Yeeha Bob show. I think I may have to find an alternative but still be back in time for Bob. Any suggestions from the menu to change my mind?

Refurbished Rooms

If I am not mistaken, I believe rooms are still being refurbished in the AB section. For the Magnolia Bend section, have all the rooms in magnolia terrace been refurbished or is there a chance I will get one that has not yet?

Thanks a bunch

No worries, it wasn't your fault, and thanks for doing that. It took over 15 minutes just to create four empty placeholder posts at the start of this thread, never mind editing anything into them - I was getting seriously ratty by the end! I can't wait for the new 'miracle servers' that the DIS should be moving to in the next month or so.

Three months! How did we all manage to fill 250 pages in just three months?!

It was the whole RR opening fiasco and ensuing panic.

Thanks to Andre for your work here and the website. It has been very helpful to me. I am only spending one night a WDW before my cruise on the Fantasy but I wanted to make it count (a real resort experience.) POR looks like it's just what I was looking for to spend a relaxed afternoon/evening before the cruise. We have 2 Garden View rooms booked (family of 6, would have gone with standard but the Summer Discount wasn't available.) Keep up the good work!

We are booked to be there next week and I am fearful of overbooking!

We arrive on Sunday and have a RR Garden view. I believe we would have heard if there was an issue. Fingers crossed!

Our new home looks great Andre I love this new fresh thread smell!

I am wondering why you have a picture titled "Existing Magnolia Bend mansion building room" I thought that the mansions are all done except for Parterre Pl. and that one is now closed for refurbs. Also do you plan to add a photo on page one of a refurbished AB room?

Once again thanks for all you do!
