Pictures are fantastic, question how often do they do the fire pit with the toasting marshmallows, my kids would love this.

Every night, all year round. Times vary a bit seasonally (see the monthly recreation schedules for details).

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Beautiful pictures Andre, thanks so much for sharing them with us. I'm so excited to be staying here for the first time next trip.
Andre if it isn't too much trouble can you please tell me what building is shown in picture #50? I'm assuming that is the food court next door to it.

Thanks!

Carla

Yes, I took that photo to show just how close you can actually be to the food court door at French Quarter - literally 20 yards. It's building 4, and the first corner room you can see on the ground floor there is 4127.

Sorry Andre I forgot to ask...

Does the walkway in the picture continue out front to the bus stop?

Thanks!

Yes, it does. It might just be quicker to walk indoors through the food court and lobby from there though - certainly cooler!

I'm hearing that the first supplies of new fridges have started to arrive, and that swap-outs are occurring already. I still don't know how long it will take to complete, but it's encouraging news nonetheless.

I have a question- right now we are booked for a garden room. Trying to figure out buildings if anyone can help. As ur coming out of ole port royale and walking towards the pool- looking at the pool the buildings that are in the right and left of the pool- I'd like to request on of those buildings facing the pool- anyone know what buildings they are and what category they fall into? Would it be pool view? I know we want ground floor and reading it said pool view was a top floor.

Buildings 2 & 5 face the pool. All the buildings have garden view rooms I believe. We had a garden view in #3 that was close to the pool and food court. We have been in every building except for 1 & 7 and they were all close to everything even the riverview ones.
Andre's website has the map of the buildings
