We are here now and it's plenty for the 2 of us. We each used a drawer and then shared one and I laid all our pants in the shelf above the hanging clothes. There are also a few shelves next to the fridge. I was worried about space but we had plenty of room!

Just back from a wonderful stay at POR - we had a great location in Bldg. 14 - 2 connecting rooms, ground floor and a corner room. Everything was great - friendly CMs, loved Bob's show, food was wonderful. Thanks to everyone on this board for the great tips, thanks to Andre for all the information and a special thanks to Venomhatch for the room assistance. Great stay.

So we just got back today from a week at POR. Of course, we had an awesome time at the parks. We got to do the fast pass plus test -the electric parade and wishes viewing areas were great. So, on to the resort.... First, we loved the overall feel of Riverside and our son loved the pool and the slide. The room was very nice (clean and no signs of wear and tear). The only problem in the room was the fridge was not cold at all and the adjustment knobs have been removed. they did get it fixed by the time we returned from the parks, but the leftover pizza from the night before could not be saved - not a biggy. The food at the food court was very good, but we missed the huge grab and go section that was at CBR during our last trip. Our biggest complaint was with mousekeeping. There were mornings when we woke up and my husband would realize that no new coffee had been left. Even though my husband and son were using it, we only received new shampoo and soap every 2nd day or so. I realize that that kind of stuff can happen anywhere and it certainly did not put a damper on our trip. Overall we had a great time and we we happy with our location (Magnolia building, close to bridge, ground floor). Thanks to everyone here for the tips and info about POR!

King Room locations

Excited about coming in February for Princess Half Marathon. IN TRAINING! It will be my first (maybe my only) half Marathon.

It will our first time staying at POR. We usually stay at POFQ. Hoping it will be nice to experience another resort.

I've been looking online for king room locations. Is there a list out there anywhere?

Thanks for your time!

Just got home from a wonderful week! Loved the resort, awesome room location in building 16, great food court, CMs, etc. We don't usually need mouse keeping except maybe midway through our trip but they left a full bag of towels, toiletries, coffee outside our door almost everyday. Biggest complaint was the busses, we only ended up using it for MK a few times otherwise we drove all week and that was fine, more convenient anyway. Just didn't feel like waiting so long to get a full bus from French Quarter and have to stand. Our car was so close to our room so it was nice, and in many cases we walked right in the parks and didn't even need the tram. POR is now my fave of all mods and values, and right up there with our previous fave, WL. DH said he would've loved it more if not for the bus situation, but that I really think is just due to the size of the resort. I miss it already and can't wait to get back!
