There is a good deal of info regarding the VIP cleaning on the disabilities board.

You can check it out there. People do request it, especially for respiratory ailments.

To help keep her from falling out I recommend sticking a pool noodle underneath the fitted sheet. It helps serve as a bumper. It stays put better than pillows and takes up less space. You can snag one at the dollar store!!

Got back last night from our "Girls" trip!! What a great time! I shared a Royal Room with another lady in our group. The other 2 were in Magnolia Terrace. The Royal Room was everything you would expect......beautiful!!!! The details are amazing!

I haven't stayed at POR for quite awhile. It was huge! The bus transportation was terrible going to the parks. It seemed going back was fine....don't know the reason for that!

The new Fantasyland was open during the time we were there. What a wonderful bonus! The new Under the Sea attraction is awesome from the time you enter until you exit, details were everywhere! I really enjoyed it. Storytime with Belle was good too.....it's definitely more for kids.

Great trip.......ended too soon!

Same here, I would normally be gearing up for my annual week after Thanksgiving trip, but that isn't going to happen this year.

But I am going twice next year, so it more than makes up for it......

But I still cannot wait to walk through those doors and feel like I am home again and be able to share it with a group of people who have never been on a vacation before as a family.

This will be our first time at Riverside. We usually stay at French Quarter. Does Riverside decorate or do anything special during the Halloween season?
Thanks in advance!

First time at POR...curious about the outside movie and the campfire. Are these usually very congested? Would we have to get there well before or right at the starting time? Are you just sitting on the ground for the movie? Would like to check out both of these activities while there!

Yes, there are events at both resorts for Halloween. Not decorated as much as the Magic Kingdom though, it's more activity based stuff.

They are generally not too congested, but it depends a bit on weather, time of year, etc. You sit out on the lawn for the movies (they provide towels to sit on), although there are a couple of benches at the edge of the lawn that you can sit on too. Just turn up, you'll be fine.

We still haven't made up our mind for next August but are strongly considering POR. The only other moderate we've stayed at was CSR which we enjoyed but we'd like to try something new. Is POR just as spread out as CSR? Has anyone stayed at both that can comment? TIA.

It has the advantage that, although it has about the same number of rooms, there isn't a central lake to walk all the way around. Instead there is a river with a landscaped island in the middle (which is where the main swimming pool is located) and there are three bridges crossing over to it, so it's much easier to criss-cross between the different sections of the resort. The maximum walk from the very furthest rooms over to the food court is about 500 yards.

TWICE, HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?!? This past March I tried to get my mom to go and after six months of attempting to talk her into it she was still not wanting to go. I will never understand.

Just posted our deposits today. We are staying at POR in the Royal Guest Rooms next August It will be our second time at POR, but our first time in Magnolia Bend and the princess themed rooms. We are usually POFQ fans, but my little sister missed our 2012 trip, and I let her pick which moderate we'd stay at next year. She insists that 15 isn't too old to love princesses

I'm really looking forward to being so close to Yahaw Bob and the River Roost Lounge.
