You can go to any park to transfer to another resort.

Sounds like your having a great time despite the accessible room. I would have asked to be moved. I actually switched our booking from Coronado because we need the double vanity. It's hard for us to get ready with just one sink although we did try it once. Lol, it was crazy.

I quoted someone but my its not there....hmmmm....

Not in the accessible rooms; not enough room with the water closet and roll-in shower configuration.

I can't tell you how happy reading this thread has made me. I've been going to the World since I was a kid, and am now taking my kids for the second time. This will be my first time EVER staying on site and I can't wait. I did lots of reading and ended up deciding on POR. Then I found this lovely site after, and reading this makes me think I made an awesome decision.

This will be my husband's first Disney trip. Sounds like while having lots of charm POR won't be over the top, or in the face "Disney", which could be a good thing.

Thanks again for all the great information you all have provided for those of us who are first timers!!

Can't wait...POR May 15th-22nd!!!

We checked in on Saturday and we love it here! There are zero complaints about my experience so far. The room was spotless and has been well maintained, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the overall atmosphere surrounding the resort is something else! I don't know how we will justify staying anywhere else on our future trips. Thanks for all the tips from the board and thanks again for the extra help from Venom. This has been a great vacation so far!

I am so jealous. I would normally be there this week, but my mom and I went on a cruise this year.

Saturday, I missed the first night of Yee-hah Bob's Christmas show, and Todd, Holly, and John in the lounge. I wondered what room I would be in. Acadian House. I wondered where did the year go; has it really been one year already? Then I saw the weather all week compared to here.

Luckily, I am going twice next year.

Well two weeks before your arrival is a bit early for all that to be honest (I'd suggest 3-5 days normally) but I guess next you make yourself a nice relaxing drink and look forward to checking in at the hotel soon!
