trying to squeeze a night to see bob @ the lounge. Can you just hang out and watch him as a family or do you have eat dinner there? Trying to probably do too much but heard such great things about his show that I'd hate to miss it!

Howdy! We just returned from a stay at POP and have booked a bounceback for a Sept 2013 stay at POR. I am so excited!! I have been browsing this thread today and I just wanted to say a quick thank you to all--it has been so helpful! We stayed at POR back in 2003 and enjoyed our stay. We were a family of 5 back then and we are now a family of 7, so 2 connecting rooms for us! I can't wait to be back.

That would be the only way to guarantee it, yes. But if you book another category you could then request an Alligator Bayou room as close as possible to the main building and at that time of year you would more than likely get what you want - but do remember that requests are never guaranteed.

Easily, it's a lounge/bar not a restaurant, just turn up. You can get a few snacks there, or bring items over from the nearby food court. It would be polite to order some drinks from the servers of course, but even that is not essential.

Thank you~! Since there are not many preferred rooms I am assuming they will not be discounted should a general public discount come out so I'm trying to figure out all my options and scenarios so I am ready if and when that discount becomes available!

Previous Discounts

What have the previous spring discounts been for POR? I see on portorleans.org that last year was 20% off but does anyone remember if that was off of all room categories or just certain ones?

POR Yehah Bob

We loved him. People seemed to have a great time. We happened upon him one evening. They make killer Bloody Mary's in the lounge, btw! Their pub grub is pretty good, too. I think we had some mozzarella stix and potato skins.

Of course, I'm arriving on a Tuesday - I had hoped to see Bob, but he's not on!

Anything else going on in the evenings at POR or POFQ? Since it's January, the parks all close at 8 PM or earlier. I'd love to have some entertainment to keep me occupied & out of trouble!

Do you fancy a horse-drawn carriage ride, they run until around 9pm. Otherwise it's only a short boat or bus ride to Downtown Disney (maybe boat there and bus back if you'll be returning after 11pm?)

leaving DPOR

Hi everyone,
We are leaving tomorrow after 10 amazing days here at port orleans riverside. It has been fantastic! However we have some things we wont be taking home we would love to pass on if anyone could use them. We have a toaster, a loaf of bread unopened, a case of pop (half diet coke half diet with lime) half a case of dasani water, a half a tank of balloon hellium and balloons (long story and a 6th birthday). We also have things like pb and jam and apples if anyone is interested (these have been opened).

Please let me know asap as we leave early tmo, and I will send you my room number, we are in oak manor.

I usually leave those kinds of things for mousekeeping. At least I hope they can use it.
