Port Orleans royal guest rooms - which building?

We are going to be staying in the royal guest rooms in a few weeks - which building is closer to the main building? I've seen some threads where people request a corner room - whats the difference between a regular room and a corner room? 16 more days, can't wait!!

Check out the map in the link below and you can decide.

If I remember correctly, the corner rooms have another window so more light comes in.

Corner rooms are the same size; they just have a second window, so they appear slightly bigger.

As PP posted the map, you can see the location of the two buildings and choose which one you prefer - Oak Manor or Parterre Place.

Oak Manor is closer to the food court bridge to the main building and Parterre Place is closer to the bridge on the lobby/marina side. I have stayed in both buildings and like each one for different reasons.

I just got back from POR. I had booked a royal room - river view. Did you book Royal Room?

I requested a room close to the bridge which led to the main building with the food court area.
I didn't receive it.

The walk wasn't that bad except late a night when I was exhausted and my knee was killing me.

That would be Oak Manor, which is on the side with the bridge closest to the food court.

We just stayed in Oak Manor. It is a tad closer to the drink refills. Not as close as the preferred AB rooms, but better than many other locations on the property. Also, Oak Manor has the movies in the courtyard, if you have kids who would be interested in that. We enjoyed it.

Enjoy your stay!
