I love that you leave so many decisions up to Maddie! Definitely the correct way to take kids to Disney that I often feel is lost on parents lol. I haven't heard or seen too much about the Royal rooms at POR so I can't wait to see your pictures of it and hear how you feel about it.

What I'll miss seeing most are those giant icons and the food court /check in desk/ gift shop area. I was really looking forward to it, but I guess this isn't going to be the trip for it.

In the end we showed Maddie photos of both rooms and left the decision completely up to her.

I'm so glad that you loved your stay there, I can't wait to hear more.

And yes, Disney is Disney no matter where you stay.
Those darn pin codes. The Little Mermaid rooms are way too popular, they'll never have a good discount released for them.

I understand the reasoning. Plus, there's always a next time.

Aw man!!!

I was just going to post that I thought you made a great choice, staying at AOA.. little mermaid room.. than you changed!!

I'm sure you will be very happy with either!!! (although I do think, the younger the child, the more you should go with the over the top decor.) (which is why Nebo loves the value resorts so much! )

as far as the ADR game.. sounds like fun, but we dont' put that much thougth into our own dinner reservations.! (aren't your empty nester friends annoying)

please dont get mad at me... but, for the price difference, i would go with the little mermaid room.

although I have seen the royal room pictures, .. it's like no big deal, to me.. and the resort is still no difference.

but I think maddie would get SUCH a THRILL out of the nemo pool and the LM pool,.,

unless a slide is a big part of her enjoyment, I think the POR theming is not such a big deal, esp. for little kids.l
most of the theming at POR is a lot more laid back.. pretty boring for kids. look again at the pictures

So you announce a resort and about a day later a resort change... So how is this going to affect the ADR point assignments when you start flip flopping ADR's like that???

It's probably a good call to do the Royal Room while she's as into the princesses as she is.

I guess I'll go ahead and throw my list out there...

1. Chef Mickey
2. Ohana
3. Ohana
4. Cinderella's Royal Table
5. Be Our Guest
6. 1900 Park Fare
7. Akershus
8. Via Napoli
9. Tusker House
10. Crystal Palace
11. Yak & Yeti
12. Cape May
13. Whispering Canyon
14. Garden Grill
15. 50's Prime Time
16. Yachtsman

QS
1. Be Our Guest
2. Wolfgang Puck Express
3. Flame Tree

You really need to hit the resort changers saga thread.

Maddie is going to love the Princess rooms and what a better choice for such a princess.
