That isn't exactly true. The buildings are laid out in a "stair step" fashion. I have stayed in room 6140, which is a king bed room and is on the end of the "stair" on that section of the building, but it isn't a true corner room. It only has 1 window and I know that many true corner rooms have 2. It feels like it is in the middle of the building. I didn't care about having a corner room when I booked...I just wanted a king bed with a river view. But if you're wanting a corner room, you should request one. You may not be happy in room 6140 or other similar king bed rooms.

I would love to know about gluten free offerings....I am assuming they do gluten free chicken nuggets, fries and Mickey waffles as we had those at another resort and in the park. I hope I am right!!! Thanks for looking into the allergy question and have a great trip!

Andre glad you made it ok. Looking forward to some great pics.We'll be there this April. As far as being chilly we just had another 6 inches of snow today in southeastern Massachusetts with a temp of 22F (-5.5C) and 40 mile an hour wind gusts. Have fun!

Port Orleans Riverside Pool View Rooms

Does anyone know what rooms and areas are considered pool view at POR?
We are going to be there April 11th-14th and would like to plan. We stayed there August 2012 in a prefered room but only for 2 nights and didn't really get to see much as we arrived at 10pm on our first night. Can't wait to get there in less than 2 months!!

From the first post on this thread.

For a complete guide to the booking category of every room at the resort, including clickable floorplan layouts of each building, please see the portorleans.org pages for Alligator Bayou, Magnolia Bend, and the Royal Guest Rooms.

When you click on the building on the map at Andre's site, they are color coded.

Thank you this was very helpful.


I noticed they have pizza....does anyone know if they are made fresh (as in they can leave off the cheese) or are they premade?

Thank you!!

If you get a chance could you ask what non dairy alternatives they offer for dessert, asking for a 5 year old. Also if any of them are not chocolate. Also can the pizzas be made without cheese (individual). My 5 yr old is allergic to milk (can eat limited things that have been baked but can't have any cheese, yogurt, butter or milk to drink so no ice cream), but she is also allergic to chocolate, strawberries. Oranges and shellfish. Contact is not an issue for all but the shellfish. We find the non dairy options are usually chocolate or strawberry. If you don't get to ask don't worry about it. Just figured I am trying to prepare what I need to order etc. Do they sell peanut butter or sugar cookies?

I am withholding info about the Royal room so they can be surprised. And the best news is that I measured DD this am and she is 40 inches! So she can ride most of the big ticket rides!
Yay! Have fun! And wonderful news on the 40 inches. My son just hit that for our first trip, and that was a massive relief. He would have been so sad, and not having as many rider switches is great for touring. We are keeping fingers crossed for this trip, as he is almost to 44".

Webcam of our rather lovely room view is up. It's on channel 2 at **********.com. A boat just went past.

[Edit: Darn, gotta love website politics haven't you? I'll put the actual direct feed of my own video stream on portorleans.org later so you can see it, but for now just Google "Eyes Ears webcam"]

It's my favourite treat in all of Walt Disney World

Here's a link to someone who has pictures on their recipe site. They are very rich and decadent but delicious and I plan on abandoning my diet to have one next week
