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

Best part? The kids have NO IDEA yet!!! I'm going to keep it a surprise until at least Easter!! Then they will only have a little over a month to wait.

Now I just have to keep my lips zipped and my mind thinking about how I'm going to Surprise them!!
Depending on how old they are you could put clues in plastic eggs and add to the fun of an Easter Egg hunt with the final prize something telling them they are going. For Christmas this year my daughter 10 & nephew 12 got matching presents and opened them together via Skype with a Disney gift card and a note telling them we were returning to POR again this summer. They are now helping with the planing of the trip.

Sorry you couldn't find the website I stream via - a longstanding dispute with TPTB at the DIS years ago ended with it being blocked. As I said, it's all site owner politics, best not to get into it here.

Anyway, the live stream is available via portorlens.org now, so no more issues. I just didn't have time to add the extra code onto the site last night before we left for our meal.

Parterre North Section?

We have a reservation on Feb 22 for 10 days for a River view Royal Room. Many are requesting Oak manor but I was thinking requesting the North section of Parterre (River view) Am I right that I will be close to the bridge and close to the quiet pool ? Should i request first floor or second floor. I have no strollers and we will be up super early.

Thanks for your help. It's our first time at disney for our family of four with 2 girls, ages 7 and 9.

Looking at the map and trying to figure......Is the center section of Acadian House pretty close to the walkway and river or is it set way back?

The Center Section of Acadian House is about 35' back from the river or so. The closest bridge takes you around Ol Man Island and the Main Pool; which is a really nice walk.

Acadian House is my favorite building, since they made Oak Manor into RR's.

I'm trying to get more info about the room safes. Portorleans.org says:

•Small wall-mounted key-lock safe (useful for money, credit cards, documents, keys, phone, iPod, etc — but not big enough for laptops or larger cameras)


However, I thought I read somewhere that they recently changed them to keypad safes when they renovated? In other WDW resorts, the keypad safes I've seen are the ones that are more like a drawer, not a space in the wall. Which is the case at POR? I'm trying to figure out if we can take the laptop Thanks!!
