Having stayed in both rooms, I would pick the Royal Room hands down. We just got back yesterday and loved everything about it.

Same here (although we won't be staying in the Royal Room until June.) The AOA LM rooms are FAR out, and the resort feels overrun with little ones and teenage groups due to the fact that most of the buildings have suites = room for more little ones. We are a couple without kids, so we prefer the quiet"er" feel of Port Orleans (FQ and Riverside.) Can't wait to see our Royal Room!

You are going to LOVE it! I looked at all of the pictures online of the RR and was still blown away.

We're staying in a RR in June as well. The kids don't know, it's a surprise. I've stayed in that area before the refurb and loved it. It is so relaxing and the themeing is amazing. You won't be sorry if you make the switch.

Based on your ticker it looks like we'll be there at the same time Can't wait! I'm a teacher, and we're leaving the day after school gets out. It'll be a great way to wrap up the school year!

I am also a teacher and we're leaving a couple days after school gets out. Maybe I'll see you down there! We booked a pool view room. Can. Not. Wait!

I am also a teacher and I'm taking my mom who is an 85 year old retired teacher. We will be there June 11-13. She can only handle one park per trip. We go every year after I get out if school and go to a different park each year. We normally stay in a value resort, but I decided it was time to step it up. So this is our first stay at POR. I can't wait!

WDW preview center 1971, WDW 20 times, DL 3 times, Disney Cruise 1 time, DL Paris 1 time, Upcoming: MK, AK & DHS May 1-5, DL & DCA May 27-31, MK June 12

My boys and I stayed at AoA in a Cars suite in Oct. and at POR in Feb. in Magnolia Terrace (not a royal room). We all loved POR. We liked it better than AoA. While AoA is really nice, especially the Cars section, we found POR to be more relaxing and the common areas were much quieter. The kids said that they liked it almost as much as the Poly and it's a lot less expensive than the Poly. We would definitely stay at POR again!

Hello all! We are staying in POR for the first time......looking forward to using the Murphy bed in the Alligator area. I saw somewhere that there is an age/weight limit? Does anyone know what that is? Or what their family member was sized when they tried it?? Thanks!

There's no age or weight limit. It is only 63 inches long though, so you need to take that into consideration.
