Too funny that new unders are a "thing* for some. I had to buy new because I've lost weight and the old ones are too big, and I bought DS new because he's getting taller, but I don't think I did it because of the vacation!

I'd be happy to share my "review" or experience at POR now that I'm back, but I can't remember (2 week vacation made my mind melt) if that's something people do in this thread.

I would love to hear about your trip. We are going to POR for the first time in October. We have always stayed at CBR and I am really excited about the change.

The room assigner might be confused by why you want them.... it is better to make requests simple. Like asking for a specific row of numbers; not just one.

Only because I wear gas permeable hard contacts that have to be custom ordered, so they're difficult to replace. So, I choose to wear my oh-so- attractive googles.

I've been following this thread and wanted to introduce myself!
My DH and I will celebrating our 35th anniversary next year (not til Oct), and we're taking our 2 sons, and hopefully by then, fiances to WDW the first week in February 2014.
One of the girls has never been to WDW and the other only once. Can't wait to share in the excitement!!!

I'm taking the plunge and booking tonight for July 20th thru 27th. Flying this time, and skipping Universal so maybe we'll have a slightly more relaxing vacation. Also only one ADR. Sci Fi! We did so many ADR's last time that I'm just not interested. Except for maybe Be Our Guest...Has anyone been there yet? We were there in September and it was mainly construction. No new Fantasyland yet.

P.S. if I book garden view, river view, or pool view, what are the chances of me getting into a Mansion room instead of alligator bayou in Mid July? I really dislike the look of alligator bayou.

I feel ya on the ADRs. Last trip we went ADR Happy and boy did the wallet feel it! This year we took it kinda sparingly only booking the ones we really had to have. Skipping the CP, CRT, and Le Cellier a second time. We had booked that twice last year and decided once this trip was fine. We did make sure to get BOG Dinner in Fantasyland!

One more question....What do you think about a Royal Room for a honeymoon? Too childish? The reason im considering it is because I really like the location of Oak Manor and Parterre Place. They also seem like they'd have the best views of the river. What do you think? Would you book one of these for an adults only trip?
