It's my DS's 10th birthday this year. We have been doing the Mother/Son bday trips since he turned 6. Normally DH skips the trip because of the heat and the amount of time we dedicate to SWW, but since this trip is such a long one, he is flying in on Father's Day to spend the last 4 days with us

I intend to go back and try and read everything here but there are a lot of pages to read. I stayed at POFQ my last stay and really enjoyed it but thought I would try POR in December when my husband and I go on our next trip. I'm a little worried about all of the bus stops there compared to POFQ. I will be in an ECV due to a bad ankle injury that will eventually require surgery so a lot of walking is out. I have read enough to know that I want the Magnolia section for the elevators. Where is the best stop to grab a bus in the morning to head to the parks? That's the one thing that worries me about staying here. I have been in a scooter on past trips and had to wait for a second bus so that's not a big deal, it happens but I had to wait for 4 buses in august at ASMo's and that can be annoying. Thanks for any advice.

I love this thread...what a great job Andre and thanks.

We are planning on 11/30-12/7, 2013. I think our first choice is POFQ beacusew of the size but POR seems to haqve so much more to do.

Anyway we will need 2 or 3 rooms for 3 generations that include me, my Dh, dd and her husband, DS and 2 DGS age 5 and 13. I am mobility challenged and will need a scooter. If we go POR I would think we should get preferred room.

We are hoping for some kind of discount. What are your suggestions??? Please help!

Room Request Sent!

My husband and I leave for POR in 5 days! We will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary, my husband's birthday, and the anticipated birth of our first child. I am doing the happy dance and am so very appreciative of all of the tips, resources, and advice provided by folks on this board.

Just got off the phone with reservations after trying to add my son (18 5 feet 95 pounds so will have no issue with the bed) to the four already on the reservation. The CM told me you can only book five in a room if one of them is five or younger. I have never heard of this, is it true?

Idk about 5yrs and younger. But my son is 8 and we are booked with a POR room and have 5 people in the room. I know I have seen where they have a suggestion of 10 and younger on the site but don't know wether that's mandatory.

Magical Express Report from Feb. 11th

We've been back home for a week from our FL vacation but I've had no time to sit down to write even a small trip report of our 4 nights at POR. I did want to take a moment to let you know that when circumstances are IDEAL the time from your flight landing at MCO until the ME rolls into your resort can be as little as 40 minutes! That is what happened to us this time. We've had other times that it was 90 minutes plus.

Our plane landed at 2:39 pm. Still had to taxi to gate and get off plane from back in row 25. We made a beeline to ME and were directed right through and ushered to a 3/4 full bus so it was ready to roll in about 5 minutes. POR was the first of 4 stops! The others were BWI, BC & YC. ME pulled up to POR at 3:21 PM
