Never stayed in a disney resort (good neighbor hotels only) but booked the Port Orleans Royal room for our 1st World visit after telling the Disney Reservation lady we wanted the "Disney-ist" room possible in our budget. Very excited after seeing all the pictures! We will not be going to the park our first day (april 15) so any reccomendations on activities at or near POR?

I had the strip steak and my fiancé had the same and we're fine. I am sorry I have not been on here more today but its been first priority to her and when she was settled down this morning and resting I went out and snapped the photos and vids real quick. PM me if you have more photo requests and ill see what I can do.

Oh also for future guests... If you or someone in your group is not well, they will cancel your dining and tour ressies on that circumstance alone for no charge on the same day. So if your not well they won't force you to keep your same day reservations.
Food poisoning is horrible had it once in Italy. My girls got the stomach bug on our last night our last trip to WDW and on my youngest 1st birthday to top it off. Not fun to be there and miserable. Hopefully she will be able to sleep it off. At least it isn't summer heat which would really wipe you out. Make sure she doesn't overdo it tomorrow if she feels better, take it slow.

Oh no! It's bad enough to see your little girl sick at home, but on vacation! Sorry to hear. Sounds like she is on the upswing. Hope tomorrow brings a well rested, happy girl!

You could do mini golf at either Winter Summerland or Fantasia Golf Course.
(I believe you get one or two rounds free if you are on the dining plan.)

What linens are on the beds? I know a comforter, as we see them in the pictures (and I assume they are the generic stiff polyester that every hotel uses), and pillows. Can someone list from comforter down and a basic description of the items?

And are extras provided in the room or do we have to call for them?

Oh no!!! I hope the worst is over, and you can all go back to enjoying your vacation.

Under the comforter there is a sheet and fairly thin blanket. They are, well, sheet-like and blanket-like...
