As a family of five you could be in 14, 27 or 38 (all of the river-view rooms, even those in the otherwise 'preferred' buildings, come under the River View category). You can request any of those (14 being the best for your wishes). See the floorplans at www.portorleans.org/images/buildingmaps/Floorplan-POR-AlligatorBayou.pdf.

No, not snakes - although to be fair they are not uncommon in Florida (Quick Indiana Jones moment there... "Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?")

90 days until we check in to POR:cool1
We have a preferred room booked for 6/9-6/18. So excited. Anyone else planning to be at POR in June?

Me, me, me! We were going to do Disneyland this year, but our one and only DL trip warped back into a trip to DW! We will be in a preferred room on 5/31, and we will then check into royal room on 6/1-6/10. We are super excited to stay at POR. I think we will really like the theming. Last year when at OKW we went over to POFQ in the mornings for breakfast since it was so close, but we never ventured over to riverside. I am booked using the spring discount, but I am hoping my sister gets a pin! She has received a few over the last year, and we are hoping for free dining.

We are going to go to downtown disney and swim on our day of arrival. We have a 7:00 reservation for Trail's End that evening. We will then do 4 park days, 1 pool day, and then back to the parks for 4 days! We have lots of character meals planned - some that we haven't done in a few years.

We'll be there May 27th-June 5th in a "river view" room. We have requested the mansions. I hope our wish is granted!! We did the new "royal room" last May so I don't feel the need this year.

Can't wait to go!!!

Awesome! Sounds like you have a great trip planned. Looks like we will overlap for a couple of days at POR. I think you will love it! We loved it so much on our last stay that we couldn't make ourselves go anywhere else for this trip. I hope your sister gets a great pin, I have gotten one in the past also, but not yet for this year. I used the spring discount as well and that took off quite a bit so i am happy! We were in Acadian house last time so we booked preferred to make sure that we would be on the AB side, just to switch things up a little. My 7 year old is really looking forward to the murphy bed.

Sorry if the PMs I have sent out were Generic everyone. But I had to do it that way to respond so quickly to all of them.

Stronger spirits are available upon request from behind the counter:


It goes without saying to remember to take ID with you.

Lol Thanks. As for the prices, we're Canadian so I'm pretty sure the price of beer at the resort won't be shocking!!

Buahahaha, Love this.

You could just do what we are going to do (Canadians as well) Either picking up some beer/Vodka in the airport shops past security. OR, ordering through Garden Grocer and having it delivered.

Staying at POR beginning on Mother's Day in May with my family. Our plane lands at 2:15 pm and we are hoping to make it to Epcot that same day. How long does it take, on average, to get to the resort from airport, check-in, and take a bus to the Epcot?

I realize times can vary, just wondering what time I should expect to arive at Epcot so I can plan out the day. I'm hoping we could make it there by 4:30?

Thanks!

If you arrive on time, I think it would be safe to say you'll be there between 3:30 and 4 pm.
