If memory serves, the Alligator Bayou rooms have ceiling fans.

We check in Saturday and i am so excited. Leaving tomorrow for our drive.

Then this morning I have a little freak out and I am in tears. Last years trip to POR was boked very last minute and it was a trip for my family to run away. My brother was killed January 21st and we checked into POR February 26th. We were really running away from life and it was a wonderful trip.

We immediately started planning this years trip. I have 3 children, a DD5, Ds4 and DD23months. My youngest was born with a disability so we were also recovering from that on last years trip. For this trip we had planned to take my father at my childrens request, sadly my car decided to break down and the budget to bring my father went to its repairs. In the long run it was a good thing as in January this year my fathers cancer returned, we almost lost him more than once during that month and he still remains terribly ill. I the mother also have been dealing with some health issues and underwent a radiation treatment in February, and have been terribly ill ever since, dizzy spells, weakness, confusion, body aches etc. I found out just yessterday that the treatment did not work and that is why I am still feeling so terrible.
So now we leave tomorrow to drive to POR. Staying 6 nights and I am so excited yet so scared. My budget for the trip went into a lot of my medical needs so I am coming in with less than I had hoped for, I am so worried about having the energy and ability to make it through the trip but I can not let my children down.
Like I say maybe this is a mini freak out but I just need reassurance that the disney magic will shine in my childrens eyes and bring us through this just as it is supposed to. Any tips or suggestions in regards to my situation would be greatly appreciated as well.

Wait a minute, maybe I'm completely misunderstanding, but does POR have ceiling fans? In all of the rooms except the Royal Rooms?

Our old apartment had ceiling fans, but where we are now - nothing. And I so miss them. If I can get a ceiling fan on vacation, I would be so happy.

I thought maybe it was because the refurb gave them newer stronger ac units. Which my fiancé thought was fine the ac did its job. I miss the fan personally, but whatever, lol.

Both of the above comments: they do in the Alligator Bayou. As for the regular mansion rooms, I do not remember.

Oh my wow you have a lot on your plate right now. I don't know what your budget is but if you want some help you can PM me and I can help you the best I can there. I just don't want everyone to see your things like how much your working with etc. my fiancé is a planner so I can use her advice also if you want me to share it with her? Also we would need to see what kind and when special meals you have reservations for, tours, side trips, etc.

My fiancé is good at planning and can help tremendously. You don't have to but the offer is out there for you.

This is true. All rooms but Royals have ceiling fans. I know AB does for a fact and here is a shot from a new refurb regular mansion room with one.

Is that a pocket door instead of a curtain separating the bedroom from the bathroom? Are the sinks not separate from the tub and toilet? Is there a different room layout pic of the mansion rooms then?

I can't believe I didn't know about ceiling fans. And I'm searching my brain to try and remember if we had a ceiling fan at YC in October. I don't remember there being one, but I could be wrong.

Yeah that is correct, but I posted a pic from a room that has the curtain also and still a fan is there.

It's a handicap room. I had the same type of bathroom at AOA LM. It's one big room with only one sink. Some have shower/tub some only have shower.

Was it a room like this one. If so you can see one there in the room within the first minute.

Yes, but we had a king bed, garden view. I just can't believe I don't remember. Wonder if hubby remembers? I'm going to have to go look at my photos.

Okay forgive me, but where are these rooms exactly? I was thinking of doing Royal, but wasn't in love with the fact that the "closet" was next to the sink. Are there armoires in all of the mansion rooms, if that is what this is? If its AB, I know it's farther away, but I might just be willing to switch from BC to POR.

Ok, I guess we did have a ceiling fan at YC and now it's starting to come back to me that we actually used it too. My memory is really starting to slip lately.

That was a handicap accessible room. I too wish they all had the pocket doors vs the curtain and an armoire. Too bad...
