I think having the table service available plus boat transportation to DTD will be nice.

Thanks so much for the input. We can't wait for our trip!!
We stayed in POR for the first time in January for one night and thought it was a really nice resort.

We use the rooms to 'sleep' - that said, I prefer CSR

* Queen beds (we would not choose a mod without them)
* Multiple bus stops - less walking and less crowd to get on a bus
* Fridge included (instead of having to do a fridge swap or pay for one)
* Pepper market - quick service but a lot better than Denny's quality
* Upgrade from quick to basic dining during FD

Next trip, which we expect not be be during FD (xmas - two prior xmas trips we did included FD but don't think it'll happen this year), I would still consider a mod over a value.

I think you made a good choice with POR! I was going to recommend it because of the relaxing ambiance, bigger rooms and queen sized beds. I also remember the beds being really comfortable. It is true that the food court is busy at breakfast but honestly that would be the only time I remember crowds at POR. Also - POR has the boat to DTD which is a very nice touch.

POR has everything on your list except for the Pepper Market. The food court at POR is really nice.

Just so you know, ALL value rooms now have fridges too. So no need to worry about a swap and no add'l charge for a fridge. Just thought I'd share that with you so you could give accurate info in your post.
