We were in Bldg 34 and were near the first bus stop. I thought the walk wasn't all that far from the food court area. And we were close to one of the neighborhood pools. I like POR-AB.

we stayed at POR AB building #36 last summer and we LOVED it! My boys loved AB! Its very boyish! I think a little boy could see it as western themed. You will love it Im sure!

I have been in bldg 14, ground floor, looking at the back of the food court bldg...CM told me that if we were any closer to the main bldgs, we would be CMs...great location. Also in bldg 36, ground floor, facing a quiet pool, fairly close to the West Depot bus stop and that took about 10-12 mins to get to the food court. Then, there was the Mansion section, in bldg 85, second floor, with a water view...yeah, if you left your room and hung over the railing you could sort of see the river!!!
I really do prefer the AB section. I really enjoyed both our AB stays, even if the walk was a bit on the long side from 36!!

I don't think it's so much a western feel as it is rustic. Kind of like if you lived in the midst of Splash Mt!!

I've stayed in building 25 a couple of times. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the main building. I liked the walk though, especially early in the morning.

Going next week & staying in AB preferred room. We like the AB section better than Mansions. Love the boat ride to DTD & hope to do a carriage ride this visit.
