Can anyone confirm if you still get separate shampoo and conditioner? We are going in September and I'm trying to make my list of what to bring.

We are going July 22-27. Staying at POR. I can let you know if they have separate shampoo and conditioners when we return.

Yes you get separate shampoo & conditioner, please see the FAQ in the first post (in the part entitled "What facilities are in the rooms?").

Thank you all for the replies. It sounds like this may be the first time ever that I don't have to bring shampoo & conditioner for my family. We do not like the combo stuff, so I'm a happy lady now.

Just returned yesterday from POR. We had a wonderful trip. I faxed my requests a week before we arrived and all my requests were honored. We were in bldg 16 which was great. The resort was so wonderful. So relaxing. We tried both the quiet pool and main pool. The kids loved the slide. the only thing we didn't like was Boatwrights. We ate there last year and liked it so we thought we'd go again. The food was good but the service was awful. So next year we will not be dining there again. We plan to go back to December 2014. 18 months away and already starting to plan the next trip.

If you want to be in the mansion section, I would not specify a building. You will either be in Acadian House or Magnolia Terrace and both are wonderful locations.

I would specify a floor preference. We choose first floor, since we have the car this year and wanted quick access to the pool. We are in Magnolia Terrace in 8611, so we are facing the back of the building and have quick access to the car and we are very close to the quiet pool. Wonderful location.

Hi. Not sure if I am doing this right on the DISboards. Thank you for your info. Our Family has been to POR quite often and I agree about Boatwrights. We have a quick serv dining plan with an added reservation at Le Cellier. We are going on July 21-27. Just added a day so we could take advantage of EMH at MK on Sunday.

Are these sections only with king beds?

We've been to POR but always in AB since we were 5, but this trip we might end up only 4, would like it to try a new section!!!

There are King beds in the AB section and the mansion section. The only section without King Beds are the 2 Mansion buildings with Royal Rooms in them.

There are plenty of Non-King bends in the Mansion sections.

There are king beds all over the resort, but in the mansions, they are only in Arcadian House and Magnolia Terrace. Parterre Place and Oak Manor are now in RR's.

Depends entirely on which you want, there are no rules as such. Generally Magnolia Terrace tends to be a bit closer for accessing the main building, but some of the Acadian House rooms are closer than some of the outer Magnolia Terrance ones. There are some King Bed rooms in each building if that's what you have booked. Have a look on the floorplan maps at www.portorleans.org/magnolia-bend.php for some ideas of how the layouts work.
