That's why my post said it was "sort of" the downside I felt the same way!

We hadn't stayed there before because we live in Charleston and we felt like it would seem too much like home (you know, southern charm type feel,) but I think that's WHY we loved it. It felt like home and Disney had come together
Confession: I am obsessed with the fireworks on the headboard.

And I totally get what you're saying about home and Disney coming together. We spend summers on the coast and POR is a great place to come home to at the end of the day - the Southern charm and hospitality of home combined with the magic of Disney!

This is probably a strange question but here it goes...


In the showers in the AB rooms, do they still have a pull out clothesline to dry clothes on? I didn't see one in the pics that I have seen, but it is hard to tell. We have always found it so useful to hang bathing suits on to dry so I hope they haven't gotten rid of them. Anyone know?

I can answer this. Yes they do.

Thanks so much! Funny how something as small as a clothesline can make me so happy, LOL!

I do! How was the walk to the parking lot and to the food court/bus stop? I usually book preferred but my girls would love the Royal Rooms!
Glad you had a great trip!

I know there is a microwave in the food court, but I was wondering if there is any other microwaves or would they be ok for us to heat a heating bag in it? or can we get a microwave for our room? My hubby has a fair bit of pain and is on meds but finds a heating bag really helps.

30 Days until our trip and I'm wondering the same thing except for the Royal Rooms. Do they have a clothesline in the shower? I used one a month ago on a room-only stay at a Value... it was so handy!

I always used to be an Alligator Bayou person (as that was the first place we stayed). I couldn't really imagine staying in those big ostentatious mansion buildings instead of our lovely secluded bayou lodges. Until we ended up in a mansion one time (we were planning to ask to switch back to AB the very next day) and found we loved them too. In short, the whole resort is lovely.

They do have a VERY limited quantity of microwaves which you can request for in-room use, or at least they certainly used to.

Yes, it pulls out across the bath.

Yeah, me, too! My husband asked "hey, where did you get that clothesline?"

Like Andre said...the whole resort is awesome. I'm thinking about AB next time. We just stayed in a RR and I'm thinking about AB this next round. Every time we pass them on the bus in the evening, I always think they look so cozy and serene.

In AB section is the area under the bed open or closed off? At CBR, CSR, & POFQ the area is closed so you can't put anything under the bed.

If it is open, how tall (approximately) is the area? I'm wondering if our suitcases would fit under the bed.

Thanks!

I believe all beds in remodeled rooms, which includes all of PO, have the under bed area closed off. This is probably for cleanliness as it makes the rooms much easier to clean properly.

It also helps prevent things from getting kicked under there and left behind
