I've just compared a few sample dates this year vs. next year for POR. While the Standard room types actually don't seem to have changed at all, and Garden View goes up a few dollars, some other types have rocketed. e.g. in peak July, River View goes up from $254 this year to $279 next, and Pool View from $248 to $273 - that's $25 more expensive, or about a 10% increase.

I just checked out May 2014 vs May 2013 (we might run down for a trip before our APs expire). Looks like the garden view Royal Room went up $17 per night in early May. That seemed a bit steep to me for "regular" season (just under 10%). River view (Royal) for that time was about $299 per night (including tax) which really surprised me. (Fingers crossed for a 25% off AP rate!)

Hi Andre,

Just checked portorleans.org, to see if the Resort Activity pdf for August 2013 has been released and found nothing.

Any idea when this will be available?

will be there Aug 5 - 13th and want to plan some time for the movie/bonfire/pool activities.

thanks

I'm not Andre (obviously ) but the schedule probably won't be available until the 30th or 31st of July.

We were considering booking preferred for our 2014 trip. But $50 premium seems crazy especially over a 10 night stay.

Instead employees will be given the authority to question and contact the parents of children who are entering the park alone and appear to be under age 14.
Great advice thank you x

We are going June 2014. Probably June1-9 for 8 nights. Last visit we were in building 18. With the price increases, I am a little hesitant to book preferred again, but we didn't explore the outer areas of the resort so Im not sure exactly how "far" out they are. We are a family of 5 so we will be in the AB for sure. Since walking time is so subjective, has anyone ever measured the mileage from certain points to the main building? Or estimate it? It looks like buildings like 34 are pretty far out but Im just wondering if in actuality its only a quarter of a mile or maybe more?

Thanks for any help!

Sounds like those of us staying soon may be without a refrigerator.

I haven't seen anything like that.

Just asked a few other CMs and they have heard about it. I guess I just missed this.

I'm a TA and received an email from Disney Destinations. It's also on the Disney Travel Agent website. Someone posted on the thread that they called POR and was told that all the refrigerators will be replaced by July 31st.

Hey Andre, I did some comparisons and was very surprised myself looking for another May Trip, in the April/May "season" slot....

When booking in 2013 at POR, we paid a bit of a premium on our King room, but this year that premium seems to have gone CrAzY .....


Most prices on rooms haven't changed from last year during our trip period, standard room is $3 more per weekend night, Weekday is the same.

Garden View is the exact same.

KING rooms, are $18 more per week night and $12 more per weekend night....

2013 POR prices: April/May
Standard 188/213
Garden 200/225
King 215/240

2014 POR Prices: April/May
Standard 188/216
Garden 200/225
King 233/252

Also noticed a similar increase at Other mods, including CBR:

CBR 2013 April/May

Standard 188/213
Water 213/238
King 213/238


CBR 2014 April/May

Standard 188/216 (same increase as POR)
Water 215/240 (tiny increase, $2/day)
King 221/251 (Again, a rather large increase)

Not wanting any of my Dis friends at POR caught off guard.

I will be there before the 31st, so I am glad to be aware of it so I don't plan on loads of food and beverages needing to be kept cool in the room.

Yeah I think I have just been oblivious to it, a lot going on around me at the moment.
