My wife and I stayed at POR a very long time ago and liked it very much,which makes me think we should go there again BUT this time we are traveling w/ three children. Where would you stay? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Just wanted to make sure those are the resorts that still have free dining available??? I would hate for you to have your heart set on a place only to find out that free dining was not available.

Room square footage wise, Poly is the largest followed by Beach Club and Boardwalk and finally POR.

Lol...

Have you considered getting two connecting rooms at a Value??? Disney does not guarantee this, but the chances are very high that they will. Just do not ask for adjoining-in Disney language that means rooms that are near each other. Connecting has an interior door between the rooms. Just a thought; not sure how old your kids are.

For us, having 2 bathrooms is a big thing!

I was originally scheduled for Dec 6-11 at POFQ at rack rate, but yesterday ended up switching to Nov 22-29 at Pop because I was able to snag the free dining promo! Paying about the same amount as before, but getting two extra days and free dining out of the deal. Can't beat that!!! Looks like it will be a happy Thanksgiving holiday this year!

POR does have some rooms (in AB section) that sleep 5. Still, if I could afford to stay in a deluxe resort, I would - at least once!

We got a RO for that night, but it would be so much more of a deal to get FD since POR only gets 5% off.
I bet it will open up as people's deadlines come up to pay. Spreading pixie dust your way! :-)

Hi JDSNY. Welcome out of lurkville. Lol. What ages are your kids. I have never stayed in property at all so I am only going off info from all the threads and not personal experience. I love the resort threads.

Do you like to be closer to MK or Epcot area? We are staying at BC because my kids are a little older and we love HS and Epcot. And the pool looks great.

I also agree with Pluto to make sure there is still FD available at these resorts.

Good luck!
