Yes I originally wanted POR but no rooms available with my free dining PIN so I had to get 2 rooms at POP. I think we have just decided to stay at POP and spend the extra. It was tough to pull off the extra 1160.00 in less than 5 days but I think we have managed. And I do like the idea of actually being inside Disney and the extra benefit of having 2 rooms is 2 bathrooms and with teenage girls that will come in handy!

However, if it came down to free stay Vs. 2 rooms on property, I would go with free stay.

Staying on site IS very special and I love the WDW transportation, but given your circumstances, I would opt for free stay if POR is not an option.

I would keep calling and checking on different resorts each day since it would end up saving you over a thousand dollars. There are the Port Orleans Riverside rooms, Family Suites, Fort Wilderness Cabins, and lots of deluxe options. It's counter intuitive but sometimes a deluxe resort is less than 2 value rooms. The other issue is that if you do end up with having to do the 2 rooms you need to make sure they know they need to be connecting (door that opens between) because sometimes that is hard to get.

There is also another promotion going on during your time frame. It offers up to 30% off rooms and you can add on the dining plan and tickets. It may be less expensive to stay at POR or maybe even a deluxe with this promo than getting 2 rooms at Pop. Plug in your dates and checkout the prices. I posted the link below. You'll have a great vacation, but I would absolutely stay onsite.
