The croaking frogs in the small pools of water. Those frogs are big.

We loved the grounds and the river running through. I thought POR was just lovely.

I love to sit in the gazebo on the mansions side and watch the river.

I also like to walk through the rose garden area near Parterre Place. It's so soothing and the roses are pretty when they are in bloom.

I like that it's comfortable. It's beautiful without being intimidatingly so.

The relaxing atmosphere.. I really feel like I'm in the disney bubble and on a vacation when I'm there!

The Royal Guest Rooms! Our favorite rooms that we've stayed in so far! Just beautiful and the location is great!

The food court.. We love the make your own pasta station.

Giftshop!!! This is where French Quarter is lacking just a bit. POR has a great giftshop.

The boat to DTD. Yee Haw Bob at The River Roost.

Bob Jackson's show!

We also just got to walk around the grounds when we stayed in the royal rooms. Gorgeous little features I've never noticed before on the river side. Take a walk by there at night and you will see what I mean. I love POR. DH and I stay once a month and POR is always our favorite we have been trying a new hotel every so often (bucket list is to stay at every hotel), but for the price and what you get. I love it! Once we stay at every hotel, POR will be our 'home' resort!

Well said Sue, I completely agree with all of the above. I love on the bus ride the soft music that plays. At the end of a long day in the parks with that music on a dark bus is relaxing.

Can I ask...What are the Royal Guest rooms near? We usually get a preferred room, but I love the themes of these rooms.
