    I was torn between a Disney Fantasy cruise or WDW. After looking at the POR photos for the 321st time I just have to go there!!!! We have stayed at CSR and loved it and Pop (really liked it too), but POR just seems to be beckoning me!! If I have figured it correctly, we can stay June 5 - 13 with a river view room and QSD or DDP for less than the cruise......Just glad to have made the decision!!!

    However, if anyone has any POR photos with garden views I would love to see them.

    Congratulations! I know exactly what you mean! I've been hooked by all the pictures myself and we'll be staying at POR for the first time in May. Can't wait to see it in person!!!:yay:

    Just for the record, I've only looked at the POR picture thread about 315 times, not quite as many as you LOL! ;)

    I think you did the right thing. We just did something similar. I cancelled a cruise on the Dream to give us a full 9 nights at the Yacht Club, club level. We are saving roughly $1,000 too.

    POR is a beautiful resort, and you saved some money, which always feels good.:goodvibes You will love it! Good choice!

    Can I just tell you from experience, that you are going to FALL IN LOVE with POR !!!!:love: I've stayed there 4 times and each time, I've loved it more.

    We have also stayed at CBR and CSR and compared to POR, I didn't care for either. I know people love them, but I just didn't. To me, POR is serene and the surrounding grounds are absolutely beautiful. Make sure that you take the boat to DTD... it's such a peaceful boat ride at night, and really a nice perk of the resort. Boatwrights has great food, as does the food court. (the bakery in the food court is wonderful!!)

    We've always stayed on the mansion side... I stayed on AB side once and didn't care for it much. To me, it kind of felt too rustic and like a tree house. So if that matters, make sure you request which side you'd like. The pool is terrific and there's a great pool bar that makes really good pina coladas! :thumbsup2

    If you are looking for something nice to do at night, you can walk along the river to FQ... it's a really beautiful little walk. There's just NOTHING about POR that I don't love!!!:yay: I hope you enjoy it just as much!!!

    We stayed at POR last year and loved it! I am planning a trip this year and probably staying there for Christmas.
