    Yay count me in :banana:....I love your trip report so far. We are going to be staying at POR in September for FD but we upgraded to DxDDP and cannot wait. This will be our second time staying here and it is by far one of my favorite resorts. We were just there in March and stayed at POFQ, my DH loves that resort because of the size. Can't wait to read more of your report :goodvibes

    Soo... I found some more pics of the pool on my phone!!! Yay!! Have to post these!! I love the main pool with the slide.. get there early for a chair, or on the weekday, it seemed easier to find a place.

    That's my baby going down the slide!!:thumbsup2

    Love your pics! We love POR but are finally thinking of buying DVC so we are renting to points this time to try it out and staying at BWV but I know I will miss POR!

    Thanks for the suggestion of Wolfgang's. I have not been there before and will make a note to try it this time after seeing your pics!

    I gotta tell yall about a freak accident that happened to Lexi at Magic Kingdom:sad2:

    She fell into the concrete of a water fountain and hit soo hard. We rushed her to First Aid at the front of the park. The nurse was wonderful. She took her into and out of light, and really cared for her!!! I guess that even accidents happen at the Happiest Place on Earth!!! At first she wanted to leave but DH bought her some ice cream, and rested for awhile, and she was ready to go again!! Now that's how u keep a kid awake. Bring them to Magic Kingdom!!:dance3:

    Hi
    I love your trip report. Your DD's head looks so sore!! Poor little girl!! Both your kids are so cute. Could you tell me a where the dancing is at DTD? I've never been there at night, and it looks like a lot of fun. My DGD would love it.
    Thanks

    I remember back in the day when Pleasure Island would have "New Year's Eve" party every night like on the hour every hour. This sounds similar.

    Your poor baby! That bump looks so painful. I hope it didn't hurt her for long. Is the Disney Store at the outlet good? Do they have very many costumes or clothes for kids?

    Ooo Sorry I meant my fave store at my homeplace Outlet Mall. I didn't go in the one there... really didn't see it, but maybe I just missed it. If u are driving.. I like going to the Wal-Mart near Disney and getting clothes. All kinds of Disney souvie's and such! Last year we did go to a Disney Outlet store on a main Rd. I gotta look up where it was... I can't remember!!


    Ok.. so here is some info. I remember seeing it now. This was at the end of our trip!! $800 worth of Disney merchandise spent at Disney World... so did not need to go in there!! lol

    Thanks so much for the great review. The pool looks awesome. DD asked if we could stay here. It would save me around 800.00 so since we are doing the QSDP I may consider it. I love WGP. Going to sleep on it.

    Did you do any character dining at all ? We have 2 that we will keep since I'm not a big fan of waiting in line for characters.

    I just found your TR. We were at POR May 22-28. I swear I see my DH and DD in one of your pool pics but they are a little small to be 100% sure.

    We loved POR but we also stayed in a 2 bedroom unit at Lake Buena Vista Resort May 28-June 1 and it was so nice to have some extra space.

    Looking foward to more.
