    Very cool, we were there in January. It was our first stay at the resort and we had a great stay. If you can swing it I recommend taking the carriage ride. DW and I did it and we had a nice time.

    Congrats! POR is our fav moderate resort. Be sure to take some time to stroll around and enjoy the beautiful landscaping.
    Bob Jackson puts on a fun show in the lounge. All ages love it. The Make your own pasta in the food court is a big hit with us.
    Have you made all your ADRs yet?

    You will love it there. Are you staying in mansions or bayou? We always stayed in bayou but last year we stayed in the mansions to get the refurbed rooms and now we like both! Have a great time.

    I can't wait to see it, and even though it will be February we'll be swimming every day if the kids have anything to do with it!

    I made 4 of our 6 table service ADR's today - Biergarten dinner, 1900 Park Fare character dinner, Akershus princess dinner and Tusker House character lunch. I'm having a problem filling the other 2 with somewhere we'd really like to eat. Be Our Guest is booked, as to be expected, as was Chef Mickey's and 'Ohana. Any suggestions for the other 2? My kids are 7 (boy), 5(girl) and 4(boy).

    Yay!! POR was our first on site resort too!! Love all the things mentioned, and the kids loved being able to swim in the pool at Riverside AND at French Quarter. I have not come across the make your own pasta anywhere else that compares to the counter service at POR! Have fun!

    We will be at POR in February also. We love it there! As for your ADR's keep trying. I managed to snag an O'hana finally and am hoping fate will smile for Be Our Guest. Have a wonderful trip.

    We were at POR in March and LOVED IT!!! It was like a vacation in a vacation. I agree keep trying for the ADR's , also I dont know if you are calling for help with the ADR's but try that.

    Do you think I'd have better luck with the reservation phone line? I've just been checking online.

    That can depend on the restaurant. For example T-Rex is not owned by Disney so they only provide disney with a number of reservations. I was able to get one through the restaurant when nothing was available online.
