    I am sooo excited! I finally booked POR for March 18th-25th. I did not think we were going to be able to go this year due to the price of plane tickets (over $2k for a family of 4 :() and the cost of Disney. Then SW released cheaper tickets and Disney released their new promo and my DH said to book it (we will be arriving on his Bday)! This will be a surprise trip for my 4 yo and 7 yo. Trust me it has been hard keeping it a secret! Here is my plan:
    POR - Magnolia Bend - 6 days MYW PH - currently no dining plan but I think we are going to add quick service for the convenience - total cost before plane tickets......$2500 (before dining)! Not bad.....plus we don't rent a car we just use Disney Transportation so we will save money that way.
    Can't wait...it has been almost 2 years!

    We are thinking about staying in a Royal room with a river view. After having stayed at POR quite a few times, I'm having a hard time imagining how good of a view of the river you would actually have. Has anyone stayed river view and think its worth it?

    Hello

    Is there room at all in the royal room to put an air mattress?
    If so where would it fit?
    we stayed in at AOA last time in LM room and my son slept in a pack n play and I felt we had enough room. He is too big for this option now.
    In pics the royal rooms look very small

    Well I kinda like the view. This one was from Oak Manor from memory. Watching the boats and horse-drawn carriages go past in the evening was nice.

    Well you may be able to try, but how many occupants would be in the room? The most the system will allow in the Royal Rooms is four occupants. They Have queen beds in there now so plenty of room.

    We have 2 Royal Guest rooms - just the standard view.

    Yes, I worded it wrong. We have made sure it is linked in the system as requesting connecting rooms.

    Looking at the floorplans that Andre posted, I'm wondering if there actually are any connecting Royal rooms?? Looks like there are 3 pairs that are next to each other but I wonder if they're connecting.

    So excited to be returning to POR! We switched from AOA with the new promo. The last time that DH and I were there was in 97 on our honeymoon! Of course it was called Dixie Landings back then::yes:: we are hoping that we get a room on the AB side, its where we stayed and we still love the looks of that area better than the mansions side...plus then our 2 boys won't have to fight all night to move over! I requested bld 17! :banana:

    Yes they do. We had connecting RGR River View in October, was very nice. One was a corner room so we were able to have dinner and watch the movie out the side window one evening. :goodvibes

    We are here now...absolutely love the resort and having an absolute ball!! I think not making a room request was a bad idea though, lol! I think we may be in THE furthest room from just about everything....like literally in the very back corner of the resort/building. Oh well! I am learning so much as I go along about all this. I just tell myself the mishaps will just help me get it all right next time ;)

    I like that view too! Very nice, thank you for the picture. It sums up a lot of why we love POR! We will be using the military discount so I think the view is worth the small price increase.
