We are staying in a Royal Room for the first time for our anniv. Does the resort offer anything I could have delivered to the room for husband? In the past I have done the chocolate monorail at the Contemp, a box of chocolates at Wilderness. Something along those lines. The whole cake thing is too crazy for me and Disney Florist doesn't seem to have manly options.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Yes, and ironing boards too.
love this place best breakfeast ever
2 more sleeps
Forecast for here tomorrow is 3-5cm of snow, followed by freezing rain & ice pellets followed by rain. Forecast for Orlando on our arrival day: 82 & sunny
This has only happened to us once in 4 trips at mods. We had a kid bouncing a ball against our wall at midnight, parents yelling at him from the adjoining room to ours. After a half hour I called the desk. They sent security and we never heard them again.
Hi everyone, we are visiting in April and we originally had a Pirate Room at Caribbean Beach reserved but after showing it to the kids not one of them liked it. So after doing much research online my kids picked out one of the rooms in Alligator Bayou. My travel agent booked it for us and put the request in.. my question is how hard is it to get the request you asked for? I have all boys and i know they will not be happy if we end up in a princess type of room.
I'd say that if your only request is for Alligator Bayou, you've got very good odds of getting it since there are twice as many Alligator Bayou rooms as there are non-Royal mansion rooms. You wouldn't get a royal room unless you booked one, since it's a bookable category.
I just booked a Royal Room but we have a 2 and 6 year old and I am concerned about the location. Are the Royal Rooms far from everything? They look close on the map to the food court and enterance but people are saying the location is far. What are your thoughts?
Wee used garden grocier, they were perfect.
The furthest rooms are a bit of a trek, but the closer ones (mostly in Oak Manor) are fine. I posted the walking distances a while ago, but here the info is again:
OK, just for quick-reference purposes, here are the best case / worst case walking distances from ground-floor rooms in the various mansion buildings at POR (as calculated using Google Earth imagery, and taking the best walking routes into account). Oak Manor and Parterre Place are the two Royal Room buildings.
Acadian House > Food Court: 307 yds / 499 yds
Acadian House > South Bus Depot: 482 yds / 674 yds
Acadian House > Ferry Dock: 454 yds / 646 yds
Magnolia Terrace > Food Court: 245 yds / 458 yds
Magnolia Terrace > South Bus Depot: 420 yds / 633 yds
Magnolia Terrace > Ferry Dock: 392 yds / 605 yds
Oak Manor > Food Court: 286 yds / 488 yds
Oak Manor > South Bus Depot: 303 yds / 505 yds
Oak Manor > Ferry Dock: 275 yds / 477 yds
Parterre Place > Food Court: 249 yds / 456 yds
Parterre Place > South Bus Depot: 266 yds / 473 yds
Parterre Place > Ferry Dock: 238 yds / 445 yds
Acadian and Magnolia's shortest distances are walked via Ol Man Island, Oak and Parterre's are via the alternative bridge to the south of the marina. The best-case distances are all from River View rooms, the worst-case distances are from the furthest of the Standard or Garden View rooms.
So, based on an average walking speed of 3mph - and assuming you don't get lost or stop to smell the roses en route - that gives the shortest Magnolia Bend walks to the food court as about 2' 45", and the longest possible ones as 5' 40".
I never post, but read the forums almost every day, and just wanted to pop in to say hi and thank you to everyone who has posted their tips and advice here, especially andre and venom.
I leave on Saturday for my first trip to Disney in almost 15 years. I'm traveling with my 2 and 5 year old kids, my mom and dad, and my sister is meeting us there. We can't wait!
Thanks again to everyone for all the great information. We can't wait to stay at POR!
You will have to add in the conversion to metric LOL
I am in a giddy mood this morning in spite of the weather here. Even all the school buses are cancelled today. And i turned the Keurig on for coffee but forgot to put the cup under!!!! 1 more sleep!!!
Ah, the walking times in metric minutes would be 2.75 minutes and 5.66666666 minutes.
Hope you get some sleep tonight, and your journey doesn't get delayed with the weather.
Have a great time!
Your ARE in a good mood! Have a great trip!
Wow oh wow
Assuming no flight delays, we should be @ POR tomorrow around noon-ish?? So what should we do on our 1st day there? We have dinner rez @ Chef Mickey for 5:15 (we are driving ourselves) so for the afternoon?? Assume hit the pool?
Also have to figure out a way to get to the rooms before DH & the kids so i can put some little gift bags in there for everyone
ETA: also any suggestions post dinner? Yeehaw bob sounds great - just not sure if the kids are too young?
Just popping in to say "Hi" to everyone!
Andre & Venomhatch, you both do a wonderful job at maintaining and assisting people on this thread!
We arrive in just over a month and after reading this thread, I cannot wait! There is a lot of valuable information on here.
Happy Monday, everyone!
I'm relatively new to this thread, but have been reading more and must say: I'm blown away by the amount of detail and information here (like this, as just one example)!
Huge thanks to Andre and Venom and all the other contributors.
My legs are quite short, should I add on extra time for this??
