Just spent 3 nights at POR in a Royal Room and loved it! The CMs were fantastic, food court was good, bus service was super, and Yeeha Bob was awesome!! My daughter had a blast with all of the pool activities. Our room was standard but we were in Oak Manor 9422 and I thought it had a great view. It was very clean and our mousekeeper left us the cutest things.
We are DVC owners and stayed here so my DD6 could enjoy the Royal Room. It was totally worth it!
Got our mickey mail on Thursday! 29 days to go. Now that my DD's surgery is over today, can breathe again. A lot of things to do to get ready.
They didn't send enough ME tags. I assume it is no problem to call and request more. We had requested 2 each before they were sent but they only gave 1 each. Not sure we willbring 2 each but free bags so want to have the option.
Hi - I can't answer your question since I have never been! But, wanted to add we will be at POR the end of May too! Also, turning 40! Yayyyyy!
Yay, we booked today! Going in October and since I'm running the TOT 10miler I got to book through the rundisney people and got a lovely rate. Can't beat that!
Just a standard room this time so I'll have to review Andre's site since last time we were in a royal room!
And it's 5 nights instead of the much shorter stay pre-cruise. It's all very very good.
I have tried to look on several sites including Portorleans.org and still can not find a map with the designated smoking areas. I understand others do not smoke but we do, we have went to electronic cigarettes but still want to be in the right area. Which building in the preferred area is the closest to a smoking area?
Just checked in around 5pm today. I had requested Magnolia Bend, but our room is in Bldg 24 of AB. The woman checking us in tried to see if there were any MB rooms available, but there weren't.
That being said, we are actually fine with the room. It is very close to the West bust depot, and the building has its own quiet pool. DH loves the trundle bed, even though we can't use it (just the two of us). Our view truly is standard (parking lot), but that never mattered to us anyway. Overall, we are happy with the atmosphere at POR, and no rain yet!

I had wonderful luck with our room request, we got everything we wanted! HUGE thanks to Andre, Venom Hatch and everyone else whose advice was so invaluable! Cannot wait to arrive at POR next week!
I'm just curious how you know you were granted all your requests if you haven't checked in yet? Did you get an email confirmation?
yes, I got an email confirmation.
That's great to know! I didn't realize they sent a confirmation.
I'm not sure that they always do, it was an unexpected bonus!
the dsa's are not on this map, I already checked
Did you open the PFD map? They are on there blue circle with a line or something going straight across. It looks like their is a DSA by each pool, different spots on the "walking/running" loop, 3-4 areas by the main building.
Hope that helps.
You need to click on either of the top two .pdf maps.
Yes they are, but not on the simplified display version I use on the page, you'll need to view the fullly detailed scalable PDF version from the links (www.portorleans.org/images/Port%20Orleans%20Map.pdf)
Thank you so much found them, sorry
We are booked in a Royal Room with a river view. Does the 2nd or 3rd floor, in your opinion, have the better view?
