    had my heart set on OKW but then the offer disappeared so booked POR

    Since then I convinced myself we would be better there as it had a good food court and OKW doesnt seem to have many dining options.

    Now the offer is back should I ring disney and see how much it would be to change ? To OKW or SS ?

    We would have more space at OKW/SS, would go for a studio, if we went for SS the children (7 and 11) would have to share a sofa bed but seems better there for dining ?

    Dont know what to do !! Help me !

    Haven't stayed at POR, but I'd suggest you give Disney a call and find out how much it costs to change. Given OKW/SSR comes with TS DDP as opposed to CS, it shouldn't be all that much to upgrade.
    If you find out the cost then you have more information on which to base your decision. I'd say go for it!

    We have just got back from a stay in a villa and a week at Port orleans french quarter and I have to say that the air conditioning at POR was so nosiy that none of us had a decent nights sleep, and to make it worse it keeps going on and off so disturbs you even more. Also thought the food in the foodcourt was nowhere near the standard it used to be

    Thanks

    It would be £300 cheaper to stay in a studio at OKW/SS as you get the free dining plan whereas at POR you only get the quick service one and i paid to upgrade.

    Just rang and the lady said they still have the old prices so couldnt do anything over the phone. I could book it over the net the cancel my booking for £50 but I think I will wait and see if they have the offer on their systems later on or tomorrow.

    Still wouldnt know which to go for though if i did change !

    I was just going to say it should be cheaper to upgrade but you have rung and found out.:goodvibes

    We stayed at OKW 16 nights this year, didn't eat there once. Its just a little outlet selling fries burgers etc. but we ate at POR 3 times and POFQ 3 times. Food courts are great at both these resorts. If we go back we might eat one meal at Olivias TS but we didn't this year.

    If you have a car its no problem, its only less than 5 mins to POR food courts but without a car OKW is very limited food options.

    Im thinking SSR might suit us better with more dining options than OKW.

    For £130 more than we paid for POR we could get a 1 bed ! 2 rooms, balcony, washer drier, kitchenette etc. Im sure the kids could put up with a sofa bed for 2 weeks they will be so tired they'll sleep anywhere Im sure !

    Just need them to get their prices on the phone now, will try tonight.:)

    I have now booked a 1 bed at SSR

    Did it over the phone, the lady couldnt change my existing booking as when she put it in it was £1000s more so she has rebooked me for no charge.

    Cost me an extra £151 but looks like tonnes more space ( we can get away from the kids a little, yay !)

    Im not changing my mind again !!!!
