    We'll be there also then Dec 12-16 a short trip for my B-day! Just booked and can't wait. This is our first time also without reserving a car which is going to be interesting. :confused::cutie: My DH and I haven't been there since it was Dixie Landings. :scared1: Can anyone suggest a good building to request or room? We do have standard rooms reserved. Thanks all! Any other suggestions of things to do there, etc., let us know. Only myself and DH, looking for a nice romantic trip. Oh and we'll be in the AB section which myself and DH really love. I am so psyched!

    What is Pop Warner? We are also going Dec, the 12-16th??? Are they there then and are they noisy kids? We're hoping for a nice adult vacation, just the two of us. :flower3::hug:

    Yeah I totally agree, the first pic looked so nice and that blue and red bedspread, uggggh. But that's ok, I'm still psyched! The grounds are gorgeous there, incredible. Does anyone know if any of the rooms in AB don't have those blue/red bedspreads, are all the rooms the same color? Thanks all!

    I enjoyed this thread so much before our vacation, I figured I would share a few of the pictures I took. I spent one evening wondering around snapping some night shots around Port Orleans Riverside

    This is the main lobby (from the back side).

    NOTE: I had a couple of requests for a high resolution of these to use as desktop images etc. If you want one just PM me. As long as its for personal use I will send one your way! Just no making money off of it :)

    I too want to be placed in AB, and if we are not placed there on our first night, I would think the possibility of being switched over there the next day would be pretty good. We are a party of 4, so they may put us in MB that first night. But on my ressie, I requested ANY room in AB, so maybe I will luck up.

    Every room in the AB section has those bedspreads. Once you are there, it actually works :)

    That doesn't mean you'll get it.

    I'm sorry if it's been posted, but does anyone have a picture of a room with the extra bed? I've booked the 5 of us, but am wondering if this will really work.:confused3

    When you check in, ask. Ask for buildings 14, 15, 18 or we loved it in building 28 as well. Can't hurt to ask and make nice with the CM :worship:

    thanks to this thread we have decided to not spend the excess money at a deluxe and stay here at the POR - we are hoping to get a room in AB so we will place the request - we wanted to stay at the CR in a tower room but none were available so we were going to go with GF with a park view but decided we are not going to be spending much time at MK so it seemed stupid to spend the extra money - my DD is 16 so even if the wait for the bus is long its not like she is a small child i think we will be just fine - now just to wait for September to get here - not that i am wishing time away - this will also be my DD's first time staying on property, her 6th trip to the world but never had the opportunity to stay on site - i cant wait

    Has anyone been here during Christmas (DEC)? I heard they had a Santa here and other christmas activities for children. My son is 7. We are considering switching from CSR to here because I heard the christmas decorations are really nice and traditional here. Also how are the buses during DEC? We will be there 12/15 to 12/20. TIA!

    We'll be there with you the 16th-20th. We requested AB, but now I am reconsidering MB, for the elevators. Anyway I am not going to do online check-in, so when we check-in I may can get them to play switch a roo if we do not like where we are put. I don't know if I really want a second floor room in AB now.
