    Of all the times we've been there I've never stepped inside that area. I've walked past it many a time. Great images Andre.

    Sigma 10-20 wide I think, probably with a circular polariser.

    I have to say that I was one of the ones that didn't get it...:guilty:why people love this mod the most....these pics are amazing!! Andre's pics alone have totally converted me and I will now be looking at this resort for our 2014visit! POFQ, quite frankly, scares ME and I don't want my 5 and 3 yo's scared of the hanging faces and jesters!!:rotfl2:

    My love affair with POR started with my fifth trip; first time with my mom. She absolutely loved the resort and made me fall in love with it too.

    I am southern girl, so I love the mansions. You can almost picture Scarlett O'Hara running down the stairs in her ball gown.....a girl can dream.

    Andre is such a wonderful ambassador for both of the resorts.

    I feel exactly the same way about POFQ. I hate those faces. Looking at you from all directions.:scared1: We are staying at POR for the first time and I hope it is all that I dream it will be. We have always stayed at Values. I am so excited. It is going to be the best vacay I have had in a while!

    I think the pics are what have done me in as well!

    Staying for first time at POR in a royal room standard view. Here is my question. Arriving really late around 1 am. How far of a walk approx will it be from front desk to room? With kids and all our luggage I'm hoping not too long. Thanks!

    This is so pretty :thumbsup2 We are leaning toward staying here our next trip. We did stay here a long time ago when it was called Dixie Landings in the mansion section. We would like to try the AB this next time.

    This is a photos thread, it might be best to check out the FAQ thread instead.

    But it really is a "how long is a piece of string" question; it could be anything from as little as 300 yards up to 600+ yards from the front desk to your room door. It might be easier to drive round (if you have a car) and park behind your building and walk from there - or cheat and get Bell Services to take your luggage and ask if you can go with them on their pargo.
