good luck, I wondered if they just added more resorts for October; bet it will keep going into November.

It can be a bit like saying you're planning on buying a new car and asking a public forum what make, model and colour you should get.

All that said, for an anniversary a quieter upper floor river view room might be lovely - perhaps somewhere like building 6 for fairly easy access for the buses too? Building 7 is nice too, but its river view King Rooms are about as remote as you can get.

Thanks for your input. I just thought someone here would be able to offer some advice on what the different locations/buildings could offer. I guess i will "car shop" elsewhere

If you are going on a romantic trip without kids I recommend bldg 6, or 7 ItS quiet and a shorter walk to riverside. We have stayed by the pool when we used to take the kids . Bldg 6 isn't too far from buses either. It is furthest from th boat. It depends what your looking for. Hav fun

check in on line if you have not yet, if you have click to check in again, some have said no need to make any changes, but click through again and "manage you magic bands" will change to "customize your magic bands".

The image files don't need to be big, just as long as they are detailed enough for me to read the text. Send to admin(at)portorleans.org.

Thanks again, and have a great time at Port Orleans!

I'll take some photos too. We arrive there tomorrow.
Regards
