I'll contribute a couple of pics cause I like them but hated the resort. Just curious why you need to get excited when this will be your third time at POR ???

Who is Seaspray?
Seaspray is a DISer with an awesome camera and some great photography skills. I would post a link to her site, but for some reason my pop-up blocker won't let me.

Try typing in brownfamilyvacations.com.

Enjoy! I am sure she would want you to!

Checkout the Carriage Rides - say hello to Ace - the horse!


You will be there when the bushes are beginning to flower....it will be lovely.

Have a great trip!
We loved POR just awsome ,and the banastuffed french toast at Boatwrights is addicting. My husband made me cancel two breakfast buffets so he could have his bananastuffed french toast

Thanks for all the pictures! Brings back wonderful memories as POR is our favorite resort. We gave french quarter a try just for the sake of "we felt we needed to experience it" ....and we did like it but POR AB section is our all time favorite. Plus, we have tried the food courts in almost all the resorts -value - deluxe and we really enjoy the selection and atmosphere in the Riverside Mill best of all. Just too bad they don't have beneits like they do over at FQ.

Well I hated POR due to size. I had a personal issue with room placement and it ruined my stay. I liked the resort itself. And the food court was nice. But it was very crowded when we went. The pool was over chlorinated the two times we tried it and there were teenagers in the quiet pools. So we gave up on swimming. I'm going back to POFQ where I loved it. Especially the hot tub and pool bar.

Our room location:



I was very disappointed at first. Then I realized that we were within just a short walk of the parking lot, the main building, the pool area, the first bus stop, and a not-so-quiet quiet pool/laundry facility. I ended up absolutely loving the location and highly recommend it.
