When I took a boat taxi from SSR to Downtown Disney, the first row was reserved for those with a handicap.I do believe there is room for a scooter.

DH has never been, and the last time I was there I was 13 (we won't mention how many years ago that was). We will be staying at POR since we are a family of five, and this time around we can't swing the deluxe resort.. We hope this is the first of many Disney trips. We will be arriving in Disney on Nov 15, and returning on the 20th or the 21st. Still undecided. I can't wait to get to know you better, and hear some of what you are planning as well!!
Welcome!!! I agree with pakonos....POR is a great resort and Akershaus is wonderful for breakfast!!! We have stayed at POR our last two times. And, although it looks like I could swing a deluxe this time around, I just can't put out the extra money just to sleep. POR is perfect for us! We are a family of 5 as well (DD13, DS11.5, and DS4.8) and we fit in there just fine. Plus, it's just a really peaceful resort and the food court is great!

We always do Akershaus for breakfast. I wasn't planning on it for this trip, but my entire family (from the boys to the DD who will be celebrating her 14th b-day there to my hubby) told me "we are eating at Akershaus!". They enjoy the times with the princesses and the food is awesome!!! We've never done lunch or dinner there, but I am sure you can find reviews on the dining board.

Just made our initial plans for vaca. Nov 28-Dec 5 at AoA. Will change to a split stay and add one more night but need to figure out our DVC points first. But so excited to go back to AoA...we had a lot of fun there last week.

You can send a PM to figmentswife. She is the one who handles that administration.

We stayed in Lion King and loved it! In July, my Dd7 and I did POR.

AoA is just superior in my opinion, but we do like POR, too. It's just that if you like the AoA movies you will literally be living in the movies. The pool is huge and fun, plus there are quiet pools at Cars and Little Mermaid. Food court is wonderful. Gift shop is huge and has fun gifts from the movies. Just roaming around the resort is very entertaining. My girls loved it!

We loved the extra room in the suite, dining table and kitchenette. Having the second bathroom was really helpful in getting us all ready.

And the rooms are decorated beyond anything in a regular room.

We normally use our DVC points and this is as close to that as you can get without using points.

I can't believe I'm this far behind! I'm subbing in! We'll be in the World from 11/8-11/16. I'll be running the W&D Half while we're down there, and I'm ridiculously excited!
