Dmaz,
I think that sounds like excellent advice!! I will try that approach. I would just let him push me too far, then I would have my own little mental breakdown on a park bench and say. Thats it, Im not walking anymore.
We were there 8 days I think? We went to every park (except AK) but we did the water parks, seaworld, Universal, Epcot,Magic Kingdom,MGM- and I dont think we missed anything, except the different countries at Epcot.
I never got to go on the carosel at MK either.
I think next time if I want to stay at the pool, and he doesn't, Ill just say "Okay, see ya when you get back! Have fun!"

My husband came home last night and said that the reservation wasn't anything he was planning on following up on for right now...oh well.
But I think finding a time in the Fall to go would be good. And I am absolutely staying at PO FQ now!! Sounds perfect for me!!!
When in the Fall is a good time to go?
Where should I stay in PO does it matter?

Thumbs up

:D How exciting !!! The weather does really make a big difference as will the proper shoes. We would not think of doing it without our New Balance shoes. ( The higher the number on them determines the amount of support by the way). Take time to enjoy the scenery which is great at Port Orleans. Do the boat trip. enjoy the whirlpool. Stroll the river at night.........It is a small cozy resort. Have a happy honeymoon. The first one was just practice............LOl...... We all wish you well.....

Boatrides

What are the boat rides like?

Are there any boats to take you to any of the theme parks?

(oh BTW, I actually bought New Balance shortly before we went on the trip- I think the arch might be too high for me) But my Dr even commented on what great sneakers I was wearing. LOL! My feet didn't know!

I am interested to hear what folks have to say about PO FQ in March when they get back from their trips....

IF YOU GO IN MARCH COME BACK HERE AND TELL US!

How far is DTD from PO?

Bus trip to MK?
Should we rent a car to stay at this resort?

The boats only take you to PO Riverside which is the sister resort or to Downtown Disney, not to the parks. They have bus service that takes you to the parks. You would not need a car but hubby and I always prefer to have one. It makes it so much easier to go out to dinner at a place of our choice like perhaps Yacht and Beach Club or to the Wilderness Lodge or AKL. We love the freedome to come and go as wel like. Many prefer to use Disney transportation. It is up to you. We have been in excess of 20 times so we know our way around quite well and make better time than the busses. LOL.

Hi all,

My DH and I will be visiting POR in May and we are wondering if anyone knows what buildings have been renovated so far? Any information would be very helpful. Thanks.

To the best of my knowledge they have not started to renovate Riverside only just completed the New orleans resort and are just now reopening it.

Another question:

Is there kingbeds in some room in Alligator Bayou? I know they are in the Mansions, but was wondering about AB. Thanks for your help. :D

I recall reading that you are to call mousekeeping and request more towels for your room. I do not believe that they are near the pools but you are to take them with you from your room.

There is a place to pick up and drop off towels at the pool.

At least there was a year ago.

Thanks, LoveMickey, for the towel update. I was unaware of this. I did not mean to give wrong info.......I am happy to hear they are doing this now.

Which of the Alligator buildings are smoking buildings? We already have our reservations for August and want to make sure we don't get a smoking building.

Also, are there several bus stops around the resort?

Thanks in advance!

Hi...we are going to Disney in May and are ready to pull all of our hair out deciding on a resort! It's definitely either POR or CBR. I would LOVE to stay at POFQ, but do not like the theme at all and don't think I'd enjoy it that much. Anyway, a few questions:

1. What is the best room to request for short walking distances to the pool/food/bus stops? We will have a 2 yr old and do not want a ton of walking, etc.

2. Should I request a 1st floor room because of stroller, etc. I'd hate to have to haul that thing up and down stairs all the time.

3. Are there crowds at POR pool, eating during May. I've read on the boards that it was a really crowded resort.

4. And is this a better resort for us with my young dd than CBR? Transportation wise too?

I am absolutely clueless and have been planning on EVERY resort in the last week or so. I LOVE the look of POR and the pool, etc, but can't decided between it and CBR, they are very close.
