Well it's official! We are taking our first trip to Walt Disney World this December!! My husband upgraded our room to the Royal Room at Port Orleans Riverside! I am so excited! If anyone has been, I would love some tips!!

We stayed at POR about 4 years ago. Love how its close to Epcot and HS (you can see the fireworks from Fantasmic on the way in via Epcot Center Drive). If you want a quiet restaurant that is underrated for their food, eat at Boatwrights at the hotel. And if you like to pin trade, there's a giant board inside their store.   - BaseballMickey  8007.3 #11 11:34AM
Last time we were at DL we got or son into pin trading so that's a great tip! Thanks! - WirTANenAtDisney  140.1 #2965 1:44PM
If you decide to explore or visit any of the other hotels, they all should have a pin board either in the lobby or at the front desk. WirTANenAtDisney - BaseballMickey  8007.3 #11 1:52PM
I hope you have a wonderful time! I'm going this year as well! I'm so excited.  - KrystalColors  335.2 #761 11:15AM
Yay!! When? - WirTANenAtDisney  140.1 #2965 1:44PM
what is the scene above the bed? - MsTikiMermadam  1352.6 #140 7:33AM
The room is esentially Princess Tianas guest room. So I believe is a scene of the bayou, and there's a button you press where it lights up a 'firefly show' - similar to the fireworks on the headboards of the DL resort - WirTANenAtDisney  140.1 #2965 7:34PM

I posted a picture of the headboard last week, if you click on my name you'll see it. My favorite part of the room is that your faucet is Aladdin's lamp and the magic carpet is on the floor. My daughter would pretend to ride the magic carpet to the bathroom every night. - brigeet  613.4 #353 6:43AM

My maiden name is Wirtanen (it's Finnish) and as a kid no one could pronounce it correctly so we always said 'Wirtanen, like we're tannin' at the beach' but as an adult - I would rather tan at Disneyland lol  - WirTANenAtDisney  140.1 #2965 4:49PM
Do you mind if I asked what that sounds like phonetically?   I'm guessing Vurtannin? - Butterlina  1597.2 #115 4:52PM
Sorry I'm nosy and like sounds.   - Butterlina  1597.2 #115 4:53PM
In Finland yes the W makes. v sound, but in America we use the W as a W. So it's pronounced just like 'were tannin' at Disney :) - WirTANenAtDisney  140.1 #2965 4:53PM

Ah.  Thank you.  I m odd and line the sounds of voice.  - Butterlina  1597.2 #115 4:55PM
Also I'm just odd.   - Butterlina  1597.2 #115 4:55PM
Nkt weird at all! I like to know how things sound as well. It's easier then it seems. That's why we came up with the phrase 'were tannin' at the beach' as kids to help people say it correctly.  - WirTANenAtDisney  140.1 #2965 5:11PM
I love your story!  WirTANenAtDisney  And I have often wondered about it, too. So, thanks to HandMeAChurroImmaFaint For asking! - MeridaFan  4244.2 #38 5:19PM

So we bought 4 tickets to the Halloween Party on Halloween this year and now are in need of a 5th, but the party is sold out for that night. What are the chances one of you lovely MWrs has an extra I could buy from you?? I would love you forever and ever and ever and ever!!!

I was just informed by my mother in law at my mini was chosen as Citizen of the Day today in Disneyland and had a special spot in the parade! I crying because I was not there to see this amazingly cool thing!

How special! I bet your mini is thrilled. I know it's hard to miss our kids doing special things but think of it in a different way. Because you are not there your mini is able to tell you all about it. You will get to hear the excitement in his/her voice and learn exactly what it was that made it special to your mini. The best part is that you will be there to listen and your mini will learn that his/her mom is truly interested in what your mini has to say. What a great way to keep building a relationship of communication with your mini. Have fun with you mommy/mini time.ย  - Bassplayerswife  791.9 #250 11:13AM
Thank you, I needed that pep talk! I just feel so sad I missed such a special thing. And I wish I had a picture or something, my MIL isn't a good picture taker lol but you're right, it will be special when he tells me about it! - WirTANenAtDisney  140.1 #2965 11:18AM

Hi! So what is everyone's opinion on the Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party? We changed our trip from Nov to Oct and we are wondering if it will be worth it to spend another $75-80 a piece to go to the halloween party one night. Any insight you can give would be helpful!! Thanks!

I went for my birthday last year (it was my first). I would say GO! It was fun to see all of the adults dressed up too, and be able to be part of a different kind of Disney. It was quite busy the night we went, and the character greets were REALLY long๐Ÿ™€, but I enjoyed the experience! It's actually a forever happy memory in my mind because it was just me and my hubby. My hubby is a big Grumpy guy (6'4", 280lbs) and the went trick or treating to each station just for me for my brithday without even a grumble...this is how I know that he loves me more (don't ever tell him I said that)๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1479.3 #122 10:08AM
I've been 4 years in a row, and my husband says the party is the best (and he's not a dl fan). Definitely go! - tipytoz  5.5 #17944 3:24PM
I think it's worth the money. Besides the fun of trick or treating you get alot of photo opportunities with the characters. And the Halloween light show is cool. - makeitbluesaysmerriwether  228.4 #1691 9:09AM
I took my family last year and it was AWESOME!!!  So Awesome we are going again this year!! - st8countyfire  47.4 #5065 10:17PM
IT IS SOOOOOOO WORTH IT!!!!!  So much fun!!!!!!  And all of the really great Villians come out during the party that are hard to find (if ever) during the regular park hours!!! - valj84DisneyDeppAddict  313.3 #882 3:30PM
