Thought I decided on the Swan, but now we are going back and forth between the Swan and POR royal rooms. The price is about the same, but the swan has no shuttle service to the airport. POR has the magical express, but is not walking distance to any parks. We will not have a car. My husband told me to ask MWrs so here I am! Swan or Port Orleans Riverside Royal rooms and why???

I am biased to POR. I have never stayed at the swan. Go try something new if you can afford it. - 5disneylovers  1272.4 #9 11:54AM
They are both similar in price including the shuttle fees. Are the royal rooms close to the food court? Can't decide!!! - Disneyaddict  374.7 #689 5:54PM
That's a tough one, they each have their own pros and cons. Since the price is about the same, I would go with the Swan due to location. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #6 8:38AM
Are the grounds equally as nice? - Disneyaddict  374.7 #689 9:05AM
I've not personally stayed at the Swan, but to be walking distance (or a boat ride away) from the Boardwalk, Epcot, and HS beats just being close to DTD. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #6 9:39AM
You can get a town car or Mears , but that's extra money . I would go with POR, but that's me !! - skcanfield  595.0 #14 9:09AM
Remember, Disney's Magical Express IS a Mears shuttle. It's just arranged and paid for by Disney instead of yourself. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #6 9:41AM
I would price out a shuttle from the airport to see how much it would cost to get to the Swan. The location of the Swan is much better but it is not Disney themed at all, so it depends on what you are looking for. POR does have a boat that you can take to DTD, but you will have to take the bus to the parks.Good luck, it's a hard choice! - Andrea84  753.3 #12 9:18AM
My hubby had a conference at the Swan and it is a beautiful hotel BUT it is not Disney themed and the lack of buses was a pain. Also it's restaurants are not on the dining plan if that us a concern. - mzdisnee  574.3 #15 9:34AM
We stay at the dolphin its 57.00 from airport to dolphin. We had no problems with transportation during our 17 days stay... ferry service as well bus service no problem...yes it's not a Disney hotel , but you still get the magic hours. - islandgirl58  515.1 #18 9:55AM
Also enjoyed the location of the 2 parks (epcot and hs)...even though we walked almost everytime to epcot...ferry service is great....plus you can enjoy boardwalk at night if not going to downtown Disney... - islandgirl58  515.1 #18 10:01AM
POR rooms were BEAUTIFUL! They're newly renevated and the bus shuttles go to every park and are not too far from the rooms. It's so nice to walk outside the room and be outside with fresh air and the New Orleans style lobby and dining hall is fantastuc - ariel116  105.8 #71 10:17AM
Fantastic* and u can take boat rides to DTD and there's horse carriages around the resort - ariel116  105.8 #71 10:19AM

Does anyone have a answer for me?  - oreolovebug  118.6 #3428 7:08PM
Countdown is a separate app. It's developed by the Mw app team, app316, but it is technically separate.  - secretagentangel  11902.6 #9 1:16AM

I thought it was just me. Lol. Someone needs to hit the refresh button. :) - DeadliestPassholder  448.8 #554 2:10PM
It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  11902.6 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10878.8 #11 9:55PM
