Well after much discussion and surprisingly little begging, my boyfriend agreed we can stay in the world for the last week of our trip! It's looking like POR.. What are your thoughts of this resort?

I'm not a fan of POR... I'm a POFQ fan! Contrary to what everyone said, I find POR loud, loud, loud! Anytime POFQ shared a bus with POR the guests were so loud! I never had that problem with POFQ. I've the same experience in the POR food court, loud! The bus service is much better at POFQ too. On shared buses they are always the first stop. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1259.3 #4 7:01PM
I agree! We stayed in the royal rooms last visit and after 2 days of the buses and loudness we switched to our fave POFQ. Its really nice but too big for us. - girlonfire  54.1 #102 9:47AM
I've stayed at both sides and llke them both. They are both peaceful and pretty. The FQ side is smaller and easier to walk to everything, but the Riverside has a nice bar/lounge area and table seating restaurant. - ally  509.0 #17 3:56PM
We always rent a car, so I know nothing about transportation. - ally  509.0 #17 3:56PM
Have stayed at Riverside a few times and love it. - Pooh147856  336.8 #23 4:08PM
Very nice and quiet. Beautiful scenery, nice pool. A lot of walking if you don't stay near a close bus stop, (we were in a Royal room) but we didn't mind the 5-10 min walk, other areas might be longer. Nice views across the water/bridge, and ferry boat to DTD. - mrsincredible  1103.7 #6 4:11PM
Great choice. You'll love it - 5disneylovers  1144.0 #5 4:32PM
We just stayed there and I loved it! It is so peaceful. We never waited more than 15 mins for our bus. The food court can be far depending where your room is. I highly recommend the royal rooms if it is in your budget. You will not be disappointed. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #584 4:43PM
Love POR! It's so beautiful and peaceful and open - ariel116  99.3 #70 4:46PM
It's very peaceful !!! You will enjoy it !!! - skcanfield  550.7 #14 6:37PM
We stay there quite often and we love it there. - tdarden  10.5 #241 9:32AM
The last time we stayed there which was many years ago it was port Orleans which we loved and next to it was a resort called Dixie landings. Lol - mmddgp  790.9 #8 9:44AM
We love POR and are staying there again in November - Ariel42  262.9 #30 9:50AM
I may be just down the river! My "home" resort is Saratoga. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1259.3 #4 1:25PM
We stayed there on our honeymoon in 08 and I loved it. So pretty, restaurant is good and took the carriage ride. It was February so we didn't visit the pools. Only thing my hubby didn't like was there was a pretty good walk to bus from our room. If I had known better I would have paid a little extra for a preferred room (like i did out last trip at Pop) they are usully closer to bus etc. I wish we could afford to stay at POR again. - txdisneymomma  118.1 #66 10:38AM
We love POR! We love the grounds, love the activities, love the food court. The only drawback is that it's HUGE, so you have to do a lot of walking from one place to another. Buses come quickly, but if your room isn't near one of the stops, it's kind of a pain. I'd pay the extra to stay in a preferred room which would be closer to the bus and food. I hope you enjoy it. We've stayed there twice and enjoyed it both times! - BagGal  314.5 #25 3:40PM
Thanks for the imput everyone! I think it's a good choice for us, we have a rental car so bus stops aren't an issue, even if we end up taking the bus, were already doing so much walking around the parks I'm sure the extra 20 mins a day won't matter! And if not.. He's strong... He can piggy back me πŸ˜‰ - allieenicolee  16.1 #188 8:37PM
Cool. πŸ‘For the piggyback - 5disneylovers  1144.0 #5 10:18PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  147.2 #2724 3:57PM
@@@Admin I booked with get away today and am staying at the HoJo in December.  Does MW still give the 100 credits or do I have to book with the hotel directly? - dsnylvr1975  24.1 #6478 5:02PM
