    I have a family of 5. wanting to stay on site but I have been reading bad reviews about POR. the reviews stated it was dirtyand worn in the rooms. On the outside it was beautiful. I even read the trundel bed was as thin as paper. any good reviews out there?

    I can personally say that I have never noticed a dirty or worn looking room in any of the Disney resorts I've stayed in.

    We've stayed at Riverside a couple of times and it was great. The trundle bed is not as deep as the regular mattress but it certainly looked fine.

    There are always extremes in reviews. Those who find fault with everything and those who are happy with everything. Most people fall in between.

    If there is every a cleanliness issue, just call the front desk and they will take care of it.

    We loved POR - not one problem with the room (although we didn't have a trundle bed so can't comment on those) we now have DVC but have added 3 days onto the end of this years holiday just so we can stay at POR again we loved it that much

    We found POR and then stayed there for our next 4 holidays in a row because it was SO good.

    I guess every now and again someone has a problem but I must say we were delighted with it. Thoroughly recommended

    What Keith said!

    We've now stayed there on seven different occasions. Still our favorite resort.

    We also stayed at POR and loved it and would go back again - one of its charms and drawbacks is that it is spread over a large area - it is a ovely resort to go walking in and very peaceful.

    This does however mean it can be a long walk to the food court

    the only other potential drawbacks could be - the beds we found were quite high off the ground for some reason cf other resorts and alos if you were on the upper floor of the 'cabin' there were no lifts - not a problem for us but did make dragging a stroller up and down stairs a bit interesting at times.

    that said we loved it and would certainly stay again

    We didn't enjoy staying there, but there were certainly no problems with the cleanliness or condition of the room.
