    Hi Cathte!

    And :spraywelcome: to Secrets!

    POR?

    You're gonna love it! It's our favorite resort.

    Save one evening to go see Yehaa Bob in the lounge. :thumbsup:

    Hello Cathte and :rainbowwelcome: to Disney Secrets. There are lots of folks here to help you with your planning. As Tom says about POR, it is also our favorite. And yes Bob is not to be missed. You also might want to take a trip over to POR's sister resort POFQ and try their beignets. The only thing missing is chicory coffee from making it a true New Orleans type treat.

    Welcome to Disney Secrets! POR is a very popular resort! They have a lovely food court, the ferry to DTD, and a nice on site restaurant. It's a pretty resort to walk around, too. :yes:

    You are going to love it!

    Although I am excited to try another Disney resort, I wished for a more
    " Mickey" atmosphere somewhere in the room. No cute Disney soaps, pics....and I heard there might be a chance we might not even get a "Mickey" shaped towel. But, I'll be okay (LOL). I have to remember, I am still at Disney!!
    :yes:

    Re: POR

    :hug2: I can't answer about the soaps etc as it's been a long time since I stayed on site, but as you say, you will still be in Disney amongst the Disney Magic :D
