    Going on the Fantasy June 2013. Plan to arrive a day early and stay at POR. Have all rooms been renovated or just the royal rooms. Are the royal rooms worth the extra cost?

    Hi Deirdra!

    Congratulations on your plans for a Disney Land and Sea vacation in 2013! How exciting!

    By the time you are visiting Walt Disney World in 2013, the full renovation of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside will be complete. The very last building remaining to be completed in the renovation project is currently underway and is scheduled to be complete next month!

    The Royal Rooms are really quite something! I had the pleasure of a tour of one of the rooms prior to them being completed and they were really stunning. If you will have any little Princesses travelling with you, or if you yourself would like a little extra does on 'magic' on your own stay, then I absolutely feel that these rooms are worth every bit of the very minimal extra cost. The attention to detail and fun 'extras' included in every corner are a joy to explore.

    The new rooms are located in Oak and Parterre buildings which are just across the river from the main lobby, dining and resort shop. You'll find it easy to access these areas via a lovely little footbridge.

    If you decide that a Royal Room isn't for you, you'll still enjoy a lovely stay in any of the newly renovated rooms in the Alligator Bayou or Magnolia Bend sections of this gorgeous resort.

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question. I hope to hear from you again soon!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you begin planning for your 2013 trip Deirdra!
