    Hope you all can help. Does Alligator Bayou at POR have garden views or just the manison style? How do I request a room at POR for end of Jan.? Want a refurbished room not sure which one to pick? Thank you for all your help.

    Hi Michelle!

         We absolutely adore Port Orleans Riverside!  All of the rooms in Alligator Bayou will eventually feature two Queen size beds (yippee!) and a murphy style pull down bed, in addition to brand new flat screen TVs.  At the time of your visit, Buildings 36, 37, 38 and 39 are set to be completely refurbished.  The remaining rooms won't be completed until much later.  Honestly, these buildings are the most remote from the food court, but you will have just a short stroll to a nearby bus stop. 

         As far as room categories, Alligator Bayou is the only section of Port Orleans that allows you to book a "Preferred" location room.  These rooms are super convenient and are located right  next to all of the action.  You will also find "Standard," which will more than likely face a parking lot and the Garden View rooms that you were asking about.  The Garden view will offer a look at landscaping, bayou, courtyards or gardens.  You may also select "Water" and "River" views.  Of course, anything other than the standard rooms will cost a little extra each night.  Sooo, if you are looking for a nice, quiet completely BRAND NEW room, I would ask the Cast Member to please note a request for Building 36, 37, 38 or 39.  They can't guarantee this request, but will certainly do their best.  Have a fabulous vacation and keep those questions coming!

    Much pixie dust,
