I believe just about all of the rooms have been updated with only a few remaining to be completed. You can find a full list of the room renovation schedule here: www.portorleans.org. It's a great site with LOTS AND LOTS of info about POR and PORFQ. If you can't find pics of the slide there, Allearsnet.com is also a great site and has tons of pictures. We love POR and will be there for a 4th visit this December!
Thank you for the link, very interesting. The royal rooms are beautiful! I'm still not sure about the slide, I can only see where it comes out. Would like to see where it starts and if it's curvy or straight, and how long it is. Just trying to get my ducks in a row before trying to convince Hubby that we "need" to stay there, lol.
POR is our fav moderate resort. I think its one of the best landscaped resorts on property just behind Poly. The grounds are beautiful. We love the mansion section either Acadian house or Magnolia Terrace are my favs.
Rooms are recently refurbed with all new everything. Queen beds.
Love the boat to DTD, evening entertainment in the lounge, horse & carriage rides, and fun pool. Also like the option of quiet pools. Great food court too.
I can tell you the slide is curvy and rather long - much longer than the dragon at French Quarter. We love the slide there. Riverside is our favorite Moderate resort, but we haven't stayed there in a few years since becoming DVC members. Beautiful grounds and like the pool area.
The slide is "curvy" and longer than the slide at FQ. It is a slow slide though (not really thrilling...). The entire Old Man's Island is very fun and well themed. We love the pool and the quiet pools.
POR is a great resort. Have your hubby check out the websites listed above. Just seeing how beautiful the resort is may convince him! But also tell him that it has a great food court, fishing, boating, boat ride to DTD, lovely sprawling grounds, a very relaxing laid back feel...
The entertainment in the lounge is a singer/entertainer (can't recall his name...someone will probably post it soon). Pretty good show.
