Miles I've driven to Disney this year:
330 as of wk 1
Week 1, Jan 5-6 ~ Port Orleans Riverside, Royal Room #5409
New Year Family Meet-Up
Take a gander at that lobby, and see if you can find those Hidden Mickeys! This resort is so oozing with laid-back, Southern charm, I swear I *almost* said, "y'all". Being a Yankee who's lived in southern states 16 years without introducing that, dare I call it a word, into my vocabulary, that is really saying something about the ambiance of this resort.
As you meander through the mini-tour, let me regale you with a little tale.
The Great Camera Caper

Being a devout Disney fanatic and man of my dreams, he left the room totally untouched, so we could see it like he had. Even the towel Mickey heads were in place on the beds. When my camera is replaced, I hope to go back and replace the pictures as well.
- Staying at Port Orleans and in a Royal Room
- Having both camera and camcorder stolen on Disney property. (I can’t recommend this in the least, so do lock your doors always.)
