Has anyone ever brought a Roku with them?

Thinking about throwing the Roku in a bag along with an HDMI cable to stream Netflix etc on the TV at POR. Has anyone done this before? Results?

Honestly, the wifi is not great and definitely has trouble just streaming you tube. I've tried it at CSR, AKL and BWV within the past 6 months and POR may 2012. Sorry.

agreed. Their wifi is no nearly fast enough for streaming. Better to pack a small dvd player or download some movies on a tablet.

Not Roku, but we have not had any issues streaming hulu plus and netflix on various ipads, kindles, and laptops while at Disney.

Thank you! I did do netflix last year to get my downton abbey fix during rainstorms using my tiny netbook- so maybe I'll just stick to that. Good advice! I will leave it at home. Less to Schlep around!

We brought our Roku last trip and it would not work. It has something to do with you having to log into the internet to get the Roku to work and we couldn't get it to work. Maybe someone else has had better luck than we did I haven't read any of the responses yet.
