I am getting ready to ship a small box to POFQ. I shipped things by USPS in September and the results were less than optimal. Do I remember correctly that shipping by UPS is a better idea? And I assume that I use the address on the first page of this FAQ, including my name, reservation number and arrival date.

We have a hot pot too (or electric kettle to us Brits ), it's in our Owner's Locker as it's not worth carrying it back and forth to the UK. We got one with an auto-off sensor for when the water has boiled.

Jackson Square Gifts and Desires (see my reply in message #148 of this thread to the last time you asked this question).

Yes they do sell a few CDs and DVDs there, but there are better places on property for a wider selection (World of Disney at DTD for example, and several of the theme park stores).

Thanks Andre for the info! I really love to stay in POFQ for my birthday! I have to go to World of Disney at DTD to get a CD Rom for My Computer I have Windows XP! I will get Mickey saves the Day! for Windows! I hope they have it!

Hope you have a great birthday. You didn't mention CD ROMs, and the program you mention is 8+ years old (it came out before Windows XP in fact) so I rather doubt you're going to find it at WDW. I assume you didn't manage to find it during your stay at All Star Music just two months ago?

Why not get it from somewhere like Amazon before you go, there are still vendors who have it in stock for just a couple of dollars.

I also posted this question as a thread, but I an worried about whether or not our family will get adjoining rooms in January. our 18 year old wont be joining us until the 3rd day of our trip, I dont want to be in a separate room from our 8 and 10 year old.. what should I do?

Disney policy says they give adjoining rooms to families that dont have an adult in the second room, and when i told them that we will not have an adult in the second room until night three, they said the resort "should be able to accomidate us". what do you all think? what are the odds we'll get adjoining?? should I change ressies for the first two nights??? TIA for all the good ideas!!
