I believe they have those at POR, but also have a build your own yogurt parfait station, which would probably be a CS credit. Not 100% sure on that.
The build your own station is a CS credit. I asked when we were there at the end of November.

No, they won't be put into a King Room unless that has been booked - it's a specific booking category rather than a request. Otherwise, they will get a regular queen bed room. If you have two rooms booked (make sure the reservations are linked) and you ask for connecting, it shouldn't be a big issue to get the request granted as about 50% of the resort rooms connect.

That's been my experience too for the most part. There are 32 rooms on each floor of an Alligator Bayou lodge, and four stairwells, so just by the numbers there are only about eight rooms near to you that might have other people walking past.

Only 6 days until POR for us....I can't wait to be there!! Thanks to everyone who has posted such great information here, especially Andre and Venomhatch. I have my room request fax all ready to be sent tomorrow.....hoping for an Alligator Bayou room as I think my 2 boys will really like the theme.

I have one question (I am sorry if it is a repeat...I didn't see it here). We are planning to take a taxi to 'Ohana to breakfast one morning, and may possibly take a taxi home from the parks once or twice. Can the taxis only stop at the front of the resort, or can they drop off and/or pick up further in? We are really hoping for an AB room but didn't request a location other than that, so it looks like it is possible we could be pretty far from the front.

Thanks so much!!

Question 20th wedding anniversary trip

We are staying in a Royal Room for the first time for our anniv. Does the resort offer anything I could have delivered to the room for husband? In the past I have done the chocolate monorail at the Contemp, a box of chocolates at Wilderness. Something along those lines. The whole cake thing is too crazy for me and Disney Florist doesn't seem to have manly options.

Thanks for any suggestions.
