19 days out from my first stay at POR!!!

I have a question for you Andre. I have a standard room booked and have requested top floor in the Magnolia Bend section. Which building should I request to be closer to the Riverside Mill?

I wanted to post a picture that was all black and say "or did you mean from the outside?" But I was at work and couldn't find one.

Single digits until our first POR visit!!!!!!!! So excited.

I have a question about tipping Mousekeeping - how much is customary per day?

Thanks!

Good question! Just a little over a month until our trip and I don't know either!

LOL! Search for mousekeeping on the forums. You will see some brawling. Some don't tip, some tip $5 a day, some $1 per person per day, some even make fancy envelopes to put the tips in. (I do tip, but no way am I making envelopes.)

I will tip too but not doing the envelope decorating thing!

Generally, Magnolia Terrace - but some of its more remote rooms are much further away from the main buildings than the best rooms in Acadian House are. Much better to simply ask for what you want - i.e. an upper floor mansion building room as close as possible to the main buildings. No room for any doubt about what you are asking for that way.

As has been said, it varies a lot. I tend to go for $1 per room-occupant per night, left daily rather than at the end of your trip.

Thank you for this picture Andre!

I have a question. I'm going to be putting in an order from garden grocers in a few weeks and I wanted to stay away from ordering anything cold because we won't be getting in until late on our arrival date. (I know they may have fridges to store it, but I'd rather not have to worry about that) So I was just wondering if milk was sold at the POR convenience store? Is it a gallon or half gallon and about how much does it cost (probably a small fortune, but it is Disney so I expect that!!)

OMG OMG OMG!!! 3 weeks today and I'll be on a jet plane heading to WDW!!!!! My DDs this morning kept repeating "I can't believe we're going to Walt Disney"! Best part....hubby will be home from Afghanistan to be with us!!!

Question though...if we want to fill our little fridge with things like milk (for me and hubs), beer ( for the kids!!)(kidding, really just kidding!) and some snacks to have around, is it best to a) cab it to grocery store and pick up those things, b) Graden grocer or c) POR convenience store?

So if I want to take advantage of the extra hours in the morning, say for AK and MK, what time do you recommend being at the bus stop?

I would be at the bus stop 1.5 hours before park opens myself. We love the extra time in MK in the morning when no one is there. We take lots of photos and take to CM. I have not done an early AK day but its the longest bus rise too.
