When the discount came out we decided to switch to a bigger hotel and pay the same price! We were originally staying in the Little Mermaid section. We are so excited!!! Have fun!

No...they will be included on your KTTW cards that you will get upon check-in. It works like deducting your meals. Just got to the food court, pick them up, go to the register, give your card (only one is needed) and the mugs to the CM to scan and they will come off your room allotments.

Is there a way to have the little Princess' dresses sent back to the room after they have lunch at Cinderella's castle?

Just back from POR yesterday. Building 18, preferred room. We had 3 large drawers under TV stand, and beside it a Unit that held the ironing board & iron, with area for long hanging clothes & short hanging clothes. But no luggage rack to put the suitcase on. I put the suitcase on the chair & used it instead of putting everything in the closet & drawer. Lots of storage in the bathroom too.

My wife really wants to stay here and I keep thinking we are better off in a bigger room but I do love everything about this resort.

We do utilize the hotel room on our trips for naps and down time.

TIA
If you are talking about the royal rooms at POR, my son and I stayed in the two bed royal room last year. We loved it. We also loved the resort!

There were times when my son and I did get in each others way. I personally would not want to stay in this room with five people. Especially when you are tired and want to take a nap & the kids are either hyper or cranky! Yikes. However, if you are trying to save money, you could fit everyone, if your kids are little ones. You will not have much room to move around if you have a lot of luggage.

Definitely would not recommend if comfort is your concern! and you do not want to be cramped.

You can send purchases back to your room, but not your own (worn) clothing. There are lockers near the front of the park (by the train station) though, which you could use for the day and pick everything up when you leave.

However there are lots of kids who spend the whole day around the parks dressed as princesses, so unless heat is the issue they might like to do that just for all the extra attention they'll receive from the CMs.

Tomorrow...tomorrow...

I can't believe this trip is happening tomorrow!

I want to say thanks again for all the help in planning I've recieved from this thread and www.portorleans.org

Of course, I have one more question.
I'm bringing my laptop for the first time, and I'm concerned about safety. Is it really safe to bring it and leave it in the room? If I recall the safes aren't big enough to hold a laptop. Any thoughts as to where I could store the laptop when I'm not in the room?

We are here now and wanted to thank Venom for his fax, we requested bldg. 16 or 17 and we have a corner room in Bldg 17.

We have 2 adults and 3 kids (10,9,5) and have plenty of room. We do unpack and stack the suitcases in the corner. With 5 people it can get messy quickly, but we try to keep it organized. We bring a pop up hamper for dirty clothes, a sweater hanger for the closet a d a hanging shoe rack for toiletries .

I just suggest locking it up in a suitcase with a lock on the zippers. Out of sight out of mind. If they don't know its there it is not a temptation.

Thanks that what I thought, just wanted to know what our options were if they didn't want to wear them or if the parents didn't want them to ruin the dresses while eating.

POR is excellent with the faxed requests back in Dec we stayed week before Christmas & about 4 days before arriving I faxed in request for closest non preferred building to food court ( we need coffee first thing) & a corner room with double windows. To my surprise when we checked in at 745 am not only was the room ready but both requests were granted!

We booked our Sept stay at POFQ just b/c we haven't stayed here yet but I can wait to stay at POR again! Beautiful resort, über friendly staff!
