The coffeemaker

Here is the coffeemaker as well as the pods provided. The coffee was good. We brought our own Half & Half so we wouldn't need the creamer packs.

That coffee pot looks very nice - thanks for the photo... And the coffee is good? Looking forward to better coffee at Disney. All I need is to get creamer from somewhere, and I'll be good.

Question about the outdoor movies: Is there something to sit on? Benches, stumps ... etc?

If I remember correctly, there were CMs around passing out pool towels for us to sit/lay on.


****ETA****
I just checked Andre's site and it confirms my memory.

Pool towels?? You might be able to answer a question I had. I don't want to pack "beach towels" for our trip. They take up too much valuable souvenir room in our suitcase. Do they let you borrow/rent or whatever towels for the pool or do you use your bath towels in your room?

There are complimentary towels available at the pool. No need to bring any from home nor from your room. There is also a towel drop off at the pool for when you're done.

Awesome!!! Thank you! I figured we would just take towels from our room. Being available at the pool makes it easier.

Is it safe to assume that it's too early to send a fax 8 days before check-in? We're doing a split stay and 8 days in advance is the last time we have access to a fax machine before checking into FQ. We did put requests in by phone, and confirmed 1 of the 2 requests online. I guess that will have to suffice?
