I know the ingredients are all the same but It seems to taste much better when they take the extra mile to toss the salad before plating it!
We were there in Jan this year and the salad was tossed for me. Maybe it's a YMMV thing? Hopefully they would toss it for you if you requested it!

I know they changed the menu offerings, but please tell me they still have the ice cream shop.

1. How much are the machines?
2. Do the machines accept credit cards or should i plan on bringing change with me?
3. I saw on the main page that you can purchase detergent in the laundry rooms. Anyone know the price of this, and if you can use credit cards, or if again, I should have quarters?

Thanks!
Hi, we travel for two weeks every August. I've become a laundry pro on vacation

I pack my own detergent. If you hit the laundry room on a busy day, I've noticed on several occasions the machines can run out of supplies. I found in K-Mart's travel toiletries section, you can find the Purex 3-in-1 detergent sheets in a travel pack. These are great and can be cut in half for smaller loads.

I've also experienced the change machine out of order or giving me 75 cents for my $1! I've learned to come prepared with pack a roll of quarters.

While folding my laundry, I cannot tell you how many Moms came in the laundry room only to have to run to the front desk for detergent or change. This has happened at various resorts, this is not POP specific. Lesson learned, always pack your own and walk in prepared

Don't forget to pack a VERY LARGE bag with handles to use as a hamper.

Thanks! I used that laundry room in Feb. There are 2 more locations, right? Hippy Dippy pool area and computer pool area?

Just wondering if anyone has insider info if the cashless upgrade is on the horizon?

Thank you so much!! It's just my husband and I traveling, and I'm only there for 5 days, but afterwards I'm going to Jamaica for 4 days, so I will probably only do one load. I am thinking of putting enough Tide for one to two loads in a mini-tupperware and just using that!

I will also bring some quarters for the machines...who knows...maybe I'll be able to help out someone who is quarter-less.

Target sells Tide singles in their toiletries section. I'd be too nervous to pack my own and risk leaks.

Oh, I've shared so many quarters in the laundry room myself It's funny you hear so many people complain they'd never do laundry on vacation but it's actually quite fun. I've had lovely conversations and met such nice moms in the laundry room. Plus Disney makes it tolerable by locating all their laundry rooms near the pools.

Food court opens at 6, but the hours for hot food start at 6:30. You would likely need to grab something from the grab n go area in the market section of the food court.

Can anyone confirm that fishing is definitely still allowed around Hourglass Lake? I know it is in the FAQ, but I read on another board that it was not allowed!

Just checked today....
Ice cream tubs and toppings are there. Don't know if there is anything else that was there that isn't now because we didn't use the ice cream shop before but did see the above items.
