A locker room, that's perfect! Thanks.

My family complains about me too, but yet they don't when I am on top of a deal to save us money!!!! I have 355 days until our trip but I also get the fun of helping a friend plan her trip as well and she goes 2 weeks after me (her daughter gets to dance @ Disney) so at least I have someone now who shares my excitement.

I'm a lucky one I guess. Not only does my Dh understand my level of planning, he is grateful for it!

We check in on Sunday for our first time at POR. I know I have a sinus infection due to an MRI. I am going to the doctor Friday to get treatment. My only concern is the fridge situation since we ordered large quantities of chocolate milk for my son.

I checked in two weeks ago and had requested magnolia bend due to my daughter having asthma. See next post.

Do not accept a room in Alligator Bayou or you risk an old unrefurbished room with no fridge. We had requested Newer Magnolia Bend due to daughter's asthma and DGD sinus surgery coming up. They insisted there were none available even though we had medical need noted on reservation. We were all coughing within 3 min of going in a room in building 27. No fridge either. I called and told manager it absolutely would not do and they miraculously had a beautiful new room in magnolia bend.

Cases of water

We will be arriving in 2 weeks and will like to get some cases of water shipped ahead to riverside. Does anyone know which websites sell cases of water at a reasonable shipping cost?

We have been back from POR for 9 days and even though this was our 3rd time here, it was our first time eating at Boatwrights. What a treat! I have to say it was one of the best table service meals we've ever had in WDW. I had the new short ribs: amazing. My husband loved the blakened mahi and my kids ate their meals in record time. Even with a food allergy we felt well taken care of and Chef Wes was really wonderful. Even if we don't stay at POR next time, we agree we will eat at Boatwrights again! Hope that helps!

Well, I stand corrected. The faded worn looking carpet and bedspreads, bed posts of rough looking wood, non-working refrigerator, and the musty, dusty odor must all be part of the intentional "shabby chic" decor. If that is others preference, that's fine. It was not for us, and I was grateful that we were at least given what we three girls wanted, paid for and had dreamed of for 8 months--Magnolia Bend, Garden View. The rest of our stay was perfectly lovely.
