Trying to decide between POR and POFQ. Which one would be most desirable with a 4 yo ? We are taking our own vehicle, so we may end up driving to the parks vs riding the bus.

7 days!!!!!!!!!!!! I just can't wait! This will be my DS 5 and DH first time in WDW! I can't wait to take them to the resort I grew up going to! My DH thinks I have too high expectations since I haven't been there since I was a teen (I'm 27) and that I'm going to be disappointed but I've always said he was wrong and reading along to this thread and DISboards in General has helped keep the spirit alive these AGONIZING 8 months since I've planned this long over due trip!!

We tipped her 5 dollars I think

I have a question regarding resort specific merchandise. It used to be that each resort had tees, hoodies, magnets, pins, mugs and other items specific to that resort.

Recently I read that the resorts no longer carry any clothing with the resort logo on it. What about other items? Will I be able to purchase POR magnets and pins at Fultons? Is there anything else at the gift shop that is POR specific?

I didn't look for magnets, but I did buy a POR pin for my little pin trader.I think there were also keychains so there may be magnets.

I'll look at fulton's again, but in a weird answer to your question, AoA has a fair amount of resort specific merchandise, such as shirts, etc.

They seem to have brought back resort specific merchandise for the deluxes, Saratoga, and OKW. They haven brought back much, if anything, for mods and values.

Excited for you! Also at airport, but to go home....and there is a 4hour flight delay due to plane trouble, so we'll get home about 3 am instead of 11pm...big bummer, but thankful plane issues didn't happen while we were on the plane.
Have a super fun trip!!,

At airport leaving now. Weather was perfect. Hotter and more humid than I anticipated, but bright and sunny. Few rain spitters, but didn't last long at all. Rained one day when we went in to dinner, but was over by the time we came out. Great swimming weather.

Any chance you could show me a map like this for the royal rooms. We are in a garden view. I am thinking of requesting Oak Manor near the bridge. Thanks

Thank you all. Ok, well at least I know I can buy a POR pin! Wish they would bring back resort specific merchandise to all the resorts.

Check http://portorleans.org/room-requests.php. Just click on the buildings to see similar maps.

Don't forget also in my signature is a room request fax that is up to the guest's decision to send it in or not. But it can't hurt to try if you see a certain area you may like.

Just my advice to help...
