That's what I do.....works great! Mine is all ready to be packed for my POR stay in 10 days. They are truly space savers.

Same thing happened to us at Pop Century.

Yeah if you turn it all the way past or to 7 it will get very cold in there. I usually bring a little fridge thermometer to stick in there so I make sure it stays cold in there and food doesn't go bad. I say usually around 5 or mid way maybe a little between 5-6 it should be ok for most foods you put in there.

DVC/points

I am sure this has been discussed previously but this is my first time on DIS...

Are any of the rooms at POR or POFQ available if you are a DVC member? I see that they do not offer villas but did not know if this was completely off limits for use of points.

You might want to ask on the DVC boards. I do not own DVC, but I think I read a few times that you can in fact use points at some moderate or deluxe resorts, but that it is not a good value for your points.

I thought i had heard that this was a possibility before. Thank you for your help. I will check on the DVC boards.

We have a great location and everything has been great so far.... Except for the fact that my son threw up after downing a bottle of chocolate milk less than an hour after we checked in. He's asleep in bed now. I'm really hoping it was just exhaustion from being up since 3:45am, taking 3 flights today, and eating very poorly (junk food most of the day.) I guess we'll find out tomorrow. Oy.

What type of room did you book? What building are you in then?

Hope your son is better in the morning!

We booked a garden view and did not send in any special requests. We are in Magnolia Terrace. He has been up all night throwing up, and I've been queasy all night. This is not the way vacation was supposed to start.

POR Room question

Hello! We have 36 days until we arrive at POR for our very 1st trip to Disney World!!!! We can't wait!!!

My question is this: We booked a land and sea package, everything is paid for and ready to go. My girls and I decided yesterday that we wanted to upgrade from a standard room to a Royal room. My travel agent got right on it this morning and called Disney and was told they have no RR available. Even though I can go online and see there are rooms open for when we will be there.

Long story short, since we booked a land & sea package through the cruise line they are only allowed to book standard rooms. My travel agent is trying to work every angle she can to get us a RR. What I don't understand is if we want to UPGRADE and pay MORE money, why can't we just get the room we want if they are still available?

Sorry to rant. I'm just wondering if my travel agent can't get them to upgrade our room is, there any thing else we can try? I would love any suggestions. We can't wait for our trip!!!
