It can vary. Sometimes they start with the North Depot, sometimes they start with the South. Usually the South Depot is the first one dropped off.

We were there last week and it was different each time but most the time we were last at the South Depot on being dropped off.

See http://www.portorleans.org/buses.php#Routes for the best I've been able to work out.

We'll HAVE to get up early on most of the mornings that we're there. DD has a BBB at 8:15 the first morning, then breakfast at Akershus, which is not as early but we'll still need to be up and moving to catch the necessary transportation in order to make our reservation. Then on the 3rd day we hope to get to HS early enough to get DS on the Jedi Academy list. Sleeping in is a luxury we will NOT be enjoying this trip!

Boatwright's WILL NO LONGER serve breakfast as of 2/21...
No wonder I couldn't find banana-stuffed French toast on the menu! Oh well. My kids usually just eat pop tarts for breakfast anyway. Although we will do breakfast with the princesses at Akershus. All the pics are getting me excited too! We'll be there Jan 1-6!

We are a family of 5, so we will be put in AB. My question is, is there a dresser with drawers? I like to unpack and not live out of suitcases on our vacation, and with the refurbishment the murphy bed takes the place of the dresser that the TV sat on. I've tried looking in pictures, but I can't tell if there are dresser drawers anywhere else in the room.

There are 3 drawers. They are right below the murphy bed and the tv.

to stay organized with 5 in these rooms is very important. In addition to those drawers, I recommend a few hanging shoe holders with vertical shelves to hang in the bathroom area. Something like this http://www.target.com/p/3-shelf-swea...hing+organizer:

I also always bring a pop up hamper for dirty clothing. You could do the fabric cubes as well if you need more storage, these can be stacked on top of the hanging area in the bathroom.

Does anyone have a recent picture of the Magnolia Bend beds with the triple sheet/runner? I have looked on portorleans.org and can't find anything. Just curious! Booked the Free Dining bounce back offer while I was at the World last weekend and we booked POR. We stayed at POFQ on our last family trip and I would like to stay in a Mansion room next year (family of 4).
