Jeany, as I've said before, please see the Frequently Asked Questions list which is in the first posting of this thread.

It's not hidden, this is what it says:

Quote:
What time can I check in and can the resort store my bags?

Rooms are officially available from 3pm but you can check in at the front desk as early as you like. You may get lucky and find that a room happens to be ready earlier, or otherwise Bell Services can store your bags while you head off to enjoy the hotel facilities or the theme parks.

Check-out is by 11am, although you can request a free later check-out time (up to 1pm) as long as the room is not need urgently for other guests. Again, Bell Services will store your bags until you are ready to depart, and they also have a fridge for items which need to be kept chilled. Note: the main pool has showers, lockers and changing rooms if you want to take a dip after you have checked out.
Or see www.portorleans.org too.

yeah, be careful about asking questions that are already posted at the beginning of the thread Jenny, Ive fallen into this trap before and it isn't pretty. Some people take it very seriously when you dont obey the rules...
Hey, feel free to start a new thread and ask anything you want and we'll let this one fade in to oblivion with no new questions needed...heck everything you need is on the first post...

"Jenny, as I've said before. . . . . rabble rabble blah blah.... its on the bloody first page . . . . rabble rabble" he says in a corny british accent....

Just messing with you andrewilley

That's OK Jeany, I know you must be getting really excited about your upcoming trip. Is it a family visit?

DH and I just back from a Dec 12-18 stay. My 2nd at this resort and DH's 1st. Our room was in Bldg 5 ground floor facing the pool entrance. PRIME LOCATION. The room was clean and Mousekeeping did a good job. Noise from other rooms not an issue. A couple of cute towel animals. Food court was not especially crowded in the AM. Resort was decorated very nicely for the holidays. As you leave for the parks each morning a couple of "Jesters" are at the door to answer questions and pass out park maps. The Bounceback offer was in our room and we took advantage of that for a trip in Sept. We always go to F&W and the dates worked for us. It was 30% off Mods and Deluxe's and 40% for Villas. We chose FQ again because of the size. Bus's coming and going were minimal waits. No more than 10-15 min and drivers were calling up extra bus's if everyone didn't get on.Staff was friendly except for the CM checking us in. But we didn't let her "Bah Humbug" spoil our holiday spirit. Now to start planning for September.

I'm curious about the shop at POFQ. We'd like to have soda in our room - Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, maybe Mountain Dew. Do they sell these in cans, such as six packs or 12 packs? We'd considered grocery delivery, but I'm not sure we'll be ordering enough to warrant it.

Thanks!

I requested Bldg 5 or 2 facing the Hot tub.

That was as specific as I got. I didn't care what floor I was on. Just wanted to give the room scheduler an idea. It really was convenient to walk to food court and back or on out to the bus.

But I really do think that "Pixie Dust" was somehow involved.
