I believe they have frozen strawberry fruit bars ( I really like) some have pineapple ones. I've seen frozen bananas covered in chocolate and I believe nuts. If you go to ice cream place ( aloha isle, Sunshine terrence) I believe they use something else that isn't ice cream and I'm sure Plaza and fountainview have a serbert option. Edys is major ice cream provider in WDW so that may give you more guidence in things he can have. I leave May 3rd if you need me to check things more closely for you.

Great story and picture, HunMcBunny. Great pictures of the room, Buzznina.
Thanks for posting them.

thank you to all with the great ideas for the frozen snack ideas. At home it is no big deal at all. We have tried a few times to re-introduce ice cream/yogurt into his diet but all it does is give him one bad belly ache all night long. I know that we will find something for him as a good choice. I was hoping they added an option that looked like the popular mickey shaped ice cream on the stick since our last stay.
thanks again everyone!!!

My son also has milk allergy and he was able to get fruit bars, I think the dole whips are dairy free too! Just ask the person at the place you are getting snacks, they should know. Disney is AMAZING dealing with allergy!

My DH is thinking of bringing his golf clubs and getting in a round of golf at Oak Trail while we are on vacation. The Disney website says that free taxi vouchers to the course are given out at select Disney resorts. Does anyone know if POR is one of the "select" resorts?

Thanks for the info. I like to unpack everything and put the suitcases away so we have more room. We go for 12 days, so we have a lot of clothes. DH usually keeps all his stuff in the closet area (on the shelf or hanging) and I guess each kid will work with one drawer each.

We brought hangers our first trip, but we've never seemed to need them. We drive, so I can always fit a few in for some shirts for DH & I.

I was planning to use the small shelves near the fridge for food.

Each person got one shelf and it worked great. We now have it at home for towels but it will go with us on all trips.

The resort will give you extra hangers if you need them.
We also all got hanging toiletry containers to store on the hanger rack too.
This is a great idea. I actually have two of these. I will definitely bring them. Thanks!

Buzznina- Thanks for the pics of the Royal Rooms.

We are trying to get MIL to join us for one or two nights mid-trip (she lives in FL) and I just mentioned to DH that we should get her a Royal room. I'm sure the kids will have to spend the night with grandma after checking out your pictures.

Anyone have any info on what they will be doing to refurb the POR lobby? We are going May 20-26th and on Yehaa Bob's website it said they were going to be refurbing from April 25th to June 6th. I'm just wondering how torn up it will be and what kind of new stuff they are going to be putting in.

It's a complete refurbishment, new carpets, paintwork, etc, etc. However I don't believe it is going to be a major change to the style we are used to, more of a refreshing and general updating. The lovely themed paintings on the walls behind the desks will be staying.

The dates on Bob's site seem to move moving around a bit, but he is referring to stuff which impact on his show times at the River Roost Lounge (part of which is being used for lobby functions during the work).

Yesterday I posted a pic of the quiet pool from our room in Oak Manor. Here is what we saw if we looked the other way when we left our room. I guess we got the best of both worlds--booked a Water View room and had both Water View AND River View. The location was perfect--close to the pool and close to the bridge to the food court.

It was a RGR. We were on the 2nd floor of Oak Manor. #9276. It was perfect! I told DH that I never want to stay in any other room again! I want THAT room every time!
