In case anyone is at the resort at the moment and over Easter, both the POR and POFQ gift shops are offering pre-made and made-to-order Easter Baskets from today (Weds) until Easter Sunday. They can be ordered in advance and held for pickup.

I should be able to post the full Easter Sunday recreation schedules on Friday, so keep watching here or on http://www.portorleans.org/recreatio...s-schedule.php. (Oh, and in case anyone wants to, you can also follow updates via social media on www.facebook.com/portorleans.org or on Twitter at @PortOrleansOrg or by RSS at http://www.portorleans.org/portorleans-news-rss.xml)

As long as you have an ME voucher for everyone in your party you should be fine.
THat's what I figure it's more wrong flight wrong airline that has me ticked as it would mean person would get to airport to late for correct flight home. I'll call and fix stuff Thurs when I've got more time to spend on phone.

When it comes to ME they should do just fine. A couple of years ago we ended up getting bumped to an earlier flight because of a blizzard coming in. So on the way to the airport I was calling WDW to see if we could add a night, and let ME know. It went off without a hitch. 4-5 hours later we were checking into our resort, we had a nice room, ME brought our bags the next am with no issues. I know others have complained about ME, but I have only had one issue (knock on wood). An extra day shouldn't cause too much trouble!

Jumping on board from the other thread. Thanks Andre.

Been a multi-time visitor to POR and LOVED every visit. There is not a more peaceful and serene, yet fun resort in all of Disney-dom. This Dec, we're even stepping up. We'll be travelling with family and are staying in the Royal Guest Rooms.

Already can't wait for our mid-trip relaxation day that starts with the boat ride to Downtown Disney. Mindless shopping, easy pace and when we get back, just walking the grounds and taking in the scenery.

What are the height minimum and maximums for the water slides at POR and POFQ?

Thanks Andre! Do you know what the general schedule is for refurbishments of the pool/slide areas? I wasn't sure if it's once a year or if it happens at a certain time of year. We're arriving in November and hoping to use the pool and slide.

I just opened up my DME documents that arrived yesterday and they are correct. That makes me so glad.

My trip is so much closer now. All I have left to do is finish up my ADR's (yes, I'm behind as usual. LOL) and everything will be set.

I also have to look at the map and see where the laundry room is. I figure I'll probably do a load of laundry this trip while I hang out at the pool one afternoon.

You're going to love it! POR was my first on-site hotel, and I love it - so glad to be returning after a long hiatus.

I'm in the single digits now!!! (until I hit the road for the long drive, that is...)
