Thank you, Venomhatch, may some pixie dust come your way

Now, off to wait to check in for our flights

Oh I'm so jealous - can't wait to check out POR in person. Have a great trip and make sure and let us know how you liked the resort.

I thought I saw that it was $45 for a 25 minute ride... But I'm not 100% positive about that. I know someone else will know for sure though.

Here's the info from the FAQ in the first post of this FAQ thread:

So I am in search of advice or perspective. We are booked at POR from Feb 22-Mar 2. It will be DH, DD9, DD 7mo, and myself. We stayed in POR in May 2011 and loved it which is why we are coming back but now I am worrying about space with an added child and her gear. We will have a pack and play, stroller and extra suitcase. Do I have reason to panic? Should I look into a deluxe with larger rooms? I would love to hear from someone who recently traveled with a family similar in size and the rooms worked.

I think you'll be OK. I'd suggest asking for a mansion building room though, as the extra AB fold-down bed won't help out much in your situation (2 adults, 1 child, 1 infant) and you lose out on storage space.

If only it were possible to book it, your perfect option would be an Alligator Bayou King Bed room - two adults in the King Bed, 9-year-old on the fold-down Murphy bed, and plenty of space then for the pack'n'play and other stuff. However there is currently no way to book that option for more than two people (other than extra infants under 3). You could send a fax a few days before you arrive asking if it would be possible to assign you such a room, but you certainly can't specifically book it.

See you there anyway, we'll be at POR at the same time.

Shampoo?

I arrive on Wednesday with my 11 yr old DD and my son who is in the Army. We haven't seen him in quite a while, so we are double excited about this trip! We have checked in online and faxed the room requests this morning

I have a question about the shampoo/conditioner provided at POR. Is it the combined shampoo/conditioner in one bottle or are they separate products?

TIA!

It's normally combined product, except in the premium (Royal) rooms where they are now giving out separate products. You could always ask for some of course, I'm sure mousekeeping would help if they can.

I think you'll be fine. We're at POR right now (in a mansion room) and the room has plenty of places to store stuff (suitcases, etc.).

Has this changed since September? I was there the 1st to the 8th in building 18. We had the separate shampoo and conditioner.

Here at POR. Sad to say we are checking out tomorrow. Been an amazing trip with an amazing resort. Everyone is so very nice. My wife has eaten about 17472 cups of the mac and cheese from the food court so it must be good. I have tried 3 or 4 different items which have all been good. The Royal room we are in now in oak manor is great. Hate to leave but we have decided to come back in September.
