As long as they could fit inside of 5.5ft long by 2.5ft wide bed then yes.

Can anyone tell me how much they charge for valet laundry service? Knowing my kids, I'll probably need to do laundry at least once and it would be nice to not have to do it in the evening when I'll be exhausted. I'm sure it's expensive, but it might be worth it to plan for the extra expense.

Scroll down to see the chart. It says the pricing is from 2009, but I would only assume the prices have gone up since then.

Thanks for the link. Yikes! I don't think I'll be doing that. Laundry room, it is. LOL.

How late does Bob's show run? I believe he works Wed-Sat starting around 8? We arrive late Wed nt and was hoping to maybe catch the last bit of it? Sorry if it is posted on here already. I looked and could not find it.
Thanks

I plan on swimming at the quiet pool one afternoon, instead of Ol Man Island, and doing ours then. I am *hoping* there will be more machines available midday vs the evenings.

Can any POR laundry do-ers help with their past experience?

Any advice on getting a murphy bed? Or, do they have rollaway beds for the regular rooms?
Same exact thing here! We don't share well! Lol just wondering the same thing. DD loves the look of those cute Murphy beds.

If you book preferred, you'll get a room with a murphy bed.

We have the 5 of is in one room. Last time we visited, we had the two double beds and a rollaway. Does this mean that this time we willhave one of the murphy bed rooms? Or do they still do the rollaway bed thing?

The rollaways were eliminated when they went to queen sized beds.

All AB rooms have the murphy bed.

He takes a break around 10:00 pm or so, but "works the rooms" and then goes until midnight.

I may be booking "Garden View" at POR for an upcoming trip - it's my cheapest option. Are there any non-Royal Room, Garden View's in Oak Manor? Or are they all Royal Rooms in Oak Manor and Parterre? I just don't want to be too far away and Preferred isn't an option. Should I just request the Magnolia Terrace building? Thanks!
