Does he play to all ages? My DD loves live music and shows. Is it easy to come and go if she gets tired, or is it obvious you are leaving before the show is over?

TIA!
My daughter loved tis show as a kid. She is now 22. We will be there in January We can't wait to see him again

I didn't want to be a pest, so during the first phone call I asked if it would be ok for me to call back after I re-sent the fax. The woman I spoke with was so gracious and sweet and assured me that it was ok.

Thanks for that, Andre is right about the it is just a room, but to some it could be a medical reason or something more important to complete your stay so I will continue to help people as much as I possibly can. Summerlady if you need anything else just ask.

The fax confirmation is just one fax machine saying, "Hey I got it" but if no one picks it up and reads it or it gets lost on its way to the right person. Then you need to repeat the whole process.

Disney Again

I just booked a suprise trip to Disney for my family for next December! I know it it a long way off but I am so excited! We will be back at POR again! I cannot wait. I really cannot wait to tell them that we are leaving after Thanksgiving dinner next year to start our drive! This will be our third stay at POR and I am just as excited as the first time we stayed there.

non-preferred room AB

We are leaving in 20 days for our first stay ever at POR. Me, DH, DD 17, DD12, DD6. We have a non-preferred room for a family of 5 so in AB. I am thinking about requesting AB 16 as we plan on driving to all the parks. Should I request that or just check in when I get there and see what happens?

Wee always bring breakfast to eat in the room. Last time we brought oatmeal and used the hot water from the coffee pot. This time I was thinking cereal and milk. Problem is I can't remember anything about the fridge other than it worked really well to chill water and juices. Would a half gallon fit or should I go down to quarts? We aren't morning people and found that we do better eating in shifts while some are getting ready is more efficient. My other thought is a box of muffins and juice.

Half a gallon carton is fine to fit into the fridge door compartment, or you can fit a gallon onto the main fridge shelf.
