I just want to say thanks to Venom for his fax template! I just faxed my building request over and it was all that much easier having a pre-made template to use.

Also, thank you Andre for your answer to my question a few days back!

What building did you end up getting?

That's what we thought too except we were thinking about going on the Disney Cruise. For the price we were going to pay for just 4 days at the cruise we are going to stay a whole week at POR.
Someday we'll do the cruise though.

My first three years, I did the old land/sea package (2000, 2002, and 2004). Back then, your resort and cabin were based on a package deal; going solo I did an inside cabin with a moderate resort.

First year was CBR. Second year I was going to try POR, but they were going through a refurbishment and my travel agent, being a Disney nut, got me a room at the Dolphin that year.

Third time is the charm, as I booked POR, took my mom and feel in love with it.

I have done about five more POR trips; two solo and I have actually done one, eight day, no parks, all resorts at POR. The great thing is you can end your night with a nice dinner at a resort, take the bus to DTD from any resort, and then stroll leisurely back to the water taxi.

The water taxis run so frequently after 4 pm, you are never waiting very long.

Do the water taxis continuously run until downtown disney shops close or do they stop earlier?

They run from 10am up until 11pm daily (every 20 mins in the morning, then every 10 mins after 4pm).

thanks...

Nice to be missed. But sadly I may be spotty for the next few days. The grandmother in law is not fairing so well and we will be in Tennessee for the next few days. So I will try to make appearances but no promises.
