spent the last 2 days reading this epic thread... much learned.

Ive got 2 days until im able to to do online check in and i think im as excited as the kids are to go. its their and my wifes 1st time going. We are going june 24-27th.

But have 2 questions, one easy one more complicated.
The in room coffee makers? they just use the regular Kcup pods correct? Me and my wife are big coffee drinkers and it would be nice to able to bring more.

Second...what are the chances we would be getting the magic bands? I showed my kids the pics of them online and they really want them.

Im sure there are more questions but ive got time to think of them.

By the end of June, you might stand a chance if things don't get pushed back again - which they already have been several times. I wouldn't put much of my own money on such a bet though, but we shall see.

You are welcome to bring as many pods as you wish; you are not bound by using just what they leave you or the brand either.

We are hoping for them the third week in June as well, but until they are officially rolled out by Disney for everyone, there is no speculation what will occur.

Right now, it is by invite only, because it is tied into the new Fastpass system, so they are "testing it" or "working out the kinks."

I don't think the coffee makers take Kcups, but I could be wrong since we have not stayed at POR yet.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but aren't K cups and pods two different things? Because I thought the coffee makers at POR and POFQ use the pods.

When we were there in December they were normal coffee makers. We actually brought our keurig because we are huge coffee drinkers!

Ok so here it is: From 8/1-8/8 at POR in the standard RR

ADR's
8/1-check-in
8/2- Tusker House 11:15 am-AK
8/3- Ohana 5:15 pm-resort day pirate cruise DD 8/4- Garden Grill 5:50 pm- Epcot
8/5- Boatwright's 6:40 pm- resort day-DTD
8/6- Mamma Melrose w/Fantasmic 4:30pm- DHS 8/7- BBB/ 3:25 pm- Cinderella's Royal Table
8:15 pm-MK
8/8- checkout

OMG so exciting! I went ahead and said the heck with it and added the RR with dining for our first night. I was trying to save some $ by just getting a standard room but once I did the math I was like forget it just do it. By adding the extra night of dinner I got the ADR for the Royal Table at MK our last night :D Can you tell I'm giddy!! Oh and 100 days to go!!

June 24th check-in for us too!! Can't wait to do online check-in and feel like we're getting closer! My first time back since I was 10 (30 years ago!) and first time for DH and kids! Hoping for the bands too. I guess we'll see!

Correct. Not k-cup machines. They take little pods that look like big round teabags.

The coffee maker in our room was a Cuisinarte pod maker.

Make sure to use bottled water. The water out of the tap makes the coffee taste like crap IMO.

We are headed back to POR the last week in August. We were last there back in 2005 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The boys got to cane fish, we took boat transporation to DTD. We are planning to that again as well as the carriage ride this time. Looking forward to the trip!

Hi! We are staying at POR from June 16-June 23. On June 20, we are having a resort day and have breakfast reservations at Chef Mickey and a dinner reservation at Ohana. What is the best way to get there?

Thanks!
