Fairly good to be honest; they have this happen quite a lot around the start and end of special offer periods and are used to trying to keep follow-on reservations in the same rooms if possible.

that is an option but the trouble with ice in a bag is it melts and can end up being a mess. Plus my gel ice pack is more comfortable.
Thanks for your advice.

You could always buy some of the Icy Hot patches that adhere to the skin. No mess, and no cooling needed. I don't know if they will do the trick for you, but they've helped me in the past when I was not in a position to use an icepack or gel pack.

We will have diapers, wipes, formula and all the stuff that comes along with a 3 year old and an infant (who will be turning 1 while we are there). Has anyone come across any issues?? It seems well worth it to us but want to be sure.

Hi Jodi,

I have shipped things down many times and would continue to do so when needed. We had one small problem one time, our package had been delivered to the sister resort. During the time the package was missing the resort was wonderful and helped us out all ways that they could. With that said, I would make sure you have enough of everything you need just in case something does go wrong. Also, make sure you bring the tracking information with you.

The first post in this thread, referenced in the thread title, gives a lot of great information and a link to www.portorleans.org where you can see an interactive resort layout map.

I pulled my back out 3 weeks ago and need to ice it. Planned on bringing a gel ice pack with me but not sure what my options are on how to freeze it?

Thank you

They have those ice packs (at target is where i got mine) that dont get cold until you smash them. They are the same size as regular ice packs so are very conveniant and flexible. Check them out
