There is a sticky at the top of the board that tells you about shipping to the resort and how to have the box marked so they know you are coming.

They will located it in the baggage services area, where they will be able to locate it.

They are very good at this; people have deliveries quite often.

I'm aware of that... what I'm wondering is this: if Dr. Pepper comes into stock at Staples.com next week I don't want to risk it not being in stock on May 25th which is when I'd place the order. I'm wondering if I order next week but am not arriving until June 1, is that a problem? It's a whole month early.

Thanks!

Trying to decide if I should stay here. Is the ferry to DTD stroller friendly or do I have to fold it up?

That is a long time to take up space at guest services for other guests. You do have to realize people are cheking in every week.

Thinking seriously staying at POR for our upcoming trip in Sept. Waiting to book the free dining offer

How much sharing of buses do POFQ and POR share in Sept.?

TIA

The link you need to click on says "third post in this thread". The one that says "here" should be taking you to portorleans.org.

Thanks! I just booked it! And am super excited to stay here. This will be my only opportunity to as DH isn't on this part of the trip and he prefers the deluxe resorts. Plus we are in the middle of buying DVC resale so our next trip will be on points. For this trip, I am resort hopping from POR to AoA to BWV to BLT and then back to BWV!

Will POR transfer my luggage to AoA?

Yep. Do not expect it to be available until after official checkin time.


Sidenote...we own DVC, and we're staying at POR in October. Out of points, and got a little taste of the place in Feb and now we must stay there longer!

We spoke with bell services when we reached our room and it was eventually delivered to us.
I don't think Walmart will deliver sodas anymore. It says in store only and the POR address is not valid for same day grocery delivery for Walmart either. I guess I will check out garden grocer.

Three weeks from today, we start our drive down to WDW for a five night stay at POR! When we last stayed here it was Dixie Landings (I've still got my drink refill mug to prove it!) The excitement is definitely building!

We are heading up next weekend and like the previous poster this is our first stay since it was DL too (I was pregnant with my 14 yr old dd last time we stayed there LOL! )

I do have a question for the "experienced/frequent" POR resort guest or anyone else that may know, do all of the corner rooms in Alligator Bayou have connecting doors???
