I think I might have asked this before, I can't remember...does the food court have a toaster and microwave you can use even if you don't purchase anything? We are 19 days out and I am trying to finish my shopping list. DS wants me to bring biscuits and bagels for him on our non-breakfast days. I don't want to pack all of that if I can't toast or microwave anything!

Thanks so much for any help!
Robin

I would actually take the bus to Epcot and HS, and drive to AK and MK. MK buses were the busiest and the longest waits especially in the evening, and I think HS/Ep were the shorter bus rides. (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) We had expected crowd levels of 5/6 the week we were there, so I'm sure time needs to be adjusted if you will be there at a busier time.
We're diving this year, and from all I've heard, you'll want the bus for MK. This rings true from our last visit when we stayed off-site. It took an hour to get to our car, having to wade through crowds leaving after the fireworks, wait in line for a ferry, and again for a tram. It was exhausting going home. When you take a bus, you walk over to the bus area and just ride back to POR - much less time. We're planning on driving to Epcot and DHS (if we're in the mood) because it's only a 9 minute or less drive to each, and you can park your car very close to your room at POR. Parking is free at the parks for resort guests.

Just got back yesterday from an amazing stay at POR! We had paid for a garden view and were unexpectedly upgraded to a Royal Room, which was unbelievable. Really gorgeous decor and a great location in Parterre Place. The buses were very reliable and always showed up within 10 minutes. We made it to rope drop with plenty of time to spare each day. The resort was really beautiful. My mom and I hadn't been to POR since it was still Dixie Landings back in 2000, so a lot has changed, but the feeling the resort gives you is still the same. I feel right at home there.

My name is Denise and I am a add-onholic.

My "Disney" vacation has grown and grown and grown.

What was supposed to be one night at Universal then 6 nights at POR..has became....( drum roll, please! )

Two nights Universal at Royal Pacific

One night at Residence Inn LBV ( free )

Six nights POR ( package ) Originally 2 rooms ( 4 people in one room, 5 in another...after the sale it became 3 rooms for well, more room! )

One night at Residence Inn LBV ( free )

Now, I am looking to expand again and moving the Residence Inn for the last night to pre-Universal and making the last night another POR room only booking..or booking a hotel for my pre-Universal stay. I haven't decided yet!

The only thing that did NOT change was the fact it we wanted to stay in POR, we made that decision ( all 9 of us ) jointly. We love the look, the reviews, everything about POR..I stayed in POFQ years ago so I am looking forward to seeing the "other" side. Oh yeah..my ADR's haven't changed ( much ) other than some revamping because I got Wishes Dessert Party ressies the first night and moved my Boatwright's reservation to an earlier time. I am really looking forward to Boatwright's, it seems to be under the rader so to speak.

Online check in in 4 days!!

I sure hope the beer is cold and the hot tub hot at POR because I am going to need it after all of this planning.

Too funny! I've changed some stuff too. Even my DH said to stop.
