Fullfilling my bucket list, one vacation at a time....

Hi

We are considering staying here for our first trip next May. We are looking at spending 5 of our 9 nights at POR (the other 4 at AoA). I was reviewing some of the amenities/offerings at both of these resorts. Does POR offer something near the pool area where you can order cocktails? We will be dedicating 1 full day of our vacation to relax poolside, and I would love to enjoy a few cocktails while relaxing. I had decided for our pool day to be at this resort over AoA due to the waterslide feature.

Thanks for your help!

The safes can hold more than you think.. Last year I took my nook, and my kids took their ipods. We put my wallet, my husbands wallet, my set of keys and husbands set of keys, 2 ipods, and my nook.

If you go over on the discount codes and rates board, you will see people reporting they have received a pin code for free dining for the remainder of the year.

It is usually a good indication of a general public discount at some point.

Faxed requests

Faxed requests yesterday, hoping for pixie dust, but happy either way. Now to pack (Sat), take dog to pet hotel (Fri), lots of other stuff, but have to work 2 more days . Can't wait for make your own pasta

Getting close to 250 Andre, I wonder if it will get there before we leave

We are staging for our first visit at POR and arrive on Sunday June 16. We know that we want to order from the garden grocer, can anyone suggest a good time to place that order? Also do we have to be there when they drop it off? And lastly what address should we put into the system for the delivery location ?

Thanks a bunch !!!
🎉😃🏊👏

We ordered from garden grocer in December and was great! Check the website for when you should order ( depends on time of year ). You do not need to be there. You tell them when you are arriving and they will make sure the food is there before you get to POR. Then POR will store the food until you check in ( and deliver to your room if you ask). If I remember correct, there is a section at check out where you pick the resort your staying at. Also if you order any alcohol you have to fax or email a copy of your ID to show your over 21.
Have fun!!

Unless of course you wear out before the kids do...

A nice cold beer while the kids played on the beach was perfect after a long park day!
