air conditioning question

(If this has been covered before, I apologize, I can't find it on this board) I've read on other boards about overriding the air conditioning unit because it shuts off without motion in the room. Do you have to do this at POR, if so, how? I don't want to wake up in the middle of the night sweating due to no air being circulated because we aren't moving in the night

I can't tell you for sure if its motion activated or not, but I saw in another thread that one way to combat this is to get a balloon and keep it within detection so it'll bob back and forth.

Just so we can settle this other issue with the attention getters with no life but to stay up all night and stir issues.

This is the cockroach in the tub we found and I killed. Anybody who has been in a royal room knows that is the wallpaper used in the royal room bath areas.



Here is another photo I found online showing better detail and the smaller one is the ones we found in the drawers.

That's great that you are on top of things. Sorry you had a less than magical trip. I'm glad that you and your family are feeling better.

Sorry, this all blew up over my night-time so I've only just seen it.

For the record, Venom contacted me before he posted anything on the boards, asking whether he should keep quiet about his experiences in case it put people off POR. I said he should just be honest about what happened, and I think this is just an unusual series of strange co-incidences which just happened to hit one family. Perhaps coming out with the full story straight away rather than posting hints and PMs for a week might have helped reduce the rumour-mill, but he said was too busy with what was going on at the time - and anyway that's all water under the bridge now and it's now all out in the open.

Whether people feel Venomhatch is attention-seeking or not (as some have said) please can we keep this civil and stop the name-calling. I don't want the mods to have to close this thread down, we've all (and that includes Venom) put far too much time and effort into it. By all means take it up by PM, or in another more directly relevant thread if you really must, as that's your right, but please let's keep this one about Port Orleans Riverside specific questions.

Andre

I really appreciate it when someone comes to the Disboards and posts about the not so magical time they may have had. Everything is not all roses and unicorns and there is useful information to be absorbed in those trip reports.

I always check my room for bedbugs..but now I will check for roaches too. Better safe than sorry. I can not stand the snakes at Disney postings but you can bet I will always keep a watchful eye out for Slytherin's mascot.

In fact, I would rather hear about the bad then to have to hear the " discheerleaders " who tell you to make lemonaid when things go south.


In the end I will take all information, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

By the way, I am still planning on staying at POR in July and I am looking forward to it. I am going to to everything in my power to have a smooth, fun and magical stay.

From POR the boat ride is about 20 mins, with a short stop at POFQ to pick up en route (they leave a few empty seats when the boat leaves POR). Boats run at least every 20 mins in the morning, and every 10 mins after 4pm.
