Oh, and if you do decide to travel with a small kettle, it's worth remembering that they are hollow - pack small clothing items or souvenirs inside it (inside a plastic bag of course!) and it actually takes up very little space.

Way ahead of you my friend! We usually pack the tea in it and some granola bars plus the cord. Pretty sure it was filled with pin trades on the way home. We used to travel with a small toaster as well. DH and DS are ravenous when they wake, so familiar morning snacks are a must. Plus they are a serious time saver. I'm just struggling this time with hoping to only have carry-on for the trip to WDW. We definitely will have checked bags on the way home.

Quick question can your mugs be refilled at the pool bar?

Ok so Just got back today exhausted but great time. Our room had the fridge unplugged, however when I checked in she did not tell me. I was annoyed as I had GG delivery there and thought it should have been mentioned, I called down and first person said there arent any and none will become available. I asked why I was not told when I had asked about food getting brought up, he transferred me to a manager who then sent a fridge......This was all done calmly as I was on vacation and new it was possible not to have one. A few more things we used magical express landed at 430pm but luggage did not arrive until about 11pm (fridge around 1030). We were tired it may have been better to get our own luggage. Not sure of housekeeping schedule but we had 1 day they never came and another day they came around 4pm (and I tipped daily) ANd Finally the busses were full many times like 3 year old standing full we boarded west depot,And we did wait over 45 minutes at MK at 2pm??? not sure why but they did bring another right behind our very full one.

Food court was ok I never had the pasta as the line was long and the one time I did wait they lost all gas power so never had it. Boatwrights was one of my favorite restaurants and I wish I ate there twice.

We would deffinately stay again overall it was nice and most of my issues are just FYI not really overall a big deal.

Quick answer: No

It'd be nice if you could - maybe with the RFID mugs they might look into doing it? I'm guessing it would hit the bar takings quite a bit though.

Are the towels out by the main pool early in the morning, like 6 or 7am? It looks like it "opens" at 7am. I know the quiet pools don't have towels so if we stay at POR I figured my husband can grab some towels on his morning jog. But if it is the sort of this that you have to ask for towels and no one is there, then that would be annoying.

Well partly true, not all rooms are affected (only about 50% for example) and they are into the replacement process already.

We were there last week (building 27) and had a fridge. I don't know if it was a new one, but it was the coldest fridge we've ever had at a Disney resort. In the past, we've found the fridges to run a bit warm, so have been reluctant to keep anything that might spoil.

No freezer. just gets cold enough to store items like milk, water, sodas, medicine, and food.
