We are arriving at POR on 9/1, we are super excited. Can anyone tell me if they sell boxes of donuts in the gift shop? I am wondering if we should just purchase a few breakfast items (we always have an early lunch) and just need to put something in our stomachs in the am. Do they also have 1/2 gal. of milk in the gift shop? Thanks for any help.

Yes, they sell boxes of doughnuts in the gift shop. I can't help with the milk sizes though.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Single serves, quarts, half gallons. The quarts and the half gallons were both slightly under $3.

Hey all! We're going to POR for our first stay in November and are super excited! The kids want to know all about the waterside, but I can't seem to find any pictures of the layout or photos from the top looking down at all. The only view I can find is the mouth of the slide and the kids are slightly underwhelmed with my lack of better info! LOL. I've scoured the photo thread and thought I'd as here I anyone knows of a better picture or if you're there could snap a picture for me? I would greatly appreciate it!

Does anyone know if the laundry rooms at POR have machines to exchange dollar bills for quarters? Or should I plan on bringing a supply of quarters if I want to do laundry?

Also, how many plugs are there are in each room? One of the best packing tips I've seen anywhere is to bring a power strip (cameras, phones, kindles, ipads, oh my), but I'm curious about the number of wall plugs.

Thanks!!

I'm having car seats shipped to PO that should be arriving 3 days before our stay. Do I need to call someone to let them know? What is the usual protocol for things like this? 1st timers

Yes, there is a change machine in the laundry room.

I always pack a power strip so the electronics are in one place, in plain view. Much easier not to forget something that way!

HTH!
