We never had any problems with it but now we travel lighter. One carry on suitcase each, and we do laundry half way through. My wife starts it while I get us breakfast which we eat pool side. Then off to the parks. One day with a late start doesn't hurt, and we don't have to wait for our luggage at the end of the trip.

We love it! But, always pack a change of clothes and some necessities in our carry-ons. Keep in mind it might take up to 3 hours to get your luggage. It has never taken that long for us. Closer to the 2 hour mark. It's much easier for us than getting our own bags because we also have a stroller and two little dudes with us!

Gonna try doing laundry this trip as we will be there 10 days and I don't want to pack 10+ outfits for my messy kiddos (and swim stuff, diapers, etc, etc)!

Lucky to get a girl on the third one! I am hoping my boys give me lots of granddaughters :D

My oldest is 5 years older than my middle and is the easiest child ever so I'm lucky. The younger 2 are 18 mos apart and pretty much drive me crazy.

Good to see you got back to POR!

Where are the laundry facilities at POR? We have only stayed at value before, and those were next to the pools in buildings.

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?

Yes, and POR AB is perfect for my family. Woodsy and boyish with just a touch of princess Tiana! LOL!
That must be the key then, if you want calm, don't have 2 boys a year and a half apart!

You are correct. Only at the main pool.

Will be staying at POR for first time in November. Still a bit concerned about what I've read concerning some having trouble with the buses. I will be traveling with a 1 y/o and 5 y/o, so minimizing wait times is important. Is it really that bad??

Good luck with the granddaughters - my DH is oldest of 4 boys - we had the first grandbaby - let's just say at 10yrs old she is still Nana's princess.

Don't be nervous! Busses can be bad at any time, at any resort. There's no resort that has perfect busses without waits. But, we've never had any issues at any resort in November! It's our favorite time in the parks and the crowds are great.

AB is the best for us too - DD (10), DS (8) and DS (6) - not sure I'll get any calm but sure is nice to have the fun. My 3 are looking forward to taking turns using the Murphy Bed in November. They have a schedule worked out already and everything.
