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?

I had no idea that the RR didn't have ceiling fans, what's up with that?

Guess we'll be packing the fan.

Got home late last night from 8 nights at POR. Had a wonderful time. With regards to the fridge situation...we did not have a working fridge and no note or anything in the room informing us. When we arrived home, we had a letter in the mail about it "to inform us PRIOR to our visit". It was dated with a generic "August 2013". No big deal but I did find it amusing.

So frustrating because our littlest is only 3 (still small enough for a pak'n'play even), and it would be so easy to squeeze into one room at Pop, but we're supposed to do 2 over there...
How did you get booked at PoP with a family of 5 when your youngest is already 3? My first trip dates (Nov) were after my youngest turns 3 and I couldn't book pop at all because of us being 5. Then we changed our dates to Oct. for dh's work and she will still be 2. I could book POP then. Changed to POR fd anyways though for such a small cost.

We got back last week from POR and we had a letter from Disney about the fridge too that I thought was funny.

Andre, LOVE the panorama of the Oak Manor court yard. We were there just after you, or maybe even overlapped but that court yard is a favorite of mine and I spend a bit of time there. Thanks!

I've completed all of the variants, plus HQ versions, of 11 panoramas now, and I'll link them all up tomorrow (just add "_HQ", or use the .mov extension, with the above filenames in the meantime).

Thanks Andre. They are beautiful. I look forward to the rest

FPP - Happy, Happy, Happy

Been checking MDE (everyday - several times a day) on my computer and no FPP or MB. For some reason checked the app on my I-pad about an hour since I looked on my computer and saw I had a new menu item called FastPass+. Clicked it and now all Fast Passes made for entire stay Oct 5-13th. Still no MB's but I must have patience grasshopper 0

Fax number for POR not working?

I just tried to fax over my request and keep getting an error message of 'the number you have reached is out of service'. I am using the 407-934-5777 fax number. Anyone else had trouble or know of a different number to use?

Thanks!

Is this magic band and fp+ test going to be happening at POR through November? We check in November 22. Just curious if we might be part of this.

We have two rooms booked at POR RGR River View for Thanksgiving. It will be me, DH, daughter and two grandsons; 10 & 5.
We always ask for connecting rooms and so far have gotten them. I was looking at the map on PO.org and couldn't figure out where the connecting rooms are.
Are the chances with our room location and view, make our chances really slim to get this request? We are getting FD and so far haven't been able to get 2 rooms with any other location at PO.
