Congratulations! DH and I are headed to POR in December...I was hoping that we'd be celebrating 100 pounds lost between the two of us...well, he's lost 73 so far and I've lost 25 so we're 2 pounds away with another 2 and a half months still to go!

Hey POR experts, how much is a cab from CR to POR? And from POR to the Outlet Mall on Vineland?

I am trying to weigh the cost of a rental car($150 for a week) vs taking a cab a couple of times and using buses the rest. In my last few trips buses have been fine except end of the night after MNSSHP. I was thinking of using cab those nights.

TIA

Royal room garden view opened up

So I caved and grabbed for the little bit more a night...could not get it for my Nov 15th trip and suddenly for the heck of it I checked and it was there today...I have 7 and 9 year old girls so I think they will like this type of room...Is there one building better than the other or basically the same I know they are located in two mansion buildings.

Thanks

We would like to take the boat to Downtown Disney to visit DisneyQuest. It drops you off on the opposite end from DisneyQuest, right? Will the boat continue on to the other end, or do you get off and take the internal DTD boat to the DisneyQuest end? (I know you can also walk there. lol )

The boat only makes that one stop in downtown Disney, then it heads back.

Everyone seems to request Oak Manor as it looks closer to the bridge. IMO Parterre is just as close and I think the garden and fountain is far prettier. Plus it has a "throne" seat right in front of the main stairwell.

Please stop licking your monitor. It's hard to clean the smudges off, and electrocution sounds painful.

Hi freckles

The boat from POR will drop you off at the dock that is located on the Market Place side of Disney, right near Rain Forest Café.
I believe there is also an "internal" red flagged boat that travels between that dock and the other dock located in West Side (where Disney Quest is located) that you can take. Or, you can walk.
I am not sure if the internal boat still makes a stop at the Pleasure Island dock or not? Maybe someone else here knows.

Question Microwaves

What are the chances of getting a microwave? Must you ask for one and is there an extra fee?
