Having looked at the photos on POR.org, it looks like half of the dresser space is the mini fridge and the other half drawers. Is this correct? I seem to remember a similar set up at CBR and POFQ. We managed ok at those resorts, so if anyone can confirm that they are in fact the same I can cross one thing off my growing shopping list.
I think people are more often concerned with the storage room in Alligator Bayou because of the trundle bed.

We were in POR Mansions section for 2 weeks, and we are NOT light packers, and we had no trouble with the room in the drawers.

i wonder if packing cubes would help. i love mine and they help keep things very organized. i need very little drawer space when i use them. they make my suitcase so controllable to.
just a thought that may (or may not) help some one.

Couple of questions:

1. How many Regular coffee pods do they give you per day? (Decaf does NOT count!) We would need two Regular pods per day.

2. Has anyone had an issue with these not being replenished daily?

I'm considering buying some of the pods online and bringing them along, but if they're good about keeping us stocked, I'd be happy with the complimentary ones.

Thanks!
I'm there now (actually waiting in a very long toy story mania line) and there was 3 reg pods when we checked in.

I don't understand the reference to trundle beds. There haven't been any in the AB section since the remodel. There is a murphy bed now. We were there in April & didn't have storage issues in AB.

Glad she has the wheelchair, that will keep exhaustion at bay!
Thank you for the info. TA said she would get it noted on reservation, but I will try the fax too

I am worried this whole year is going to be like that, we booked in Jan for May, and that took forever, my wife has already booked vacation for Next May .... this is going to take forever !!!

Hope you still get to enjoy the summer, I know you will enjoy sept
But definately worth the wait!
Thanks, I get to sleep-in during the summer so I know will enjoy that

Normally the room is stocked with at least two Regular and two Decaf, which should be replenished daily. You can always ask for more though.

Someone said that the in-room pods are now Joffrey's coffee, but I've not had that confirmed by anyone else yet.

I can confirm it is Joffrey's coffee, and we received 3 pods at check in.

Is there an ice cream station at POR? I can't remember if they had one or not. I only remember the magic bars.

I can confirm that the regular coffee at ASMu Family Suites last week was Joffrey's. Decaf was still Cuisinart. It won't be long before all resorts switch to Joffrey's.

Also wanted to add that i read more about the resort and from what i read it appears that since there are 5 of us in my party our room will be in Alligator Bayou. Howver from the pics i saw it doesnt look as if there is a lot of storage. Where does everyone empty their suitcases? We will proably have a lot since there are so many in our party and we are there 10 days????
We had five of us for 10 days as well. We managed only one checked bag going to and from WDW. We each had carry-on rolling luggage, and a backpack or tote bag. We put the luggage on top of the shelf in the " closet area" and put smaller bags inside larger ones. We had things in drawers, took a closet organizer, and asked for extra hangers. We did not live out of our suitcases.

P.S. we did laundry 3 times. Took a few Tide pods with us.
