Leaving tomorrow after school for Buffalo and early Friday, plane ride to Orlando. Luggages are in the car. Reading the last posts on the Board to be sure I know as much as possible.

Too tired to be excited.

But 16 days with the Mouse and his friends (POR + DCL) and 2 days in Orlando may be worth all these preps.

I need to sleep.

See you soon,

Poussière de fée!

I don't understand, my tickers stopped the backward counting 25 days ago. Tickers or not, I'm leaving tomorrow!

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?

They're available all day, but they're at POFQ, not POR.

So I just returned from a week long trip to POR and although there were some hiccups in the beginning but it all worked out into a magical vacation. We requested bldg 18 or 25 (and I know it's just a request but we had lots to do and wanted to be close to the south depot and main lobby!) anyways we got bldg 26, second floor in the back. Doesn't seem far on a map but circling around the twists and turns made it about a 10 minute walk and those stairs are dreadful after a long day at the parks!!!

We also had no fridge (expected) so we used our ice bucket to keep our waters cold and had called to get put on the fridge list. They got us one by the second night and gave us a $15 credit for the first. The fridge already had ice surrounding the whole interior and the temperature knob was broken not a big deal we just drank some of the water out put it in the fridge to freeze and then poured the room temp water over that when ready to drink LOL! Now the only problem we saw was if we left a water bottle sit out it would magically disappear when we returned to the room and they were still half full!!!! We had to hide them I guess mouse keeping are TOO good at their job :-)

Also, to ease suspicions (mostly mine) the breakfast flatbread is a flatbread with sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese and potatoes and was BY FAR my favorite breakfast besides those addicting Mickey waffles I highly recommend

We had no bed spread (expected) and it was literally a sheet, a fleece blanket and one more sheet. Id love to say it kept me warm with the AC set at 69 and the fan on but i wore a sweatshirt and sweatpants to bed :P

We also took a cab from POR to the contemporary one morning and Polynesian another and both times including tax were about $16 with tip!!!! And took literally less than 15 minutes!

All in all it was a super trip, the busses were typically okay but not anything to write home about, a 15 minute wait was the average and by the time all the handicappers and strollers got on it was usually standing room only (worked my core!!)

Let me know if there's anything else I can answer and ill try my best!

Yes, but POR is very spread out, so it could be a bit of a walk from your room to the POFQ food court.

I guess we'll be at POR at the same time. We're in Buffalo and this is the last post before I go to bed. Up at 5:30, shuttle at 6:00, plane at 8:00, DME around 10:30 and POR hopefully before 12:00.

Thank you all for all your tips and comments and questions and answers!
