You're right and after your prior post I mentioned it to DH again. This time around, he said, as long as we have our GPS is he is fine with picking up the car at the airport.

Full disclosure - DH really doesn't like Disney, but tolerates it for the rest of us. He is complaining about it being all the same thing. Can't see spending that amount of money to do the same thing we did last year. So (tongue-in-cheek), I tried to entice him with the thought of getting checked in and heading to Epcot to do all of DS No. 2's favorite things (which we did over and over and over again) last trip. Mission Space, here we come!

Okay...I know, I know...I've got 8 months to go...My OCD kicks in in the fall and I start obsessively planning!

I'm working until 1 today, then heading home to cram in the rest of the packing. DH and I will pick up the kids after school, then straight on to the airport. POR, here we come!
How exciting! Hope you have a blast

When you do a car rental at airport is there anyone at POR to take your bags from the car to the room?

We asked at Bell Services for luggage help the last time we rented a car and they said they would help only with DME passengers. They didn't turn us down flat - they said we "could" leave our bags, but it might be several hours before they would arrive in our room. So I took them up myself (3rd floor Magnolia Terrace). I figured I worked off enough calories for an ice cream Mickey bar, so I had one later.

That's what I am afraid of happening. Oh, well I will just gamble I guess.

Parking was very convenient at the back of the building - it wasn't nearly as tough as I had feared and there are elevators in the Mansions, so that was very helpful too. Of course it would have been easier if it had been cooler than about 105 degrees

We are at 56 days. How do I go about booking one of these for a party of 6? Do we all need to be onsite guests to get a BOG FP?? I'd like to save us some lineup time if I can!

And you think you are special?

I bet if a poll was taken there would be a high majority of people that have been planning obsessively for at least that long.


39 days to go for us!

And I'm already working on my February solo trip plans.

Size of In-Room Safe

Hi Everyone - Apologies if this has been previously asked, but I didn't find it in a search. I was wondering if anyone can confirm the size of the in-room safes at POR? Would an iPad (regular, not mini) fit inside? How tall are they inside also. Thanks.

Ummmm, easily! I have been working on this trip (just 18 days) since May I think. And I am already thinking about booking bounce back for April.

ALL OF MY TRIPS ARE SOLO!!!! Wouldn't have if any other way.
