So- for a medical need (fridge for special foods/meds) and the VIP cleaning for my immune compromised son- is that something we put on the fax request or do we have to contact the special needs group? I got a form from the special diets department, but I think we can make accomodations for my son with just what the food service places can do on the fly, and we don't really need that much from them! My travel agent said she put our requests on our reservation when she made it, but I'm not sure if she really knows the details of the medical specifics. Thanks again Venomhatch. Only 19 days until we check in!

On a related note, do you know what taxi rates are from POR to the different parks?

Thanks!
The buses start running at 6:30 every morning. They run about every 30 minutes until an hour before park opening, then they run about every 20 minutes.

Wouldn't do any harm to contact the special needs folks on 1-407-939-7807, but a fax to the resort a few days before you arrive would do the same thing. For the VIP clean they will need to assign your room before you arrive obviously.

By custom ones, do you mean in the color each family member selected? ie, mine is green, my daughter pink, hubby blue, son red.

Other than that, the only other thing that was custom was the name imprinted on the inside of the band. Is that the extent of the customization as you understand it? I was under the assumption that the character chosen would also be imprinted on the band

Supposedly there will be Pirates of the Caribbean and other themed ones in the near future.

That would be cool! Ours are just the plain colored bands - can't wait to hear about the other neat ones are shipping out for people now...

Our room in feb was river view royal room and if we could have jumped off the balcony it would have been a short walk. As it was we had to walk back towards the middle of the building to get to the stairs. If you can get a room that is near the stairs it will work but that's not all the rooms.





The princes were there for our trip. But my pix of them are blurrier than my pic of Tiana. And they look fine unlike the princesses.

I believe it is still just the standard colors. My Fiance said too bad there isn't purple. Just pink!

I did read- I actually keep up with this thread pretty religiously even though I don't post much- it has great info-but apparently I missed something because I didn't see my question answered. If I got it straight they took away the comforter and left plain white sheets- so my question is will I be able to request a blanket? Is there one in a closet somewhere? Or am I just stuck with sheets only? If so I will bring my own blanket. Thanks!

Question

Hi everyone!!

Well my sister has thrown me a curve ball. ...I posted a few days ago regarding her family of 5 and whether or not they would be in AB during the family trip in Dec. Since the general consensus was yes, I told her to check out AB, the rooms and the murphy bed.
Unfortunately, she does not think the murphy bed would suit any of my nephews. The 2 year old has not graduated to a big boy bed yet and my 5 year old twin nephews, she doesn't feel that the murphy would work for them either....

Her plan was to have the twins share a queen size and have a pack n play in the room for the 2 year old.

Could we request MB instead and a pack n play for her family?? Would Disney have a problem with MB instead of AB because they are a family of 5?

I thought I had everything sorted out.....

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Yes, the staff was very helpful about getting us a fridge. Our daughter became ill just a few days before our trip and was placed on an antibiotic that needed to be refrigerated. I showed the medication to the cast members at the front desk and they delivered a refrigerator to our room shortly thereafter.

Our guest's health is the most important thing to me. So I am glad they helped you out so fast!!!

My question is how are the ice machines we don't usually use them but I seem to recall seeing them by the soda machines? I was thinking others may be doing this as well with the shortage of fridges. Thanks, Linda
We stayed at POR this summer and had to use a cooler. The ice machines are next to the soda machines. We actually use Ziplock freezer bags to put the ice in before we put it in the cooler. We still get some water leaking into the cooler, but it's better than having the ice melting all over the food. It worked out well for us since we only had drinks in it most of the time.

If the youngest is not 3 yet (at the time of the trip) he won't count so they would technically be a party of 4.
