On our last stay all we brought was an iPad and had not problems, that may be because we locked it up in the in room safe. But I also know that if there is something that doesn't fit you SHOULD be able to have them keep it at the front desk in the resort safe.

yeah indeed crazy.. but like I said I am very trusting and still think WDW is a safe place. This past May we stayed at POR and had 5 ipads and 2 laptops that we did not lock up. Housekeeping was wonderful at taken care of our belongings and even made us the little figures out of wash cloths.. they were great.

I know leaving stuff out is just begging for something bad to happen but for some reason we feel secure there. I lock up other non-replaceable's, cash, etc in the safe though.

They tried as hard as the could for. I did end up with a non-connecting room, but lost the quiet room that I had requested. If there is a next time, I will be specifically ask for a room in quiet location that does not have a connecting door.

Oh wow, didn't think about making sure I'll have both! I will definitely keep that in mind when I book my trip.

The suitcase was brand new and the lock was missing.

I've never had a problem and don't bother to use a lock because I only check clothing and things I can replace.

Wish the world didn't have the bad stuff that has to make us think and talk about this but it is a reality. I hope I never have to report in that I had a bad experience.

Just ended our stay at French Quarter and it was great...except for the in-laws, but that is a story for another time. We were in building 5 right across from the pool, not far from the food court and and short walk to the boat dock.

On our last boat ride from Downtown Disney our boat driver said that the new dock at marketplace should be open in the middle of August. Unfortunately it will be over a year before we can get back and use it.

Has anyone ever seen the video of how to open a suitcase zip with a Bic biro? Makes you think...

Sounds like you are off to a great start! May I ask - did you do online checkin? And/or take the Magical Express? I'm curious if that affected having the room ready early.

Hope you and your DD enjoy the rest of your trip!

No, did not use online checkin. We did take Magical Express. Luggage was waiting in our room when we came back from Epcot around 6:30 pm.
Room is very quaint. Forgot how sweet this resort is. Boat service was great heading to DTD tonight but it was SO crowded there and the construction made it crazy. Boats were docked due to weather, so we had to find alternate way back to POFQ. After witnessing a few long bus waits today we opted for a taxi back, but had to walk all core to find the taxi line. Frustrating.

Nice late dinner at the bar/lounge at Riverside tonight. Prime rib sliders with horseradish and blue cheese were heavenly!
