Do they sell Mickey ears (on a headband, not a hat) and the photo-autograph books in the gift shop at either POFQ or POR...? Thanks :-)

I know they sell the autograph books but I believe the Mickey ears can only be found at the parks and no resort sells them. You can try Le Chapeu over at MK, they have a HUUUUGE selection of ears. My favorite are also the headband kind!

We've never stayed at a mod resort before. I'm looking forward to having a proper food court for quick meals. My only question about mod rooms is where do you put all your stuff? I wish the rooms had proper closets. Can you store suitcases under the beds, or are they too low?

Thanks for this very informative thread!
No, you can not store it under the bed. The bed is on a wood frame. You can store it on the shelf in the bathroom area or on the floor.

POFQ - had the autograph books and mickey ears on headbands. Not a huge selection of ears, maybe 5-6 different kinds near the middle of the store.

Hi, all! We're looking forward to a visit to POFQ next summer. We've stayed at the All Stars and Polynesian, but POFQ would be our first moderate. We're planning on visiting in June and have DD 11 and DS 8. I'm thinking we might want to book a pool room. What are your thoughts on Garden View vs. Pool View?

Pool View rooms are very centrally located in buildings 2 and 5, but only on the top two floors in case that makes a difference to you (the kids can't just run out of the door and straight to the pool area).

Great, thanks. We have a while to go yet before our trip, but DD and I were looking forward to already having our Mickey ears on when we arrived at MK.

Autograph books yes.

Ears on Head bands they certainly did sell last year as DD bought another pair there

You will be surprised that you have room! Our family of four which includes a 10 yr old and a 16 yr old had enough room! The three drawers, the closet area (we hang a fair amount of shirts up) with the shelf on top are enough. We store one suitcase under the bench and one on top. We put a plastic inside of one of the suitcases for dirty laundry. If you really are in need of more room, you can leave a filled suitcase on top of the bench for easy access. TO store more luggage, there is a space between the wall and the air/heating unit by the window!
Have a magical time!!!!

Yes he is no longer there but they have someone new but I can't remember the name.
Checkout. Portorleans.org and it should tell you there.

Storage wise in the rooms it's got more than you think we had plenty of room but it is just DH and I.
