Where do you keep your laptop in the room? Do you put it away out of sight before you leave each day? I was thinking it would be nice to back up photos every day or so. But not sure I really want to drag it there. We'll probably just bring our Kindle and itouch because they are smaller.

We took a laptop for that very reason and just hid it under stuff in a drawer. It was handy to download pics from camera and phone and it was convenient to go online with the laptop rather than a phone while in the room. I didn't bother using the safe because it was small and we had no real valuables other than purchases and the computer. It would be a safe place to put credit cards and other small important things.

Thanks. Guess we'll think about it.

We normally put it in a drawer.

I would lock it in my luggage. I now bring an iPad that fits in the safe. But when I took my laptop I put it in my locked luggage.

I didn't get the flash drive I guess it's because I don't live in the US. They don't mail MBs to us either, they are sent to our resort to be picked up on arrival. Maybe the flash drive will be there too

The flash drive is just explaining the magic bands and FP+, so I doubt they'd give it to you at the resort. It's a cool chachki, but there isn't anything super cool on it or any info that you can't get from the web or DIS boards. I wouldn't feel too upset about not getting it.

The only problem with that is the TSA can easily cut the locks to search the luggage. On my most recent trip my luggage was searched on the way down and back home

This is what I do with my laptop too, I like being able to download my photos at night so I won't lose all my pictures if I lose or break my camera.

I have travel locks that have a code printed on them that lets the TSA know which master key they can use to unlock them without cutting the lock. I realize that kind of defeats the purpose of a lock but considering all the hoops the TSA make us jump through to fly these days it's the only way to guarantee you still have a lock at the end of the trip. When I got home from WDW I had a note inside my checked luggage that said it had been searched, when unpacking I found a small flashlight, I considered it an early Christmas gift from the TSA.

Merry Christmas

Being a Brit, I always get a bit puzzled by the whole "Happy Holidays" thing but with today being the actual 25th of December, I would like to wish everyone a very genuine and sincere:







And if you happen to be at Port Orleans French Quarter today (as a guest or Cast Member) have an amazing time:

We used to lock it in our luggage in the hotel room. Now we just bring IPads.

No flash drive at the resort, just your bands.

Hey Andre!! Just FYI we booked 1/25-1/31 at FQ for 2014! DH wants to know if you want more pix like the ones we did at Riverside in 2012, and if there is anything specific that you want pix of?

Arriving at POFQ Monday and hoping for a wonderful relaxing trip. It's been many years since I've stayed there, any buildings or areas to avoid when they give us our room assignment? It will just be my Mom and I for 7 night. From what I remember most of the buildings seemed fairly close to everything. Just wondering if anyone has any last minute tips or advice. thanks
