The Royal Rooms look amazing! I just wish it wasn't more to rent the DVC points for this resort...

So...I have read and read posts about RRs. My TA said we would be fine with SV, said there really wasn't a bad view to be had. From what I have read, it sounds to me if you get upgrade, it's mainly for location? So, staying in SV are we going to have a long walk to food court and parking lot? We will be driving down, so we will not use buses.

Really love this thread...it sends my excitement level through the roof!!!
I'm so excited for her!! My BF and had both never been to Disney. We we're both 22, and my family went down for my brothers band trip and she lives there, so we spent the day at MK together. We we're so in awe of BBB! And kind of jealous that we never got to experience that as kids haha. Thankfully the fairy godmothers we super sweet and gave us some pixie dust in our hair to channel our inner little girl haha.

Thank you!!

Dec 15 POR here we come. ADR's made this morning.
Same thing happened to us! We had two rooms booked at POP (my sister's family is travelling with us) and then my husband got the FD pin email, and we were able to book two rooms w/ FD at POR for our late Sept./early Oct. trip! POR was our first choice, but we went with POP when the general offer excluded POR. You can't imagine how excited we were!

My Mickey Mail came today! My DME tags came with my Mickey mail. That was new. I usually get them separately.

We are at All Star Sports from July 21-July 29, then POR from July 29-Aug 5! Can't wait!

Same here. Both my Dad and Mom got separate emails with a free dining pin, called our travel agent and now we have free dining during our stay at POR. We had decided to stick with POR even though we had to pay for our dining, didn't think we'd be as happy/excited anywhere else and this is our daughter birthday trip. Only "downside" is my parents had to get a RR instead of keeping their standard room. Oh well still saved $$

Has anyone heard any comments on how the 2 week test of bypassing resort check-in and reporting straight to your room is going? Has that started yet? I wasn't sure. We are not arriving until January so I imagine a decision on that process will be made by then. Just wondered how it was going.

Everyone enjoy your trips. Can't wait until it's my turn.

Oh Good. Thanks. I truly don't mind checking in but it might be fun to try just going straight to my room.

Wall Outlets?

This is kind of a bizarre question... I will be at POR in 3 days (i can barely wait) and i read somewhere that we should bring a 3 prong adapter for the room in order to use a power strip? Does anyone know what the wall outlets are like? Thank you so much!

I usually bring one 2 to 3 prong adapter, surge protector, and a three way splitter. you should check out my must bring items for ideas of last minute things to try and bring.

Aren't all of the wall outlets at Disney three-prong sockets, which I thought could accept either 2- or 3-prong plugs?

As an outsider, I've never really liked the small US 2-prong plugs much, they always seem very unsafe and fall out far too easily. I like my good solid British 13-amp plugs!

Where do we find your "must bring" list? I would like to read it too.

Thanks for all your info. You are awesome.
