Andrea, you are a wealth of knowledge also. I love your website. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge.

I have to ask...why would you rent points to stay at POR? Don't get me wrong, I love POR. Just stayed there earlier this month. But I also own DVC...and it's never a great deal to use points to stay at a non-DVC WDW resort. But, I could be mistaken.

Does anyone know if the alligator bayou rooms that sleep 5 also have connecting rooms? We are traveling with another family of 5 and would love to have connecting rooms....

Yes. You can look on Andre's site and see the floor plan to see which rooms connect.

So I was all set to send a fax this past Wednesday since we arrive July 2nd. However, my mother in law was recently hospitalized again and has since passed away (this past Wednesday). I am hoping to send a fax tomorrow since DH still wants to go on vacation (he needs a break from everything - she had cancer and it's been a rough year). Could definitely use any pixie dust we can get...do you think it will be ok that it's on,y a few days before we arrive?

Yes they are. But some plugs here in the us have two small flats and some of our plugs have one small flat and one big flat along with both having a roundish ground pole. So most of the time the adapters can adapt those plugs also.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, and I hope your trip allows you to take a few precious moments away from the situation to recharge your emotional batteries.

You can send a fax to a resort any time you want, the guidelines we give here are just that, guidelines which seem to work nicely with the resort's work patterns. But no one is going to tear up your fax because it didn't arrive on the exact date that some nerds on the internet suggested.

Andre (proud to be one of the nerds on the internet)

So sorry for your loss, i lost my MIL a few years ago to cancer ... I found comfort in knowing she was no longer in pain. Sounds like you need the break and hopefully Disney may help to take your mind off whats happened x

Thanks Venom. My TA double checked my requests on the reservation. I am thinking that may just have to suffice. I have yet to write up the fax, let alone actually send it. :-/ We'll be there Wednesday afternoon so only 4 more days!
