Server issue, I've logged a fault ticket (they have not taken payment for the annual server fees and then put the domain on hold, even though I updated the account a week ago).

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?

Turns out they send out a notification email for an annual server account payment problem (fine, it just needed an expired card number to be updated, which I duly did at the time) ... however they put the domain status on hold after 7 days, although they don't actually try to recharge the payment account for 15 days.

Fixed now anyway, I just asked them to charge it now rather than hanging around for another 8 days. Doooooh, stupid or what!

Great list. Thank you for sharing. We just made reservations for POR for 9/22-9/27. This will be my son's first trip to WDW, my third but first time staying at a WDW resort. We are very excited.

No problem, some items obviously would be best for those who drive down, but a lot of the items listed are easily packed for flights down. But I can't take the thanks alone really. It is a collective list from all of the great members and fans here.

Hello, we have a one night, room only reservation on Sept. 28 in a Royal Room. My DD10 really wanted to stay in one, but DH wanted a deluxe resort, so this is the compromise.

We are not going to the parks that day. Arrive around lunchtime. Planning pool time, Downtown Disney and I thought a carriage ride would be fun. Do I need to reserve th carriage ride in advance?

Thanks for the great information on this thread! I love POR!! I think I am as excited about the RR as DD!!

Probably not very far in advance, but I wouldn't suggest just turning up on the day and hoping.

Ok.....
So visiting in 28 days.
Am a DVC member with no points left, so no access to full kitchen, which we are used to.
I was wondering if the food court at Riverside has a microwave that we can use?
Any help would be much appreciated.

It does, yes. And a toaster.

Yippee, just booked my trip for November, got a free dining pin and Riverside opened up for the dates we wanted again! I've never stayed at POR before, I hope I like it, a friend and I are going to stay in one of the Royal rooms.

I hope I like it as much as I loved Coronado Springs last year. I wanted to stay there again, but no availability at all for our dates. I've heard good things about POR, so I'm not worried.
