So 51 is complete? Does that mean they have moved to 52, 53 and 54?

I think we are going to be there at the same time. We are busting at the seams with excitement too and will also have a 3 year old with us.

Milk is available in small cartons in the refrigerated section. I believe there is milk available for coffee also at the self serve station. They do have "real" orange juice and I think apple juice in "juice box" type containers for purchase.



Not sure about the PB?? Anyone else want to chime in?

What I recall from previous stays at POFQ & POR, milk is not available at the refill stations. I'm pretty sure it's not 100% juice either, it's mostly pop, coffee, hot chocolate. Both the milk and juice can be purchased are available in smaller containers. I don't recall PB. You could also consider having milk and juice delivered to the resort by Garden Grocer. Bottled water is also a good idea to have delivered as the Florida water is not great unless filtered. Think about how much of each you'd consume during your stay and calculate if grocery delivery would be beneficial to you.

I have not, but my Dad did and loved it. He had a blast and was tired from reeling in all the fish he caught.

With all these people wanting to downgrade to a regular room, it's interesting that we can't pay for an upgrade for two families to the pirate rooms. We will ask about pirate rooms when we get there

As of yesterday, the kids splash area was still open. Not sure about today (Tuesday) since we spent all day at DHS. I'll check tomorrow and will report back.

Someone was asking about snakes - I have seen several over the last few days, so be cognizant of them when you are here... A few baby snakes on the walkways to the rooms, and 2 larger snakes on the Caribbean Cay walkway (they did try to avoid any kind of human contact).

Thanks for the update! One of our son's favorite things to do is count the number of snakes he sees each trip.

I am right there with you lafemmega. Are they poisonous ones or simple garden ones? In all my visits to the world, I have never seen a snake.I like to pretend they don't exist.

Oh god....NO! I will keep telling myself that they don't exist...

Is the Carribean Cay Walkway the path in the middle to get to the main lobby?
