Happy New Year!!

Pofq

Avasmom, we are also a family of three and the room size at POFQ was perfect. The DD is almost four so we asked for and received a bed rail because the beds are a bit high. If you need one ask for it when you check in and they will deliver it to your room.

Are you taking the Magical Express? It is a great service, but the wait for your luggage to be delivered is several hours. I suggest you pack your swimsuits in your carry on ( they have towels there) in case you do not go out to a park right away. We did not pack the swimsuits and I regretted it. We were all too tired to head out to a park at five pm so we stayed at the resort. The luggage arrived shortly after 6pm (we got there at 3pm). We passed the time at first by getting something to eat, checking out the grounds, shopping, but it would have been nice for our DD to swim right away. Sorry for my two cents

Have a wonderful time on your trip!!

Thank you!!Our DD is 4 as well! We are actually flying into Sanford and renting a car, they had a special $49 each way per person, so we couldn't pass that up! But, we may just check out the resort on the first evening, so keeping the swimsuits handy is a great idea!

Thanks also for the tip about the bed rail.

I recently met a lady at work who went to WDW a few weeks before me and now we have our trips in common (as well as this insesant need for all things Disney!!). But we chat about things that other people think is nuts. But it keeps the trip and memories alive!! Now, just flipping through our photos on the computer and watching the video of the fireworks brings me right back there. I hope you can get to go this summer. Do you have children? I have one daugther, aged three, almost four. She keeps asking when we can go back!!



Sorry, the laundry guys have no significance at this point, but I really wanted to try them!!
Thanks I'm going to try for this summer. My GF has a 9 yo son. A friend of mine is coming back today. He stayed at wilderness lodge. i;m shure talking to him about his trip will realy get me motivated to see what I can do for this summer.

Hullo!

Another Newbie...been to DW twice, going back again in March. This time & last, we stayed in a timeshare right on the main street just outside the DW gates/main street -- I'm so not remembering everything right!! It's kind of disheartening not to go stay in a resort, and we wanted to try the mealplan thing, but it's a no-go without a resort stay. But, for the price we are paying (pittance) for the room, we just won't make the leap to stay on the reservation.

Maybe next time....

In any case, my very best friend told me about this board, and although I don't have a lot of extra time on my hands, I do want to "beef up" on the best advice before we go again! Thanks for putting this together!!

Hi everyone. I've been to WDW several times, but I'm researching our first cruise. I found a lot of great information on this site and decided to register. I'm a regular on the Tagrel site. I have a son, Tyler, who just turned 3. He doesn't know it yet, but he'll be a future Disneyholic like his Mommy.

Hi, first time poster here

Just wanted to say Hi to everyone. I have been lurking for a long time, and I just decided to go ahead and register. I love finding out all the great stuff the DIS Boards has, and I hope to find out more. One question--I would like one of those cool countdown timers--can anyone help me out? Thanks!

Ellen
