    We are doing a split stay ( first 5 nights at Port Orleans and 9 days at OKW) and will be taking our netbook for the first time. Here in the UK i have a mobile broadband dongle that i can top up as I go, and this works really well when I am not at home and need to take my laptop with me. ie: if i am round a friends, or at my caravan.
    Does anyone know if you can buy a pay as you go dongle from somewhere like Walmart/Bestbuy which would be ideal for the first 5 days, and times that i will not be in my room for the DVC internet.
    I would be able to leave this in my owners locker and use it every time i take my laptop to WDW.
    By the way, from the research I have done, my Vodafone one here in the Uk will not work out there from what I can gather.
    Even if Port Orleans have the $9.99 per day option, this is a very expensive way of checking a couple of emails.
    If there are any experts out there i would appreciate your help.
    Thanks in advance.x

    I bought a Virgin mobile dongle in bestbuy (i think) near the florida mall last year, cost $99 if I recall. Bestbuy also have vending machines at MCO which sell them!

    You can get Virgin at walmart now so perhaps you can order it before you leave the UK and have it shipped to the resort on your arrival. I just bought one yesterday and at virginmobileusa.com you can find the details on the topups. They start at $10, I think the $20 is the best deal as it gives 15 hours of usage for browsing. I think you can load the device and then purchase your topups online. This is a prepaid so no monthly contracts.
