    Thanks for the information! DW and I have been searching for good information on this since we decided to fly down this time. (Excited! :banana:) We have always driven down, and wanted to skip the 12 hours each way if we could.

    I feel like I am wishing my summer away. We are going in September, seems like forever away, but there's lots to do between now and then, starting with an ear surgery for my daughter, her 6th.

    That is high. Just trying to figure out if we should order from garden grocer for all our snacks and stuff instead of packing most of it, and buying milk there. Garden grocer is so easy, but so expensive...

    I just did a quick pre grocery shop at Garden Grocer and holy cow. I am thinking I just might ship all my stuff down. Almost every item that I wanted was at least a $1 more. But then again you are paying for convenience.

    Hi All!

    The fridges at POP, is there a freezer section to it or is all just a fridge? I wanted to put some bottled water in the freezer part and use that as ice to keep things cool.

    No freezer section, just a fridge. Post #2 of this thread has a picture of the fridge so you can see what I mean.

    Bummer!
    This is my first visit and would like to see how others have kept their items cold?
    My first thought is just grab ice and put it in a plastic baggy, but I imagine that's not going to last too long.

    Any other suggestions?

    Gotcha. For water, we each have a refillable britta filtered bottle that we refill with ice water from the counter service locations. We don't carry anything else that needs to be kept cold because it's tough to do. I guess ziploc bags filled with ice is your best bet. Sorry I can't be better help.

    Does anybody know if I can bring alcohol from home into the resort? My DH and I want to bring a little unwinding after a long day at the parks and the kids are sleeping cocktail. I've already checked with the FAA and they're cool with it. I want to make sure POP is too....don't want to get in trouble lol

    You sure can. And if you run out of what you bring with, you can restock at the gift shop. :thumbsup2
