    The refillable mug drinks dispensers are in the food court.

    Could you write your messages in the message area please, rather than the subject line, as many people don't even see those subject lines on portable devices. Thanks.

    However I repeat my previous answer: the refillable mug drinks dispensers are in the food court. Only. Nowhere else. These ones, in fact:

    Building 5 facing the grass courtyard is our fav spot and we've been fortunate enough to have our request granted for each of our previous trips to stay there. Quiet, close to pool and short walk to bus stops. I'd stay at this location from now on and be perfectly happy!

    Building two is directly across the gardens and pool from building five. Either would be ideal!

    2 questions:
    1) Can you buy beer the 12 pack or case in the store?
    2) If yes, any idea on cost?

    Thanks!

    Sure, you can buy anything pretty much on property... But it comes at a price...

    Beer on property, draughts are 5-6 bucks a pop...domestics a little more... Say 6.50 a bottle... Take that times how many you want ( Disney really doesn't discount if you want a 6 pk or a 12 pk) so TA got 6.50 x 6 = 39.00.....

    Best to order beer for delivery, go to a store and buy what you need or Hess Station, on property, I hear has a lot better prices...

    We do a grocery stop in route and purchase beer wine alcohol and pop... Along with sandwich makings....

    Some grocery delivery service will deliver spirits, minimum food order required before adding alcohol... Just wont deliver booze !!

    I am so excited about our first ever stay at POFQ - check-in in 38 days!!! and have been grabbing all of the bits of wisdom in this thread to help assure that our first ever vacation (first ever visit actually) with my husband's grand-daughter is the best it can possibly be.

    We are coffee-holics. I am for sure, but on vacation my husband gives me a run for my money and now my 17 year old son is becoming quite the fan as well.

    I read that the coffee-makers in the rooms are now the single serve pod type (soft Senseo type, not K-cups) and that they only provide 2 regular and 2 decaf (we won't use those lol)

    We were going to grind some beans and bring our own to either replace or supplement what was in the room but this news has me considering other options.

    Before I commit to a plan, I thought I'd verify. Did I read all that info correctly? only 2 soft pods per day?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance and for all of the other great info here (and on the POR website as well)
