    I didn't use it much while I was there, but wi-fi was good in our room.

    There have been a lot of questions about the size of the murphy beds in AB. Here is a picture of my 7 year old in it. It's not a great picture to show the size, but you can see that she has plenty of room. In this picture she's kind of curled up, but not because she need to be. She's about 49" tall and 50 lb. My 3 older kids took turns sleeping in it. DS4 is about 47" and 50 lb and DD9 is about 52" and 90 lb and they all slept in it comfortably. I had gone in with an idea of which kid would sleep in it for the trip, but they all wanted to sleep in it so they took turns.

    Thanks for the photo! I showed my 3 kids the picture of the room from Andre's first page and they all want to sleep in it as well so they will take turns too!

    I think we're going to be there at the same time. We're down to 14 sleeps! Thank you so much for your amazing website, Andre! Your site was what got me and my family excited for our first stay at POR last year and we can't wait to go back. The kids are especially excited after seeing the updates to the AB rooms.

    1. ALLELUIA that I'm not alone!!! Thanks all :hug:
    2. Drawers - I never thought to wipe those down too but now I will ::yes:: I already wipe down the handles on everything, the remote, and the phone and any table we end up eating on (and if food touches the table directly, its garbage).
    3. Yup, I'm the nutty lady on the airplane that wipes down everything and won't touch the reading material. I fly just about every week. I'm tempted to start wearing a mask but I need SOME germs to keep my immunity working!
    4. Comforters - I get really chilly and like blankets. I typically grab the 'extra' one they have in a closet but sometimes those comforters provide extra warmth. So if I need an extra blanket or ask to 'replace' the comforter - will POR give me CLEAN ones? If they rarely wash the comforter, I just wonder if they'll get me another that they haven't washed.

    Thanks all!!

    These are awesome!!! I wondered how your Poly trip went. I tried to search for it somewhere but I couldn't find anything (I'm sure it is my inability to use the search function properly on the DIS!!) I don't want to get too :offtopic: but did you enjoy it??? (Of course, leaving all the negative nellies on the one thread OUT of your fabulous vacation ::yes::)

    So my girlfriend heard I was going to Disney for a conference and I was staying all by my lonesome. I told her to come along if she likes. So she might be staying with me at POR :cool1: I'll have a good time no matter what, but it would be super cool to have a friend there to enjoy it.

    And my coworkers remember last year - that I stayed on Disney property and they stayed near the convention center. Well, I had an AWESOME time and they, well, not so much... So they are all looking at staying at Disney property :rotfl: They also want to go to the Yee Haw Bob show as a group activity. See, Darth isn't the only one trying to lure people to the... Disney side... (total double pun)

    So...flights are booked and I'm trying to book ME...except nobody will let me since my travel agent apparently owns the reservation until check-in. The same travel agent who booked us at the wrong place and who still has me as a standard view even though we paid for garden because she insists we paid for standard...grrr....

    If I do online check-in right now, would that help?

    I'm scared to see where we'd end up if we don't book it ourselves ;)

    Similar situation happened with me and the huge group I went with!! I had to have the travel agent do it but she screwed it all up. The only good thing is that Disney ME accommodated us at the airport then I called them from the resort lobby to arrange everyone's return trip. I spent two hours on my vacation doing this! Now I wasn't sent all the documents since we were all coming from around the country so I wasn't able to review everything in advance. I suggest you know the TA's name and book it yourself. If that doesn't work, make sure you have the TA fax/email any documents as well as mailing it to you. That way, you'll know if it was done correctly sooner than when they send you snail mail docs.

    That's amazing! I'm also from Western MA. Where are you flying out of? We paid $2300 for the five of us to fly non stop in just a couple weeks.

    We're on the other side of the state (southeastern MA) and we're hoping to head down in November. I expect to book next month at the AAA Travel Show.
