    Sorry to correct you, Andre, but since the spring, there are seperate shampoo and conditioner bottles in all rooms.

    I'm right there with you. I am not a fan of combined shampoo/conditioner. I was worries I would need to bring my own, but looks like I should be okay.

    Great, glad to hear it. I thought it was just a perk feature, but really good news that it's general. I'll update my FAQs accordingly.

    Not really a whinygirl thing. Now if you expected them to have straiteners and stuff like that then maybe, lol.

    Good morning everyone... Just thinking about those up north that lost so much yesterday! :sad2::sad:

    Come to think of it, they started with the Royal Rooms until the old stock was depleted, then moved to all rooms.

    Ah, that must have been where I picked it up from.

    We had separate product during our last stay in August (Alligator Bayou) but I just assumed it was because I was extra special... ;) Oh well, bring me back down to earth why don't you? :)

    I see that the rooms have been refurbished since we were there in 2009. Here's my question . . . what is the storage like? I did not see an adequate dresser like it used to have.

    Thanks for the info on the shampoo/conditioner. My DD has waist length super thick hair so the combined stuff just doesn't get the job done. Glad to hear it is separate products, one less thing I have to pack :thumbsup2

    We were at POR in October - and just to let you know (regarding the thick, long hair) - the shampoo is "extra gentle" and my hair HATED it!!! So glad that I brought my own from home. ;)

    Although, I have to say my kids loved the Mickey shampoo! LOL

    OK, thanks for the input. Maybe I'd better bring our own anyway.

    There is a 3 drawer dresser in each room I believe it was not enough storage space for our family of 4, but I came prepared with closet organizers you hang in your closet they came in great use. We used 2 and had plenty of storage space then. Happy planning!!!!

    With the dresser being changed in the refurb, I suggest to future guests to bring a hanging closet shelves from target or walmart. They usually are $14.00

    Look like this: [​IMG]

    Do you think there is enough storage for 2 adults for a week, or do you think i would still need one of the storage thingys? (yes, that's the technical term ;))

    Yeah no problem and the best part is they collapse down and can fit into a suitcase!

    We are here now and it's plenty for the 2 of us. We each used a drawer and then shared one and I laid all our pants in the shelf above the hanging clothes. There are also a few shelves next to the fridge. I was worried about space but we had plenty of room!
