    We will be heading down in 100+ days, but......taking advantage of FD. We are planning on upgrading to POR Rvrsd. From POP. I am going to request Prefered bldg. 18. I have been there a few years ago prior to the refurb. Looking at the new room layout I did not see a dresser. Is there ony an open closet for hanging clothes....no drawers? Or am I missing something?

    Even though we are many days out I am sooooooo excited to be going back again. I have had the good fortune of being able to go 3x in 3 years and it really helps me recharge my batteries. Just what the dr. ordered!:banana::banana:

    There is no dresser per se just three small drawers under the Murphy bed. There is an open closet on the vanity area. Check out allears.net for more info and videos of the room.

    There is a few drawers under the tv. If you check you tube I'm sure there is a room tour or two.

    We are going in Sept too for FD, I can not wait!

    Venom, thank you for the fax template and answering many questions, we got the room we wanted. Magnolia Terrace, King, Water view, it is fantastic.

    Andre, Thank you for everything you do, for answering questions here and for portorleans.org. Wouldn't have picked this resort without it and we are completely in love !!!

    I just want to send a huge thank you to our two resident experts, Andrewilley and venomhatch. I can't say enough andre's site, and comments have made for fun planning. I can't wait 6 days until check in!! Now just to get my two girls over strep.

    Venomhatch I faxed the request today and got a very nice email from Mr. Elg, saying we got a second floor connecting room relatively near the footbridge and main building. Thank you so very much for all your help! We got exactly what we requested! Now even more excited. We so need this trip. Between a neverending sick child, and a husband who works very long hours I so need a magical trip.

    I searched the thread for "outlets", and didn't find anything, so here goes:

    How many outlets are available in a Royal Guest Room? We're going to have a myriad of things to charge... wondering if we should pack a power strip...?

    Thanks!!

    I'm bringing a small power strip that also has USB ports. There are 3 iPods, 2 iPhones, 1 camera, a battery charger, and 3 DS games for us to plug in. Better be safe.

    I've tried searching around and can't find an answer to this. Does anyone know what time the first buses leave from POR to the theme parks?

    Thanks!:cool2:

    Phew. OK. I read somewhere that they left one hour before the theme parks opened and started worrying about my early breakfast reservations!!!

    Thanks!
