    Thanks for this review! We're booked at POR for May 11-17, and I've been worried that we were so spoiled at POLY last year that a moderate wasn't going to fulfil our expectations. Feeling so excited about our choice now!

    Sure, but they won't take anything off-site for you (apart from to another Disney resort if you are switching hotels). You'll need to tip of course.

    If I wanted to do a package with FD and then RO, how big of a pain is that to do?

    Not a pain at all. We've done this a couple times due to FD blackout dates.

    Can you keep your room?

    We were able to stay in the same room 3 out of 4 times. However, the one time we didn't get to stay in the same room I did not know about linking the 2 reservations and didn't ask about it when we first checked in. Now once we have made our reservations I ask the phone CM to please link the 2 together. Then upon checking in I remind them we have a second reservation and ask if we are able to keep the same room. Since I have been doing that, we have been able to stay in the same room.

    Just completed online check-in! We won't be checking in until late (9pm-ish) and want to make sure they know we ARE coming. :rotfl: I don't know why I did it so early, but when I realized I was able to do it, I couldn't stop myself. Another exciting step closer. :yay: 48 days to go!

    Thanks so much for the response. No need for them to take anything off site, Disney picks up the tab for the cab to the their golf courses...just need to get the clubs to the taxi, hopefully we wont be miles away and it will be fine! I apologize in advance to anyone sleeping in on those days as you hear the clickety clack of golf clubs going by. :)

    What would you suggest for a tip for bell services? I know the cab driver gets tipped.

    Andre, just wondering if you knew if the new mugs were the same size as the old ones, specifically, the lids? Since the new ones only come in 3 colors, I was wondering if we could just bring along a couple of our old lids to differentiate between everyones mugs. Thanks!

    Thanks! I'm going to have everyone pick their colors now since I know I will want to order them as soon as they become available. I like having everything all together before we leave!

    How many Hot Tubs do they have? and are they all on the Island with the main pool? :)

    If I remember correctly there is just one and it is on Ol' Man Island.

    :) That's exactly how I feel and why I do it. Can't help myself, and why would I want to? :)

    Yes, they do seem to be.

    The RFID chipped ones that they were selling last week did not have the "Rapid Fill" logo on the side, which seemed odd as the All Star ones currently have a large logo on them. I expect that will change.

    I'm back!!!! For FD I was only able to get CSR for our Nov trip. I was so bummed and tried to get excited about it. Well I kept checking the website and POR finally had availability for our dates! After 75 minutes on the phone we have POR with FD!!! I'm SO excited!!! Now to catch up on what I have missed here since Aug 1. I see a lot of Magic bands talk. I need to figure all that out :)

    I only saw one in April & it was always full with adults & kids. That was the only downside to our entire trip. We used the quiet pool by our room instead since it was nice & empty although after a day in the parks a soak in the hot tub would hv felt great.

    Yeah we have thought the same as well. But when we went it was full of teens, literally over crowded in the hot tub. It was nuts, so we also favored the Quiet Pools.
