The coffee makers use pods not k cups. Sugar and powdered creamer are provided.

Is anyone at POFQ (or checking in Saturday 9/1) who would want 1/2 case bottled water we have left over? I can leave it for you at the front desk...

Shipping info

I know this info is probably somewhere I have seen it but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone have the address to ship a box of stuff to for our check in? Has anyone done it before? Was your box readily available? I would like to ship down a box with our toiletries so I don't have to worry about checking them or putting them all into little tiny containers for the airline. Any info would be much appreciated.

We arrive in 11 days...I can't wait!!!

See http://www.portorleans.org/services.php#Mail. If you are sending via the post office, you should use the PO Box number. If you are sending via courier (FedEx, etc) then you can use the direct resort street address.

Thanks Andre! Have you ever done it? I guess I am just nervous about making sure they have it waiting for me since it will be my toiletries that aren't cheap to replace. This whole flying instead of driving me thing is really throwing me through a loop!

This is our first time flying instead of driving too!!!! I was thinking about trying with just carry on bags but I am a nervous wreck about the whole thing. I am use to being able to take anything and everything with us.

Plus I have heard nightmare stories about missing connecting flight at Altanta airport, and check luggage not making to your resort when you do.

I did, from Ontario, and the box was patiently waiting for me "behind" the counter. They gave it to me at check in before I could ask for it. I guess they had the info in the computer.

Good luck and have a nice stay and a nice trip,

Poussière de fée!

I am right there with you! I take everything under the sun (pool noodle...check, blender...check, first aid BOX...check, lol) so this is really hard for me. On top of that, I HATE flying. I am a nervous wreck about it. Thank goodness we have a non-stop flight that is 2 hours but I totally understand your fear of missing your connecting flight. I have been going over my normal book...I mean packing list...trying to figure out what is going to stay behind. Part of my concession for flying was when DH told me he would make my pool noodle fit in the luggage, lol.

I am so worried about having to put all my hair stuff in my checked luggage because I am afraid they will either lose my luggage or it will explode everywhere. If I have to replace it all it will cost a fortune! I don't "fix" my hair everyday at Disney but I have curly, frizzy & unruley hair so I have to have certain things to manage it in the wonderful Florida humidity. Plus for 10 days, a little tiny bottle of shampoo isn't going to cut it for this mane. Nor will a little tiny bottle of body wash. So I don't know what to do. Ship it or put it in our checked bag. GAHHH this is driving me crazy!

When do you check-in? Hoping for a very uneventful flight and a wonderful carefree vacation for you! Let me know what you decide to do. I only have a couple days to decide since I will have to mail it later this week.

That is reassuring! I'm glad to hear it was waiting for you. Do you know how long ahead of time you mailed it? I'm trying to figure out the timing if I do it.

Thank you!!

We check in 9/15. I feel like the entire packing process has been thrown up in the air. I have become really good at planning a car trip. I should just give up and check a bag. But, I am rather cheap and $50 round trip for a bag seems silly.

But we need hair products, sunscreen, shavers,shampoo etc....My husband likes the idea of shipping things but then I worry about the extra shoes and stuff I usually bring. I am a nut about our room, i have a pop up hamper for shoes, closet hanging thing for organization and the multi-plug thing is a must have for 4 phones to be charged each night. Last year DH and I had so go to California for his job. I put all my hair products etc... in the checked bag, in ziploc bags in case of a leak. It worked great!!

I guess in the big picture this is a great problem to have, we get to decide what to take to WDW.

Have a great trip!

We will be a family of 4, DH and Me in our 40's DD17 look a lot like me but thin, inshape and much prettier, DS 15 taller than his sister and me and will probably be staring at his ipod the entire time. If you see us please say HI

I mailed it 7 days in advance, but as you can read, I live in Northern Ontario, Canada. So I wanted to make sure it would be there if not in advance, at least on the first few days because I sent the princess dress for the breakfast at the Castle and tink costume, both hidden in the box. I also had door magnets for the following cruise on the Dream. (We were at the resort for 9 nights before the cruise.) I mailed it normal post and a "good size box" cost me only $27 something. They said it was there for a few days when I came in. So all in all, my experience with boxes always been very good, both sending in Canada and in US. I've seen at times 2 days delivery, for boxes (unless you try during xmas time, of course!)

Hope it answers your question.

Our Second Stay

Just want to thank everyone for the great posts. I have been lurking over the posts for quite awhile. We stayed off site 3 years ago. We stayed at POFQ 2 years ago which was awesome.

We took a break last year stayed at Wilderness lodge in April this year and now are going back again for MNSSHP in October at PORFQ.

We loved this resort the kids remembered it and wanted to stay there again because of how great it was 2 years ago?!!

Looking forward to seeing the new renovations, while Wilderness Lodge was pretty awesome, the money saved vs a deluxe and free dining is pretty exciting.

Anyway just want to thank all for their great post and get me started on the dis boards !!
