We are thinking of buying some groceries at the resort store. Can anyone tell me what's available in the store and the prices? For example, we are thinking a gallon of milk, loaf of bread, beer, wine, things like that.

There are photos of the stock on the food shelves at POFQ at http://www.portorleans.org/gallery-POFQ-Main.php which should give you a good idea of the sort of things you can pick up there.

Yeah this is great thanks!
Are the prices reasonable as opposed to having groceries delivered?

It's a hotel shop, what do you think? But for getting an odd few things it's not too bad, I just wouldn't want to do my weekly grocery shop there!

I'm at POR right now, sipping coffee made in the room (not bad at all), and looking out the window at my Garden view room. It's very quiet which is perhaps our top priority in a room. We had a very, very good sleep last night.

We arrived 10:00 AM yesterday, we checked in very quickly as I had done on-line check in. It really does save time on arrival. Our room was Ready!! That also made for a nice day, as we were able to bring in our luggage (we drove), and have a nice lunch at the food court. We're in AB way at the back of the resort, but since we have a car, this is not a problem, and honestly, walking around the grounds here is part of the charm. We were able to come back to our room after a full day at DHS and get to sleep pretty quickly. We're headed to the Magic kingdom in just a few minutes.

Thanks to all my DisBoard friends for help in the planning and in sharing the anticipation.

Glad you're having a good time. This is the French Quarter thread by the way, did you mean to post in the Riverside one?

I'm hoping someone has stayed at POFQ recently and can answer my question! Are rollaway beds (cots) available? We were able to get one at Coronado Springs last fall ..we had to pay $15/nght for it...but was worth it so my kids didn't have to share a bed.

I called the resort directly, and of course, get a different answer for every CM that answers the phone!

Thanks!

Sorry Andre. I did indeed intend this for the Riverside thread.

Wondering if any one can help ... looking to purchase a bottle of rum once arrived at MCO ideally as taking DME (no car). Flying in from Toronto. Any options? Can it be purchased at the airport (i.e. at duty free)? Is there a liquor store close by or accessible by talking disney transport and then walking a short distance?

My first post on the DIS boards! But I've been a lurker for about a year now. I just have to share in my excitement for booking our trip for this coming Dec 2-12 with a FD PIN at POFQ!! It's our sixth time as a family, but it will be my ninth trip. First time at this resort and our first time during the Christmas season so it will be extra special. I'm just so excited I can't stand it!!! I love learning about what I think is going to become one of our new favorite resorts!

Is there a specific reason you don't want to pick one up at the resort gift shop? It will be more $$ but you won't have to travel out to get it.
