On my last trip, we actually got our vodka in the Montreal airport, at duty free. Once through security there were no issues with buying liquids and carrying them on the plane. I'm sure you could do that at Pearson?? Just save extra room in your carry on! Unless you wanted an American only brand?

Garden Grocer will deliver alcohol to your room. They have a minimum delivery amount, but you can add snacks, water bottles, or whatever else you may need. We use GG on every trip and are pleased with their services. They don't have rum in the shopping list (just beer and wine) but you can ask for it in the comments section and see if they can bring it. Be specific with brand and bottle size. You will have to fax your ID to order alcohol.

Did you fly out of Montreal to Orlando? Just trying to figure out the logistics. Don't really want to have to pack a bottle in my checked luggage. Dad is particular to a specific kind of rum.

Once through security I can stop by duty free at Pearson (airport flying from) pick up bottle to add to carry-on and continue on to Orlando. Will I have any issues at Orlando. Has anyone done this?

Anyone know what types of rum are in the gift shop? Cost?

This is all for my Dad, he likes a particular kind of rum, Bacardi Limon.

I just left POFQ. There are numerous types of liquor to purchase at the gift shop. I don't know the price, however. But, I know you can go to downtown Disney and there is a liquor store across the street within walking distance. The liquor store has normal prices. Hope that helps.

We have done the same thing out of Montreal in more than one occasion.

Checked in to POFQ at 5:15am. Got a room on 3rd floor of building 7. Checked in at the temporary registration area. Lots of jackhammer noise and activity going on at the normal registration area that early in the morning. Now waiting at the Poly to have Tonga Toast at Captain Cook's.

Wow, as in you were able to get into your room at 5:15am? That's really good.

Sorry to hear of all of the noise...we check in on June 16 and hope it isn't too noisy or disruptive.

We flew from NB to Montreal, went through customs/immigration, and then picked up the vodka on the other side. It was great as the prices were cheap - well much cheaper than in a NB liquor store, and it did not need to go in checked luggage, we just put it in my husbands carryon. We had no issues in orlando.

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!
We are going 12/4-12/12! We will see you there! Its our first time at this resort and in December.

Garden View

Looking for suggestions for room requests. We are looking to be semi-close to main building & boat dock.

Then I'd suggest simply asking for a room with close access for the main building and the boat dock. That gives them the maximium chance of meeting your request in any one of three or four buildings (5, 2, 3 or 4). What booking category have you paid for by the way, as that can make a difference to location? (e.g. Standard View won't be especially close to the boat dock)
