At the last two resorts we stayed at (WL and YC), the resort did our boarding passes without us asking. We flew Southwest one time and Jet Blue the other.

We flew Southwest and did use the Early Bird Check In. I assume they had our info from when it gave it to them for the Magical Express. I certainly never gave them any specific account info and they were able to do it. Super convenient!

We'd be happy to have it! Not checking in until Sunday the 15th though, I don't know if they'll hold it that long. Maybe someone else who is checking in before we are would like to have it. Very nice of you to offer!

Towels are at the pool. Not sure about the luggage carts as our stuff was taken to and from by bell services.

Yes, but not self-service, you'd need to get Bell Services to help you.

Quick Questions

Hi! The trip is getting close (or closer anyway!) and I have a few quick questions! I remember reading that the washers switched over to HE. I usually pack the pods that we use at home but these aren't HE. Can they still be used? If not, how much is it to buy laundry detergent there? (I'll snag HE pods from my mom to pack if they're outrageous to buy!)

Also, we will need a portable crib. If I call now and note the crib request, will it be in the room already or should I just request it when we check in (around 8:30pm)? And if he refuses to sleep in there, there's bed rails available too right?

Thanks!

From the UK so I've no idea what HE is but I did use the detergent from the machine in the laundry as below.

Thank you! That's much cheaper than I was expecting! I missed that post...sorry! (And I "think" HE is high efficiency? I just know some of them need a fancy HE detergent!)

Can we say food issues?

We've had our passes printed at Disney. I had done the checkin myself on my phone but I just gave them my last name and conf code and they printed them right out.

Could one of our current or soon-to-arrive POFQ visitors do me a favour and get some snaps of the menus in the food court for me? Just smart-phone camera pics of each TV screen would be fine, and email them (to admin(at)portorleans.org) via the resort Wi-Fi or when you get home.

I did a full update at the start of Aug, but POR had a few menu and price changes at the end of Aug (now listed) and I just want to check that POFQ is still correct too. Ideally, a full set of pics for breakfast, lunch and dinner would be perfect - but whatever anyone can manage would be great too.

Thanks!

Andre
