Quick question for anyone who has attended the movie night on the lawn. What did u bring to sit on? We are flying and don't feel like packing a blanket and didn't think the resort would like me using theirs.

They will give you towels there (they prefer doing that rather than having guests use room towels to sit on).

Thanks for the picture Andre. That is a small safe but should be adequate for cell phones and an i-pod at least.

When we were there this January 2012 they were doing hair braiding but only at the Riverside, right outside the main building lobby doors.

We were slated to stay at ASMU in August (12), but when I called to check on how much it would cost to upgrade to POFQ, it was only $300 more ~ SO not only is my son (8yrs) going to be surprise by the entire trip, my daughter (16yrs) is going to be surprised at the secret switch of the resorts! Now we will have stayed at every moderate, all the values (except AoA), Ploy, and OKW. Can't wait for our trip in 5 weeks!!!

Even within the 45 day period, Disney are usually more than happy to take extra money from you in terms of upgrades and adding days, etc - they just don't want you to cancel.

Just booked DD and me at POFQ for her 16th Birthday in December!! It's a surprise for her so I am expecting it to be really exciting! I originally wanted to go on her Birthday, but I couldn't pass up the free dining, so I was able to get that by checking in on the 13th. We have stayed at POR, but now to familiarize myself with POFQ......

I was just wondering, do all of the safes come with a dollar bill in them? If you ask for a perfered room, do you get a twenty?

As far as I'm concerned, ANY dollar bills are important!
