our room was not purple and gold. It was very nice. We have typically stayed at cbr and these rooms by far were nicer!

Thanks!
White ones attached to the walls. I took mine from home as these seem to take forever.

Hot tea- cold tea- hot chocolate. I don't remember seeing juice but the machines did have a flavor of powerade in them.

My kids don't like any kind of soda. So they would get the pomegranite lemonade or the powerade.

No milk or orange/apple juice in the dispensers, but you can get Hi-C fruit punch and pomegranate lemonade. See http://www.portorleans.org/floatworks.php#Drinks

Possibly time to think of getting a new camera...

Although as I said, for some reason it does seem a difficult colour to get decent photos of - I'm not even sure mine are 100% correct, I was trying to use the pure whites to get an accurate balance.

Hey everyone!! We are here now and are thinking of doing the movie under the stars. I didnt bring a blanket or anything... Will they be upset if we sit on pool towels? Might be a dumb question but I've never done it before... Thanks for any help!!

Just turn up, they'll give you plenty of towels to sit on.

Yes--everyone sits on pool towels.

Don't forget to bring your mug and fill it up before the show. My dd and I planned ahead and bought a bucket of popcorn for our movie night, but there are some nice snack options at the food court you could get.
I love movie nights at POFQ!

We were in Building #1 two weeks ago - the colors were definitely purple and gold on the comforter.

Lights in windows (decorating)

How far is it from the window to an outlet? Wondering how long of an extension cord to bring.

Thanks!

Just got back on friday. This is my new favorite resort!!!!

As for outlets... I brought lights to decorate, but no extension... and thus was unable to put them up. I was in a exterior corner room... so maybe that had something to do with it since we had the extra window .
