Deelovesdis had also added a huge stack of local area coupons to bin #2 (silver bin) -- we didn't get to use them but thanks for adding them. so generous!

The bin was TOTALLY full, so I could not add more than a couple of bottles of water and a new Mickey luggage tag to it. The luggage tag was hopefully something another DISer could take home as keep. KFillion -- did you end up locating the bin during your stay?

Anyway, while Bell Svc didn't know what I was talking about when I asked to pick up the bin, the very nice bellman (Reuben, young, like early 20s at most) let me go into the luggage room and I spotted it straight away. Typical plastic lidded storage bin with "DIS" written in black marker on the side. Grey color. Name on white paper taped to top. They deal with that bin (as well as bin #1 and #3) on pretty much a weekly basis and many of the bellmen don't know what it is -- I find that so odd. It isn't like a suitcase, which is 80% of what's in that room, nor a paper delivery box (the other 19% of what's in that room). I know other people have also had Bell Svcs tell them that there's no bin in there, but there most definitely is!

Anyway, thanks for doing this whole Pay It Forward thing, DISers! It was nice to have staples as basic as salt and pepper. Very useful!

We did find it, about 6 days into our stay. We didn't end up using anything, I added some tea to it, but the bin was so full I could not put anything else in.

It is not located at the front desk. You need to go to the luggage room which is to the left of the main entrance when you come in. Took awhile to track it down. Thanks DvF Diva for directing me.

When we got to Orlando we hit up a walmart to get some food. I purchased extra toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, cleaning supplies as we were there for 10 nights and I didn't want to run out. It was a waste of money, there was plenty of supply in the room. We ended up putting it all in the bin on the main floor of the tower and it gets donated to a local charity. So don't waste your money on those items.

we're signed up for bin #3 in a few weeks! I have a question...looks like the next person on the list isn't until May. Is it ok to leave the bin there for 2 1/2 months? What if someone else gets signed up for it after we leave? Do we leave the name for the next person anyway?

Just leave it for the next person. If someone does ask for it, I will give them the name it's under

All the info is in post #1. Let me know if you have any questions.

Each bin is going to have something different in them, so it really depends which bin you get.

Mostly there will be dish and laundry soap, maybe paper products, sometimes sunscreen and pool toys. We've seen ponchos, crockpots, food and drinks, AAA parking passes, coupons etc. It's almost like Christmas when you pick up the bin because you don't know what you are going to get!
