    We will be staying at the POR FQ over the week of Thanksgiving. When does Disney announce the schedules for special events come out? Also do they deliver purchases from the park to the POR?

    Hi William!  Disney is now announcing and publishing their calendar four months at a time.  You should be able to see the park hours as well as the parade and firework schedules starting in August.  If there is a special event such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party during your stay you will also be able to see that timing as well.  All dining and recreation reservations can only be made 90 days out from your arrival date.

    Port Orleans is a wonderful resort and I am sure you will enjoy your stay there.  Packages can indeed be shipped from the parks to your resort as long as you are not checking out the next day.  I always give it one extra day to get to me so I never use this service if I am checking out in two days as well.  Sometimes my purchases have taken an extra day to reach the resort.

    If you have never stayed at Port Orleans, you might enjoy visiting this site to see many great photos.
