The people going through regular check-in were going much faster.)

As far as your room requests being granted: You are more likely to get your room request if you do the regular check-in. With online check-in your packet and key card are ready to go; they would have to redo everything if you needed to switch rooms. Plus someone who recently did online check-in said their room request was not granted. And the CM told them if something did open up, that they would be charged a fee to change rooms. Sounds like Disney is discouraging online check-ins from switching rooms.

Hope this helps! On my next trip I'm going to do regular check-in.

Thanks for the helpful information. Was not sure on how we were going to do check in. We will be there early so regular check in looks like the route we will go.

Going there with DH in October.
Thinking about online check-in
Is it possible to add different CC to each Keycard? Or has it to be one for both of us?

I think it's one credit card per room, not per keycard.

You can use a credit card pretty much anywhere in Disney though.

I was wondering if someone could tell me how I can make a room request? I booked on-line with a pin and saw nowhere to make a request. I'd love to ask for a room on the top floor if I can figure out how. Should I call?

Now back to reading the thread. It's huge which is wonderful.

Hello Plano Girl - RHMH from Fort Worth. Dont know if you remember me on the board from last year. We'll be staying at POFQ July 14th though July 21. Happy day to you.

We are waiting to buy our MNSSHP tix until we arrive. Once we do arrive, though, can I just purchase these at the hotel front desk or is there somewhere else I need to go to do so?

TIA

All of the guest rooms at both Port Orleans French Quarter and Port Orleans Riverside should now feature the new Cuisinart dual-pod coffee makers, which have gradually replaced the old 4-cup filter machines over the past month or so.

These new units can make two cups of coffee simultaneously, using coffee pods which are inserted into trays through which hot water is passed. Free pods are supplied, which will be replenished daily by housekeeping.

Yes it has been answered a few times. Yes, there is space.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

I have short, fine, fairly straight hair and it was fine for me. But I have low fuss hair. If you have thick hair or need to do any kind of styling other than point and shoot, I'd bring your own.

Small square dorm fridge. Will hold some basics with no freezer section. I put a half gallon of milk, some water/soda bottles, and a few small leftovers.

Subscribing . After what felt like a thousand hours of research, I decided on POFQ for my DD's sweet 16 birthday trip. First time at this resort and actually first time moderate, but I'm really looking forward to it. I love the fact the resort is smaller, although DD is a little apprehensive about having our door open right up to the outside. I booked a riverview room with no specific requests, but I think I may ask for 3rd floor when we get there. Guessing that would likely mean less foot traffic and ease DD's concerns a little bit anyway. We're booked for the first night at All Star Music and I believe Disney will take care of moving our luggage. I'll just do regular check-in when we get over to POFQ. Not sure, but I think we'll probably go straight to one of the parks that morning anyway and come back for check-in and a break during the afternoon hours.
