Don't over-complicate things. If you've already booked your Royal Room, and you'd like a ground floor close to a bus stop, then just ask for "ground floor close to a bus stop" - I'd suggest asking to be close for the SOUTH bus stop personally, as that would also cut down on the rest of the walking a bit, but that's up to you.

Is there a change machine for the laundry on-site, or should I bring some quarters? Or better yet, does it take a debit/credit card?

The change machine takes $1,$5, and $10. No credit cards that I recall.

Do all the AB rooms have the pull down 5th bed? I've got a garden view room booked and I'd like to be in one of the manors. Excluding the royal rooms, that leaves 2 buildings. But there are just two of us, and I'm assuming disney would not waste a 5 person room on only two people? are we most likely going to be put in a manor anyway so I don't need to make a request?

I would make a request to be sure. If AB rooms left and you made no request you'll be put there. It doesn't hurt to ask!

This is a great plan. Disney is the perfect place for siblings to bond without the interference our normal lives offer. You and your friend will be able to relax and enjoy the kids. Wise move.

Agreed, there are twice as many AB rooms as regular mansion buildings, so the chances are fairly high that you'll get AB.

We booked a king room (which doesn't have any view options) but I'd say we had a garden view. We faced out to the big wooded area deprecating the 20's buildings with the 30's. The quote pool was less than a minute walk away. Was just at the other end of our building. So we just walked along the balcony to the set of stairs closest to the pool. Was excellent!

For someone who has never taken a vacation in her entire adult life and never been able to afford to take her kids far away - it costs her a lot to fly them home each summer to see their dad in CA; this will be a trip of a lifetime for them!

Hi everyone, looking for some encouragement. We booked bouncebook for Riverside next year and we have never stayed here. We have stayed twice at CS and the rest of our stays have been at Pop. We now need to stay at Riverside because there are 5 of us. I'm really worried I won't like this resort. I hear the walks to the bus stop and the main buildings are far. Can anyone give me some great pros of this resort?

POR was the first resort we stayed at as a family and one of the things I liked best was how close the bus was to our room! Of course, we were in the closest building (14 I think) but we just headed out our door, across the small parking lot and were there in what seemed like less than a minute. I liked the pool and food court. I thought the themeing was great! It really takes you somewhere else and lets you know you're on vacation. I think you'll really like it! I never thought I'd like the mansions but here we go to the Royal Rooms!!
