S/P/D General Public?

Does anyone know if this came out for the general public today? We are Disney Visa holders, but have friends that are not. Thanks!

Thank you! As per usual.... I'm completely losing it! I knew the date it was supposed to release was the 10th, but I was thinking today is the 10th!!!

I think even the Disney Visa cardholders could only book it until yesterday. No one can book until the 10th now, if I understood correctly.

Mansions aren't preferred but I felt like most of the river view rooms in the mansions were really convenient to the main building (not counting the royal room buildings). I think if we did POR again, we'd do a river view mansion for sure.

Preferred rooms are in Alligator Bayou only. The Mansions have standard, garden, water, and river views. Acadian House and Magnolia Terrace have regular decor rooms, Oak manor and Parterre Place are now Royal Rooms. Check the first post in the FAQ for a map and view info.

14, 15, 18, 27 are the preferred buildings. There's a map in the first post of this thread showing the preferred buildings in blue.

23 more days until we are checking in for 10 nights!!! Sooooo excited! We are in a preferred room and I requested bldg 14...fingers crossed! Last time we stayed here we were in a standard room and in the farthest building from the main building. We never really even used our mugs since it was so far. This time we are hoping to get as close as possible! I will probably do on-line check-in in 13 days. Any suggestions to get us as close as possible? And, if you are in bldg 14, are you really close to the main pool also? We never used the pool last time.

My nieces and I stayed in AB 14 and it was less than a minute walk to the Mill, or Fulton's -- it was worth the extra money. The part that was nicest, they laid the grounds and paths out so well that you didn't realize how close you were, nor was there any noisy traffic going by to disturb you in your room.

Yeah I have a video on youtube of our walk from 14 to the Food Court. Maybe a minute long even from the second floor.
