My only concern is the busses - I must stop reading the negative comments! LOL But I just want to be prepared as well.

I'm sure I'll be back with a kazillion more questions within the next few months.
We have stayed here 3 times and really only had problems with the buses to downtown disney, one wait was over 45 min! We definitely would have been better off taking a boat.

OK...wait. Should we call and make sure they got the request? I shouldn't trust my fax confirmation that gets printed at work? I didn't know about this step in the process. I figured once I faxed in my request, I would let them be....don't want to disturb and all that.

Yeah you should check with them also. But not the immediate number that is available. PM time.

Just switched our Jan 31-Feb 8th stay from a AoA Little Mermaid room to a POR Royal Rooms.

I haven't stayed at POR since it was Dixie Landings and the Royal Room has me totally over my disappointment in not staying at AoA (no discount and I refuse to pay rack rate, especially for a value).

I only reserved a standard view but I'm thinking of calling today to upgrade. My biggest priority is a corner room and a location close to the South Depot in order to avoid full buses as much as possible.

What do you guys think?

I would trust your delivery confirmation report to be honest, that's what it's for. Otherwise you're sending a fax to re-confirm what's already in the online booking, and then you call them to reconfirm the fax... what's next, an email to confirm the phone call which confirmed the fax that confirmed the original request? Life's too short, and it's only a hotel room preference at the end of the day.

Did I read somewhere correctly that the river view rooms in Oak and Parterre were some of the farthest away from the main building???

Well I can't say whether you read that or not, but if you did it was wrong. The River View Royal Rooms are on the closest side to the main building.

River view would be closer as the Oak bridge crosses over to the main building. Rooms in Parterre that face the end of the river and bridge near POFQ would be farther.

Good thing I called to check on my fax the other day as Venom suggested. I received an email confirmation (from the online fax service) that my fax went through but when I called POR a couple hours later they hadn't gotten it. I re-sent the fax and called again, a very nice woman checked for me and it was there.

I stand corrected then, that shouldn't happen though, fax confirmations are meant to be proof of delivery. Mind you, it doesn't say what happens to them once they hit the resort fax system though.

Getting SO excited! 44 days (I think).

I am mostly a lurker on here, I have checked out the POR site, just have a question. This Yehaa Bob show...I assume its a family show, being Disney and all, but do kids really enjoy it? Does he play to all ages? My DD loves live music and shows. Is it easy to come and go if she gets tired, or is it obvious you are leaving before the show is over?

TIA!
