Not necessarily when things expire.
That's exactly what I meant. I guess I will try it when I get there and see what happens!

... but as for snakes, yes you might just see a few of them around, just like any other native Florida critters. You'll see a lot more ducks, rabbits, frogs and little lizards though.

Well-played Andre.

My room request just became a 2nd/3rd floor.

Hey there everyone! I am kind of new and late to this thread but we are leaving in just 7 days for POR in one of the new RGR- its a surprise for our 2 daughters. We have a garden view and requested to be near elevator in Oak manor- are there any other suggestions as to location?? Also how are the busses from here and how long a walk is it from here over to the FQ -as we'd like to go there a few mornings to get the beignets- they are awesome! thanks in advance.

We just got back from our trip where we had a royal room with a garden view in Oak Manor. We ended up just a few doors down from the elevator on the second floor, facing the river. It was an awesome room. We could see the fountain out front and the river. I had requested a room in Oak Manor as close as possible to the foot bridge. The south depot bus stop near the lobby was the closest for us. It was maybe a 5 minute walk with our 3 year old. We found everything to be very convenient from this location. We walked over to FQ one day, and I think it was maybe a 15 minute walk, but again, this was with a 3 year old so we didn't walk at a record pace.

Have a great trip!

Dh just booked a "room only" night for us Friday night. We check into BC Saturday and start our package but we are going to be able to leave early Friday and get to check our this resort for future stays. It will be 3 kids (17,14,6) and me and DH. The kids are excited about staying here and we plan to boat to DTD and redeem our voucher to get our PP+ card then explore the resort and eat at chef Mickeys that night. What would be the easiest way to get to chef mickeys from this resort and should I request any particular room location when we check in??

I've seen several posts about a Mr. Elg sending emails to people who have faxed requests. Should I assume my request has a smaller chance of being honored if this Mr. Elg didn't email me? Honestly I am so happy to be going back to POR after a long absence that I could sleep in the lobby on a bench and be happy but just curious why some would get an email response to a faxed request and others don't.

I'm so excited! Thanks to Venom's help I was able to fax in my request today. Only one more work/school day, then we drive down to the dark side for a couple of days before Disney on Sunday.

We are thrilled to be staying at POR and our excitement has a great deal to do with this thread and board. Thank you all, but esp. Venom and Andre!

Another question! We are traveling with another family and I've been handling everything for the both of us. I will do online check-in for each of us, but when I send the fax, do I need to do it twice? The only thing that we are requesting is the mansion section (location isn't an issue) and connecting rooms. Thank you!
