Returned on Monday from a short 3 night stay. Thanks to Venomhatch for the great advice. We requested building 16, closest to food court without being preferred. We were given an upgrade into a pool view corner room. It was great, my sons loved the pull down beds. We enjoyed the pool, food court, lounge, and surrey bikes. The buses were fine and we took the boat back from DTD. All in all it was a great stay and we were very happy with our decision. Thanks again to Venom and all the wonderful people who post here. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for sharing such a magical feedback with us! Glad the staff can provide the service of what guests deserve. Glad I could be of help.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family as well as all members here!!!

No problem. I am sorry I didn't see it sooner. I get about 10-15 PMs a day regarding POR so I am drawn to that.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

We are not going until May, but I requested bldg 18 on our initial reservation. Not preferred but still close I think to the main bldg? Was this a good choice? Also, how far in advance would I call to make a room request? 10 days prior? I realize we still have a long wait, but just wondering! Thanks!

Very good call on the building choice. I usually tell guests 17 because it isn't preferred but building 18 is preferred. So I don't know if you will get that. Unless they sprinkle some magic. Well they can see your request 30 days or less out so you can at that point send the fax. PM me if you need further help.

I am so excited! We are about 12 days out from our stay at POR!!!!!!!! I am beyond excited, DH and I booked a garden view room, and requested a mansions location. Here's hoping!!! We are going for our 5th anniversary, and thought that the mansions section would be a little more romantic!
Thank you to everyone who has posted such awesome ideas and comments about the resort!

Hi sgarvey1 - did you find building 16 was a better choice than 17? We haven't booked for preferred and thinking 16 or 17 would be a good choice if we are in AB

The shampoo and conditioner were in separate bottles and bars of soap. :-)
