Light sleeper here with a quick question....does the air unit have a fan on always option that stays running even when the air conditioning kicks off? If not, I would be bringing a tiny fan for white noise or using my phone app.

We used the A/C unit as a place to put our suitcase (no luggage racks), above the fridge for the Keurig, the shelves next to it and above it for the food and supplies, (and still had empty shelves), and then the drawers under the trundle bed my 8 yr old used (only two of them) for her stuff, and we used the shelf above the closet area for our stuff. We had PLENTY of room.

If I remember correctly, there was a option to have fan on continually. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Oh and on that same note, the only noises I heard were the toilets flushing, and occasionally people walking by our room.

We were just there at Christmas time and had two queens in our room, both very comfy. The kids that used the pull out beds had no complaints either.

Guess where HE wants to honeymoon? He was planning the trip a few days after we got back! lol
It WAS crowded for sure! The day we went to Epcot, we only stayed about 1/2 hr. It was too packed to do or see anything. But that's ok, the rest of the trip made up for it!

So, if you book preferred you could get a river view room or are those only reserved for people who booked river view rooms?

I booked preferred and would love a river view in a preferred building but is that even possible? I just don't want a parking lot view so I guess the other view options in preferred are garden views?

From Andre's awesome webpage, I suggest checking it out.

http://portorleans.org

Preferred Location (Riverside, Alligator Bayou only): These rooms offer close proximity to the restaurants, transportation and main buildings at Riverside. Preferred rooms are ONLY located in Alligator Bayou lodges 14, 15, 18 and 27 — there are no preferred locations in the mansion buildings or at French Quarter. Views vary and can include parking lot or bayou/stream/garden outlooks. $25 per night surcharge.

In fact, there are 16 rooms there which are officially classed as River View, 1409-1416 (ground) and 1441-1448 (upstairs).

Booking a "Preferred Location" room category could give you a standard (i.e. parking lot) or a garden outlook in buildings 14, 15, 18 or 27. It would not normally give you a King Bed room, nor a water/river view, as even within buildings 14/15/18/27 those room types fall into the King/Water/River booking payment categories. Of course you might get upgraded to what is technically a different category.
