Does POR have a gym/workout area? I know we have a lot of dining reservations, just wondering if there was a treadmill or eliptical?

Have a wonderful time!!

Your official room request should really be in your original booking, but I assume you're asking whether you can do online checkin before sending an additional faxed request? If so then yes, no problem, do online as soon as you like and then fax 3-5 days before arrival.

No, sorry. Better cut down on those dining reservations eh? There is a nice jogging route around the resort though, people tend to use that early in the morning.

Really looking forward to our first family trip to WDW......told DH that he may be going home solo and i will stay a while longer with the kids!!!
10 more sleeps for us too! I was getting worried about our ME package, but hopefully we will get it Monday.

Is it a lot faster if we do online checkin? As for room requests, we will be in AB garden view. I'm thinking bldg 16 or 17 would be most convient to everything. What about 38? Is it much farther of a walk to go across the bridge to the food court? We don't have any issues with walking, but would be nice to be somewhere with easier access to everything.

I'm not sure why any one would want to jog on a treadmill or use an elliptical at POR unless it's raining. The jogging path is such a beautiful route even I went for an early brisk walk a couple of mornings.

We arrived on 1/8 and checked in to a standard Royal room. We were assigned 9206 in Oak Manor. Our immediate view out the window was the wall of the room across the walkway - we were on a "turn." Two steps to the right and we had the garden view! The other rooms around us were water or garden view. I will say that if I had paid for a garden view and got the ones in the back of Oak Manor around us (9207-9212 or so), I'd be really annoyed. Yes, they overlook the garden, but also overlook the parking lot.

But our room was perfect. Beautiful, comfortable, convenient. Loved it! I would definitely stay there again.

I could do without the Royal theme, but I don't really like the AB theming. So if we book here again (which I certainly would!), it'll be Royal to guarantee a manor room.

I did have a bounceback and decided to try POFQ next time. At least it's all in the family!
This is my fear! We're booked with a Royal Room - Garden View, and I'm worried we'll be on the parking lot side. I know, really, don't sweat the small stuff, but it's crossed my mind I guess when I fax my request I can nicely ask to be on the water side of the building?

Can anyone refresh my memory as to whether there will be an iron and a blow dryer in the room? I didn't use either on our last stay at POR, but with a new haircut and my DDs having a few outfits that may need to be pressed, I'm worrying about it this time.

There is a lot of foliage and a large hedge so you may not get a full view of the main building area from rooms that are closer to the river.
Thank you! I'm thinking of just casting fate to the room-assigning gods, but if I decide against that, I'll probably request "Upper floor, Oak Manor, North Wing."

Thanks again!

Yay and congrats to you both!!!! I wish we could go before November, but it's just not possible. We can only do a trip every other year.

Better to request what you want, i.e. "a room overlooking the marina and main building area if at all possible" and see what they can do for you.
