What could we expect? Would love to stay in the alligator bayou section this time.

Also plan on going horseback riding at Fort Wilderness. Have to be there at
9:30. Do you think if we left at 8 that would be enough time to get there.
Plan on taking the bus to MK and than boat to Fort Wilderness
If you've booked Water (Pool) View and also asked for AB close to the food court, they could maybe put you in building 18? But there are only six Water View rooms there, so you might well be further away than that (see the map in the first post to get an idea of where the Pool View rooms are located).

8am should be fine for getting to MK and then taking the ferry boat over to Fort Wilderness for 9.30am.

I read the Transportation board a lot and one thing I've learned from there is that buses start running at 6:30 am every day, although they come a bit less frequently until about one hour before park opening. (About every 30 minutes until 8:00 (park opening is 9:00 unless there's AM EMH), then it should be every 20 minutes.)

Did I miss anything, or get anything wrong that anyone can see? It may not be quite to scale, but I think it's pretty close. Also, do you think there's too much information (text annotations) or just about right?

Andre, thank you SO much for creating these. They're so helpful!! My only question is...where is the coffee maker in the room? Next to the fridge perhaps?

Just want to make sure they're not taking up all the table space with it.

Andre, this looks exactly as I remember it from our Sept trip...can't wait to see it again next week!

Thanks for the great job you do here and on your site as well!

Melissarose,

We will be checking in at the same time then! I have not sent in my fax request because I was concerned it would be too early.

Hope the weather holds for our trip.

Woohoo I just booked this morning! Three preferred rooms, I requested adjoining so hopefully we will all be close together.

What building are considered preferred? Our room will be in AB for sure because there is 5 of us, so the other two room have 2 & 4 people, so hopefully they will get preferred AB right next to us.

I'm so happy we are going back to POR. We had considered two cabins, but I was not loving the idea. After our group planning meeting everyone decided on POR

We got 1st floor, corner in bldg. 18. We booked Garden View and they put us in a preferred bldg! I was worried about space, but there's plenty of room for the 6 of us.

We drove down and stayed in a hotel with all 4 kids for the 1st time. It was a little rough at first but once they settled down it was fine.

Thank you to everyone! I haven't seen it in the daylight, but so far I'm very happy that we chose POR!
That is awesome! We are excited about our upcoming trip and have similar request! I'm glad to know it isn't overly packed with 6 people that is my biggest worry we are 4 adults, 6 year old and a baby!

We faxed ours twice because when I did not get a response I called and they said they did not received it (one week out). So I refaxed (four days out) and did not get a response so I took my chances. They must have receiived one because they had already given us an upgrade to a RR in Oak Mansion. 68 and sunny all day today 74 for the next few days.
