Yeah we bring popup hampers also in the hangdown shelving in the closet area.

Can't wait for our trip, my DH says I'm obsessed with planning our first trip to Disney.
You are not alone.. I think my husband is on Disney overload from me right now.. We are on spring break so I have had a lot of time to indulge myself with planning for the past few days.

If you paid for preferred, they are all close. If not, request 16. It is the next best thing to preferred. Close to food, bus, and quiet pool! Have fun

Oh my!!

That's exactly what I'm afraid of

Yeah we would really need to know if you are in preferred or not. That determines the closest building possibility.

Because if you are 4 to the family you can send in a room request fax aka my template and ask for Magnolia or Arcadia Buildings.

But if you are 5 with the youngest being 3 or under you have a chance with the room fax also.

If the family is 5 with the youngest being older than 3 you may be forced to the AB area.

If any of what I said makes sense. Really supposed to be working and I am on here. Whoops!!!

I didn't do the online check in and when I was there in the lobby the lines were just as long equally. So after you hear back on your letter then you can if you want to check in online.

So you are saying don't checkin now? Wait until under 10 days and we send our letter? Is there a reason for that?

Also I presume we send one fax regarding both rooms and not 2 separate requests?

Well I have heard that some say check in but don't put anything in the room request portion at the bottom that may conflict with your fax that's all.

I didn't do online check in for just in case.

About the two room part... Have both confirmation numbers on this fax and names of all staying, you know the details for them.

Just to be clear...I used the template and faxed in the request as per instructions for the mansions. A request is just a request...so be careful!! POR is really like 2 different resorts--the swamp and the big house!! LOL!! I will say that the AB section is very well-themed---I really felt like I was in the swamp!!
