*** Wow so there is a lot of guests that wanted to do this? lol The dates thing that is. I am working on it so any more to come in the thread in my signature. Then after that There is a format that would make it easier on me. If you can do yours kinda like the one below in the PM to me that would be very cool. Thanks

"Venomhatch- POR - 3/1 - 3/9"

That would be so very cool, it would make it easier to all the interest coming in on this project.

Thanks to all on this thread, especially Andre and Venom! While I had planned to stay here in May, the conference I am going to added 2 Disney resorts to their official hotels while previously they had none (I had booked POR on my own). In order to get the transportation benefits for the conference, I have to stay at one of these hotels. But I am definitely not going kicking and screaming because they added Disney's Beach Club as one of the conference hotels for a great price!

One day, I WILL see Yee Haw Bob!!

I've done most of the planning while my wife will usually stop me from talking about it due to being on overload from it all. It's our first trip to Disney and I want it to be a great time for the family (and especially our kids)!

LOL! I just told my husband this and he said "hey, grounded, that is a good idea" People who aren't even posting find new ideas on the Dis.

Back to POR related things: Lots of people are talking about checking in on-line, not on-line- to fax requests or not fax requests. Here is what I am doing: Booked preffered location - requested bldg 14, 15 or 18 ground floor room on original booking. I will be doing on line check in 10 days out, and sending a fax to re-iterate my bldg & ground floor requests 3 to 5 days out.

I did on-line check in at POR back in 2010 and check in was a breeze, no line & room ready at 11:35 am - however, I had requested an AB room and we were put in Acandian house, so my requests were not granted on that trip but i did NOT send a fax that time and we are a family of 4 and I know they try to keep AB open for families of 5. We ended up loving our corner room (8220) and location. (very close to North depot)

planning

Obviously I'm just catching up with the thread today. My hubby appreciates all of my planning and he gets very excited when the trip gets close. He also has a lot to do with our dining plans, but unlike me he doesn't want to talk about it everyday. or look at my total trip spreadsheet everday, or the POR map from Andre's site that I printed in color, or my dining spreadsheet.... Of course now that I have my own Planning door it will be hard for him to miss.

Sounds like a great idea to me, perfectly planned. (You can do online checkin up to 60 days out now by the way, if you feel so inclined)

I still say 7-10 days out and stand by it. Gives them more time to make sure they have the room that fits your requests available.

Hi there! I also have a preferred room reserved. Wondering if I should request certain areas. May I ask why you are requesting building 14,15 or 18? Thanks!

go to http://www.portorleans.org/room-requests.php and look at the map of the buildings. There are 4 buildings that are preferred and those are 3 closest to the main building.
