Unless it's changed in the 3 years since I went, I have pictures with the Fab 5

From reading this board, I think my room request will look like this: a room in the northern wing of Parterre, on the second floor away from the stairs. Am I right in imagining that the stairs have more traffic/noise issues than the elevator?
Sounds like a good request. The stairs aren't too bad unless you are directly in front of them, and then on upper floors you get a fair few people walking directly 'towards' your room as they walk up the stairs. The worst noise would be from occasional suitcases on wheels or luggage trolleys banging up and down them though. We had a River View room just next to the stairs in Oak Manor and it wasn't a problem though.

I would strongly suggest making sure your request is in your original booking if you can (just call them to get it added). That's the 'official' way to do it, so if the fax thing goes wrong for any reason they've still got the info anyway. You do online checking via the Disney website, https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/plan/ and using My Reservations or My Disney Experience to view your booking info. Which version of the website you use will depend on what country you are connecting from.

I'd definitely take them with you, they'll have a great time.

(I think your other questions have already been answered)

Buses commence around 6:30am, but the full park service doesn't start until about an hour before park opening time. There are earlier buses to service character meals though. Let the driver know where you are going as they can sometimes vary the route to help out if there are only a few passengers on board.

Arcade question

When you turn in the voucher for an arcade card, can you only use it at the arcade in POR, or can you use it at other resorts and the arcade in MK? We have an ADR at Kouzzina our last night, and I'm sure the kids would love to play in the Boardwalk arcades. Also, if we could use them outside the resort, we'd probably buy a second card so they don't have to share. Thanks!

10 days until we arrive!!!!

When we were there in September it didn't seem to matter which one we sat at waiting. They were always hit or miss. The main bus stop in front of the food court is probably your best shot at getting seats, but beware of the rush when the bus pulls up. If the bus is full, usually there are nice men who will give seats up for ladies or children.

I had them ship water and other small goods to the resort last year. I ordered about three weeks out, they shipped very quickly. They sat at the resort for about a week and a half, but it was fine. I had to call bell services or something of the sort when we were in our room, and after pulling teeth it was delivered. It was a problem on POR's end for me....but that was just when I was attempting to get it to the room.

Remember that only applies when the South stop is the first stop at POR. If the bus has already gone round the West, North and East depots before picking up at South (e.g. most MK buses) then there could be a number of people already on the bus when it arrives at the South Depot.

So its not a grocery delivery service where I can order online and have them deliver it same day then? Is there any other service like that?

I would use the South depot. It is the main stop, just outside of Fulton's gift shop. I always use this stop, I believe it is the first one.

Thank you both. We'll try to be at the main stop. That's good information. Hoping our week will be a slow one. Extra bus stops has me thinking I should have done FQ, but we wanted to try the royal guest room. I think we'll be able to manage.

We used Garden Grocer in October. They're not the cheapest (though I don't know that there's a good option in that respect), but we got everything we needed, and they delivered it to POR the day we arrived. They actually called me to tell me it was at bell services within about 10 minutes of the 2 hour window they gave me starting! There was a mistake with our order, but they came and fixed it right away. It's an option you might want to look at!
