So does the resort really make you feel like you are in Song of the South or Splash Mountain? SM is my all time favorite ride.

Have you thought about contacting them and asking? That would have been the first thing I would have tried to be honest. The phone number is in the first post of this thread.

68 days and counting til our FIRST Disney trip!! One question - we arrive on our first day at noon and have an ADR at Chef Mickey at 6:00. I'm pre ordering PP+ and would like to get that before our dinner. What's my best plan of attack? Boat to DTD to get my PP+, then is there a bus from there to CM? OR do I take a bus to MK, get my PP+ and walk to CM? And how long would either of these take?

Ok, I guess that was more than one question...

I always have a printout of my reservation with me but I have never needed it. All you will need is a photo ID. (I believe it needs to be the primary person on the reservation who checks in.)

THanks!!

Andre or Venom? Any ideas? Thanks!

I will let you know in 18 days !!!!

Seriously though, its one of the things we wondered about, we LOVED CSR, and we wondered if it would feel elegant and resort like, or if it would feel hokey and Splash Mountain like (glad that you love SM, but its not one of our favs).

Also the reason we are worried so much about AB vs Magnolia Bend, but hey, we are going to be at Disney, its going to be great, and its going to be an experience either way. I guess half the fun will be deciding for ourselves what POR feels like to us

The voucher can also be picked up at the Poly and GF, which would be a lot easier to get to and then get to CM than DTD.

Buses start running at 6:30 every morning, so you'll probably want to get that first bus because that early, if you miss the first one, you'll probably have to wait half an hour for the next one, which might be cutting it close.

Oh my gosh!

Andre and Venom: Thank you for responding quickly to my question about whether the text of the fax indicating "we're coming in two weeks" or the 5-6 day mark for when to fax is accurate. As it turns out, I asked the question twice, I discovered, and had it answered by both of you.

I woke up at 8AM (EST) this morning, marking the five day point for our arrival. I used GotFreeFax.com, as suggested in the beginning of the thread, and e-mailed a PDF copy of the fax document I made (which turned out similar to the "template"). I received an e-mail from the room inventory manager about forty minutes after I faxed it!

The e-mail confirmed my requests and that they were able to accommodate all of them! I was never expecting all of them to be accommodated, since I had a few (the request to be in Alligator Bayou was the only really "important" one). Beyond that, they had some extra space in the "preferred" location and squeezed us in there. It's such a great start to our trip and it hasn't even happened yet.

I just hope that I didn't seem really needy. In reality, we only wanted to be in AB and would've put up with any room they could put us in. What we received, though, was a second-floor, corner room in the preferred area.

I'm thrilled with this type of attention that they're able to provide at no cost to their guests. It's really exciting. I've been smiling all day.
