Requesting ground floor because I know how tired we will be when we get back from the parks and would prefer not to deal with the stairs. Those bldgs because I want to be as close to the bus stop, food court & main pool as possible. I will be fine if the resort cannot met the requests, which is why I paid for preferred location - that was the most important thing to me. I just figure It can't hurt to ask for what you want most.

Enjoy your trip! we have 39 days to go
We've stayed at POR twice in the last 3 weeks with a preferred room. The first time we were ground floor, building 18, room 1805. Perfect location to everything!! Room was ready when we arrived at about 11am. This past week the room wasn't ready in building 18 so we asked that they just go ahead and find us something as we wanted to dump everything in the room, change clothes & head to MK. We ended up in Building 14, second floor. It was a haul up those stairs definitely, but the location was still good. The only thing I didn't like was that this room wasn't as nice as the room in Building 18. We used the quiet pool behind building 18 this visit & that was very relaxing. Very few people in the pool at all.

Enjoy your trip.

Do you have any photos of building 18 ? We were thinking of requesting it to be close to the quiet pool ? I would love to see some photos. I have searched and found maybe 2 but they were far away and I couldnt see much lol

Yes, and that's why I booked the airline tickets for those dates! I will be looking for the FD offer on 5/6 or 5/9.

Well that's refreshing to see - a husband that pays attention to detail enough to plan a WDW trip in advance I'm sure your wife is aware & grateful!! Good luck with booking, let us know how it goes!

kids services

Hi I've tried to do a search regarding child care and didn't have much luck. I was wondering if anyone knows if Riverside has a anything like a kids club at night so maybe my husband and I could go out for dinner or something? I don't think I want to have a babysitter come to our room. I would rather they have the opportunity to play with other kids and have activities.


We leave on the 14th.....getting sooooo excited!!!

I don't think POR does, but you can use any of the kids clubs at any of the other resorts that do. You don't have to be staying at that resort.

Very true. You can use the child care anywhere on property. We will often drop of the kids at the Beach/Yacht Club childcare and then head over to the Yachtsman or Flying Fish (our favorites) for a wonderful dinner. Long time ago, when you checked in, you received a coupon book. In the back was a coupon for childcare (15% off I think). Good luck!

5 days to go!
I faxed mine in on Monday, I did not get a response, do you always?

Ha! I (the husband) am always the one who the plans the Disney trip! My wife rolls her eyes. This year in a Rite of Passage, I've turned the detailed planning over to my daughter, who requested the trip to celebrate graduating from College. I've armed her with all the tools / tricks of the trade: copy of the Unofficial Guide, links to WDWINFO, this forum, the Lines AP, etc. She chose our dining options but (ahem) I made the actual reservations. My only downfall - I waited too long to make reservations for the Wishes Desert party and they're sold out.

But I am Soooo ready to be at the resort. It's been a long winter here in Indiana. I keep picturing myself reading my Nook, sipping something decadent at the Ol' Man River Pool bar. . . Less than three weeks now

POR doesn't have a kids club unless you count the daytime Pirates cruise. But if you want to go enjoy something for grownups while your kids are at a play center you can still use one of the services at a Deluxe resort. So for example, if you have dinner at Artist Point at WL you can check your child into the Cubs Den while you dine. Each Deluxe resort has it's own service.

I don't think I'd want to hire a baby sitter to come to the room either.

When I faxed in my request for our March trip to POR, I did not receive a response. When I got there, I received my "first choice" of the 4 room numbers that I requested in my fax. So, I am guessing they did receive it :-)
