Has this changed back??
Last November, I called and added the request to my reservation AND I faxed the request directly to the hotel a few days before check in. I only requested a specific building but I got it so I will continue to call and fax for future vacations.

OT slightly - but -

Do you think that the earlier we get to the resort to register - the better chance we have of receiving a request?

Is the printed fax BETTER than the personal earlier registration?

Hi "Magical Mouse" aka Venonhatch

To I Love Pluto: in February I sent a FAX 5 days before our arrival. In it I reviewed the category of room we booked and explained the reason why I requested the particular row of rooms in that category (only 8 rooms in that section). I sent the FAX at 9 am and had a very nice Email back 5 minutes later telling me that my request was granted. While we don't have significant medical issues I had explained that given our ages we wished to save the major portion of our energy enjoying the parks. We did not arrive at POR until about 4 pm after flying into MCO and getting the Magical Express. Our room was just as promised and we could not have been happier.

Editing to say - oops, I don't know how to correct a typo in a heading - sorry Venomhatch.

Thanks Kathy Z. I will send my fax. I believe I have learned something today on this thread! "Speak up" through a fax!

Using a PC to fax?

Does anyone know how to send a fax using your PC if you don't have a fax machine? I thought I could do it via email but it looks like I can't do that. I use Thunderbird for email. Any ideas? Otherwise I'll have to wait until I get to work on Tues. to send our room request fax.

Thanks!

Yes, I used the following website: gotfreefax.com. I probably used Google Chrome to contact them but I expect you could do it in Thunderbird too. I wrote my letter to be faxed as a Word document. I can't remember if my husband had to convert it to a PDF for me or if I was simply able to attach my word document to the fax request. I did run into one question as I was trying to figure out how to do it but I wrote to them and they responded within a few hours with my answer. It worked like a charm.

Bus or boat to DTD

First week of Sept we have an ADR at 1:30 at the rainforest cafe. We plan on first late morning swimming. I have heard the DTD buses are few to come by and slow??? We would prefer the boat. which is faster?? How much time to give for travel time??

This is really helpful- thank you. Anyone had any joy with requests over busy holidays? We're staying at POFQ between Christmas and new year and really wanted at least garden view but our TA here in UK said only standard was available when we booked a year out (I think that's because it's just what THEY had from their pre bookings- could that be right?).
Anyway, just wondered chances of a tiny sprinkling of pixie dust during holiday seasons from the experience of others? 🎄

Photo here from the balcony of my standard room in building 4 at POFQ which as you can see gives a really nice "garden" view without paying any extra for it.

I booked via WDW who asked if I had a building request so I said building 4 mainly to be near to food court and bus stop. Having studied the maps on Andre's website I reckoned there was going to be enough greenery between the standard rooms and the parking lot in building 4 and it was even nicer than I expected but still a short walk through to the bus stop.

Ok so I did my fax yesterday via a free fax dot com site and received an email confirmation from the fax site. I am now wondering if I should be looking out for an email from POR confirming they receiving the fax? I had seen previous posts stating they received an email from POR so now Im nervous they didn't receive it. I am also nervous about sending it again and they think Im crazy for all the faxes! Is everyone receiving emails from POR?
