Sorry if this has been answered somewhere...but I am wondering...is there a way of knowing where our room in POR will be before we get there??? If we call and request a particular room, what are the chances of us getting it?? What rooms have been renovated already? We're going Dec. 30-Jan.6. Thanks in advance!!!!

Rooms are not assigned until you are standing at check-in and the room is available for occupancy.

If you request a particular room, they won't know why you have requested it and will over look it. Also, someone may still be in that room and not checking out that day.

It is not like a cruise line where you are all arriving and leaving the same day.

You can check out the schedule of the refurbs and updated information on the POR thread on the resorts board, or on portorleans.org.

kimmer1850....AWESOME pics!! Was this in the winter? There is something about Disney in the wintertime that everything looks so crisp. Love it! Your pic of the Sassagoula River is stunning!
