Need a POR Expert on this one. I got a great pin code for this summer. Trouble is only POR available, not POFQ where I am familiar with.

1. I booked a RIVER View at POR. Any idea what buidling this might be?
2. Are the POR River View buildings refurbed yet?

I read thru the thread quickly and see the different buildings named and am just clueless. I could bore you to tears on all things YC/BC but am a fish out of water over here! :

I could ditch the pin and move over to POFQ under the triple A savings. And have a garden view there for around 85 more for 3 nights.

Iw ould love to try POR if I get an updated room...SOOOO any advice for me would be appreciated. I got in early June...

Not long for you now
My dad is actually the one who got us all interested in WDW. He kept telling us how great it was, but I wasn't interested back then. One one-day visit to MK sold me forever.

Thanks Andre

Sooooo, lets do a quick roll call of all those about to go/book POR so i can get excited for you
We arrive at the Port next Wednesday 4/11. We'll be celebrating DD's 15th birthday by staying at MK until 3am on 4/15. ADRs at PTC, CP, Sci Fi, and Tony's.

I booked a standard view and have not made any room requests yet. I'm thinking of sending a fax and asking for a refrubed room.

I've previously stayed at Pop Century and All Star Movies and the bus stops from the park back to the hotel were sooooo far away! Are the bus stop lines for Port Orleans Riverside any closer to the parks main entrance? That was a big draw for a moderate resort for us.....must be closer to the entrance to cut down on a little bit of walking!
It varies. IIRC the POR line is further away at DHS and maybe a tad closer at the other parks. Don't expect any big difference one way or the other

I'd add gift cards right off bat but maybe start with just a few and than add more as you spend some of ones listed on account. or say put 500.00 on account right away than after that is almost gone add more. I have never had it happen but I can imagine fisco trying to get unused funds refunded back to correct gift card.
AS trip went on DH or I would stop at guest services at hotel and apply more money/gc to KTTW to cover tips, shopping etc.

Mrs06 - On the front page of this thread(fantastic new thread by Andre) you will find the hotel # but it will only get you the call-center. once there ask to be connected to POR and the department you wish. If it is for booking the call center will help. If the call center does not feel right or gives you info that from reading here does not compute than just call back and speak to another CM. Allways feel free to come back here for help.

If you look at the map in the first post, River View regular rooms are in buildings 14, 27, 38, Acadian House and Magnolia Terrace. Of those, all of them are already refurbished except for 27 - and that one may well be closed for its refit by the time you're there anyway. So your odds are already pretty good for getting a refurbed room, and adding a request as well should make it very unlikely indeed that you'd get one of the few older rooms in 27. So don't panic, and I hope you enjoy POR as much as I do.

Fire14-
I'm afraid the same thing is going to happen to my documents because I added a one night "room only" on to the beginning of our package reservation a couple of days ago. That will mean two separate reservation numbers.
I called Magical Express to give them the new arrival date but I have a feeling it won't go well. My OCD doesn't do well when things aren't correct!!!

We stayed in a newly refurbished room in the Magnolia Terrace mansion back in late September and absolutely fell in love. It was our familys first time staying at POR and we can't wait to go back!
