Arrived back at home about 2.5 hours ago. We liked POFQ, it felt like home (we live 1 hours away from New Orleans), and we'll be staying here on our next visit next year.

How can I make such requests?
AND is there anything else that's good to ask for?

Thank you! all this thread and this entire forum are awesome
Try requesting building 5 facing the grass square...close to pool, close to bus stop, quiet, I think you'll love it! We've requested it upon check in and received it.

What number does one call to see if they have a PIN? Reservations? Will they give me a code so I may apply to the Travel Agent resize we currently have?

The location ideas bit has been covered by other folks, but to see the best way to do it please check out the FAQ in the first post or see www.portorleans.org/room-requests.php

Thanks I called and alas, no pin connected to my name, Owell

CM is sending a DVD which " may" trigger a pin. And I priced a trip while logged in with hopes that would help... Though I have never got a pin and priced several trips and ordered several DVDs....

Wish us well!

Good luck! We had never gotten a pin before until we asked for a planning DVD and priced out trips etc. Since then we've gotten 4 of them and have been able to use 2 of them. So you're on the right path.

second this. We had a corner room on the second floor of Bldg 5 two trips ago. You are close to the pool, the food court, the bus stops and the parking lot.

We leave in a little over two weeks and requested Bldg 5 near the front desk when I made our ressie.

the excitement is building!

Two weeks from this afternoon we'll start driving down, and then two weeks from TOMORROW we check into our king bed room at FQ!



I'm almost completely unable to think about anything else right now. Work...? What's that??? tee hee

The reservations agent was so kind, she did tell me that there are renovations going on right now and was I sure I wanted that resort, and of course I said YES I know about the refurb and I'm okay with it

I'll make sure to take lots of pics of the project and post them.

When can you make requests? We are going first week of august and booked a standard room. Can you make the request when you do check in ahead of time?

Yes, best to make your initial requests straight away to be honest, and have them added to your central reservation. Additional faxed requests are best about 3-5 days before you arrive.
