Well, thanks again to the helpful front desk, we were able to extend our stay until Sunday Very grateful. We plan to just relax and enjoy the resort, and visit DTD, over the next two days. No parks. It's been pretty packed all week, so getting away from the crowds and having some down time will be nice.

It will just be tough to know what is waiting at home for you!

Excellent. Great place to be stranded. We are expecting 24-30+ inches.

Does anyone happen to have the food court song on video? You know the one the staff sings and dances to every hour... the song drove Dh batty and now he is singing it all the time to drive me batty. I looked on youtube but did not find it.

Thanks Andre.

According to http://www.portorleans.org/ferryboats.php, they start at 10:00 and run every 20 minutes until 4:30, then every 10 minutes until 11:00.

Lol... I have been singing it periodically since we got back too! I had no luck on YouTube either...

Question about buildings

Hi,
I am very new to posting on here. I've been reading posts for over a year when we planned our first trip a year ago. We stayed at All Stars last year and are staying this year at Port Orleans!

My question is this, my family of four are traveling with my parents. We have reserved a Royal Room for us and my parents are staying in a regular room. We have not made any request because I don't know anything about doing that. Will we be in separate buildings or is that something I should be requesting that we be put in buildings at least near each other? I think from what I've read the Royal Rooms are in two of the buildings and the other buildings are just the regular rooms. I would like to be somewhat near them if at all possible.

Thanks for any help you can give me! We are so excited to be staying here on our next trip!

Welcome from another Michigander! Link your two reservations and ask for your parents to be placed in the Magnoila Building and for your Royal Room to be in the Oak building. (Some people have even received some pixie dust when requesting this with the second room being upgraded to a Royal Room also.)

One more sleep! We arrive tomorrow, can not wait!! I want to say thanks again to Venom and Andre for all your help! I want to say this before the thread was closed, before 250 pages and I was worried it would close before my trip but it looks like I made it! Reading this thread became a part of my nightly routine before bed over the last few months and it really helped to keep me excited about our trip!

Last question, what is a good time to check in? We are driving and I am just curious if there is a particular busy time to avoid?

Mid-morning to mid-afternoon can be a bit busy, but there can be sudden blips when ME drops off a load of guests at one time. Basically just check in whenever you arrive. If you've done Online Checkin that should help as even when there's a line it should move fairly quickly.

So sad

We loved our stay @ POR and have 2 nights left in Orlando (we are staying offsite right now) so i called Disney to see if we can get back in for the rest of our stay and NO ROOMS available . Nothing at all. Not even at any other resort.

I was not expecting that. I figured we probably wouldn't get a Royal Room again but never thought it would be 100% full at this point in the year
