Call back there has to be something. I am sure that there are a lot of sad New Englanders who are stranded here and will be for some time. Flights are canceled through tomorrow. It is INSANE here. So glad I went for April this time. I hope you find something!

I would love to be stranded in Disney. What a dream especially as I sit here and type this while looking at a blizzard outside my window!

Best corner rooms in Alligator Bayou?

Hi all!

I was just filling out my fax request for 5 days from now (woooooooo!!!! can't wait!!) and I just realized I don't know which rooms to request in AB. Could anyone shed some light on which rooms are the best? We didn't pay extra for the preferred buildings--just Garden View. I'd like one on the second floor, in a quiet area with a pretty view.

Thanks a ton in advance!!

Then why not simply request "second floor, corner room, in a quiet area with a pretty view" and let them work their magic? That would most likely put you a bit of a walk from the main buildings/bus stop though, so perhaps you might want to suggest buildings 16 or 17 if possible, as those fit the bill fairly well and aren't too much of a walk?

? on faxing requests...

I'm reading a lot of posts in this thread talking about faxing room requests to POR - I've been told for several years that those don't matter anymore. Yesterday, I read a comment somewhere that POR is the only resort that still accepts and processes them. Is this true? What's the real deal? ...and most importantly, what's the fax # - how do I make this happen? I can find an old general fax # but not sure if it's the same one.

We have a King room and would love to stay in the mansions. ???? Insight from those in the know? thanks!!!!

The only question I can answer is that the fax is 1-407-934-5777 ... good luck though!!

Well I can't speak for the other resorts, but the Room Allocators at Port Orleans definitely DO read faxed requests, and do their best to help when they can.

As for hints and tips on how to do it, well the FAQ in the first post would be a great starting place, as would www.portorleans.org/room-requests.php.

Have a fabulous time, I hope you get to spend some of it just enjoying being back at POR too.

It'll be nice to try another section too - you did the Royal Rooms before, and now you've got the slightly different adventure of Alligator Bayou to explore. I love the lush landscaping there, and the more relaxed, informal feel to the quiet pools. And the kids will adore the fold-down bed!

I have a client booked in a Preferred room. She uses a scooter and needs to be on the ground floor. I called Special Services to put in this request and the CM told me it doesn't matter because the buildings have elevators . So I explained to her that only Magnolia Bend buildings have elevators and my client will be in Alligator Bayou which doesn't have elevators. She said "Sir I just checked and all buildings have elevators". I told her she needs to check again. She put me on hold for a few minutes. When she came back she said she called the resort and had them make a note of the request. I just smiled and said thank you. Oh brother.
