Congratulations. Glad you will be spending next August here with POR.

Good morning everyone else I have something to say...

Thank you Andre,
I will put my request in ahead of time

November Movie Lineup?

Would anyone know the nightly movie lineup for November at POR?
PortOrleans.org has the October and Halloween schedule posted but not November...

Thanks in advance!

I just gott off of the phone with Disney. I called to ask for a room request nothing much just upper level Oak Manor building (I booked a RGRGV). Well the cast member insisted I could not get the Oak Manor because the RGR are in the Magnolia building (really?). After a short but tense talk she just said "My job is to tell you what you can get for the price you paid" Well that's exactly what I'm asking for !!. I really don't like to argument with people and did not do it but I'm freaking out my reservation is all mess up. I mean I have the e-mail and the mickey-mail and everything looks o.k. I asked her to make sure we were talking about the right booking # and she just went (Who else would have an e-mail address like yours?) At that point I just said thank you and good bye. Is really the very first time I have a rude cast member at the phone and I don't know if is a good idea to call back today or wait until tomorrow. Some suggestions ?

Yeah, right... as you are no doubt aware, she was plain 100% wrong - just as well you know more about the resort than she does. Personally I'd have asked for a supervisor I think, as this is a training issue - if she was unsure she should have checked rather than bull****ing you.

If you contact the resort directly (by fax or via Venom's PM) they can log your request, which as you say is a perfectly valid one.

Yes - but remember that the air around it, and walking back to your room, is NOT heated. Just sayin...

Thats funny. Nice response. Yeah they are heated, but don't feel like it the second you pass the water line to get out.
