He goes from around 8 to midnight. He takes "breaks" but at his age it is to slow down the pace of singing and meet with the guests, ever since he had back surgery a few years ago.

But his show really stops running.

We are really looking forward to our second stay at POR in February. We went the same time last year and loved it!

Anyway, I've signed DD up for Y.E.S. class at Animal Kingdom. She and DH need to be there at 8:30 and no later. The park opens at 9:00. Will a bus be running to AK at 7:30? We are almost always rope drop people and have found that it works really well to get to the bus stop an hour before the park opens, but I've never been to the bus stop 90 minutes before so I'm not even sure if buses are running then or not. If not, I think I'll send them in a taxi just to be safe.

Thanks so much!

Welcome! We have done the birthday phone call twice for my son's 6th and 8th birthdays. It is Goofy that calls, not Mickey. We arranged it through the front desk (in person) once and I think on the phone once and stated what time we wanted the wake up call. The timing was just about right on both of them. First a CM comes on to ask to speak to the birthday person, then a recorded message from Goofy comes on, I think with a few words from the CM at the end. The recorded message is good enough to fool the little ones into thinking it's really Goofy calling and talking right now. Don't forget you can put the phone on speaker if you want to record this! It's a great way to start their birthday!

Buses start running at 6:30 am every day.

I went ahead and did on-line check in and just faxed my request for one of the mansion buildings, preferably Magnolia Terrace. Here's to hoping!

Thanks again for the wealth of information!

Good luck! I've had rooms both in Magnolia Terrace and in Acadian House on either side of the quiet pool. Our last stay in Acadian, we could see our prev. Magnolia Terrace room. Great locations!

How far is the walk from the Royal rooms to POFQ? I'm considering a standard view Royal room. Thanks.

I'm 8 days away from our trip and can hardly wait! This will be our first time staying at POR. we're booked for a Royal room - the main attraction for me is the headboards. I don't know where to request, so will probably not make any special requests.

I don't know what room category you booked, but center of the building was very convenient for us when we stayed in a RR in Parterre Place in August. We loved the proximity to the elevator, parking lot ( we had a rental), walking by the garden and fountain going from/ to our room, and quick walk to the bridge to south depot and main buildings.

O.k. you've got me now You helped me out the other day and now I see this post and it helped me again I didn't want to give up the garden view but at the same time we are also renting a car and I didn't want to be too far away from the parking lot You mentioned proximity to the elevators, which floor were you on? We usually request ground level but DH was wondering if we should get an upper floor due to the noise factor. Anyhow, sorry for rambling I guess I'm just getting so excited and I don't really have anyone to talk to since DH doesn't really get into the planning portion

Hi, we just booked a very last second trip to Disney for this upcoming weekend. We booked a garden view room and the CM I worked with, noted on our reservation that we would like to be in bldg 85 and close to buses. Just checking to make sure this was a good request. After reading through this thread I am wondering if the experts here may have more specifics for me. Our main priority is to be as close as possible to the pool and food court without paying extra for preferred. Is there anything more or less that I should request. I see that sending a fax a few days before may help, any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!
